Thankfully, the family has proven to be resilient and supportive of this opportunity, even though we are eating much later, and sometimes planning retroactively.
Stuffed tomatoes, playing leftovers roulette. We had a bunch of tomatoes and a few basil leaves. We always have rice, so we cored out the tomatoes, cooked the rice with the tomato guts and basil, then mixed it with Parmesan cheese. Stuffed it back into the tomatoes and baked it til the rice got browned and a little crunchy.
This needs a little work, but it is definitely on the right track.
Crispy roast pork from the Marina Market, rice and green beans. Easy and not quite takeout.
Japanese Chicken Curry. Won't taste like Japan, but won't be an 8 hour plane ride that requires ordering in a foreign language either.
My Daddy's Killer Fried Rice using the leftover roast pork, leftover green beans from Tuesday and any leftover onions or carrots from Wednesday. Everything about fried rice makes me happy.
I fully appreciate this phrase again. Panini with apricot jam, brie, turkey, strawberries and arugula. It sounds weird and almost hideous. It's going to be good.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
