I continue to cull from the foodstuffs on hand. Case in point: today, I made a quick, tortellini soup, for a Lenten offering the next few days. I had a box of low sodium chicken broth brought very cheaply (sale + large coupon)during the holidays. I also had a pkg of mushroom tortellini that needed to be used. A container with l/o carrots and Brussels sprouts was also grabbed, along with black pepper, French tarragon, parsley, chicken bouillon powder, some water, 2 stalks of celery.
Within 15 minutes, a delicious pot of soup was made. Perfect.
I also boiled a dozen eggs, to be used for egg salad or sliced egg sandwiches, if not offered up for breakfasts. We are out of coldcuts, I need to plan for DS's school lunches.
