I'd been looking at a leftover spiral-cut ham in the fridge for almost a week, and it wasn't being eaten. So this afternoon I made two pots of goodness - a ham and bean soup and a jambalaya. Don't ask for recipes...these were both freeform creations. But both are good suppers for a very miserable and cold night - which is what we have in north Alabama this evening.
Pork chops and mashed potatoes are a personal favorite of mine. I like green beans or corn with it, but broccoli works too. Add some crusty rolls and butter, and a slice of apple pie and coffee, and you have a nice homey meal.
I was shopping all day. So, I decided to make a quick, fixer meal that my mom passed down to me. Its one pd. of hamburger, made into 2-3 patties, seasoned however, with a can of mushroom soup divided up over the patties. I usually make it with baked potatoes, the soup is sorta like a gravy you can mix with the spuds. This is my "what in the world can I make, that will be ready under an hour meal." It sure is yummy to my tummy. Lil' Lori
Hey Sparks... try using Broccaflower if you can find it. It's an awesome hybrid vegetable that looks like a head of cauliflower but is the color of broccoli and embodies the flavors of both. As for me, I do 98% of the cooking in the house (she makes 98% of the income so I have to step up when I can). She has been on this weight watchers kick so I have had to compile all of these low fat, low sodium, and low flavor meals to prepare. I absolutely hate boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They take away everything that provides flavor and have the audacity to charge you more for them!! I LOVE food and making me cook a weight watchers meal is tantamount to making Michael Phelps swim the 100m freestyle with his arms tied behind his back. It just isn't fair. If she would just let me make one single non-weight watchers recipe, I would be happier than someone who can quit their job and still get a $5 million check for their troubles (sorry Alabama people for the Tuberville jab).
Lucky Me - - I get home from work to see what the DH has made. It's always a surprise and usually something good. No T-Day leftovers for us - we went out for dinner. Sure do miss the turkey carcass - no soup this year.
