Dinner: Bean Burritos
The big pan of pinto beans that I made on Sunday were stretched to cover various meals for three days. They were made into Sunday & Monday night dinner and also lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday. Like most food I make, we usually eat on it until it's gone.
Lunch: Rice & Cheese
Dinner: Pinto Bean & Cheese Quesadillas
Snack: Apples & Cheddar Cheese
Lunch: Pinto Bean & Cheese Quesadillas
Dinner: "Salisbury Steak", Mashed Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables
Lunch: Leftovers from Tuesday night dinner
Dinner: Spaghetti & Garlic bread
My daughter and I worked side by side in the kitchen and made potato soup. I cut up the carrots, onions, and potatoes while she gathered up all the ingredients and actually cooked the soup.
Afterwards, I took all the vegetable scraps and placed them into my electric pressure cooker along with a bay leaf, garlic, peppercorn and water and turned it into this beautiful vegetable stock. No food waste here today. :)
I went to the apple orchard on Thursday to pick up some apples and I made cooked apples that day as well.
Friday & Saturday:
We still have plenty of potato soup to have for dinner on Friday & Saturday, so no need to cook unless we want to these days.
