It was a better food week, since we shopped.
I made beef and broccoli (yeah vegetables!), also some chili which I made into stovetop tamales, and chicken fried rice.
Lots of leftovers for other dinners or breakfast/lunch.
A funny *rolling eyes* thing happened with our chicken. Ds bought some, and we bought some. They were in 2 bags, already divided.
Dh asked Ds which bag was his, and somehow they chose one, and Dh put his initials on his bag, which he left in our 'fridge for one day, because he wasn't going home.
The next day he picked up his bag, and I prepared to make broth with my whole chicken breasts, and the legs that I only get about once every 4 months or so.
To last 3 + months, I got 3 containers of tenders. One for chicken pot pie, one for herby strips, and one for chicken fried rice. I also got breasts for broth and chicken salad, and 8 legs for my lunches/snacking. Oh, and Ds talked me into trying one breast cut as if for cutlets.
But, when I opened the bag, there was only 1 pack of tenders, and 4 packs of cutlets. No whole breasts, and no legs.
Ds called me and asked what we should do, because ddil still couldn't lift the baby for a few days, so unless everyone came along, he wasn't going to leave to come back.
We finally just traded bags, figuring out the $ difference, because we each wanted to re-package and cook some.
I made the chicken fried rice from the single pack of tenders. Dh and I are going to try cutting the cutlets into herby strips, and chicken pot pie. That leaves 1 for broth and chicken salad. It's not as much weight, so I'll make a partial pot. As for the legs...another month I guess. Rats. I would have had him bring them back frozen another day, but his house is so cross-contaminated with gluten flour, nuts, soy, etc. that we agreed that his work surfaces weren't safe. Phooey, lol!
I got something this time that a lot of people don't think about. Radishes. Even if you don't like them raw, they cook up beautifully in a pan. I've cooked them thin sliced off of a mandolin with fingerling potatoes, shredded - in the case of daikons, and plan to matchstick some of these.
Tonight's dinner - leftover fried rice, yeah!
How was your food week?
