    I was on vacay part of this week and was able to make chicken pot pie today. It's been cold & rainy and I'm freezing!! So, comfort food is calling me....The rest of the week looks like this:

    - chicken soup
    - chicken fricassee (new recipe for me)
    -BLT's
    - pot stickers (shrimp & scallop or pork)
    - beef tacos

    I made the chicken-tortilla wraps/pinwheels last night. They were good but I realize that within 24 hours the tortilla is getting soggy. I want to make these for the dog club open house but I think I would have to make them the day-of, not day before. Good to know beforehand for planning.
    Wednesday grouper burgers, rice, veg.
    Thursday Ratatouille & pasta.

    Will pick depending on the weather, hot or cold.

    -- potato & leek soup
    -- lemon chicken, broccoli, brown rice
    -- smoked sausage, green beans, potatoes?
    -- pork tenders, broccoli, marsala sauce?
    -- asian dumplings, fresh spring rolls, soup
    -- hot dogs, cole slaw?
    -- chicken/fish, ???

    Lot of question marks this week, depending on how hungry DH is or how tired I am.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    We had leftovers Monday and Tuesday. Those are all gone now. Wednesday I'll make gumbo. Surprised to discover no more garden okra in the freezer, guess I will have to buy it. I'll get ricotta also. I still want to try some sort of pumpkin lasagne. I KNOW there is pumpkin in the freezer.

    Tonight is London Broil, potatoes, broccoli.
    Dog club open house on Monday night, I expect a lot of leftovers: I made deviled eggs, sliced chicken tortilla wraps, cake, cookies.
    I kept enough ground beef unfrozen for burgers one night. I would like to make a pot of potato/onion soup. I noticed hubby bought thick bacon, which would be a nice garnish. I need to use up buttermilk, so maybe buttermilk biscuits one night (used some in the cake recipe.)

    Contrary- We have been shopping the pantry too. I thawed out and cooked chicken breasts for meals this week and am making cranberry pumpkin bread now. I made chocolate chip cookies the other day from chips that were in the fridge over 3 years...Still taste good IMO.

    I have a ham bone that I put it in the slow cooker with water to make a stock. Then I'll cool and drain the fat. Then use the stock, ham pieces, leftover pasta, onion, carrots & potatoes to make a soup. I have a few potatoes, lots of tiny carrots, an onion... I've never done it before and it popped into my head. So, I hope it turns out!

    Ru, the soup sounds good, almost like minestrone. What I'd call "kitchen soup", using up whatever I could find in the fridge or pantry. Put a big bay leaf into it, if you have any. Leftover canned tomato or sauce would work, as well. Any kind of greens or green vegs.
