Are you looking for ways to use all the food that you received in your early December 2020 Ruby’s Pantry share? I have developed a Ruby’s Pantry menu plan to help you! It is an entire week’s menu including breakfast, lunch, supper, snack, and dessert for 7 days!
RUBY’S PANTRY Menu Plan for December SHARE
This menu is based on the food received in the December share in Platteville, Wisconsin. However, there are also meals based on items received in the recent past at Mineral Point, WI. Many of these recipes have been posted in the local Ruby’s Facebook Group. I have made links on the pdf menu to see the recipes.
BE SURE TO PIN FOR LATER
This is the second Ruby’s Pantry menu plan I have developed. Many people have downloaded it. The menu plans are gaining popularity. If you like this Ruby’s Pantry menu plan, let me know! I am working to organize the recipes to make them more user friendly for you!
I am also working on expanding the Ruby’s Pantry Menu Plan each month to link recipes to this website for easier viewing. However, that takes some time and work, so please be patient. Since this menu plan is for you to help you utilize EVERYTHING in your share, please give me your suggestions to make it better! You can contact me via email or by Facebook Messenger.
You may download your menu with links to our Facebook group by SIGNING UP HERE. I will never share your email address with anyone. I simply want to see how much interest there is in this menu plan. You will also receive occasional emails from me. You can unsubscribe at any time.
What about the Cottage Cheese?
One item that I did not include in the menu was the cottage cheese. I love cottage cheese! We eat so much cottage cheese at our house that our cottage cheese from the share is already gone! We eat so much, that I learned how to make cottage cheese in my Instant Pot.
Anyway, here are a few ways we use Cottage Cheese at our house. These ideas may seem foreign or weird, but don’t knock it until you try it!
- Topping for a lettuce salad
- Topping for baked potatoes
- Cottage Berry Whip
- Add it to smoothies for extra protein and creaminess
Here is the recipe for Cottage Berry Whip. I first learned about these options when I followed the Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle.
Cottage Berry Whip
- food processor
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese low-fat or regular
- 1/2 cup frozen berries strawberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- sweetener, to taste Stevia, sugar, honey
- 2 tbsp heavy cream (optional)
- Place cottage cheese and frozen berries in blender or food processor
- blend for 30 seconds
- add vanilla and sweetner and heavy cream (optional)
- blend until well combined and creamy
- Serve and enjoy!
