I’m officially bored. Any ideas?
We have a freezer full of boneless chicken breasts, a few drumsticks, a bunch of hamburger (which I freeze in the form of patties, thaw and use in other ways as needed, like in red sauce or tacos), and a bit of pork, both boneless loin steaks and a couple thin chops. There are some basic frozen veggies; corn, French green beans, peas, and chopped broccoli. There’s a mess of chopped sweet onion and green pepper, frozen for convenience, as well as a large sweet onion in the fridge. At the moment there is no frozen unground beef.
Elsewhere in the house are the normal staples; carrots, rice, dry beans of various types, barley, flour, less than a cup of Bisquick because I forgot to restock, herbs and spices and boullion cubes, etc. No potatoes, oddly enough.
Nothing fancy. I don’t want to have to go buy ingredients, especially stuff like scallions or fresh cilantro or whatever that I have never used.
No baking. We avoid that in this weather. Crockpot, stove top, microwave, even toaster oven are fine.
I feel like we’re in a rut of Mexican variants like burritos and tacos, pasta with meaty red sauce, plain old chicken fried with random seasonings and served with rice and a veggie, chili, and so forth.
