Yes, Let's Eat! Part 1

It's been quite a while since my last post about every day menu items. I posted a bunch of recipes in the 100 Ways to Celebrate Easter, I talked about freezing avocados, and on Valentine's I posted pics of our favorite pancakes (heart shaped, of course!) but it's been since January and growing lettuce and making soup that I've actually posted what we're sustaining ourselves with around here.
To be honest, I haven't posted much about our food because it's been mostly the same things. We eat a lot of meals that fit with the old remixing chart I made up a couple of years ago
Pick a meat, pick a starch, pick a veggie and mix and remix...
When remixing, I often use my own sauce starting with a roux (butter and flour) and adding milk and cheese and chicken stock, etc. Our favorite it pasta and creamy cheese sauce. My secret ingredient is Greek Yogurt--added at the very end like you would add in sour cream. Greek Yogurt pretty much makes everything better.
We eat stir fried veggies and/or rice and lots of Mexican, mostly from this list of 10 Easy Family Friendly Mexican foods.
And then of course there are the picnics and lazy nights where I use the magic bread to make some easy sandwiches...
Lately I've made lots of egg salads and chicken salads for those sandwich kind of nights (just another form of remixing, really--add eggs and mayo to anything and it becomes a salad!)
And then we eat a lot of yummy but mostly boring grilled meats or baked chicken, etc. 
We almost always add a couple of yummy veggies or a salad to our meal, frozen green beans or broccoli or peas. Or I saute zucchini or bake some brussel sprouts.
I know it's nothing exciting, but just looking back at what we've eaten these last few months, I am so grateful! We eat well and never have any need and don't have the least bit of a clue what hunger is like.
So, happy cooking and happy eating!
(Stay tuned for Part 2 and 3 of this post containing or favorite breakfasts and our go-tos for lunches and snacks.)
