Eating from the freezer and pantry this week, so I can rotate fresh meat and produce in, as it comes to market this spring and summer.

March 19 - 25, 2023
Sunday
-- turkey breast, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce (have 1/2 of a turkey breast tenderloin in freezer; cranberry sauce was canned after Thanksgiving)
Monday -- chicken a'la king, salad (will cook drumsticks in the crock pot all day, then pull the meat for a'la king; open bag of peas in the freezer)
Tuesday -- pasta made with leftover chicken and/or turkey, salad
Wednesday -- Souper Supper -- tomato celery soup, grilled cheese (18 months ago, I made and canned 1/2 batch of a condensed tomato soup recipe and still got more than a dozen pint jars. Want to clear them out, so I can make fresh and adjust a few things for a new batch)
Thursday -- salmon, rice, coleslaw (this vacu-packed salmon has been in the freezer too long)
Friday -- pizza, salad
Saturday -- ham, baked sweet potato, waldorf salad (vacu-packed ham slices from Christmas; apples languishing in the crisper drawer)

DH needs to watch his cholesterol ... I have been looking on Pinterest for Mediterranean diet ideas. Here's the thing ... he doesn't like veggies! :eek:

DS and I would LOVE this .... https://weekendatthecottage.com/mediterranean-cauliflower-salad I have always hid veggies ... not sure but could I do 1/2 the cauliflower but add lentil/chickpea pasta????
