    For those of you using, One Harvest, it's time to look at the menu and prepare your orders.

    I like the looks of the More Than Enough box. It has a nice variety of foods and frozen veggies.

    How are you all liking this program?

    I always like looking at this Brandy and know you do too! How would you use the new stuff? I liked seeing strawberries added to the frozen veggie box, what a nice surprise for them! Looks like January is the kick start to some homestyle meals from the box contents... I think folks enjoy these comfort foods even more so in the winter too so will be greatly appreciative for the home front boost!

    I like that line up of frozen produce. It's not bad for the price.

    Where I am, I can find peas, green beans and corn for $1 but everything else is more. We don't have the Dollar Tree here with the fridge section so the berries I used to get for $1 to bake with are not really accessible anymore.

    My family loves homestyle cooking. I do as well but like to throw in some different cuisines and spice up the sides with veggies and fruits.

    I'd use the thighs to make chicken stock and strip the meat to use for dishes like soups and stews.

    Roast chicken breasts, field peas, roast okra and rolls sounds good.

    Skilled fried ham slices, mashed potatoes and steamed squash.

    Pan lasagna, lemon crusted green beans and garlic bread

    Chicken breast filets, macaroni n cheese and corn

     Nearest site to me is 30 miles away -- which isn't really a big deal, but I can't seem to see the distribution time without placing an order.  Since I also pick up my Bountiful Baskets produce co-op on Saturday mornings, it would be nice to know if it's possible to get from one location to the other in the time allowed.

    Brandy, sounds great! You may have just helped menu plan someone's meal line up based on some of those ingredients you listed in your sample plan!

    I'll have a look again and see what I can come up with...

    Re: January 2013 One Harvest

    Here are some ideas too:

    Lasagna skillet with ground beef meat sauce; steamed green beans

    Okra, corn and squash over rice mix

    Mac and cheese healthed up with corn or if one did not want to use the cheese sauce packet they could use the pasta noodles in a chicken noodle soup with frozen veggies of choice from their box

    Breakfast sausages and blueberry muffins

    Frugal cheaters pea soup: defrost and puree frozen peas, add water, seasonings of choice, any produce on hand they might have at home like onions, celery, carrots, garlic, etc. and some of the ham in the box, heat on stove top. Quick and easy soup.

    Cheater Potato-Sausage soup with mashed potatoes and sausage. They can use milk, water or homemade chicken broth from their reserved chicken bones from the box if they'd like...

    Italian rice stuffed chicken breasts, steamed zucchini

    Ideas above based on box ingredients only - the Italian rice stuffed chicken breasts would call for tomato/red sauce and dry Italian herbs/spices...most have the sauce on hand or at least access to a cheap can of it...

     

    Wait Brandy, is it just me or does this $46 box seem really meat HEAVY??? I mean the meat alone would cost the amount of the box... in that case it's a really good deal. Did the box get meat-heavier or am I just out of the loop? I'm actually sitting here wondering how to even use all that meat in that 1 box! Seems like a really good deal this month ahead for those eating/feeding meat.
