"Left Over Stew"
Basically, we keep any leftovers from meals that we won't be using for the next day in a quality freezer bag.
*Any vegetables: corn, peas, broccoli, green beans, onions, zucchini, tomatoes going ripe, etc.
*Any meat: hamburger, taco meat, bacon, sausage, chicken, etc.
*Any 1/2 used cans of food: stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, cream of corn, green chilis, olives, beans, whatever!
*You can also keep chicken & ingredients that would go well with each other, in a different bag, and have another one for more of the red meat.
*Just keep adding ingredients and when there is enough to fill two - quart size freezer bags, then place it all in the crock pot.
*Depending on what has been collected, add more veggies or meat. But typically there is plenty of each.
*Then add any type of canned or cooked bean. Last time we added 1 can of Northern Beans.
*Lastly, add a can of stewed tomatoes and some Italian seasoning.
*Cook in the crock pot and serve with WARM CORNBREAD and HONEY.
Turns out great every time!
This meal cost less than $1.00 to make for a family of 4.
