Subject: [food] What was for dinner
Security: Public
The groceries were a little low, and I was too lazy to go shopping or hit a restaurant, so here's what I had for dinner last night.
  • One can great northern beans, heated

  • Four slices of salami, diced small and fried in a large pan

  • Added a tablespoon of chopped, pickled garlic, fried a bit longer

  • Added a small amount of olive oil to the pan with salami and garlic still in it

  • Dropped in my sad, end-of-life half bag of baby spinach

  • Sauteed until spinach wilted

  • Turned spinach, salami and garlic into a bowl, including the pan oil

  • Added about two teaspoons of Thai pepper lime vinegar

  • Drained half the beans, added to spinach, etc.

  • Mixed and ate. Had some of Jersey Girl In Portland's pickles as a side dish.

Wow, was this good. Hooray for cooking with odd bits!

Those are some of the best meals I have ever made.

In a heavey pan (cast iron) heat left-over steak with some fresh tomatoes and left-over roasted squash. When warm through add wine, butter, and blue cheese crumbles to create the sauce. Brandy and/or Sherry work to for the sauce making.

I hate doing dishes, so I am a big fan of one pan meals.

Cooking with odd bits is fun! Breakfast the other day was jarred artichoke hearts with smoked Gruyere cheese melted on top. Yum!
