Made a double batch of this hungarian mushroom soup last night, so had leftovers for dinner tonight. Super tasty if you like shrooms and can easily be made vegetarian if you use veggie broth instead of chicken stock: https://themodernproper.com/hungarian-mushroom-soup

Ooh, I have a ton of mushrooms to use up. I have no sour cream, but I have whole milk yogurt and all the other ingredients, so this soup will be on the menu this week. Thanks!

I'm thinking meatloaf. My son wants to try & make homemade pasta, so we will probably give that a try as well.

Tacos with leftover ground turkey.  Sadly, we don't have an avocado, but they will be okay.

I have a late call with APAC, so we'll be having leftovers. Most likely, chicken pesto casserole over spinach

Saw a NYT cooking article for eggs baked over sauteed onions.  Planning to try that, but I'm going to use leeks and add some sliced new potatoes to make it a one pan meal.

Penne pasta with red sauce from the freezer, and a big green salad on the side. My mood is very low today, and that was as much cooking as I could manage. The carbs and vegetables helped, mood-wise.

Sweet potato, mushroom, and black bean tacos (https://showmetheyummy.com/sweet-potato-tacos-recipe/).  Topped with red onion, lots of cilantro, and a little sour cream.  Pretty tasty.

Now I have a stack of corn tortillas (which I never buy), so I'm thinking breakfast tacos tomorrow morning, and perhaps another taco variation later in the week.

Broccoli quesidillas (big flour tortilla, refried beans, layer of cooked, chopped broccoli, cheese, fold in half, cook in a hot skillet in a little oil). Falls into the kid's category of "monkey food" (as in "could be cooked by a", not "tastes like")

Ended up with cream of broccoli and leek soup since it was just a cold, rainy day that called for soup.

Tonight a big salad and a redux on the frico chicken breast I made last week, with a side of sauteed onions.

My son has a beef roast on the smoker.
I'm pickling and canning asparagus, so we'll have some regular asparagus sauteed in garlic and oil.  I may use some of the ends from canning to make cream of asparagus soup tomorrow, if I'm feeling motivated.

Red beans and rice (https://www.ranchogordo.com/blogs/recipes/red-beans-and-rice).  I haven’t seen a smoked ham hock in the store for weeks, so I used a smoked pork jowl and some andouille sausage (I don’t usually put sausage in my red beans and rice, but BF likes it).  Sautéed okra on the side.

I think I'm going to do curried chickpeas with rice.  I've got a block of tofu that I need to do something with, but I'm the only one who eats it, so I'll probably bake it this weekend for pad thai (or just make a nice dipping sauce and eat it like chicken nuggets).

Tacos with turkey and diced mushrooms, topped with roasted bell peppers and red onion and homemade guacamole. This should use up some veggies before they wilt or rot.

I'm planning to make a keto friendly chicken alfredo dish. It will use some heavy cream I need to get through. I'll serve it over cauliflower rice for my husband, and with pasta for others. This will use the last of our chicken, and we haven't been able to find any for three weeks. So, let's hope it turns out well!

I made a nice red sauce with "pork juice" I saved from kalua pork, a jar of home-canned tomatoes, and two small cans of tomato pastes, seasoned appropriately.

Some for pasta, some for a pizza (we'll either make pizza tonight or tomorrow).  Since I made the sauce, I might save the cream of asparagus soup for tomorrow.

Now that the food supply chain has stabilized in China and we are able to find most everything we need, and get decent delivery times, we are trying to use up our emergency stash of food.

Today, we are having noodles with pork ribs braised in leftover bulgogi sauce that I found in the fridge, along with frozen baby corn I found at the back of our freezer. We also have a fresh loaf of bread baking in our bread machine.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with two packages of vegetarian meat floss that I bought in a moment of panic and weakness back at the end of January.

Last night we had https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1020754-spicy-white-bean-stew-with-broccoli-rabe which was really delicious, especially with this: https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/algerian-flatbread-241505 (also delicious, and the couple that were left sitting on the counter overnight are not yet too stale. Win!)

We already have a pot roast slow cooking in the oven for this evening: it's 30F out and currently there is freezing drizzle falling from the grey sky. We'll have it with mashed potatoes (with parsley that needs using up), roasted brussels sprouts, and a baked butternut squash. Leftover cake from last night, if there's any left by then.

We're also taking advantage of the weather to bake some bread -- we started some sourdough last evening, and hopefully it'll be ready to bake by this afternoon/evening. (the house is cold, so rising is going ... slowly.)

@jeninco, you can dry parsley so it lasts for ages. A bread proofing tip: find a smallish cupboard, empty it out, then use a hair dryer to heat the space until the walls get warm. Then put covered dough in and close the door.  It's easier to just warm your oven a bit, but if that won't work, a cupboard will. You can also use your microwave if you're not using it, because it has a better seal. Just boil water for a couple of minutes (make tea!) to warm it up.

That was what inspired me this time around!
(Properly, it's a levain: the initial piece was a hunk of regular bread dough that I held back, rather than an honest-to-gosh sourdough starter. It's been through several iterations by now, though...)

We always try to use the last of our prepped food before we move on to new recipes. The kids don't love it, and it gets a little boring, but it's a carryover from crazy insane work weeks & long commutes. Those are now gone (mostly), but minimizing waste is now a bigger priority than ever.

So, we'll have a smorgasbord of leftovers that each diner will select from
Salmon (x1)
Chicken alfredo
Pasta & spinach
Meatballs & pasta

Our menu for the week is up in the air, as we wait to see what my husband can get at the grocery store this week. We're thinking carnitas & perhaps kebabs & rice.

Tonight was a bagged salad from Costco that DH picked up on his last run. Served it with Nigella Lawson's Linguine with Lemon, Garlic, Thyme and Mushrooms. It calls for fresh thyme, which I did not have, but I had a fresh homegrown lemon, which nicely masked the fact that I used dried thyme. Sauteed a couple of Aidell's sausage for the carnivores and called it good.

Tomorrow is DSS's birthday. He wants tacos, which is easy-button and I'm going to make a Smith Island Cake, which should be fun Thanks to @SwordGuy for mentioning it. It's a completely new thing for me.

Umm...   You're welcome???     I'm confused because I don't remember doing any such thing or even ever having heard of a Smith Island Cake.

Our version of chilli con carne.

Salsa made from onions, chillis, garlic, capsicums and tomatoes.

Meat sauce from mince, baked beans, paprika and cumin.

Then served as baked potatoes, meat sauce, grated cheese, salsa and greek yoghurt. 

It is cold here, so comfort food.

We’re planning on zucchini fritters (will use up the last of the zucchini and scallions), roasted sweet potatoes, and either smoked sausage or eggs.

Tomorrow’s plan is beans and rice (will use up the last of the bell peppers).

I think I will need to brave the store on Monday or Tuesday morning. We seem to be able to manage 1.5 weeks before needing to restock most of our fresh vegetables.

That is what I'm finding too.  I have been trying to stretch out to two weeks, but it's probably pointless because DH doesn't think he can live without bananas and will go to the store every week for them.  Hoping I can grab some frozen veg this week; the last few weeks the freezer aisles have been entirely wiped out.

Just now putting together a meal plan that will put off shopping until Tuesday morning.
 Tonight I'm thinking stirfry chicken over spaghetti squash.

Since we eat mostly vegetarian my hubby is in charge of preparing meat if he wants it. Yesterday he did the grocery shop and came home with both ribs & meatloaf. Tonight he is making the ribs and I'll do some baby smashed potatoes to go with it...yesterday we make mediterranean-style pizza with sourdough crust. Tomorrow I'm making a spicy black bean stew w/ butternut squash.. heaps of good leftovers..

Last night was homemade pizza (with homemade crust and sauce, easy and delicious!)

Tonight will be a loaded cauliflower thing with.... something.  Probably just use up some of the beef my son cooked on the smoker earlier this week.  Otherwise he can dig around the fridge and see what looks good.

Maybe I'll make some rye drop biscuits too.  Those sound good and I have a ton of rye flour on hand.

Last night was homemade pizza for us too. We tried a new one, potato and rosemary. Tasty. Added to our usual margherita and goat cheese/fig/shallot (we always do 3 small ones).

Tonight was a noodle dish DH found recipe for in the paper.  I think it was Hong Kong style, with actually 5 separate dishes that you mix together to your liking? It felt like kind of a lot of work, but was a nice change of pace.

We also had pizza last night, with salad.

This evening DS1 used the leftover pot roast from Thursday to make a shepherd's pie, with red lentils (they completely break down), onion, edamame, corn, and ?? I think there was something else in there? It had the usual mashed potato covering, and was lovely.

We have a cauliflower to use up in tomorrow's dinner. I'm thinking indian-ish.

We ended up just eating the loaded cauliflower (I have a headache, son will finish the super hot goulash he made last night).  I still need to use up the beef, and this made me realize it's been a while since I've made cottage pie.  So, cottage pie it is!  (tomorrow...)

Tacos: some of our bulk ground beef somehow found on sale this week (the remainder of which we will freeze and should last us through most of April); shredded cheddar; salsa; avocado; sour cream; El Milagro tortillas (YUM).

Maybe supplement with some stale chips in the fridge with the dregs of some queso dip; then it's likely one of us (two, if you count the toddler) will have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Yep, tonight will be beans —a mix of Ojo de Cabrito and Rio Zape from Rancho Gordo, refried with mirepoix and various peppers and seasonings— and brown rice, topped with cheese and salsa and served with corn tortillas.

My 13 y.o ended up making chicken tenders last night, so tonight we'll have crockpot carnitas.

Breakfast for dinner: leftover bacon from chili late last week, scrambled eggs with cheese, biscuits, the dregs of some fruit on their last legs.
