A few months ago I purchased a 5 gallon bucket of frozen raspberries. Luckily I had room top just put it in the freezer. Last week I pulled it out because I volunteered to make some raspberry cheesecake topping for a leadership meeting.....WHAT WAS I THINKING????
Once they unthawed, this bucket was not going to fit in my fridge. (Panic moment) I had to take care of these raspberries and fast. In one day I made jam and lots of it.
I also made a gallon of plain raspberry sauce and a gallon of chocolate raspberry sauce.
There is still a 1/2 gallon of strained raspberries in my fridge I need to take care of.
Let's say I am a little raspberried out.....
This week's menu is pretty basic. I am trying to do low calorie for me and high carbs for my runner!!
Let's see if I can pull it off.

Look at all that jam and sauce! WOW!ReplyDelete
Yummy looking menu! We love goulasch, but I haven't made it in quite a while.
Another genius menu! I especially want to try the crock pot BBQ chicken recipe (and of course, I just happen to have a can of Cherry Coke Zero in the fridge).ReplyDelete
First off I am impressed that you had room for a 5 gallon bucket in your freezer! After making all of the jam and sauces, I would not even want to smell raspberries for a while.ReplyDelete
I am going to have to try the spaghetti casserole. Sounds good!
Whoa, that's a lot of raspberries. How nice that you now have all that jam and sauce ready to use!ReplyDelete
I was visiting Jo at Blog-Diggidy and found you. I am quite impressed with all that raspberry jam and sauce! It looks wonderful! The only thing better would be if I had some of that jam on a buttered biscuit to go with my coffee this morning!! :)ReplyDelete
Yum yum - your raspberry photos are bringing a big smile to my face :) You are so inventive!ReplyDelete
