I'm home from a very long day of flying. It wasn't supposed to be so long, but mechanicals happen.
Now, I'm hungry. Starving, to be exact. And after looking in my refrigerator and cupboards, I haven't a clue about what to fix. I have all the staples, and a refrigerator with tons of left overs. So why is it so difficult to decide what to fix?
Cooking by the Numbers to the rescue.
You enter the ingredients that you have in the house into their lists, and voila! Out come ideas and recipes. This is perfect for when the gourmet cooking juices aren't flowing, or when you're in a rut about the stuff that you've been eating. Or, when you've put in a long day at work and are so tired that you can't think straight, but now that you have to eat --- and soon!
These aren't gourmet dishes by any means, but they are simple. And that's exactly what I needed to decide what to have for dinner tonight: Chicken Casserole with Bacon and Mushrooms.
