Sunday morning I slept in. We had to get up very early to get Jeff and Belle out the door, so I went back to bed and slept until 11.
I ate peanut butter toast and scrambled eggs. That gave me white rice, brown rice and peanuts.
For dinner, I made taquitos in beef and chicken using leftover meat from last week. I took the meat, shredded it, and added onion, a can of green chilies, salt and homemade taco seasoning mix to taste. This gave me corn, green chilies, onion, chilies and garlic.
I used this recipe for the instructions on how to fill and bake time, but I made my own filling using what I had on hand. The result was wonderful. I have kept this recipe and I will continue to use the rolling and baking instructions with whatever leftovers I have on hand, dressed up to be Mexican.
Breakfast was scrambled eggs. We’re doing soft, easy foods as Trey is still down with the flu.
Lunch was leftover roast taquitos. I also had some pumpkin pie hummus and raw carrots. That gave me pumpkin, sesame, chickpeas, cinnamon.
Dinner was roasted chicken and roasted broccoli and cauliflower.
Breakfast was oatmeal with peanut butter and cinnamon. Again, soft foods for my sicko.
Lunch was Burrito Beans from the Menu Mailer that I used to publish. That gave me pinto beans, tomato, chilies, onion, and garlic.
Breakfast was oatmeal again, and lunch was a ham sandwich. That gave me white rice, brown rice and oats, which were not new.
For dinner, I made over two gallons of chili, and due to a mistake in reading the recipe, I ruined the whole batch beyond repair. I had to throw it out. We quickly made omelettes with salsa to eat a late dinner. That gave me green pepper, tomato and onion.
I ate a handful of pistachio nuts through the day.
Thursday morning started with a huge bowl of rice into which I stirred fruit compote I had frozen from the previous batch. That gave me elderberry, cherry, cranberry, red apple, green apple, strawberry, blueberry, plums, and dates. I drizzled peanut butter thinned with almond milk over the top, and included a big handful of walnuts.
The bowl was bigger than what I could eat and there was some fruit compote left over, so I ate it again for a late, small lunch.
For dinner, we had baked eggs in cheesy hash brown bowls. We used dairy-free cheese. This gave me white potato, onion and parsley. We substituted sausage for the bacon.
I’m spending the next week or three working to clear out older items from the pantry and freezers, so the meals might look a little disjointed or piecemeal, especially lunch and dinner. The budget suddenly became too tight to buy groceries due to an unexpected expense, so I’m going to pull from our food storage instead of shopping. I am trying to eat up what we already have before it goes bad and still get my 40 plants in. It might require a lot of creativity to get there.
I ate a big bowl of oatmeal early Friday morning. I woke up badly overheated and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I fixed myself a nice bowl before laying back down to take a nap at the time I would normally get up.
Friday lunch I had leftover BBQ chicken and rice.
For dinner I had a chickpea pancake that contained chili powder (the only ingredients were chickpea flour, chili powder, water, salt and oil) and was topped with homemade spaghetti sauce and ground beef.
Beside it I had a nice salad that contained mixed Spring greens, craisins, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, radish, sunflower seeds and a maple vinaigrette. The Spring greens contained spinach, green leaf lettuce, mizuna, tango lettuce, green oak lettuce, red leaf lettuce and chard greens.
I ate two pieces of the pizza pancake.
Breakfast was scrambled eggs. We slept in, knowing that the winter homeschool formal was that evening, so it would be a late night. I expected to be up to 1am.
So I was alone for most of the day. I ate leftover chickpea pizza pancake for lunch and dinner, along with salad.
I also had some chocolate chips and some Smashmallow marshmallows as a treat while the kids were gone.
