Friday Food Round-Up!

TGIF.  This week’s menu was so cheese-centric and so so so good.

What we ate from the pantry this week: lentils (at last!  they are gone!), macaroni (one more week…except now we’ve cooked with it enough that I might by more.  Oops!), Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix.

Sunday – Lentil Soup, Grilled Cheese with Turkey, Brie, and Cranberry-Orange Marmalade

Ding dong, the lentils are gone!  The soup was delightful (and a nutritious-type thing after Thanksgiving).  The sandwiches were the best way to honor the last of the leftover turkey in our fridge.  I wasn’t sure if Marcus would be into the marmalade, but he was digging it too.

Monday – Creamy Potato Soup (Bear Creek Soup Mix), Grampy Jim’s Ham Turkey Sandwich from Farmhouse Rules


These were back on the scene this week because in addition to being delicious, I wanted to use up the rest of the deli turkey hanging out in our fridge.  Poof, gone.

Wednesday -Help With Hamburger from Farmhouse Rules, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

This is yet another meal that I’ve planned because I know Critter enjoyed eating it last time so I was hoping he would enjoy it once more.  Plus, it’s growing on us too.

Thursday – Corn, Cheddar, and Scallion Strata, Leftover Garlicky Wilted Spinach

Marcus had a work happy hour and that was going to leave me with zero time for dinner.  I actually prepped this on Wednesday night before I made our actual dinner so I could stick it in the fridge and then stick it in the oven just in time for dinner on Thursday.  In terms of The Actual Meal, I have been dreaming of eating this since I ate it the first time and it makes a massive amount of leftovers, so I knew we could freeze a bit.

Miscellaneous – Earth Cookies


I almost didn’t make these, but then I realized otherwise I’d eat like…$10 in granola bars.  So I made them.
