Defrosted Seven Bean Soup with sour cream – 7 April 2019

Not sure why D didn’t want to cook either his tapenade and filet bean pasta, or his herb omelette with raclette tonight (both of which we have planned on having at an unspecified date), but he suggested instead we just … Continue reading

Leftover Common Grill Black Bean Soup – 25 March 2019

Last of the leftover lasagna; Romano beans – 12 March 2019

A most excellent random soup; leftover Pintxos salad – 3 December 2018

Another freezer mystery turns out to be really great! I found one of the small square glass snap-seals in the freezer with something that looked a bit like tomato sauce in it, a cup or less, most likely, and moved … Continue reading

Mystery Freezer Stuff with added sausage – 13 November 2018

Leftover Baked Garden Vegetables – 20 March 2018

This is spring? {sigh} Well, at least it’s rain we need. It’s been cold and gray and this will continue for several more days, apparently. We planned to do more on our taxes, heading into preparing for Section C – … Continue reading

Sandwiches with leftover grilled pork tenderloin; Brussels sprouts – 5 February 2018

My old notes on the grilled pork tenderloin recipe that we made the 3rd say that it’s worth making just for the leftovers, to use in sandwiches. These were really fine sandwiches, but not as obviously fabulous as the notes … Continue reading

Reheated Common Grill black bean soup with salsa, avocados, and sour cream; Brussels sprouts – 2 February 2018

Well, if the groundhog had been out here, he sure would have seen his shadow. Taken off his fur coat to boot. A lovely spring day, sunny and warm. Probably in the low 70s (though the interior of the house … Continue reading

Leftover taleggio/kale risotto with freshly cooked parsnips on top – 28 December 2017

My notes said that the amount of parsnips called for in the La Cucina Italiana recipe for this was too small – we used it all up on our first two servings. So this time, I bought two instead of … Continue reading

Copy/paste from last night, with bread and cheese substitutions and colder wine. And daylight – 27 September 2017

  Title says it – we had more of the gazpacho, on the deck again, with the same wine (Beaujolais), but chilled to white wine temperature. It was fine without airing at this temp. Good idea of D’s to chill … Continue reading

Cold “poblano quiche”; marinated red peppers – 2 Sept 2017

Well, this experiment didn’t work, but it was worth a try I guess. Not awful, just not inviting. Last night I cooked an extra poblano quiche for tonight, wanting to see how it would be when cold. Answer: dense, not … Continue reading

Sandwich with leftover chicken; boiled potatoes; baby bok choi – 26 June 2017

Leftover chicken with leftover leftover rice; zucchini – 25 June 2017

Using up leftovers – D took the second (of three) leftover pieces of grilled chicken thigh and cut it up, and added to the already-leftover-once rice with onions and herbs (parsley I think). He started by cooking some chopped red … Continue reading

Scotch Broth; semonlina-with-bay patties; chard stems – 16 May 2017

I used my lamb broth from last week’s leftover bits to make Scotch Broth. I defrosted some bits of lamb from 2012(!!) that were marked as being small chunks – they were too small for a good kebab, indeed, but … Continue reading

Pizza with chard and goat cheese – 7 May 2017

Using up that 21 oz Costco vat of Laura Chenel chevre. Still. Used perhaps a bit under 2 more oz tonight on this pizza. I’ve done this many times, so won’t rewrite in entirety. But I did weigh the chard … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; Brussels sprouts – 12 April 2017

Spaghetti with re-refurbished sauce – 9 April 2017

I didn’t get the sourdough recipe started yesterday (or today, for that matter) so no pizza tonight. With D and me doing our taxes and taking a workout walk (mild – D’s foot still hurts if he walks too fast) … Continue reading
