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
