This past week I took it easy on cooking meals, falling back on some old favorites. It was a nice break and I got to spend my extra time doing other things related to cooking, like defrosting my freezer. It helped that we had subzero temperatures to work with, although I can say I’m quite ready for spring.
I also was able to take advantage of some grocery store sales and buy lots of red bell peppers ($1.98 / lb) and a whole beef tenderloin ($2.99 / lb). I first chopped up all the peppers, bagged, and froze them (I’m not allowed to buy peppers for a while now…I have a big supply!). Then I prepared the tenderloin into individual steaks, vacuum sealing them in pairs to freeze for later. Did I mention I love steak? Finally, it was time again to replenish my supply of prepared frozen cheese. Overall it was a productive week and we are now well stocked!
I’ve very excited about my meals this week. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them!
Oaxacan Tacos (NEW) and fresh pineapple
Lumpia (egg rolls) and fried rice
Chicken Parmesan, with pasta, green beans, and garlic bread
