Those 3 Salmon patties nobody wanted, 1/3 bag of frozen french fries, freezer burnt periogi, a can of fruit cocktail, a bag of frozen crystallized broccoli, two boxes of rice a roni, the dregs of the applesauce jar—all gone. Some eaten up, some too far gone to be consumed.
It took a group of 11 of us to complete this weeks goal of clearing out the freezers, pantry and refrigerator.
The family came over tonight for this meal:
Mushrooms and Onions
Cherry Pie a la mode
****Starred items were hangers on from the past ???year???, the holiday celebrations, and from d’mama’s pantry, too. The beef was really, really good, despite the date on the label. I know you are thinking, how could she have let that meat stay in the freezer for so long. It needed a special occasion and a crowd that never transpired, until today. I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Roasted Tenderloin. Melt in your mouth!
We had fun evening. Seems one of the favorite things to do in our house after a family dinner is watch youtube videos on the tv. Tonight’s entertainment was 4 wheel drive jeeps and such rolling down mountains, or flipping over, or some similar thing. Everybody laughs, but mostly we enjoyed Colton’s reaction.
No photos taken tonight….
