BUSY AT HOME
Friday, November 08, 2019
Well it has not been a great weather day here today. I have stayed home. I have clean up some of the clutter that accumulates each week. As we are eating up the foods that we have here, I took a small roast of the freezer and I am making a pot roast for us using one onion, 2 large potatoes and 2 carrots to cook with the roast. We are going to the grocery this weekend and I am taking stock of what we will need. Hubby is going to enter the chilli cookoff again this year so we will be getting some of the things for that. I have the dried beans selected that we are going to use this year. I have used a lot out of the freezer and the pantry. I told Hubby we did not want everything to get too old, etc so when it starts getting bare, we will restock.
I will be baking a ham probably next week as the one I like should go on sale next week. I get one that is about 6 pounds and we have a great ham dinner with fresh veggies, etc. We have ham sandwiches and I make a pot of my favorite, a big pot of white beans cooked with the ham bone making a great soup with cornbread. From this size ham, we get several meals. I will put a couple of slices to have with eggs and biscuits one morning. I freeze pieces of ham for use in soups, seasoning of veggies, etc. I use the vacuum sealer for this in such a way, I can cut the package for the amount that I want for each cooking.
