Apples in the dehydrator.
My goal is to have a full gallon of dried apples before the end of the season.
As for the rest of my meal plan for the week, I have a few dishes I am planning on, and the rest of it I figure I can scrounge something up...
Lunch/Dinner: Pad Thai (with rice noodles, seasoning, cashews, variety of veggies, possibly with chicken if I find some in the freezer); Pulled pork sandwiches (w/ buns I picked up last week for the single hamburger I made for myself after pulling ground beef out of the freezer instead of chicken); Grilled cheese w/ baked beans; Pot Pie!
And of course, I cook enough for 2-3 servings of each dish every time I cook, giving me leftovers for 1-2 meals later in the week. When you live alone, it is really hard to cook a dish small enough for a single serving, so this is my compromise. Plus, makes for less overall time spent cooking. (I enjoy cooking, but there is only so long I can stand to argue with my hotplate and toaster oven.)
Breakfast: Toasted PB&J; Toast w/ apple butter (I will probably make another batch of apple butter this week as well); Eggs, bok choy, and sausage served up on a bagel thin; Cereal w/ berries
I have various types of cereal, all of which seem to have less than one serving left in the box. So, hopefully I'll clear out that part of the cupboard and make some room.
On the menu for the beasts this week:
Chicken quarters (the cat gets only a leg or a thigh, not a full quarter)- Monday, Thursday
Beef scrap- Wednesday, Friday, Sat/Sun
Goat liver- Tuesday
They will probably also get a pig kidney or two thrown in at some point this week, and may or may not end up with more chicken than that, depending on how they do with so little bone and the organs meals.
