We had a busy week this week with meetings and I was a crazy canner working on putting away the 50lbs of potatoes and the 40lbs of oranges I bought. Plus I've been canning up beans and chicken broth. (Recipes are all coming!) I have over 100lbs of produce headed my way this week so I had to get everything else done.

What are you planning for meals this week?

Cottage cheese is such a staple for me. For lunch/dinner, Lord wiling I’m planning meatballs with salsa (and a side of cottage cheese), side salads, going to try pureed cauliflower; finish off/make more roasted eggplant, finish off the fajita chicken skillet (boneless, skinless thighs seasoned and sauteed in olive oil, then remove to plate and sautee onions and peppers, then re-add chicken and add a large can of tomatoes, and simmer an hour). Breakfast for me is either oatmeal (way too hot now) or wheat pita with peanut butter and blueberries, and pb for a snack.

Have you ever ground your own peanut butter? I tried it once, but using my food processor, it just wasn’t quite as smooth as I’d hoped for. Kroger natural is currently my favorite brand, but I’d love to get it right and do it at home. And of course, stock it away or give it away for Christmas! Oh the possibilities. I really wanna learn to can….You are an inspiration!

I love cottage cheese too:) I’ve never ground my own peanut butter, both me and hubby have to stay away from nuts:( That sounds like a really nice Christmas gift though!

I sometimes make my own peanut butter. I add a little bit of light olive oil to the peanuts. I’ve even make it using a blender but I’m guessing a food processor would be even better. It is so yummy fresh. I make it in tiny batches that we will use in a day or two and store in the fridge. I hope you try it again with a little bit of oil.
