Saturday, 8.6.16, what's in your bowl or on your plate?

We are on a serious quest to clean out the freezers, 3 of them, side by side fridge, deep, and top on the porch fridge. So, tonight, andouille, butternut squash stew with corn, celery, onion stew/soup. Craig might pull out a piece of corn bread stuffing that got frozen from the last Turkey day but I'll pass on that cause it's already a pretty heavy dish for me.

Have some nice green beans from my plants, so thinking I'll try Pioneer Woman's recipe:

We'll just fill in with whatever else we find.

Medtran is invited over to clean out my freezers too. They need it badly.

Sorry, you're on your own. It will take us several weeks to work on ours. We've become hoarders. LOL! We're on week 2 now and have just begun to make a dent in the side by side.

We need to do that, too. When we get home, I'm going to take inventory of the bottom freezer in the French-door fridge in the kitchen, and the top freezer in the old fridge and the small stand-alone freezer in the sunroom. Plus whatever is ready in the garden now.

For tonight, we're on our way home and we're spending the night in Winchester, VA, so we'll find something to eat there.

Dawg, I've been doing green beans that way for years, but she needs her head examined if she only uses the bacon grease and not the bacon!
That's good grub for sure!

I'm doing some thighs on the grill and maybe I'll do some of those green beans too!

Chicken breasts on the grill, marinated in Stonewall Kitchen's bourbon molasses barbecue sauce (good stuff!). Leftover potato and green bean salad and coleslaw on the side.

I think I need to do a freezer clean out too. The other day I tossed out of frozen andouille sausage dated in 2009. I thought it best not to include it in dinner plans.

No plans for dinner yet. We had pizza late in the afternoon. Not hungry yet.

Seems to be a trend here. We're "eating down" our freezers, too. Three here. Two refrigerator ones and one big upright. Barely making a dent but I'm seeing progress, which is encouraging.

Tonight's meal included some grilled beef medallions, fresh green beans and tarragon noodles, along with the usual iced tea. I had taken dessert out of the freezer (lemon-zucchini bars) but forgot it.

Oh, well, we'll have dessert tomorrow.

HA! My deep freeze is packed away in storage; not to be seen nor used until our new home is up and running.

I have Pesto filled Chicken Thigh Rollatini, my way...
along with a side of thick Spaghetti with a simple dress of EVOO, Garlic and grated Parm, oh and some dice heirloom Tomatoes from the Farmers Market we went to this morning.

We ended up just having grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches.
