Yesterday/Monday: Began the day by walking to the butcher shop for 5lbs of ground beef, 5 lbs of ground pork, 10 lbs of Milanesa res (beef sliced incredibly thin) and 2 plump chickens. After walking home and changing clothes I went to HEB (drove, bummer) for 5lbs of bacon, 5 lbs of Italian sausage, 9 cans of tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, 4 lbs onions, 1 large jar of pickles, and few other items needed.
The result by days end --
two roasted chickens, meat pulled from the bone -- (one protein 3 meals)
15 C of homemade chicken stock made from the bones of the roasted chickens (frozen 3 C portions)
45 roladens with bacon, pickle and onions (frozen 2 per bag with extra onions)
3 LARGE pots of ragu (still finishing their day 2 cooking today with a little more added tomato sauce; will freeze later for a bzillion meals.)
…and a batch of chocolate chip cookie in bar form.
It’s been quite a Monday marathon – and the larder is again well stocked.
What a fabulous day off.
