What's been cooking? and baking?
Tuesday was my designated fish meal this week: I made pan sauteed Whiting fillets in a lemon-wine-herb-butter sauce; jasmine rice and green beans completed the meal
Wed was leftover, dinner for one night, I had l/o stroganoff and beans.
Thursday was pasta night: Aldi's fzn crab and shrimp filled ravioli in an herbed bechamel sauce that I made. French green beans on the side.
In the use it up, avoid food waste department: l/o sweet potatoes and l/o Butternut squash were transformed into sweet potato-squash-chocolate chip-pecan muffins
and lurking cranberry-orange relish was made into cranberry-orange muffins using more of the mandarin-tangerine juice that I squeezed out of soon to expire citrus fruit, the remaining juice having now been added to the OJ juice bottle.
