Wednesday, 1/19/2011, What's cooking?

At the moment it's mushroom tomato sauce (maybe with green olives also) served over spinach tagliatelle and steamed baby spinach.

You?

Last night, I made egg noodles with Alfredo sauce to which I added a couple of tablespoons of sherry for a Newburg kind of taste, and heated up some imitation Krab with a 2/3 stick of margarine and a few drops of 1/3 less sodium soy sauce with a sprinkle of Dill. It wasn't very good, which I why I didn't post it.

This morning I had a bowl left over from last night that I nuked adding a tiny bit of water. It was delicious! The added moisture made a definite difference in the texture and I mixed in the Krab instead of leaving it on top.

I had two containers of the Alfredo noodles that I put in the freezer, plus another 1/2# of Krab, so I'm thawing one of the containers and the rest of the Krab for a replay of how it tasted this morning for my dinner tonight.

I think I'll take it a step further tonight and put it in a casserole and bake it to add a crunch to the top.

I have no idea what I will eat tonight. My usual Wednesday night alone. I have a plethora of leftovers to choose from so will throw something together from that.

They'll look like this, except I bought some cilantro yesterday, so won't have to dress them up with green onions

I really like that Sam.....he's great for showing that anybody can cook. He comes up with great stuff too.

Heading to the grocery so let you know when I get back about dinner.
