Monthly Menu-February 2010

For the month of February, I've decided to have an "Operation Defrost" in my kitchen. It's time to use up or get rid of most, if not all of what is lurking and hiding out. This shouldn't be too bad because my upstairs freezer is pretty organized and I mostly know what's in there. However, in my basement, if you could call it a basement-it's really like a large cold storage area, I have another freezer. It's a chest freezer. I would not buy a chest freezer again. First of all, I can't even reach the bottom of the inside of it, but that's only because I'm short. Secondly, You forget what's on the bottom and you have to take everything out to get to it. Anyways, I'm pretty sure it's mostly apricots and raspberries we picked either this summer or last. I've got a few things in mind for the raspberries, but having a hard time figuring out what to do with my apricots. If you have any suggestions, leave me a comment.

I've really enjoyed my Sunday Soups. It really works out for us on Sundays to have something simple with meat and veggies all in one pot. I've had my eye on some of the soups this month for a couple of weeks and can't wait to try them. I'm also really excited for all the Greek food I have planned.

Not everything is new. Recipes already posted will just have a link. Otherwise, I'll be posting as I make them.

  1. Catchy: "Operation Defrost!" May I join you? My goal for this month is to spend as little as possible on food and to use up what we have (in the frezzer and jammed on the shelves)! Love ya!
