We make "bachelor surprise".

Stir fry frozen mixed vegis (we like an "imperial mix" from Costco). Start with the vegis still frozen. When the vegis are thawed but not cooked yet, add up some leftover meat or ground beef and chopped onion. Add cooked rice. Sprinkle with lots of sesame seeds and a bit of tamari and maybe a hot sauce.

We use brown basmati rice. We always cook more than we need and freeze batches of leftovers. The frozen rice can be microwaved or steamed in no time.

And there's always pasta carbonara.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

I, too, am a huge believer in freezing portions of any meal that will do. Right now I have several meals of cassoulet, several of chili, one of a Portuguese kale/bean soup, several tomato sauces from the summer garden, and split pea soup. And this is in the freezer on top of my fridge (I no longer have a separate freezer). At any time I can nuke a meal for two in minutes. Almost all of them can be stretched with stock, broth, wine, water, V8/tomato juice into a soup and add crusty bread or crackers.

Brown Rice Plus

Hello everyone, It's been a while since I last visited. Missed you all. Here is a quick healthy recipe I would like to share:

You will need chicken breast cooked (leftover)
cook l cup brown rice in 2 cups of chicken broth

1 or 2 tablespoons EVOO heat (I use a cast iron skillet)
chop 1/2 sweet onion
chop 2 stalks celery

Add the cooked chicken breast cut into small pieces
Add enough cooked brown rice for each person
Add...here you have a choice. A bag of baby spinach or
cooked frozen peas.

All together stir...warm through and serve.

It is a favorite at our house.

Leftovers. I only cook for myself, but I still cook about a pound of meat at a time, basically 4 meals (at least). I eat one, keep one in the fridge for another meal, and freeze 2 servings.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
