Trying to be thoughtful planning meals these days so that nothing goes to waste, and sometimes have to use ingredients that I wouldn’t usually. It is easier to get grocery delivery now, although there were a LOT of substitutions on my last order, and a couple of things they just didn’t have. I really would like to get some chicken thighs, but no luck. Got chicken legs instead.
I found a mix on Amazon from Bear Creek called Creamy Wild Rice Soup, and thought it would be a good pantry item to have, so I bought a few.
Used it the second time to make soup on Saturday, browned up 8 oz. of mushrooms with some of the cooked chicken breast I got from Costco (their rotisserie chicken meat that they sell in 40 oz. packages) along with a teaspoon of powdered porcini mushrooms, 8 cups of water, the soup mix packet, and finished with a little half and half. It is really good, and will last for quite a few meals. Is it healthy? Not as healthy as home made, I’m sure. I could have added more vegetables too with the mushrooms. Maybe next time!
I snagged some bell peppers from Costco, so I think I’ll make some stuffed peppers, and use some toasted tricolor couscous that I bought from Amazon along with ground beef, onions and tomatoes.
I’ve been baking bread too, and even made a cobbler using frozen mixed berries (it was good!) What have you been cooking lately?
