    qsaver: food is getting expensive isn't it? If you think it's bad in the US, don't come to Canada!

    So far so good this week. I'm right on schedule with my menu plan. Alas, I am out of celery though. I thought a friend had given me a bunch of celery leaves I could use in soup. But I cannot find them. I will have to walk to the store and buy some soon. I want to make lamb soup tonight. I'm using up frozen lamb bones and stock from Easter.

    Decided to omit the celery and use celery salt for flavouring instead.

    Yes, peanut, I have gathered from the info listed on this site that Canada is outrageous!

    Day 16: We have had several really good meals in a row lately, so I decided it was as good a time as any to do an experiment meal. We had a pack of the new Kraft Mac n Cheese bakes. It was alfredo flavor. Well, I didn't really know what to serve it with, so I used it, added shredded chicken and made it the main course, Chicken Alfedo!!
    It was a HIT!!! Everyone loved it!

    We also got creative for lunch. We had leftover spaghetti sauce with meat but no noodles. I used the spaghetti sauce in place of pizza sauce and made Pita Pocket Pizzas. I really just used up some pita bread, the spaghetti sauce and colby jack cheese (I though we had mozzarella, but no!). It too, was excellent!!!

    Saving money and creating new meals!!!

    Tonight was a Swiss chard quiche, modified to include nutritional yeast and ground flax seed. I was able to omit the cheese and not have a flavour loss. Served with a blueberry muffin for me and garlic toast for the boarder and DH.

    Last night was a yummy Red Clam Sauce on Rice macaroni. Served with a Kitchen Sink Salad. Very yummy.

    Tomorrow will be hamburgers and homemade fries.

    Tonight's supper was hamburgers homemade. But we do it differently. Boarder and I do not like the buns, so DH got those while we had a plate full of vegetables and a patty. Very filling.

    Tomorrow is chicken.
    Monday is salmon
    Tuesday is vegetarian (probably a spinach quiche)
    Wednesday is beef again (probably meatloaf)
    Thursday is leftovers
    Friday is chicken
    Saturday is tuna
    Sunday is vegetarian

    Day 20
    This morning we finished off two bowls of soup from the freezer.
    Tonight we may have breakfast, bacon, eggs, grits. I am making breadsticks now. We are having a get together at church with food. I will have to see if anyone is hungry after church or we just need to snack.

    Ugh. hate it when that happens. Our over the fridge freezer sometimes gets overstuffed and the door doesn't close properly. Really got to watch that with this fridge. Hope you didn't lose too much Zakity.

    We didn't anything really. Surprisingly... What could be cooked and refroze was and what couldn't is being eaten. Though, a ton of the cat food was thawed out and they have been getting more than normal.
