But I have only used a bit of the Quartered Chicken breasts. These are boneless chicken breasts that were sliced into quarters.
I wanted skin-on bone-in quartered chicken Breasts
That had leg & thigh and part of breast. I think Boy had my Dgs pick a pack out. They were sliced chicken breast slices. ARRGH.
I don't want a whole Chicken any more. Instead I buy legs and thighs or half / whole chicken 2 breasts. Plus quartered Chicken with leg, thigh & breast
They did buy me a large pack of Rib Eye steaks. There were 6 so I am having 2nd today.
Also they bought a large pack of skinny pork chops. What I asked for. 8-) 10 chops.
Next month I am going to ask for 1 or 2 containers of Chicken livers.
From Schwan's I bought two large bags of fish - 1 of Cod fillets and the other of Salmon fillets.
ALso I am stocked up on frozen Asparagus, green peas and broccoli. Also quartered corn on the cob. I only use one quarter per meal. Plus some for Tamale soup if I don't have any Mexicorn. If I am in a hurry I use the canned corn, if not I have lots of peppers Y,G, O & Red on hand to add to the corn from a cob.
I have eaten more roasted potatoes that I then mash. Boiled as well for potato salad mostly.
Breakfasts are possible Cinnamon bread, greenish bananas and greenish strawberries. They ripen so fast the kids finally buy me the least ripe B & SB. Ripe Bananas are loaded with sugar vs the greenish ones.
I have lots of frozen loaves of bread: No white but Rye and multigrain, etc.
Big deal for me was I bought a six piece set of kitchen knives. Made by Auiikiy
I did not want an expensive set nor a cheap one. This was about $30. So worked by me.
8" small cleaver - I gave to Boy as he Buys Big pieces of meat for his BBQ's
8" Chef knife
8" Carving knife
3.5 Paring knife
and a Ceramic peeler
I also bought 2 sets of Stainless Steel peelers for veggies. All kinds of veggies including cabbage and lettuce for salads.
There is 1 Y shaped and 1 L shaped in each box.
I go through peelers fairly often. LOL So now I have 3 Y shaped and 2 corer's - L shaped.
Today I am off to buy a - I just bought a Hamilton Beach Food Processor. Under $50. 8 cup capacity that chops, slices, shreds, minces & puree. Uses 450 wattage. More soups for me. LOLOL
Yeah! I just checked off three items from my kitchen NEED list. It's been a long time coming. 8-)
Now for some cheap stuff.... alum bread pans the small ones, "paper" plates & bowls. I really need to find 2 or 3 larger sized funnels for birdseed, dog food, and one for dry stuff.
Down the road I need a dozen mixed pint & quart sized Ball regular & wide mouth canning jars.
Now, back to recipes - I finally used that 8oz jar of Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Halves in Olive Oil with Italian Herbs.
That is why I bought the food processor.
I boiled up some Penne pasta - but had to prep the tomatoes - once olive oil drained into a measuring cut to use later.
Need to mince the tomatoes why I bought a processor - add to processor MINCE
Fresh basil - need to buy some plants
Parmesan cheese - I buy small blocks now
Grated Pepper & salt
and the reserved olive oil.
Plus as needed some of the pasta water to thin the sauce
Mix well then toss with the penne pasta.
Oh my gosh soooo good.
