Thinking ahead to grocery day
As previously posted I grocery shop once every 2 weeks, usually planning on the Thursday before. So I'm a little early with my planning this week, mostly because my fridge was due for a clean-out/food inspection. You gotta love the odd leftovers that you find hiding in the fridge, like a half-eaten container of yogurt that my 4 year old probably started, couldn't finish and put back in there. Anyways, what I found were a huge amount of onions and carrots. I must have 3 bags of onions and 3 bags of carrots (2 large, 2 mini). So I'm wondering how to cook them up in the next week or so. I have a few ideas, Donna recently posted a French Onion Soup recipe that I'd like to try. And I haven't made my carrot-bran muffins in a while (plus I should get a picture of them on here.) But I know even after making those, I'll still need to use up more onions and carrots. So I implore you, the foodies, to hook me up with something good. Please send a link to a delicious treasure that I can try out. I'll post my results with your recipes on here as the next couple of weeks go by. Thank you in advance. Cheers!
