How well can two empty-nesters eat on Costco, 2/3 of a carton of ricotta cheese, and random leftovers from a community picnic?
Pretty well, it turns out. Here’s what’s cooking this week.
Sunday Dinner at the "Bar"
Small kine plates of poke, leftover King Egg rolls, salad, rice, kim chee, and roasted shishito peppers, accompanied by Pineapple Cider. All we were missing was cigarette smoke and karaoke.
Monday aka #TeenyTinyFriday
COOKED Chicken Tortilla Soup with Costco chicken, some leftover tortilla chips, and tossing in the rest of the shishito peppers. This one freezes well, so we will stock up. However, ATE poke nachos, and the last of the Pillsbury manapua and homemade pizza from last week.16 manapua and 2 pizzas is overkill for two people.
Weekday Lasagne. Using leftover ricotta from last week's edamame hummus, a ‘baby’ box of no-cook lasagne noodles, the remaining Italian sausage, and mushrooms from last week’s pizza added to a good tomato sauce. Even with an 9 x 9, still plenty for two plus freezer.
For the first time in forever, the Sharks will open without Patrick Marleau. The household has very mixed feelings, but we are still fans. (Though some of us are also watching Toronto A LOT more closely.) Chicken quesadilla from Costco Chicken Part II, plus fresh guacamole. Best eaten in front of the TV, wearing a Sharks jersey.
Chicken Salad Sandwiches or Mauna Lani Leftover Chicken Pasta Salad. Any remaining chicken will get frozen for some other use.
#AlohaFriday End of the Week Buffet
Goal is to clear out Tupperware from the fridge.
Happy October to all!
