but when I saw them half price I figured I would try them out. They are Presidents Choice fully washed and trimmed veggies. They are normally $4.99 for a 907 gram (just under 2 lbs) bag. I picked up a bag of mixed veggies.
And one of the broccoli.
So I took the carrots and as there were only 12 oz added a couple more carrots I had in the fridge to make a batch of carrot soup for my lunch for at least three or four days.
The broccoli from the mixed veggie bag, I steamed and made a broccoli and cheese quiche, so that will last us two meals.
With the cauliflower and some of the broccoli from the broccoli bag I steamed it and will make some cheese sauce for a cauliflower and broccoli cheese sauce casserole. With take the two crusts from the loaf of bread and make bread crumbs for a topping on the casserole with garlic bread.
The rest of the broccoli I blanched and I put into two freezer bags to use at a later date. I wish I had picked up some more bags as I think at half price they were good value.
What's funny is that I was talking to our son and mentioned to him that we were having broccoli and cheese quiche and Greek salad for supper and would he like to stop by for his supper. He declined as he couldn't imagine not eating meat as part of his supper. He's a meat eater through and through. I think its from all the years he spent working part time in the meat department of a grocery store. He started when he was 14 and only left when he left university and started work full time. He knows more about meat than I do, he knows how to prepare it and what are the best cuts. Me I don't mind meat, but it doesn't bother me if I don't eat it every day.
Are you a meat eater or do you prefer your veggies?
