You Put What in the What?

I have been intrigued with the different posts about the complexity of menu planning. I can’t say that I have ever planned menus more than one day ahead. Basically, what we eat is what’s on sale.

I have been intrigued with the different posts about the complexity of menu planning. I can’t say that I have ever planned menus more than one day ahead. Basically, what we eat is what’s on sale.


I have graduated from making all of my bread to making everything from scratch. It began as a challenge two years ago to eliminate corn syrup from our diet. This project expanded into recording all of the food products I buy for analysis. But this is another story.

Basically, I pick up the bargains on the “use it now” produce stand at very nice prices (tomatoes for 50 cents per pound, etc). and I take it home and find something to add it to. It extends the meat and makes fantastically juicy and flavorful burgers.

A few weeks ago, I was preparing to make hamburgers for the grill. I added a lot of chopped onions. I had a carton of mushrooms left over that I needed to find a use for, so I chopped them up too. There was almost an equal amount of onions/mushrooms to meat. The result was fantastic!

The next time I made hamburgers, I had recently found some chayotte squash on the “rewrap” stand at the grocery store (I thought they were pears), so I chopped them up and added them to the now vegetarian burgers with some meat.

I had too much for the hamburgers so I added some of the chayotte squash to the potato salad, too.

I have also added other squashes and green pepper. They make great fillers, too.

And yes, that is a homemade hamburger bun, and homemade mayo in the potato salad, and homemade ketchup on the hamburger (you can’t see it but I wanted to get that in).

    Your bun was the first thing that caught my eye too…very nice!
    I too have been dodging the high fructose corn syrup for years & also make my own ketchup. Everyone who encounters it is always just a little in awe of it…kinda like no one should be making their own & WHY would you do such a thing? It always gets ate up though, so I don’t think it’s too bad.
