142.6…A Home For Bland Food
Before it was time to cook dinner last night, I enjoyed a glass of wine while relaxing on the couch.
Last night’s recipe sounded good: Chicken and Mushrooms in a Garlic White Wine Sauce. As I was preparing it, it seemed to need a little “oomph” so I doubled the garlic, added extra salt and pepper and so on.
Boring. Bland. Oh well. It did help when I added extra parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes to it. During the boring meal, I was concerned about what to do with the leftovers. I hate wasting food but I knew that I wouldn’t want to eat it any other time. I had a bright idea! I texted my friend Lisa if she wanted it. No…this isn’t being mean or being a bad friend. Lisa LOVES bland food! She thinks mashed potatoes are spicy. No joke. She loves my bland food. And guess what…she was more than happy to take it. :)
This morning’s breakfast was comforting and delicious (unlike last night’s dinner).
Scrambled egg beaters with shredded cheddar cheese and a piece of toast.
I went to spin class, did stuff around the house and made lunch. Tuna sandwich and grapes.
I took my son to boy scouts and spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing. Oh…I did bake “Crack Brownies” for a party we are going to tonight. I also ate one to make sure it was ok. It was. :)
What do you do with the leftovers of something you don’t like?
haha that worked out! ;) I hate when you oomph up the flavor and everything and it still ends up a little meh! I find its most common with past dishes too -- but if you double/triple the veggies with all the adjustments, and decrease the pasta and such -- it works like a charm! <3 at least for my weird selfReplyDelete
hope you're having a great weekend girly! xoxo
I am about to re-heat the dish...am scared! Had no idea you put extra garlic and salt and pepper in it! It might "perm" my hair! Yikes! Will let you know how it goes...ReplyDelete
I let the boring leftovers hang out in the fridge to see if anyone is starving enough to finish them up. I have a 4 day rule...and after that, out they go! Off to check out your crack brownies :)ReplyDelete
I usually bring it into work! I work with boys, they will eat anything! Crack brownies? ummm yum!ReplyDelete
OMG! I was reading this in the car yesterday and I was cracking up!! What do I do with leftover bland food? I top it with lots of hot sauce!!!ReplyDelete
I can morph pretty much any leftovers into a soup! Hooray for crushed red pepper! :DReplyDelete
