|Our cars after last night's storm|
Kate: Tonight I made spinach souffle and angel biscuits.
Cajun-style dirty rice with cooked Italian sausage I found in the fridge, Uncle Ben's rice, a green bell pepper, and leftover caramelized onions. A wonderfully, flavorful dish made even better with lots of hot sauce! This type of dish was a favorite of mine and my husband before we had children and he went carb-free. Here's a recipe of this type of dish that I posted before.
Roasted cauliflower, hands down our most favorite way of preparing this vegetable. Regina, a friend of my daughter and a notoriously picky eater, actually ate these last night and liked them.
White mac-n-cheese made with gruyere, manchego, and American cheeses with thyme-infused bechamel and a sprinkling of cayenne.
Tomato bisque made out of canned fire roasted tomatoes, broth, canned evaporated milk, and fresh basil.
Chili with ground beef, canned fire roasted and Rotel tomatoes, 7 tbs. of spices, beef broth, leftover coffee, beer, and unsweetened chocolate.
Ramen with quick Asian broth (chicken broth, soy sauce, grated ginger, white pepper, sesame oil) with leftover chicken.
Whether snow is your muse or not, how would you respond to the challenge of cooking from what you have?
