(Not to be confused with the Reading Recap over at the other blog.) Here are some things I made over the last few weeks:
|Super Lazy Lite Mojito: mint leaves (or extract), diet lemon-lime soda, |
lime wedges, splash of rum.
|"Broken Lasagna." Was just O.K.|
|Or maybe I just got sick of it because there were SO MANY LEFTOVERS.|
|Braised Porkchops with Cherries |
Power went out while cooking and they STILL got overcooked.
|Mustard Steak, Brussels Sprouts, Potato Wedges w/Old Bay seasoning.|
I'm thinking my Old Bay is too old--tasted musty.
|Marinated Steak & Veggies|
(made with extra steak & brussels sprouts from Mustard Steak)
|Cute Calico Stretch|
Photo #2's recipe is from Food Network Magazine.
Photo #4's recipe is from Giant's budget recipes.
Photo #5-6 recipes are from Betty Crocker's Cooking for One. I'm totally stunned someone is selling it for 80 bucks. I'm pretty sure I inherited mine from the widowed neighbor who was like the grandma next door when I was growing up. A lot of the recipes are "out there" but this tandem recipe idea (cook once, make two meals) worked pretty well.
Photo #7 is some calorie-free dessert because you are not allowed to eat The Cat. No matter how cute she is.
