Some of our Meals Lately

Fish, cilantro lime rice and apple slices.

Here is just a sample of some of our meals lately.  Yes, we do eat a lot of canned green beans and rice.  They are favorites.  I do try to mix things up a bit and remake leftovers into other meals like a few slices of steak that went into making the soup you will see later down the list of pictures.  The small amount of dry fettuccini noodles that we not used in the fettuccini side dish (where I used the last of the bagged spinach before it went bad) were broken up and used in the homemade chicken noodle soup.  I am doing my best not to waste things as everything is going way up in price.  By the way, has anyone else noticed how bad the produce is?  I mean I bring tomatoes home and they start shriveling up in about 2 days! That is just ridicules.  Now before you ask how we can afford steak, know that it is venison or elk steaks that were given to us by Chris and Heather.  There is no way we could afford them otherwise!

  1. All your meals look delish!


  2. Yum! Delicious looking meals!

  3. All your food looks delicious and I love that you are frugal and cook like me.

  4. That's all American cooking. I don't mind canned green beans at all. I do tend to use all 3 ways, from canned, to frozen and fresh. I mix it up. I like rice dishes as well, but we don't eat as much rice as we use to.
