Shopping from the freezer and pantry
I pulled what I'll call "breakfast foods" out of the garage freezer: marked down turkey bfst sausages, bacon bought on sale + cpn, my last backup lb of butter, 2 homemade, mini pumpkin breads.
Lunch and supper will also be using some on hand ingredients: 2 cans of tomato soup plus the leftover, white rice from last night will be used to create old fashioned, cream of tomato rice soup-perfect on this blizzardy day (is thate even a word?) Supper will use an additional 2 cans of tomato soup, one onion, 1 lb of marked down ground beef, and more frozen rice, this time, my usual brown rice, that was frozen when I over cooked one weekend (kids plans changed last minute). I will use these to create a family favorite: lazy golumbki casserole, to be baked off in the mini convection/toaster oven.
