Yesterday's dinner was half a cabbage, a zucchini, green onions, and leftover grilled chicken stirfried, with pot of rice. It was a round of "use up produce before it goes bad."
Made stone soup - I throw end-of-life veggies and meat into the freezer, then make stock with the scrap, bag it and freeze it. I took a bag of that, some very wilted carrots, a leftover half onion, and the leftover rice. I also added a frozen chicken breast and fresh thyme and rosemary from the garden. I got a huge pot of yummy soup out of entirely extra bits of food. To go with it, I started a batch of 5 minute bread last night, which costs less than 0.50 for a loaf and takes almost no active time. We'll feed 3 adults and 2 toddlers off that for dinner.
I had a container of mixed berries that were on the verge of going over, so I mashed them in a pot with some sugar and cooked them until they made a lovely syrup. We ate it over homemade waffles for breakfast, and the reminder will keep much longer in the fridge than the fresh berries.
