Tweaking the menus a bit
A vegetarian, Chinese stirfry over rice was planned last month for this week's vegetarian inspired, Thursday supper. A blend of sesame oil and canola was used to stretch the costlier, sesame oil. I grabbed the accumulating packets from the older kids' Chinese take out (soy sauce, duck sauce)to use as well
2, $1 bags of frozen stir fry vegetables from the Dollar Tree
Part of a gigantic cabbage that I sliced some cabbage off of, a medium onion that I peeled and sliced
My cooked, Aldi's Basmati rice
Tweaking this, so as to use up this past Sunday's leftover, roast pork
I also grabbed a container with pineapple chunks in juice, separating the juice out into a glass and refrigerating it but then chopping up the pineapple into bits Below is the completed stir fry
I also have 2, $1 bags of frozen pot stickers, also from Dollar Tree
Made in USA-awesome
I simply steamed them
My supper plate. Delicious, and helped to use things up before they went bad.
After dinner, I put the just washed laundry on clothes horses, by the wood stove. This saves me a ton of electricity, and adds needed moisture to the home.
