Dinner 2

Dinner two went without a hitch – beef stew.

Used beef from the local meat market, Yoder Meats. We buy our meat in bulk, some pork, some chicken, some beef. And then we buy half a lamb from Clark Farms. We end up buying meat at the store, mainly chicken, because we like roast chicken. A lot. Plus we use the carcass for chicken stock.

So yeah, sorry, not vegetarians.

Anyhow, the stew had some of the onions, celery, carrots, cabbage, and potatoes. I had a can of chicken paste, but otherwise I’d have used some of my canned tomatoes from last year to make the paste.

Yesterday’s salad will be tomorrow’s lunch for the husband, along with some stew. My lunch will be quinoa and vegetable salad.

No eggs from the chickens today, which means they’re laying somewhere funny. Easter Egg hunt tomorrow!

Dinner 1/Brunch 1

Trying to use my produce up so here we go.

Dinner was a minor bust. They didn’t have mahi-mahi at the store, so we tried swordfish. As it turns out, we don’t like swordfish. Oh well. It was a try.

Used up some of the salad greens, an apple, some carrots, the mango, some peppers and pineapple, and part of the cucumber. And some onion.

For brunch we only had one egg available, so I made a hash with bacon (from the local meat market), onion, carrot, celery, peppers, the last of the leftover chicken from roast chicken last week, and some leftover cheese. The husband had a tangerine and I had some pineapple.

Now to enter that into my fitness pal.
