|zucchini casserole, pork loin, salad|
Dinner tonight was frugal. Salad greens bought on sale and with coupon, zucchini casserole with tomatoes from the hens bucket of food, free pork loin. The salad was romaine, radicchio, carrots. My parsimony went into full swing when I saw the nice condition of the tomatoes in the scrap bucket, right on top of other unfortunate vegetable. Tomato rescue=saving money. Of course, I burned the pork loin, not all of it, but enough.
My divided Corelle plates make it seem like I am dining out....at a hospital.
Realizing I had not added a few notes to the zucchini tomato casserole recipe, I amended the recipe in red. Onions were not part of the original recipe. One day, I accidentally put onions in. It was good, so they stayed.
I used four slices of bread for two casseroles. It seemed like I was skimping on bread, but the casseroles were delicious.
bread--whole wheat from senior center
tomatoes from hen scraps
2 Tbsp butter
peelings from zucchini
leftovers from tomatoes even after salvage
My dehydrated onions were used. I only put about eight little pieces of onion on each layer.
Have you made this yet? Do you ever withhold food from your hens for yourself?
