Hamburger stew with sweet potatoes, because we are out of carrots but have about 15 pounds of sweet potatoes.  Wink
ROTTENLITTLEBOYS Mind if I ask what you put in your hamberger stew? I am always looking for new crockpot & stovetop recipies, & I LOVE sweet potatoes.

I did a big shop @ grocery store & farmers market today. =) I have Bananas, mango, green & red seedless grapes & strawberries all chopped & in bags in freezer. (great for smoothies, fruit sundaes or parfaits.) I bought a huge bag of boneless skinless chicken thighs & breasts. I broke those down into 3 serving bags, different sauces in the bags.
Lunch today was wraps (a tortilla spread with cream cheese, (I whipped it with sea salt, cracked pepper & parsely) shredded carrot, chopped granny smith apple & shredded grilled chicken), strawberries & mango, baby carrots.
Dinner will be grilled steak & potatos (marrinating in italian dressing in fridge), salad of baby spinach, maderin oranges & almonds with a dressing or soy, sesame seed oil & lime juice.  I have a coupon for Cold Stone, so that will be dessert later.

I had my neice & nephew the other day & they requested Peanut buter subs.... I forgot about those.

1 slice squish white bread (wonder, store brand etc) or 1 hot dog roll. spread bread with peanut butter. sprinkle with crumbled corn flakes or rasin bran. slice a banana in half lengthwise  if using bread lay banana down diagonaly across bread  or on hot dog roll. cheap & filling.  We didn't have them very often, but once in a while, for lunch with a glass of milk.

Another one my neice reminded me of, a sandwich spread my Mom would make, really good on wraps too!! for each person use 1 hard boiled egg, 2 tablespons chick peas (chi chi beans), a little shredded (grated) carrot, a little mayo, a little mustard, a little sweet pickle relish. salt & pepper. mash the chick peas a little with the back of a spoon or fork. Rough chop egg into bowl add everything else to taste, start slow esp w mayo & mustard.    Now when I make it I will add different spices, very good with cumin & or curry. Also I like to add chopped black olives & shredded broccoli "trunks".

My Gram worked as an inspector, inturpetor & liazon between the migrant workers 7 the farm oweners in our area so we always had lots of fresh produce. My Mom would strech fresh frut & veggies as much as she could.
Broccoli & cawliflower the florets would be steamed or put in to mac & cheese, the stems "trunks" shredded & tossed in a bag in freezer... she added it to everything. Same with shredded carrots (man I hatted shredding carrots when I was a kid, we did it all by hand)

~an apple cut in slices with a smear of peanut butter & some rasins would be a great snack or lunch.
~soy milk or rice milk & cereal for breakfast, snack or lunch
~chick peas, chopped green & or black oilves with italian dessing, or even add rice to make it a meal.
~shredded zuccini (very cheap right now) great in salads or taco or burrito fillings. Also great in scrambbled eggs or freid rice.  same goe4s for corn, esp if you have a way to grill it... grill several ears & freeze, after you cut it off the cob, if you now have a freezer.
