menu monday

this week i'm trying to use up some things in the pantry and freezer.

saturday -  fresh tomato basil soup, grilled mozzarella and gouda cheese sandwiches, roasted asparagus. oscar requested grilled cheese, and we ha a ton of bread to use up. the fresh homemade tomato soup was yum-eee

sunday - cajun baked catfish, smoked gouda cheese grits, cool southwestern salad. i guess i was feeling ambitious to try three new recipes in one night.  the catfish was not my favorite - but jeremy said it probably had more to do with the fish than with the recipe. the southwestern salad was ok - i really expected to love it, but i think i was a bit too heavy-handed with the dressing. the cheese grits were AWESOME. i ate the leftovers for breakfast. this used up a big bag of catfish and cleared out some freezer space.

monday - we're invited to a luau today!

tuesday - venison roast with carrots, onions, and potatoes in the slow cooker. i think this is the last of our venison stash.

wednesday - cabbage roll casserole - cabbage roll flavors in a lasagna layout. this will use up a bag of chopped cabbage that's in the fridge.

thursday - rice pasta w/ homemade spaghetti sauce and sauteed mushrooms, spinach salad.  that rice pasta has been in my cupboard for ages! i also already have the sauce frozen.

friday - chicken stir fry. this will use up chicken and veggies in the freezer, teriyaki sauce, and whatever other veggies didnt make it into other meals this week.

your pantry and freezer are a lot more exotic than ours! too bad about the salad. it sounded like it would be good.
