But what in the world does one do with overly ripe pluots?
(First of all, what is a pluot? Apparently it's a cross between a plum and an apricot. Interesting!)
I don't have equipment for canning, so that's out. I could try freezer jam much like I did with blueberries. I'm not super optimistic about how that would work. Of course we could just eat them as they are, but I'm not that big of a fan of how these particular ones taste (something about the texture). Advice? Recipes?
|Sushi, Stuffed peppers, Sweet potato casserole, Sue-Sue's Casserole w/okra and tomatoes|
Without further ado, here's the plan for this week:
Breaksfasts: Smoothies (I have been loving these lately--we're doing a combo of milk with frozen bananas, blueberries, and strawberries. Our smoothies are so thick and the blueberries make them perfectly sweet), cold cereal, Blueberry Zucchini Bread
Lunches: Leftovers, Sandwiches
Dinners by weeknight:
Monday--Sushi. Need to think of a good go-along for this. We will probably do salad.
Tuesday--Enchiladas with tomatoes, lettuce, fresh guacamole
Wednesday--Dinner at a friend's house
Thursday--Chipotle Chicken with Peppers, Memaw's green beans, and carrots
Friday--Pesto Chicken Pizza and salad
Saturday--Chicken Pot Pie (recipe from the $5 Dinner Cookbook!) with Mashed Potatoes
Sunday--Headed out of town to my parent's for the week (yay!).
Stay tuned for later this week when I take you grocery shopping with me and explain how I balance couponing, eating less processed food, and the budget.
