I have made it to day III of my challenge, and I have to say I think I have done very well. And to think the Risotto I made Friday was enough left over for us to have lunch on Saturday and the roast from Saturday had enough left over for someone to eat on Sunday. Which brings me to Sunday, and what to make on Sunday? This one was the first one I really thought I need to go to the market and pick up some stuff, and as you guessed it my husband invited friends over to have dinner with us. What was I going to do??? Then it came to me ... Chicken in Tomato Sauce in the crock pot over pasta. This is one of those semi-homemade dishes, since there was some fresh ingredients and some jarred ones too.
This is what I did ...
Chicken in Tomato sauce in Crock Pot
1 lb of boneless thighs
1 jar of tomato/pasta sauce
1/4 onion diced
1/4 bell pepper diced
4 cups of pasta
Place chicken, pasta, and vegetables in crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
Cook pasta as you normally would have.
Serve with chicken mix over the pasta. Grate some Parmesan cheese and add some garlic bread for a full Italian meal.
Now that I have cooked my way though my pantry and my freezer for the past three days I am actually thinking of keeping it up till we eat more of the food we have in our house. It is quite amazing how much food is really in a well stocked house unless you really start to use it all. Not sure if I will be blogging about my pantry & freezer depletion any more ... but try it at your home and you will be surprised how much food you have even when you think you need to make a trip to the market.
