Anybody Got a Tums?.....


What to do on a rainy Sunday with no one home?
How about raiding the freezer and the fridge, and
and see what you can improvise?
Pic #1...Pesto! I didn't have any Pine Nuts so I used
Pecan Pieces. No Basil so I used Parsley and Cilantro.
No fresh Parmesian, so I used the sprinkle kind. Garlic.
But I DID have Olive Oil...Blend, and dump over pasta!
Pic #2...In a bag add sliced Summer Squash, sliced Tomatoes,
sliced Peppers, cut up chunks of Cheese, chopped Cilantro
and Parsley, Add about a cup of Italian Bread Crumbs,Onions, Garlic
shake well, dump in an Oven Dish.....Bake!!
Pic#3...Season the Fresh Pork Butt to your taste, cover with
foil and bake at 300 for 6 hours. At this point you can either
have Pulled Pork, or you can have a delicious filling for
Tamales. The Pork just falls apart.
Pic#4...In the bowels of my freezer I found a package of
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that had a Little Caesars Logo,
so it must have been bought for a fund raiser. There was
enough for 5 Dozen Cookies. I thawed it out and they turned
out Terrific!!
Reese finally made it home, my buddy Alex stopped by, and we
feasted like Kings.....
It's GOOD to be The King!!

I make that zucchini thing all the time in summer. It totally rocks. And the Meat-Eater-in-Chief makes the pork butt, a LOT. We have it pulled on buns with a good BBQ sauce and pickles. But the cookies are killin me...they look wonderful--have't had em in ages.

What a creative chef you are! Love the look of that veggie wonder in pic 2!

Have you met Auntie Anne?

I'm a believer in cooking improvisation - some of the best foods are created that way. (But I wouldn't put nasty cilantro in anything.)

Akelamalu said...

G-Man said...

Cilantro is delicious and fresh and zippy!

You going all "domestic" on us? What a fun way to spend the afternoon. I make pesto out of whatever herbs I have available. Usually I mix up oregano, rosemary, thyme, chopped almonds, lemon juice, parmesan, garlic, olive oil. Mmmmmmm.

My son would love a care package of pulled pork please!

I would have loved to cook up a storm
on sat or sun- however no time! It is pouring here now- maybe I can cook today!

Evelyn said...
