What's been cooking?
Monday became a clean out night: kids finished some leftover soup, I made a large salad, topped with l/o mixed gr/wax beans
my protein was the l/o cup of baked beans
Tuesday, I grabbed a jar of apple sauce out of the freezer for lunches, and some fzn, grnd meats
more istant potatoes
peaches were for breakfast (last can), cherry pie filling was used Sunday, the cream corn and onion was for Tuesday's dish
French-Canadian pate chinois. Wed found DD and I havin this as planned overs
I prepped ahead Wed night for Thurs's crock pot meal: 2 frozen, l/o pieces of pot roast
2 containers of the leftover, blended pork-beef with onions and mushrooms gravy that I served on Sunday
Stew veg: leeks, potatoes, carrots, celery, the rest of the Butternut, a can of mushrroms
Here's the prepared stew, to be turned on early Thursday morning before I leave for work.
This is what I came home to: I transfered the stew into a large Crorning ware casserole, added a corn starch slurry to the crock pot, and thickened the gravy before folding it gently over/into the cooked stew.
Fri night was a planned treat: take out pizza and a salad w/ DD.
