I turned leftover chicken into a pasta dish.

I rubbed chicken thighs under and over the skin with Penzeys Mural of Flavor seasoning and salt, brushed them with soy sauce, then roasted them.

For sides, I reheated leftover risotto with some half and half and chicken drippings and roasted some asparagus. Good stuff

I made Sloppy Joe's with Manwich Bold, and I used the cast iron skillet. Everything tastes better with this pan. :)

Served on bakery fresh rolls with a side of Lay's Classic Potato Chips. Gourmet dinner. Ha ha

Hard to shake loose from vacation mode. Last night we went to a neighborhood church dinner with Baked ham, very good Svedish meatballs, scalloped potatoes, veggies and Cherry Pie dessert. Tonight we went to a VFW steak fry. Always order Rare at these functions, so at least you have half a chance your steak isn't too well done. Both dinners were ~$10 range, although one was senior citizen discount, Tomorrow, it's somebody's Lenten fish fry, we haven't decided destination yet.

Munching on leftovers. DH is still under the weather, but he finally went back to work today. Geez, there's nothing more high maintenance than a man with a cold.

GG, for someone who doesn't like ookies, you sure cook a lot of chicken thighs. I bet by the time your DH is done cleaning off the bones from the pieces you pass to him, he has room for, maybe, one thigh of his own! I go ahead and cook a breast for me if I do dark meat for Himself - absolutely no chance of even seeing an ookie.

*********************

When I made ham and potatoes this last time (divided into two dishes), I made the sauce too loose. Since the one I baked up tonight was the one I made with cheese, that runny sauce was shared among the ham-and-potatoes and the steamed veggies. I'd say "good planning", but it was more like "dumb luck".

And how long does it take to recognize, acknowledge and understand the truth to your statement. I wish more people knew that men really are closer to death more often than any one knows, even if it exhibits itself as "simply" a cold or flu. Just listen to old Righteous Bros, Pink Floyd or Springsteen. Probably even the Beach Boys for all I know. So make chicken soup. Guys like to have something familiar to hold onto and a soup spoon pacifies. We always feel better. Eventually.

This is what I feel like when I have a cold.

Sounds yummy! I haven't been able to find the Bold version of Manwich lately So I jazz it up with extra Worcestershire sauce
