Today I made a HUGE pot of taco soup. Some of it we ate for super, and the rest has been divided up and frozen for meals later in the month. I love taco soup!

I happened to Check the Thursday meat clearance/ markdowns at Kroger. I have a bunch of London Broil marked down to $3 - $4 each. I plan to cook them same as a pot roast, use differently in recipes.
One batch to be used as shredded beef, one as beef vegetable soup, one for pot roast & brown gravy, and the last batch to be used as philly steak and cheese. Not bad at all for $25 worth of meat!

Shhhh! Be va-wee, va-wee quiet. Dee is shopping for bargains!

Hoping to freeze biscuits today. My freezer is so full, I don't know if I can wedge them in. Aldi's has had some terrific markdowns on bread, so I had to buy it in bulk. So no freezer space. ):

made black eyed peas for new years day and about 2 small containers of those will go in the freezer for later use.

Havent made much else to put away. I am planning a day to get alot of cooking done to get us through the next month or 2 in the next week. Working on my lists now. Plus I am trying to find a few new recipes. Im worn out on the ones I have. Plus I am getting a good deal on chicken breast this week $1.86lb. (thats good for me) so I need to incorporate that.

I plan on cleaning out the freezers this weekend and rearranging things to make room. Plus see what we have that needs to be ate soon.

Well, I had plans on having tomato soup & grilled cheese for dinner tonight in front of the TV with my PJ's on. But I thought I should be productive since I finally have some alone time in the house. So I spent my evening in the kitchen.

Made Baked Oatmeal--Frozen in 1 cup containers enough for 2 weeks
Baked DH's pound cake--slice froze enough for 4 weeks
Chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for lunches--enough for 2 weeks--I bake in 11 x14 inch pan
I shredded up a lb of carrots, I want to make carrot cake tomorrow- to freeze. The rest will be for Mac salad for the week and salad topping.

Now on to cleaning out the fridge. I would bake more tonight but all my measuring utensiles are in the dish washer getting cleaned. I am too lazy tonight to hand wash. LOL

Have a great night everyone!
