OK. I know. I make all these promises and I break them. Naughty, naughty me. Things are just so busy and blah, blah, blah…
So here we are on Wednesday, let me catch you up.
Monday we went for our store run. We found the following for $1.49:
3 packs of Mushrooms
5 lb bags of Fuji apples
5 lb bags of Red Delicious apples
3 lb bag of lemons
bag of org celery
bag of baby Romaine lettuce
3 lb bag of onions
In addition, we gathered 6 lbs of Kale and Curly Mustard greens from Mom’s garden. Their garden has been crazy productive all winter, and we are very thankful.
Apple Breakfast Cobbler
Butter, sour cream and cheese
DinnerLettuce wraps – chicken, cabbage, carrots, onions, water chestnuts
Hashbrowns (made from the left over potatoes from lunch yesterday)
Homemade chicken noodle soup – Yesterday I bought a pack of chicken breasts, brought them home and filleted them. We used the meat for the Lettuce Wraps, and then boiled the bones with celery and onions and spices to make stock. We used that to make the soup today. To the stock we added carrots, celery, onions and noodles.
DinnerSteaks (we found them marked down to half price at the store Monday. We bought 2 and just split them.)
Mac and cheese (such a comfort food! We used De’Boles corn pasta for this.)
Kale and Mustard Greens from Granny’s garden
So that is this week so far.
