Chili! Black beans, kidney beans, green peppers, spices. Minimal, but cheap and tasty.

macaroni & cheese with broccoli, tomato, and leftover turkey. Only used 2 pans because I threw in the broccoli with the pasta when it was time, and I was able to pull together the sauce in the time everything took to boil. Pretty damn good for 10 minutes work, and way tastier than the boxed stuff.

Modified the recipe a fair amount to suit my tastes (also 'cause IDGAF about recipes), and they turned out pretty great fresh out of the oven. We'll see how they hold up tomorrow morning, expectations are high.

Breakfast was better for me health wise. Had 2 hard boiled eggs, a banana, and orange juice. Right now I am about to eat my lunch which is a delicious looking chicken burrito from some Mexican place by me. Looks amazing and can't wait to bite into it. I LOVE Mexican food :)

I love Mexican food, tooooo! For lunch/dinner/whenever I make my next meal, I'm going to make homemade tortillas, potato-spinach-Rotel fixins, and rice with Rotel.

My self-imposed challenge is to not buy any groceries until next year, and that will actually take a bit of creativity since my fridge is empty other than condiments and water. I have enough rice for one more meal.

Oy!

I just ate two pieces of toast with strawberry jam, and I'm still sipping on my coffee as I check my messages :)

Just had a yummy apple.  To me, apples taste better when I cut them into wedges, instead of just biting into the whole apple.  Weird?

Now I am cooking wild rice, to eat with leftover steamed carrots.  Yum.

Totally not weird. This is my stance on apple-eating as well. I also feel like biting into an apple ends up making my tummy feel hollow and hungrier after I've finished eating.

Apple cutters for life!

I'm brewing some coffee and getting ready to cook some french toast with strawberry jam.

Breakfast late in the day as i'm recovering slowly from last night: egg and bacon sandwich, which I happily had all the ingredients for already.

Just wrote up a fridge, freezer and pantry inventory, so I expect I'll be eating a few unusual meals based around using things up.

Dinner tonight was wonderful!

Spaghetti squash topped with chicken, red peppers, and spinach, seasoned with this Mediterranean seasoning blend I got as a gift.  So glad I have enough leftover for lunch tomorrow!

tex mex Brussels sprouts sound like a thing... were they actually good?

Just had some leftover polenta, with some extra olive oil drizzled on top, a little cheese, and some Bragg's.  It hit the spot.  Now I have my eye on some leftover sweet potatoes.

Leftover chili and polenta.  Found it this morning in the fridge and said "What the heck is that?"  Was delighted to identify it and recall that is only 2 days old.  Perfect afternoon snack!

I recently (a month or so ago) discovered Pippin apples at our produce market and they have become one of my favorite snacks.  Eating one now (cut into wedges, which I also prefer over eating whole), while waiting for my crockpot experiment of Ethiopian chicken and lentils to finish cooking!

Ah!  Another soul who prefers to eat apples in wedges instead of whole!  They taste better somehow that way, don't they?  And at least for me, I think I get more of the apple, too.

Maybe next weekend? We made probably 15 of them, and they were all eaten that day between 4 of us. They looked pretty much like fancy hot pockets.

Awesome! Glad you liked them :) My aunt made some this year and made her own sausage, with some fresh sage, marjoram and chipotle. Was delish, I will have to experiment the next time I make some.

It is totally worth making a whole bunch at at time and freezing them.  We spend a day making them and have weekend breakfasts for months, freeze them uncooked on cookie sheets and stick in freezer bags (I do vacuum seal them to keep them in the best shape) in one meal size servings.

Started with garlic and ginger in olive oil, with cumin seed and sesame seed, then threw in two eggs, some black beans that I cooked up yesterday, the last of my leftover cooked polenta, and slices of half of a leftover sweet potato.  Oh, and a bit of cheddar cheese, black pepper, and Bragg's.  Yum.

All-the-vegetables-we-own vegetarian Vindaloo curry: carrots, chickpeas, potatoes, chickpeas, spinach, chickpeas, onions, and chickpeas, with a metric ton(ne?) of yogurt stirred in for good measure.

It would've been Vegan, but I thought coconut milk with chickpeas would be really weird.
