Sorry. I have been a ba-a-a-a-d girl. I will do better. I promise.
Monday we did our produce and meat run. We found organic, whole chickens for .99/lb. Got all they had! We love roasting whole chickens. So much you can do: enjoy eating it hot from the oven, make chicken salad, boil the carcass for stock, etc. Chicken: It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Oatmeal with apples and almonds
Salad – do-it-yourself let’s the kids decide what they want on their own salad. This means they eat it all up!
Stir fry with chicken and rice. Buying bags of shredded veggies makes stir fry super easy!
Blueberry Pancakes – this used up the last of the blueberries we bought a couple of weeks ago.
We found 5# bags of baking potatoes for 1.49 yesterday. We also found 24 oz steamer bags of broc, carrots and cauliflower for 1.49. We combined this today for lunch:
Toppings: 1 TBSP Butter, 1 TBSP Sour cream, 2 oz cheese, green onions
Chicken wings – some hot, some not
We took the left over baked potatoes from yesterday and diced them to make hashbrowns. Baking the potatoes takes the moisture out and they make very crispy hash! We diced onions into the pan with the potatoes at the beginning. When these were translucent, I broke in a couple of eggs, and added some fresh parm. YUM!
The girls baked a loaf of bread (GF, of course!) and we used that to make PB&J’s. Nothing can beat a PB&J sandwich on still-warm fresh bread!
carrots and apple slices are the perfect sides
The Girl made her world-famous meatloaf for dinner.
Rice and Green beans rounded out the meal
I will see you back here soon.
