Salmonella on a plate!
I was really pushing the envelope on this one.
I took some slightly freezer burned and still frozen chicken tenders (with all the talk about chicken and quick meals today, I had to have them), then cut/sawed them up while they were squirting all over my counter. Got them going in some EVOO, with s&p and garlic powder (didn't feel like burning real garlic). Flipped them a couple times. Rinsed my flipper off in hot water, after all it was thawing chicken I was flipping. I still had more ingredients to add and flip.
It felt like the time was right, so I added some frozen bacon. A short while later I added some onions, then green beans (some of the chicken still had just a little red on a side or two....). Hey, did those beans feel a little wet and slippery.....?
Cut up some fresh garlic and tossed that in.
A splash of my 20 year old soy sauce. I don't go through soy sauce that fast I guess And it's from before the time of dates, so it must still be good.
Then another ten minute wait and in goes some baby spinach, fresh out of the bag...... dated 3/11. OK, that was a few days better than the already opened beans anyway.

And walah!
Everything tasted pretty good.
If you don't hear from me, you'll know what happened.
And I won't even get into the cutting board discussion

So far so good, Barb.
It's the first time I ever mixed chicken with other stuff that cooks at different times. One pot, one spatula, one cutting board.... we'll see The day is still young.

That's just decadant YT

lol pacanis. good to see you made it.

last night i had to go to a wake for my friend's dad, so dinner afterwards was a sausage, hot peppers, and onion hero, parm, with extra sauce.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Last night had me throwing together a sort of free-for-all pasta dish - lol!!

Cooked up a bag of artisinal-type Basil-Garlic short-cut taglietelle pasta & tossed it with sliced Mozzarella/Garlic/Artichoke chicken sausages, a drained can of quartered artichoke hearts, a can of diced tomatoes, 2 handfuls of fresh baby arugula, & some sprinklings of dried Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, & crushed red pepper flakes.

Came out pretty darn good for a "what do I have in the house" kind of meal.
