I bought some yellow peppers to make stuffed peppers, and a nice flat cabbage to make cabbage rolls. I also got the ground pork and beef for both of those items, but I don't think I will be doing any rolling or stuffing today. I plan on freezing servings of the soup and everything else to bring for lunch or for easy dinners later on. When I get the chance I am going to make a batch of chili as well (white bean, turkey).
Something about this time of year makes me want to cook and nest and preserve. Maybe I am part bear, and some genetic trait makes me want to get ready for hibernation?
