Home Again

We've only been home a few days and I have been cooking up my own storm.  I am so glad to be home in my kitchen.  We needed a simple, quick meal when we first came in Sunday night.  We went with Gardein "beef" tips served over mashed potatoes with gravy and green peas.  A high starch meal, but I was kind of hungry for some substance.  Monday we got up to everything cancelled around us due to flooding and I decided to make some whole wheat and oat pancakes.  Midday I baked oatmeal raisin cookies for my husband to take with him.  For lunch I made bean burritos (not shown) and we went with "chicken" and veggie fried rice for supper.  (I love using the food storage items to make this and most of the ingredients (except for the chicken and my sauce) come from my dried goods.). This morning we got up to most things being cancelled still.  We decided to start the day with an autumn favorite -- fried apples on whole wheat biscuits.
