What's Cooking? Sunday, April 5th

Having survived my shopping spree on Friday, I'm starting several dishes in order to get them in smaller containers and hopefuly create a little room in my fridge and freezer.

So far I've got a cheeseburger/broccole casserole started, as well as a pot of chili and some more of Kathleen's onion soup.

I'm splitting the broccole between the casserole and broccole soup. Broccoli takes up much less room after it's cooked!

Since I'm grating some sharp cheddar for the casserole, I'll also grate some more for a container of pimento cheese.

Whatcha cooking today?

What a busy day you have going there, Z! Hope you have a beer chillin' as a reward for when you are done.

With some celebrating Easter today (Happy Hoppy, everyone!) I sure hope no one is planning Hasenpferrer. I can assure you that Bugs is safe at our house. No real dinner tonight. Instead, it was a nice brunch of overnight, baked French toast (I used a braided cinnamon Brioche from Aldi's) and ham steak. Fruit salad of mango, tangerine, and red grapes. Tonight, we'll snack on cheese, more fruit, maybe crudites with the last of the hoomus. Snacking looks pretty iffy right now.

Ham, kielbasa, cauliflower gratin, green beans, cabbage salad, pickles and olives.

Dessert was a couple of low carb peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies with walnuts.

Supper will be a couple more cookies and a glass of skim milk!

No more cooking until the middle of the week, just heat and eat!

Marinated steak kebabs, sesame noodles and tossed salad. Bunny cake, cookies and ice cream for dessert.

I roasted a small whole turkey, unstuffed, and will have that along with gravy, mashed potatoes, buttered baby peas, homemade potato rolls with butter, iced tea and some vanilla fudge for dessert.

We're still dragging around, so we split an overpriced take-out salad bar priced by weight from a local grocer.

When I add it up, though, given all the many and varied ingredients, it probably would have cost a lot more to buy each ingredient separately. Hit the spot.

I used up some leftover roast organic chicken - adding cubes of it into a sauce of cauliflower, onion and pesto to mix into gnocci.

Plenty of cold beer, CG.

I got everything done but the pimento cheese and I can do that in a snap tomorrow morning.

Everything is put away except for the broccoli soup and the onion soup. I have to wait until they are cool enough so that they won't get my beer warmed!

I do seem to have room to juggle my fridge around.

It was a fun day and I'm feeling proud of myself for getting so much done.

Sounds like you've been busy cooking today too, AB.
