Monday evening I made the kids some steamed ravioli for dinner. They topped it with some Parmesan cheese and Aldi spaghetti sauce. No leftovers!
I made ground turkey burgers for my husband and I. I used a 1/2 lb of ground turkey that was in the fridge, one sleeve of crackers, some Worcestershire sauce, one egg, onion powder, garlic podwer, and a small amount of beef stock. I mixed this into two patties and baked then in the oven. I was able to use tow hamburger rolls, one sliced tomato, a sliced onion, and some lettuce to top our sandwiches. It was awesome!! The were no leftovers.
Last night I cooked a pound of ground beef, used up the last of the steamed corn in the fridge, and boiled some small potatoes. I layered the ground beef in a casserole dish, covered it with the steamed corn, and made some beef gravy. The beef gravy was made from a rue of butter and flour, mixed with some beef stock. I poured the gravy over the mixture and turned the potatoes into mashed spuds using some milk and margarine. I topped the casserole with the mashed potatoes and baked it in the oven. Shepard's pie folks!! No leftovers!
Today's' meal is chicken soup. I have three containers of gelatinous stock in the freezer. I took them out and put into the crock pot. I had one cup of cut up diced chicken in the freezer. That went into the crock pot. I had three cloves of garlic, one small red pepper that was sad looking, and one onion. It all went into the crock pot. I have four thin carrots that went into the crock pot. I added some water, a few spices, sage, thyme, poultry seasoning, parsley, and two bouillon cubes.....it will cook all day.
I'm going to make home made bread in my ABM and a small salad with what little fresh produce we have left.
