Well, what have I been cooking lately?  A lot, lol.  I have my IVIG infusion tomorrow and since lately it knocks me on my hiney for a good 3-4 days at least, I have made a lot of stuff for easy cooking.  Unfortunately my spouse is out of work at the moment so I wanted to save money over the few convenience foods I can eat.  I baked and froze up two loaves of bread.  I use the King Arthur Flour gluten-free bread mix, it is better than anything you can buy and makes more slices.  Thawed out from the freezer it doesn't need toasting.  I love it.  I made a big batch of refried beans in the crock pot.  Basically you cook a pound of pinto beans with 5 and a half cups of water, a half jalapeno(seeded), cumin/salt/pepper/garlic/onion powder on low for 8 hours then mash.  Save some of the liquid out and add back in as needed.  If you use chicken broth for some of the liquid it is really good.  That made five meal's worth for us two.  I grilled up chicken and froze a few whole cooked chicken breasts to toss into pasta.  Froze some cooked taco meat.  So, I have a freezer full of stuff that my husband will be able to easily put together, since he is home to take care of me.  I guess that is one good thing out of our circumstances.

 

If anyone has recommendations on cheap cuts of meat and how to cook them, I am all ears.  I have been buying ground turkey for half the price per pound of ground beef, for use in stuff where it blends in well.  Speaking of ground turkey, I had a friend raving about how wonderful tater tot casserole is.  So I tried it, and it is good.  Not up my alley with all that fat but was tasty.

 

gluten-free Tater Tot Casserole:

1 lb ground turkey, cooked (i used 3/4 lb)

2/3 bag Ore Ida tater tots

1 can progresso creamy mushroom soup

2/3 cup low fat sharp cheddar, shredded

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Combine it all in a 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for one hour.  Makes 6 servings.

I get ground pork.  Its usually much cheaper than chicken and beef and pretty lean.  My favorite thing to do with it is make stir fry.  I will mix Chinese five Spice into the ground pork.  Then I cook it like you would ground beef, but I don't break it up into teeny tiny bits.  I bet you could do the same for use with pasta - but use Ital seasoning.  Let it sit in the sauce overnight (works for turkey, too).  That helps it taste more like pasta sauce and less like turkey or pork.   :D

 

We have really enjoyed a turkey breast in the crockpot.  I put a stick of butter in the cavity, a little water in the pan and use some freeze dried poultry seasonings.  It cooks pretty quickly - 4-5 hours and falls off the bones.  then you can use it for soup or turkey and rice or turkey pot-pie or sandwiches, etc

Cooking up a turkey breast sounds really good.  My grocery store will mark meat 25% off late in the evening which is when I usually shop, and a lot of time it is turkey.  Next time I see a big turkey breast on sale I am going to snatch it up.  I could go for some pot pie, been years!  I will look at ground pork, too.  I have used that in pasta before when I just had some to use.

Last night we had a chili line grilled chicken, corn on the cob and salad.  For dessert we tried a Limoncello syllabub.  It was basically lemon flavored whip cream!  Quite tasty, but I see more potential for it as a topping for blueberries or a pound cake.

Tonight I made Tandoori Chicken with roasted curry cauliflower.  Was pretty good.  Now my house will smell like curry for a few days and when I walk inside after being out I will get hungry, lol.
