Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Got leftover parsley? Make it into pesto and freeze it for later.
  • You’ll probably have leftover tomato paste too. We like to freeze it in a zip-top bag and scoop out the amount we need for future recipes.
  • Extra green onions from the General Tso’s bowls can be used to top the chili. If you want other toppings (cilantro, cheese, avocado, sour cream, etc.), add them to the shopping list.
  • If you can’t find delicata squash, acorn squash can be used in the salad instead.

    Time to haul the slow cooker out of wherever it’s been hiding since we moved!
