I’m going out-of-town this week which means one thing-I’m cleaning out my cupboards and fridge since I don’t want to spend money on any food that may go bad.
Times like these call for some creativity so my meals for the next few days will either be one of two things-creative or weird.
Case and point-breakfast on Sunday.
Yes, those are Annie Chun’s Mini Wontons. Don’t hate, they are quite tasty at 10A.
The other night I made Mexican pizza topped with refried black beans, cheese, salsa and Wholly Guacamole
My two favorite foods combined? Nothing wrong with that.
Dinner on Sunday was something different. I really had no specific plan in mind but have a surplus of tuna fish in the cupboard so I took one can of tuna, shredded cheese, two mayo packets and black pepper and mixed together.
That still seemed kind of bland so I turned to my man Chef Paul for assistance.
I completely forgot about this seasoning but wanted to try something different. I won’t lie, I thought it was Dom Delouise at first since I haven’t seen Chef Paul in ages.
The tuna fish mix still looked quite mushy and wanted to add some crunch to it but unfortunately had no onion or celery on hand. I remembered a lone carrot in the fridge so I chopped half a carrot up and added to the mix.
I took a few sheets of defrosted phyllo dough, spread the mixture in the middle then formed a pocket. I sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray and sprinkled with garlic so it wouldn’t be too garlic but would have some more flavor.
I let those cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and had broccoli boiling as well.
And there you have it-a quick and different kind of meal.
On an unrelated note, this guy and commercial is really growing on me
Now I want some Arby’s, sigh. I don’t even know when the last time I had Arby’s was!
I also wanted to address some random searches that brought people to my blog in the past 30 days:
“how to shaka in a text message”–I don’t know how too, I’m sorry I failed you.
“chobani complaints”-No complaints here, Team CHO all the way!
“x-rated liquor, pomegranate schnapps, mango vodka, sour mix, pfx” –I have no clue what this is but I want it, like, now.
“shaka malta food”–I don’t know what this but I am curious…..
“leonardo dicaprio good in bed”–Um, I WISH I could help you wish this. I think he would be a tiger in the sack though. Rawr.
“shaka pace – ricky martin”—Must download!
“what is the name of the tuna the wonderfish commercial girl”
Her name is Elizabeth Bond, I finally looked it up since I got a lot of people who came to my blog hoping to find out who she was
Oh yeah, happy spring by the way!!
What’s a creative or weird meal you make with staple items in your kitchen?
