September Exchange

It has been a month of changes and transitions for our group. We are saying farewell to two members as their schedules change.

With wonky schedules I find that the meals made up into essentially "single serving" pouches are convenient. Anything stuffed in flat-bread, a tortilla, or dumplings where you can easily heat a small portion and leave the rest is wonderful. "Meatballs" and cookies are good for this as well. I especially like to keep on hand flexible portion freezer items that do not require thawing. If I have surprise visitors for lunch then I can quickly turn out however much we need. (Veggie burgers and vegan ravioli are great examples of item that don't need to thaw before cooking.)

This month we exchanged:
Masaman Thai Curry Stew
Meltaway Cabbage
Roasted Fresh Tomato Soup
From Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker Bourbon Baked Beans and a Carrot and Parsnip Bisque
