Cooking once; eat several times

Monday morning, looking into the refrigerator and seeing a package of ground beef and one of chicken breast tenders, I knew I would be cooking today. I like cooking several main dishes one day and being able to eat for several days, like a mini smorgasbord. I checked in the cooler for available veggies: bell peppers, summer squash, zucchini, and fresh eggs.

I began with a egg/veggie/ham casserole for the Farmer’s breakfast.

Looks good, doesn’t it.

The Farmer brought in a butternut squash that had split, so although I hadn’t planned on baking squash, now it was on the list.

Ready for the oven.

Yummy!

The ground beef became meatloaf, most of it filling bell peppers. The part left was baked for sandwiches, one of my favorites.

One can of salmon and a can of mackerel became a salmon loaf using the Farmer’s mother’s recipe.

I baked both the bell peppers and salmon loaf at the same time.

I was adequately fueled by coffee.

Next, I attacked the chicken breasts tenders, Spike, Seasoned salt and flour coated the chicken and fried in olive oil. We’ll have these for dinner tonight, Chicken Alfredo.

Cooking results: which night do you want to come to dinner?

Now I’ll go back to my quilting, thinking to bake oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.

Oh, I did clean up my mess!

I’m enjoying playing house in this kitchen. Yes, this is the whole of the kitchen. At the left edge  of the picture is the refrigerator. Not a lot of counter space (understatement) but pleasant and homey.
