We had shlecken-flecken tonight. I'm not sure if it is a real thing, or something my grandma made up, but it's delicious!! Egg noodles mixed with scrambled eggs and chunks of ham leftover from last night's ham dinner. We also had potato patties. Leftover mashed potatoes fried in Crisco until the outsides are nice and crunchy and salty. This is a specialty of DH's grandma! Not a super healthy meal, but it was yummy!!!
I tried a new recipe of vegetable ribbon "pasta" which was spiral cut zucchini. I used turkey sausage instead of the measly slices of bacon called for. It was pretty good even though DD didn't like it, and she's my good eater. She didn't like the zucchini linguine with marinara sauce I made last week either.
First night of cooking all week, and likely the only one, so I decided to actually cook: risotto with basil, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini, salad of baby kale and carrots, and some multigrain bread. Now that I have earned my keep it will be back to the fend-for-yourself routine the next few days.
I discovered the recipe for the Food & Wine Festival kalua pork sliders this weekend. They are absolutely delicious. Had leftovers tonight. It's one of those recipes where the flavors intensify (and get more spicy!) over time. I highly recommend this recipe! A couple of changes - I used fresh wheat buns from the grocery store, which I lightly toasted. (King's Hawaiian rolls also work.) Also, based on my husband's Hawaiian aunt's recommendation, I poked the pork all over with a long fork, rubbed it with 2 tsp. of liquid smoke and 1 tablespoon of Ono Hawaiian seasoning (from World Market), and didn't cut it in half or use the banana leaves (couldn't find them).
We're having roasted turkey breast (warm) on Costco torta rolls with homemade chiptotle mayo, guacamole and havarti cheese. Salad for a side dish. I seriously could eat the chiptotle mayo at every meal it's so good!
