That sounds like me on mny occassions. Only it's milk, cream cheese and cheddar cheese I call it loaded mac and cheese.

I made a small pot of chili using the other half of yesterday's burrito burger mix. Also made oven baked French fries using one baking potato. For some reason, my fries don't come out as good as they might. Nicely browned but not crispy enough for me, although they are done perfect on the insides. O well. They were good with some chili spooned on top and some shredded cheddar.

I had some leftover spice rub that I made for our Super Bowl ribs, so I sprinkled a bunch of it on some bone in, skin on chicken thighs and browned them up in a skillet. After removing the grease from the pan I slathered them with some Jack Daniels's barbeque sauce, and shoved them in the oven. The thighs are now sharing space with some spuds, and fresh asparagus with olive oil and Italian seasonings.

Now that looks good S&P!

We were out Monday night for Chinese food, brought the leftovers home, so doctored them up for tonight's meal.
The chicken chowmein was a little plain just chicken and noodles so I stir fried some veggies in the wok and tossed the noodles in to reheat, also grabbed some Chinese deli fried rice at the the grocery store on the way home from work and added some peas and scrambled the last of the quail eggs into it. The meal was rounded out with the leftover pork Chop Suey and boneless honey garlic pork. Not bad......the chowmein was definitely improved. ;)

Grilled cheese sandwiches here. Enough stress lately that neither of us particularly feel like cooking..

I made Kade's Asian Noodle Salad tonight. I love it and have made it a few times. I cut the recipe in half since it's just me, and omitted the hot chili sesame oil because I didn't have any. I threw some slivered toasted almonds on top, just because I had them and thought it would be a good way to use them up.

Rest in peace, Kades, your recipes live on.

A "salad" of chicken, chickpeas, cucumber, celery and avocado dressed with pesto and mayo.
