Cooking for a purpose, planning ahead
Cooler temps yesterday had me and DD planning ahead. Usual offerings for bfst,
and more pantry/freezer clearout for lunch: a box mix of mac n cheese (sale/cpn deal), canned green beans, hickory sausages 9sale/cpn deal) served in buns. Not gourmet, it worked.
Monday's supper was planning ahead as well: 2 meals' worth of chicken drums were slow roasted in the oven
fresh from the farm, red bliss potatoes (extra cooked for Wed)
sauteed squash: zuke and summer squash from the farm, Ital herbs, fzn peppers/onions
My dinner plate
Besides a loaf of bread, not pictured), since the oven was on, we mixed up a box of brownies,
and a batch of Magic cookie bars, using up the rest of my mini chocolate chips, some raspberry chocolate chips that remained in my baking cabinet. Good to use those up!
A mix for pound cake was also baked off. Another good week at the CSA: blueberries, Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, red bliss potatoes, cuke, garlic, green beans, Thai basil
