What We Ate November 5 -18

Monday of last week was a holiday and I took the day off from blogging, so this week’s “What We Ate” will cover two weeks instead of one. 

We've done well at eating from the pantry and freezer but I must admit that I'm pretty bored with the vegetables I've been cooking.  I'm going to have to work at stirring things up a bit in the side dish department next week.

I’m finding myself grateful for our “windowsill garden” and our sprout growing arrangement in the kitchen.  Between them they’ve provided some nice fresh flavours to liven up our meals. 

Here’s what we ate:
