I'm using some of that huge batch of caramelized onions tonight to spruce up some mushrooms.



It's a lot of mushrooms, maybe 2 lbs. Some for dinner tonight, the rest will go in the freezer to have pieces chopped off when we're making steak, chicken, etc. It's so good, oh boy...

I sure did! As much of a recipe as I use that is. It's one you can add more or less of every ingredient to taste so there is a list of ingredients but not measurements.

It was a "meatless monday" feature on the blog:

I just made a gourmet side dish in less than 5 minutes total with frozen big batch items.
Previously sauted and frozen leeks, celery, caramelized onions with mushrooms, pesto, and bacon thawed in a pot with a splash of broth:

Throw in some spinach, salt, pepper, and a bit of green sriracha sauce, just wilt the spinach and stir it all up:


It is seriously delicious and it would have taken hours to prepare from scratch.

Last week's effort:
2 large pots of soup. Over night crock pot chicken bone broth with veggies and rice, roast beef stew with left over gravy and sweet potatoes.

I froze the beef stew in 2 portions for future meals we need to have quick.


HAAA, my finger's in the pictures! LOL.
Filled the deep freezer up with 20 fruit crumbles.


Banana bread, carrot loaf, wheat bread:


Whew, I'm tired. Oh, and I also browned some packages of ground bison, froze half for cottage pie or tomato sauce this week or next.

Dang, all your breads look so good! I made soft pretzels this weekend, they are delicious but we had no self-control lol. I ate 3 for lunch the day they were hot and then was still too full for dinner! Cheesy
