What's been cooking?
Terribly hot here in CT, with one more day to go until it breaks. House is closed up, curtains drawn all upstairs A/C's running, as welll as the Den ceiling fan, 2 oscillating fans (LR & kitchen) as well as a box fan in my room. 77 degrees upstairs, 79 down but it's DRY! Sunday supper stuck with the menu pan: corned beef and caggage, I just turned to a crock pot to avoid heating up the house a great deal. Planned overs for Tues,
Lots of sandwiches, and I am not usually a fan:
A treat: seafood salad
Turkey and Swiss
Tonight was supposed to be tuna cakes, fzn tater tots, a veg. A remaining rotisserie chicken beckoned me, however and became tonight's dinner inspiration.
2 ramen packs, assorted fast food sauces, soy sauce, sesame oil (and veg oil not pictured)
I used 1/2 of wat remained in the bag of fzn peppers n onions, 1/2 of a cut zuke, scallion tops, about 8 good sized Savoy cabbage leaves
plenty of chicken on the carcass
I cooked the ramen w/ the bouillon pkts, but served the noodles "dry" and using the bouillion along w/ the carcass and pan drippings o make cheicken broth for the freezer
last minute decision: add some chopped garlic and 1/2 can, drained pineapple.
I called this sweet n sour chicken over ramen. Came out pretty good, enough for lunch for two tomorrow
