This weekend was an exercise in prepping for the week. In order to fill up my fridge with vegetables, I went with an old favorite Tri County Produce. I haven't been there in awhile, but I walked a few miles on Saturday with friends and was in the area. And they have coupons. I have never used a coupon there, because their prices are so reasonable it's VERY hard to spend the amount needed to get the coupon, unless you are buying meat and wine. And I don't buy much of either. I managed to spend enough to get 5 free ears of corn. They were HUGE and very sweet too. Not local, but good.
I picked up some discount bananas and tomatoes too. I lost a couple of tomatoes (went bad before I could use them) and the bananas are destined for banana bread. I MEANT to make chocolate covered frozen bananas, but haven't had the energy.
Saturday night was pizza night (with corn and salad). I made the dough in the bread machine and par-baked it. That's always good for one more meal too. At least for now. I can foresee the day when both pizzas will be gone in one night.
Sunday was the prep day. I made a veggie frittata for lunches this week.
eggs and milk
Monday night was our 2nd pizza night, and also the night of my quilting group meeting. We did a potluck. I happened to find this recipe on one of the blogs I read, and it seemed perfect. So I made that on Sunday too. Our quilting potlucks are hilarious. The last one (last month) had half desserts. This one - not a single bite of chocolate, but a lot of carbs. 2 loaves of bread, 2 people brought crackers and cheese, I brought the sesame noodles. Then two people brought fruit, but they BOTH brought green grapes and red cherries. Hilarious. Plus carrot soup and a vegetable dish.
Up for the rest of the week: a stir-fry with kohlrabi, peppers, and broccoli and some teriyaki meatballs from Costco. Probably a skillet pasta dish with canned salmon - maybe a creamy mushroom sauce. I bought mushrooms. I can make a cream sauce. Should be doable if I have the energy.
