The Saturday market at my favorite discount gourmet grocery was a good one - I've loaded up on several types of vegetables and picked up some items to take over for a donation to the community fridge. Lately I've just taken garden produce but now there are a few canned goods as well.
They also had huge chicken leg quarters three to a pack in the freezer section and I sealed each individually in Foodsaver bags. Most often now I cook just a breast or leg quarter, I rarely cook an entire bird. If I bring home rotisserie chicken from Costco it's knowing that I'm going to have to make it into a number of meals and then soup stock.
This evening I have a chicken breast baking and a large acorn squash halved on a baking sheet. I love to scoop the squash out of the skin with a spoon and eat it plain, nothing added. Cook it until it's caramelized and it's pretty sweet. I'll probably shred the chicken and mix it with sliced fried onions and poblano peppers and make fajitas. There are tortillas in the freezer. It's finally feeling like cooking weather, and I was really drawn to the veggies today. There are beets simmering on the stove and cauliflower and yellow squash in the fridge.
Tomorrow is a major laundry day, since I'm going to change the bedding and put a blanket on the bed and wash the light cover I've used during the summer. We've reached that time of year when the ceiling fan doesn't need to run at night and the window can be open so cool air comes in (summer hot air isn't welcome).
