My mission this week is to use up items in my freezer to make room for a turkey. We'll be going out of town for Thanksgiving, but I'm still buying a turkey because they're so cheap this time of year, and we'll make it for our own family another day. I made brownies over the weekend and used up the pail of ice cream that was taking up a lot of room. We'll have smoothies for snack or breakfast a couple times this week to use up some frozen fruit. Here's what we're eating this week:
Sunday--I used the sweet Italian sausage in the freezer and the spaghetti squash on the counter and also sauteed some garlic/onions/bell peppers/diced Italian tomatoes. Added the sausage to the veggies and served it over the spaghetti squash.
Pile of peppers
Tuesday--Chicken stir fry with brown rice, using chicken and peppers from the freezer
Wednesday--Turkey meatloaf using ground turkey from the freezer, sweet potatoes, veggie
Thursday--Hot ham and cheese sandwiches and sweet potato fries (from the freezer, of course!) with fruit
Friday--Homemade pizza, will use pepperoni, peppers, cheese from the freezer
Saturday--Homemade vegetable soup that is in jars in the freezer, just thawed and heated in the crock pot, with homemade bread
I won't be grocery shopping until Saturday or Sunday, so I think I'll be able to make room for the turkey!
For bread last week, I made Caraway Swirl Rye Bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
