An Odd Lunch, But Trying to Use Things I Have
Making an effort to be more frugal and less wasteful, this week I made sure to eat breakfast and lunch at home this week. I dragged out my Vitamix to use it more often.
I did buy some P.F. Chang's frozen Mongolian Chicken for one night's dinner from the grocery store and put a pot of rice on (from the pantry). It supplied two lunches and a dinner, and I had some remaining short-grained white rice.
Today, I poached a small salmon filet and added the last half-cup of rice to my plate as the basis of my midday meal. From my freezer, I used the last of frozen mixed fruit, a half banana, a half lime (no peel) and some apple juice in the Vitamix, along with a handful of fresh spinach. Voila! A bright green, very tasty smoothie packed with vitamins. I toasted a crumpet for a bit of "chew" and crispness on the side.
I may have been embarrassed to invite anyone over for lunch, but it was a healthy meal that filled me up and I did not waste any money or food.
Do you ever eat meals that seem to not make sense, that you would not serve to guests?
