Not bad. Only bought raisins as a treat. Rest for for cooking and freezing. I am eating alot of sandwiches and increased my salads.
Apples are for Charlie & Chance.. very small so perfect for their am snack. I bought a huge box of Applesauce from AZ - it's one of my take with BS foods.
I used up all my frozen Pineapple the other day when I made the pork Chops. Browned chops in butter and a touch of olive oil. Meant to add some broth but forgot. Seasoned with Rosemary & thyme and S&P. Had 2 smaller ones for 2 meals with veggies etc. The third will be for a lunch -- frozen right now. The chops are thin cut.
The 4th one was size of two chops so I diced and added to the Fried Rice.
Olive oil and butter
a tad of toasted sesame seed oil - good combo
tossed in Diced
- white onion, 1 lg roma, frozen green peas, frozen green beans - the long ones, pineapple, corn off the cob, red & green bell peppers
Finally the diced pork chop
stirred and heated then added cold cooked long grain white rice. Added S&P Soy Sauce and ground ginger, diced garlic, & sesame seeds. & a touch more Sesame oil.
I have some herbs & spices I need to buy like Star Anise. One of these days. 8-) I really want my Herb mixes. All McCormick of course.. I love their mixes. I will email what is on my list - right now can't remember where I put it. ROFLOL!
Anyway the Fried rice came out great and I added some pineapple from the chops.
I had sauce from the chops leftover - butter, olive oil, etc.
Diced a bunch of frozen pineapple and browned in the chop sauce. I had added some Thyme & Rosemary while cooking the chops so there was some of that in the sauce. Not bad, at all.
Oh, well, just realized I am not posting this is any type of order. Phooey! LOL.
I have been eating Avocado toast often, unless like the order from last Friday and the avocados were kinda yuck. I used what I could so not a total waste. But that's the point of buying from IPFoods. Take what you get.
Alright here is my Schwans order. It will arrive tomorrow as will the IPF order.
I love Fridays. 8-)
$6.49 - 1 large bag of frozen peas. Good sized peas, very fresh uncooked and I eat them with Ramen, plain white rice, and anything else that strikes my fancy.
$6.49 - 1 8 pack of half ears raw corn on the cob used in soups, salads... and toss cobs in the soup as well.
$11.49 - 1 pack of partially cooked Crispy Fish Fingers - Lunch
$8.99 - 1 Pumpkin Pie - uncooked
$10.99 - 12 Apple Blossom apples cooked with cinnamon sugar and just needs reheating.
$14.59 - 1 pack of cooked sausage 36 thin long ones. Just reheat. Will last me along time.
free delivery and there are a few items that will be on backorder... not sure what. And that's fine with me. Total with a the points I earned on my last order total is $6.80 less. $52.24
Schwans delivers only frozen every other Fri. IPF delivers only fresh every Fri. Works perfect for me.
Ok that's all my foodie news. So Now what you had going this week.
Charlie is sitting next to me pawing me to announce WALK time. LOL I told him to wait... so he went to the back door. ROFLOL!
A big shopping. That is what I did last week with boy and it was stuff I needed and a few things like the gate decor I wanted. I am so glad you have a regular schedule. Boy takes me when he can.
I bought grapefruit also but from IPF. Small but good. I know what you mean about treats. 8-)
Oh that's too bad you weren't able to get the amt of chicken you wanted. I am now buying chicken but the pack is 2 small boneless, skinless breasts, with a maybe enough chicken breast pieces to make 2 more breasts.
When you say you buy packs are they whole chickens or parts that make up a whole chicken? I have given up on drumsticks and thighs, etc.
I'm glad you got a few. I was only able to buy two cans of beets and Mexicorn for my Tamale soup.
I wish I had a car so I could go to the co-op myself and the Italian Deli, and the Hippie store. LOL Oh well. Hope he can get some Chicken.
IPFoods is very ORGANIC based. Nothing with chemicals, etc. So a few $'s added but worth it.
I haven't celebrated Thanksgiving since 2017. Ate at the Kids house in SA. One of Boys rels was in town.
I have had chili on Christmas and Tamale Soup on THanksgiving a well. I do not have anyone to celebrate it with. I focus on DD only.
I use to bake bread and pastry and all that is in the past. Inspiration rarely strikes me now.
Instead I have a huge box of yarns and with an intention to get to work on knitting the ones DD can't use. She has a system from Walmart that is very east for her to use. It is a simple system and she has made me a winter scarf and she can make hats also. THing is there are holes in some of her projects. 8-) Still she is working hard on them... every day, but often she has to undo what she did.
Well, I guess we are both doing ok. I buy fresh food every fri from IPFoods. But maybe only once not twice from Schwan's. Depends on my budget and my needs.
Ok Charlie, get your ball. I'm done ROFLOL! He loves to nag! 8-) Have a good food week.
