Quiche
Friday, January 05, 2018      2 comments

I'm in the mood for quiche today. In fact, I have been for the past few days. Today I'm going to do something about it. I have a generic quiche recipe, and then I add whatever I have that sounds good. It can be a good way to clean out the f... Read more

Caribbean Chicken and Squash
Saturday, November 18, 2017      2 comments

I'm not really impressed with this recipe. It's OK, but not great. I'm not sure what i was expecting, but it didn't live up to my expectations. Maybe more salt would have helped, or using hot curry powder (like the original recipe calls for) ins... Read more

I got another pie pumpkin at Winco (well, three pie pumpkins, actually) and I'm using half of one of them in Caribbean Chicken and Squash. It's a new recipe; I'll tell you how it turned out tonight. It was big for a pie pumpkin and had lots of s... Read more

I ate too much tonight. Like twice as much as I had planned. Two servings each of chicken and cabbage. I was in a hurry, so I just scarfed it down. So, naturally, it cost twice as much as I had planned. Still wasn't bad, and it's easily offset b... Read more
Escalloped Cabbage
Friday, November 17, 2017      0 comments

I had doubts about this recipe. It is, after all, boiled cabbage. But I ran across a lot of similar recipes so I thought I'd give it a try. It's actually very good! I made it just as it is written, except for using a bit more butter. I think it ... Read more

Vegetable Marrow?
Wednesday, November 15, 2017      1 comments

I found a couple of recipes for Vegetable Marrow Chips, which look like they're supposed to be sort of like potato chips. I'm not entirely sure what vegetable marrow is. It's a really overgrown zucchini, isn't it? So overgrown and old that it tu... Read more

I needed to use up the other half of the pie pumpkin, so I made these tonight. Turned out pretty good, too. Definitely a keeper. I think I'll use more butter next time, and less cinnamon, but it was pretty good as is. I used pumpkin because it's... Read more

I'm not sure why, but this is going really easy this time. Usually keeping my food costs under $3.00 a day (my goal is no more than $100 for the month, but $3.00 a day is easier to see and figure on) is a challenge, but it hasn't been this year.... Read more
