Quick, easy way to get rid of turkey leftovers!

My mother-in-law, the cooking genius, showed me this. It was so tasty, I had to freeze the rest of the turkey after Thanksgiving to try it myself! But if your Thanksgiving turkey is long gone, you can use the holiday turkey leftovers as well.

Eat-in-tonight Bison meatloaf

Tuna casserole, black bean soup with feta, steel cut oats in the crock pot, mini meatloaves, baked kale with nutritional yeast and two sets of muffins later…I don’t have to cook for a week!

Wheat and oat blueberry coffee cake

I find myself standing in the bakery department every single time I go to the grocery store, admiring the muffins and the cakes and the doughnuts and the scones. And I tell myself, “NO, NO, NO! WALK AWAY!” Sometimes I pick something up and read the ingredients list of how much fat one muffin contains and I remind myself of all the excess packaging. Besides, seeing the 14 grams of fat for one muffin makes it easier to walk away. I’ll make it myself at home. And I’ll make it better.

Quick, homecooked Eggy Bread

I think home cooking is green. In the spirit of  cooking at home, I’m adding random recipes of food I make, other than my crock pot meals I document on my G.I. Crockpot blog, (which I mainly use as a recipe box for myself). I try to add simple, easy and quick meals. If they don’t have those three adjectives, I probably won’t make it.

When relatives give you moose meat….

Before the move, thoughtful relatives bestowed upon us a pound of moose meat. “Put it in a stew,” they said. But once I thawed it, it resembled ground hamburger so I scanned on-line to see how to cook it. Everyone had a different recipe for moose burgers….so this is what I came up with: mooseloaf.
Since the ingredients were similar to the ones for meatloaf, I decided to try to make it in a similar manner. After all, who am I to waste moose?

We’ve started buying 100% grass-fed beef.

No to plastic bread bags

These drive me crazy. These bread bags are usually NOT recyclable. Which means, if I’m trying to follow a zero waste lifestyle, I had to give them up.

The dreaded plastic. It’s everywhere! I never even thought about it, until I started zero waste!

Granted, we aren’t big bread eaters, but when you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it just doesn’t cut it on homemade tortillas. We decided to simply make our own bread.

One step closer to zero waste!

A tasty concoction.
