(This is the weekly post where you share your week of food. Did you have anything that really made your week, such as your favorite soup, a lunch out, or maybe you had something new? Find a new food product? A new appliance? Please do share!)
I am loving my new pan! None of my pans cook eggs well, other than my small (6-7"?) pan. So, if we want eggs for 2, I have been having to make them in batches, use too much oil, and fuss over them.
But, they don't stick *at all* in the new pan, and I can make them all at once, hooray!
We had a noodle dish from the starter in the freezer one night, and stew from the freezer last night. So easy, lol! A lot of work to get it prepped, cooked, and frozen, but so nice to be able to pull one out of the freezer and eat in 10-15 mins. if it's thawed.
I had a can of corn open when I was freezing them, and added a spoonful to each bag while packing it up. I like corn in stew, it needed using, so, why not?
I discovered a great reason to do it that way when we thawed and heated it. If the corn is kind of hard, and this batch has been, it's a bear to chew if you have any dental issues.
However, by putting it into the bags before freezing, the freezing part made the corn much softer, and pleasantly edible. I will do that on purpose from now on!
The plan was for Ds not to go to the store for a month, and he hasn't, for me. But, he had to go for another reason the other day...not Safeway, but the health food store.
So, since he went regardless, I got some broccoli, and a very small bunch of greens. I could have gotten by without them, but it's nice to have fresh produce. So, I will be prepping them, a little carrot (I have 4 left, but will only need part of 1.), an onion, a tiny bit of celery (literally an ancient center of a bunch, which, for some reason, is still good.), and some ginger, for fried rice tonight. I have always like fried rice.
I had gotten some chicken when we did the big shopping for the month, so pulled 1 breast from the freezer, and will add that.
Still hoping to make cookies, but we're working around a lot of factors, from Dh's back to other things that need doing more.
Meanwhile, a small piece of meat is thawing for some of next week's meals.
I've assessed freeze dried parsley. First, I have to say that nothing will replace fresh parsley. But, that said, the freeze dried is better than the regular dried. So, if you are ever considering wanting it for your pantry, I can recommend the freeze dried over the regular dried.
It was a pleasant food week! How about there?
