We found some great meat deals today at our local Harvey's and lots of garden items are coming in. Plus, I cleaned out the small freezer in the laundry room yesterday and found lots of "forgotten" items. So our menu this week will reflect all of that.
Chicken and dumplings, creamed corn, peas, sliced tomatoes - all found items in the freezer except for the tomatoes
Blackened salmon (sale meat), baked potato, salad
Fried bream and chicken gizzards (sale meat), cheese grits, coleslaw - my husband, father and little one went fishing today and caught 8 bream so we'll pair them up with some cheap gizzards and have a meal
Salisbury steak (found item from freezer), Kraft homestyle macaroni salad, cucumber salad (garden)
Cubed pork chops (sale meat), stir fry vegetables, watermelon slices (garden)
Taco salad with homemade salsa, ice cream bars (found item from freezer)
BBQ Ribs, corn on cob, (both found in freezer), fried okra (garden)
I would challenge each of you to dig through that freezer and refrigerator and locate some "lost" items for this week's menu. We recently found quite a bit of hamburger meat that had spoiled (freezer burned) because we had forgotten about it. Read about that here. That's just money being tossed away. So get up now and go check to see what you have that you have forgotten. You will thank me when you're saving money this week at the grocery store.
