The Burden of free food
Last night's chicken dinner was delicious however I don't think I will marinate the chicken in yogurt again - it was messy. It did seem as if the chicken was moist and tender. Marinating in good old-fashioned buttermilk is not as messy.
Here is the recipe for the Yogurt coffee cake. It was good but needs some tweaking. I plan to try some other "yogurt cake" recipes.
I now have 3 tubs of yogurt left. I've tried to give a tub away - no one likes plain yogurt. They are good till June 6.
I hate to waste food. I don't have a basement or a root cellar and our 100+ degree summers are just around the corner. I've already made scalloped potatoes with our salmon the other night - Potato soup and last night we had mashed potatoes. I like potatoes but not this much.
I found where you can cook the potatoes and then freeze them. I do like potato salad and since it is salad time of year, I'm going to make a huge bunch of it. My sons love their Mom's potato salad.
People nowadays don't use potatoes like my mom did. They tend to buy packaged potatoes. I've always made my mashed potatoes from scratch.
Next time I won't be so quick to accept the burden of the free food.
