  • I made this Tuscan Tortellini Soup yesterday - it makes a ton, is full of veggies (and no meat if you're feeling averse like me!) while also satisying my craving for carb-y cheesy pasta: https://www.cookingclassy.com/2015/01/tuscan-tortellini-vegetable-soup/

  • Oh geez....I honestly can't even think about meal planning. The nausea has gotten worse with each passing day. A BLT sounds good. And I think we may go out for Chinese one day. Who knows...

  • Tonight is leftovers. Then for the week we will have Roast Chicken with scalloped potatoes and green beans, turkey tacos with roasted corn, and spaghetti with garlic bread. H and I both work evenings/nights this week so everything gets broken down to individual servings for the one that's working and we try to eat all the leftovers so each meal lasts a few days.

    So Cream Can was actually really good, but a totally misleading name. It consisted of no cream, and nothing came from a can.

    Apparently when my H was young, his family went camping and they would take a cream can, apparently something found on really old farms? And then they would throw random stuff in it and cook it over a fire. 

    We did not use a cream can, we used our dutch oven. Potatoes, carrots, corn on the cob, onions and kielbasa, with veggie broth and some beer. Throw it all in, cook it over the coals for an hour. So going forward, we will call this dutch oven, and it will probably never be the same twice. 

    Here is a (n enormous) cream can.

  • Tonight- tilapia and pierogies
    Tues- crockpot lasagna
    Weds- chicken alfredo
    Thurs- leftovers
    Fri- grill porkchops/veggies/potatoes
    Sat- waffle iron pizzas 
  • @leslieknope that is really interesting - my family has a similar tradition that we always thought was funny to call 'grub' as kids, but I have never heard of the cream can. Appreciate the lesson (& especially the picture). I admit I was thinking something completely different  ;)
