11/14/10 Sunday Dinner

My box of Commodities this month included a 24 oz. can of beef with juices. It's shredded beef in delicious juices, but also has a LOT of fat in it. I warm it up in my frying pan and pour the juices off into a container and put the container in the fridge to be defatted.

Half the meat will be put in a baggie for another time, and the other half will be used in tonight's dinner:

Spanish rice with rice cooked with onion soup mix and frozen,
a can of diced stewed tomatoes and a handful of frozen chopped broccoli.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

We're having BBQ chicken sandwiches with homemade baked beans. Chicken noodle soup for lunch... and that finishes off the whole chicken from yesterday :)

I have another ball of pizza dough from TJ's - whole wheat. So pizza for dinner.

I stumbled on a recipe for Herbed Chicken and Dumplings for 2 this morning. I am going to give it a trial run. No sugar added Fruit Cocktail on the side. Comfort food.
