What's been cooking this week
Wednesday was dinner for one, so I used up the turkey breast Deli meat, and made a Turkey Havarti with dill sandwich on toasted bread
Thursday found me arriving home later than expected. First up: make some Italian bread crumbs, turning to my dried, bread heels
As a first time for me experiment, I made some mini meatloaves, as well as a small meatloaf (planned over for Saturday night sandwiches). I figured this would save me electricity as well as time.
I boiled some red bliss potatoes, cooking extra for Saturday (potatoe-egg salad on the menu)
I grabbed the baggie of broccoli and cauliflower that I prepped earlier in the week, into the steamer they went
My supper plate
4 for dinner Friday and while "leftovers" are listed for the menu, there wasn't enough to make up plates, and 2 of the 4 turn up their noses at leftovers. No worries: I sauteed a lone chicken-apple sausage that I diced , some fresh mushrooms, a leek, and later added some chopped chard and spinach. This lined the bottom of the quiche.
I made a custard a la Frugal Queen, and shredded 4 oz of Havarti with dill that was intended for use a while back, but had been lurking. Still unopened, it was fresh, just needs to be used. A leftover sliced tomatoe from sandwich making was lurking in the fridge, having become a bit soft as a result, no worries, this became a decorative topping.
The finished quiche. There was none remaining after dinner.
Since the oven was on, I baked off a homemade, strawberry-rhubard pie, later topped with strawberry ice cream, if desired
