Hello, hello, my lovelies,
I hope you all had a quiet Monday. Wishful thinking, huh? :) Well, my Monday was surprisingly normal. I know I'm going to jinx myself now and have a crazy day tomorrow... I was busy with work, laundry, cleaning, organizing, the usual stuff. And I actually had the energy to do it all. Love the days like this!
This week in the kitchen we are trying really hard to catch up on leftovers. I have a myriad of small containers, cans and jars in our fridge. Guess what we are eating for most of our lunches here? We are usually so good with eating leftovers but now that I have to count every carb, I kind of let it slide. I'll be trying really hard to incorporate all kinds of leftovers into different meals over the course of this week.
But before that, here's our food waste for last week:
A pepper and some chicken. I found the pepper in the produce drawer and it looked nothing like this on the other side. Unfortunately, it was all rotten on the inside too. And the chicken was totally supposed to be used up (I wanted to make some of these over the weekend. Don't they sound delicious??). I tried it Saturday morning and it was still fine but by Sunday afternoon at was already smelly... Blah... Chicken is too expensive to let it go to waste...
And this week we are eating (not necessarily in this order):
Mon. - teriyaki pork chops (scroll down for the recipe - I froze some and made some, and they were delish!), jasmine rice, peas, cheesy cauliflower
Tues. - fritatta (nice way to incorporate bits and pieces from the fridge :), green salad
Wed. - spaghetti with meat sauce, steamed broccoli
Thurs. - homemade pizza, salad
Fr. - chicken noodle soup with all kinds of veggies in it
Sat.- leftovers - cause we'll have more by then :)
Sun. - TBD
And what's cooking in your kitchen this week?
