just a couple of thoughts to share about food......
most here know that i am a widower living alone and making do ok with the "domestic" side of things.. you know, the chores and cooking n such.. i mean golly gee, i certainly can't afford to go out to eat all the time, nor would i want to..
soooo, here's the point.. i like cooking and i don't mean just lighting up the grill and burning stuff.
sometimes in order to use all of the stuff in the frig up before it goes into the trash, i somewhat alter what may be a traditional dish..
here's an example: i had bell pepper, fresh jalapenos, and onion that needed to be used. i also had a pound of pink slime... so i threw it all in a skillet and fixed it up like i would a burritio or fajita.. then i added a can of "ranchstyle" beans..
to serve this stuff, i took a basic cereal bowl and lined the bottom with tortilla chips, (i was out of flour tortillas to make a burrito/taco) cover those with some thin sliced sharp cheddar, a few spoons full of the mix, more cheese, another layer of chips, some sliced nacho jalapenos, then covered it all with shredded cheese.. tossed it into the nuke for 40 seconds to melt the cheese.. topped it with diced tomatoes, some chopped onion, sour cream, and salsa..
over the next few days, i also made variations of the "bowl".. sometimes using nacho flavored chips, or topping with avocado slices or guacamole..
what types of unusual hybrid "meals" do some of y'all come up with?
you have to clean the frig out somehow eh?
