‘Twas cold and wet in these here parts today. Gloomy skies make me appreciate the sun so much more!
Here’s what I served my family today
Breakfast – Fresh Pineapple, Chocolate Butterhorns
I stocked up on pineapples before Christmas for 88 cents a piece. Yes, really. So, I cut up one for breakfast and served chocolate butterhorns that I pulled from the freezer last night.
Dinner – Soup Night – Minestrone, Cheesy Chowder with Butternut Squash, and Corn Bread
It wasn’t what I had originally planned for tonight’s menu, but the cold, wet weather forced my hand. I tested a cheesy chowder recipe for the cookbook. I had a butternut squash leftover from our CSA in October. Added that; it was yummy! I made minestrone for those who don’t love creamy, delectable soups. We had cornbread on the side.
So far, so good. Everything’s from the freezer, fridge, or pantry.
