So decided to wash and cut these beautiful veggies, in spirit of getting things ready for the weekend cooking session.
But my-oh-my! I think I got overly excited at the grocery store (or was I just hungry?), because I definitely bought enough for one of two things:
1- Three weeks worth of meals
2- To feed a family of 175!
Cabbage, cauliflower, eggplants, celery, green & yellow peppers, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots, celery root, zucchini, minced garlic, and chopped onions (last two item not shown).
Here's some of what I made thus far: cabbage soup, spaghetti sauce and chicken with creamy mushroom sauce.
Then used some of the sauce to make a lasagna, and some grilled veggies! (Gees, I still cannot believe how much food I made this weekend!) .
PLUS...believe it or not: even made an Indian veggie pâté! Whoohooo!
So I saved half the veggies for next weekend (zip-locked them in a freezer bag and put them away in the freezer), and did the same with the celery root in hopes to make a warm and hearty soup next weekend. Six and half hours later, I have to look at the bright side: no shopping, washing, chopping or guessing of any veggies next week (yessss!).
