Food prep this week

Even though I'm simplifying our meals I still had a bunch of prep work to do.  I had a ton of produce that needed to be processed this week from the 2 produce baskets we had.  

I pulled out the laptop, popped on Netflix and away we went!  I pulled out the last of the jumbo carrots from a month ago (thank you biofresh bag!) and peeled and chopped them into match sticks for snacks.

Then I shucked the corn on the cob and roasted it.  I have left it on the cob for now, but if it isn't eaten in a few days I will cut it off the cob and freeze it.

Then I started working on the green beans.  I snapped washed and steamed a full gallon bucket of them!

Lastly, I pulled together the last bits of "extra veggies" like the stray green pepper, 1/2 of a tomato and some lettuce and created a salad to eat off for Sunday dinner and possibly Monday lunch.

I pulled out some meat to thaw and will grill up turkey burgers, chicken breasts and chicken sausages.  Additionally, I have one more meal of chicken tacos in the freezer I will pull out near the end of the week.

Super excited for summer!
