I was really hoping to get more stuff out of the old house today, but it's raining again. The only day all week I have time to go and I can't. Hopefully, the coming week will be better and I'm not stuck late at work multiple nights. Ah, well, at least tomorrow is garbage day and I can drag more of the stuff from the garage out to the curb,
I boiled up the last of the red potatoes the other day and I think I will make mashed out of what I haven't already eaten. Going to try using coconut milk - that should make them nice and creamy. I need to start doing more batch cooking now that the big freezer is here at the new house, Good thing it's one of the old ones and can be used in a garage since there's no way it would fit down the basement stairs and make the turn into the door. That freezer was my first Christmas present from my husband the year we got married and it still runs great.
What I really want to do is make a Meijer's run and load up on frozen veggies - my son thinks a pound bag of veggies is a single serving. I think that's wonderful, but it means I go through frozen veggies pretty fast since we both eat them in large quantities. Unfortunately, Meijer senior hours is 7-8 on Tuesdays when I have to be at work and I have no idea when else might be a safe time to go. I try to never go grocery shopping on the weekends even before the virus changed our lives.
