Today is the last day of February for 2024.Hopefully it's the last day of our winter as well. Although, every day has been up and down weather, and yes, more snow yesterday.
I've been focusing meals on what we froze from the garden, what was stocked up in the freezer, and what's in the pantry as well. It's getting close to spring, and we still have a lot of green beans and green peppers in our freezer.
I didn't get a lot of photos, as we were enjoying our dinner, but here was what I came up with recently.
Dinner - meatball casserole with dollops of ricotta. I used homemade frozen (then cooked) meatballs, and home canned tomato sauce for this. I also thawed some diced yellow squash and added that to the sauce (I wanted asparagus, but we were out). The squash was also from the garden.
The meatballs are made with organic oats vs. bread crumbs. We topped the meatball "casserole" over frozen and thawed garden spaghetti squash. In the future, I will layer the spaghetti squash in the baking dish first, and bake it all together. Either way, it was delicious.
I roasted green beans using frozen garden green beans. I used homemade garlic powder, then when it came out of the oven, added some parmesan cheese.
I baked a dozen sausage egg cups, with our farm fresh eggs, and one cup of already cooked sage sausage from the freezer.
I'm already making breakfast plans, to use some delicious garden bell peppers we froze last year. There will be some scrambles, hash/egg dishes, more egg cups, and crust-less quiches or breakfast bakes. I will be adding them to lunch and dinner as well. They are delicious in omelets.
What's your favorite way to use frozen (diced) bell peppers from your garden?
