So, after about two hours of cooking, this is what I've made
Blueberry galette, stuffed shells, applesauce, corn, and beef vegetable soup. It's hard to believe that I started with 10 cooking apples, beef tenderloin ends, a half can of tomato paste, a partial container of cottage cheese, five ears of corn, a sad looking red pepper, four mushrooms, and about three cups of blueberries that were creeping towards the other side. Now, obviously I had to add a few other staples to create these dishes, but I'm a little bit proud of myself! :)
This is what I'm most excited about! I tried a new recipe, basically scouring the internet for a recipe using 3 cups of blueberries. Here is the recipe I used.(except I made my own crust)
We're having leftovers for dinner tonight, but these stuffed shells will taste great tomorrow night! I sauteed my one red pepper and four mushrooms with diced onion and some bacon. I stuffed the shells with the cottage cheese, an egg and some parmesan and mozzarella.
I'll probably use the corn to make corn and black bean relish and we'll eat that with the soup and tuna melts for a quick and easy dinner. The applesauce is something the kids look forward to every summer.
And the galette? I'd expect that to be history by this evening!
