Fresh 20, Day 6

Breakfast: Breakfast Burritos $0 I knew I would be doing some real cooking for lunches, so I took advantage of some breakfast burritos I had stashed in the freezer. A yummy mixture of sausage, eggs, cheese, and potatoes – and I was shocked that the eggs reheated okay for me. Lunch: Macaroni and Cheese Cupcakes … Continue reading

Fresh 20, Week 2 Menu and Shopping

So, my major irritation is that there was no new menu for this week. In honor of Thanksgiving, they are going to not give out new recipes. Whaaaaat???? O.o I have the exact same three menus to choose form this week that I had to choose from last week. My husband said I should write … Continue reading

Breakfast: Cheddar Biscuits with Apples and Pears $0 These biscuits were supposed to be leftovers, but since we had Chinese that night, all of my menus got thrown off. So I made them fresh. Eh, not worth changing over from my biscuit recipe. You can pretty much add cheese to any biscuit recipe without needing … Continue reading

Fresh 20, Week 1 Recap

Okay, so let’s talk. I really like the concept. I really like the idea of picking a handful of seasonal items and making 5 meals out of them. But they have a different cooking philosophy than I do. There are no pizzas listed in any of the three menus available to me. There are no … Continue reading

Breakfast: Carrot Cake Oatmeal $0 I love this recipe. It started out as a backpacking style recipe, but the concept of eating vegetables other potatoes for breakfast has always been hard for me to picture. But eating carrot cake for breakfast? I can totally get behind that. So first we tried it as written, then … Continue reading

Fresh 20, Day 3

Yesterday was a no good awful really bad day. I wasn’t feeling 100%, and then I spent all morning talking to tech support to try to get my printer to communicate with either of the computers so that I could get some paperwork done. My favorite was the little girl who told me that I … Continue reading

Breakfast: Prune Muffins $0 These were pretty good, using my normal muffin mix and adding chopped prunes and poppy seeds. I have to figure out a way to chop prunes, though. Those are some seriously sticky things. Maybe dust them in muffin mix first, so at least the outside isn’t as sticky? Dipping my knife … Continue reading

Breakfast: French Toast $0 This is one of those recipes I learned at the stove from my mother. Once I had mastered scrambled eggs, this was my next step. Apparently, our recipe is weird, in that you can decide at the very last minute to make it. While I very much enjoyed watching Alton Brown’s … Continue reading

WAO, Week 2 Shopping

(look what I found in my drafts folder! Ooooops.) Shopping was interesting this week. Lots of produce, lots of stocking up on staples, and not much else. My shopping basket actually looked like I was stocking up to go back to my hunting cabin in the woods. Which I don’t have. But if I did, … Continue reading
