Chicken and Rice

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

This is a great way to use up leftovers and bits and pieces of veggies. I used leftover steamed rice, leftover chicken from one of our cider roasted chickens, some carrots, and some peas. Mushrooms would also go very well in this. I didn't end up seasoning ...

Apple Cranberry Turkey Pasta

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

This very odd sounding pasta was surprisingly good. My husband thought it was outstanding. :-D I'm not sure where the inspiration for this came from; it was just Shaun and me punting in the kitchen and ending up with something interesting and good. The sweet and ...

Baked Chicken Noodles

Friday, July 8th, 2011

I took some leftover chicken noodle soup from lunch today, which I made with twice as many noodles so it was not very brothy, sprinkled the top with some breadcrumbs, and baked at 375 degrees F in an ovensafe bowl for about 30 minutes. It turned out quite good, ...

Biscuits and Hamburger Gravy

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

This was a quick hearty breakfast constructed from yesterdays leftovers - a leftover hamburger patty and a couple biscuits. It can easily be scaled up to serve more, browning meat from scratch and adding seasoning as you like. If you prefer a country gravy, just replace the beef ...

Black Bean and Ham Soup

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Tonight I made my black bean and ham soup, using up most of the leftover ham from a couple nights ago. This time, instead of onion powder, I grated a small onion and sautéed it in a little canola oil. The fresh addition was nice, so I've rewritten ...

Barbecue Beef Brisket Sandwiches

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

I needed a quick dinner tonight that I could hold indefinitely on the stove since I had no idea how long it would take Shaun to get home tonight. Seattle does not deal well, or really at all with snow. It's been dusting all day, with accumulations of ...
