I don't feel as though I've been posting my own food in here the last few days, just commenting on other people's progress. I think that's partly because once again I was mostly eating through food that I'd brought home from work.
Anyway, today I ate the kidney beans I cooked last week with olive and red pepper antipasto. Out of the 3 different flavour profiles and bean combinations that I made last week, this one tied with the standard baked beans. Quite nice, especially with the last of the corn bread, and a whole avocado cut up in chunks and served on the side. I have single serve containers of all 3 different types of beans in the freezer - I'll look forward to having this one another time or two.
That was lunch. For dinner I made a baked potato in the microwave, and had the last of the scrambled eggs they sent me home with from church on Sunday, on a pita, and put under the broiler with some green onions, some crumbled up basil leaves from the freezer (frozen from my balcony garden at the end of last summer) and cheese.
Now, this is more freezer cheese, but not the freezer cheese I've posted about before. I want you all to have this straight in your minds. When I re-joined this challenge there were two Ziploc bags of cheese that I'd cut up and frozen after a reception a year or so ago. I've posted about those before. Those are both gone. And there were 3 mozzarella balls in the freezer, bought for $1 each at Shoppers Drug Mart because they had a "manager's special" markdown on them due to close expiry date. I've mentioned these before, and one of them is gone, two more in the freezer. But there was also a bag of pre-shredded cheese, free with purchase of an Old El Paso taco kit and jar of salsa, if you'd previously bought an Old El Paso taco kit that had the special coupon "free cheese with your next purchase" on it. What I tend to do is go through the cash with the box with the coupon on it, put the groceries away in the car, then cut or tear out the coupon from the box, go back and get my 2nd kit and free cheese right away, and go through the cashier a second time. So now, I'm working on using up that cheese.
So, now I feel better. I see I am actually making progress after all. Two ziplocs of cheese and one cheese ball are gone from the freezer. Another bag of cheese is underway. And, dare I say it? It seems like the great wall of frozen food/cold Tetris of storage containers seems a teeeeny bit less formidable when I open the freezer door...
