Saturday, May 9, 2015,is the US Post Office's "Stamp Out Hunger" drive. Not only is this a good cause, but you can also do yourself a favor and clean out your pantry. In 2014, over 72 million pounds of food was donated. Just fill your bag (see link for types of food sought) and leave it by your mailbox for the letter carrier.
This is always my trigger to also clean out the freezer and refrigerator, so guess what we'll be eating this week -- yes, a hodgepodge of cleaned-out stuff.
Sunday: Pork Tenderloin roast, Fresh roasted beets, Succotash and Twice-Baked Potatoes
Monday: Turkey Meatballs with Sauteed Peppers Over Pasta with Pesto (I don't know why I am into alliteration at the moment. Roll with it.)
Tuesday: Baked Chicken, Parmesan Zucchini Sticks, and Quinoa (I don't really like quinoa, but there is an open bag of it in the pantry, so we're eating it.)
Wednesday: Italian Spaghetti Squash (got to use up some mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and frozen tomato sauce) and French Bread (loaf found in freezer)
Thursday: Sausage (made by a neighbor) with Lentils (hullo, partial bag in pantry); steamed carrots and rest of beets
Friday: Chicken Pot Pie (yes, rest of chicken and assorted bags of frozen vegetables).
Saturday: OUT. Having done my good citizen duty as well as spring pantry-cleaning, I refuse to mess up the kitchen.
Have a good week, everyone!
