Lazy Sunday

Ok, it's confession time.

Arrived home hot and bothered and hungry. Dinner became corned beef hash made with a tin of corned beef, a tin of potatoes and a fried onion all cooked together with some mixed dried herbs with a little water (I like my CB hash to have gravy) and a spoonful of store-bought mango chutney. Accompanied it with frozen brussels sprouts.

(Well, at least the onion was a fresh one)

Talk about lazy! And I call myself a serious cook

Any more lazy Sunday confessions?

Everyone has a lazy day in the kitchen! (I did a lot of my "prep" yesterday, knowing it was going to be another "scorcher" day). Was it really hot "up north"?

(I have far worse lazy kitchen confessions by the way, but I don't think I feel like revealing them!)

Lazy Sunday here too. I cut up some ham sausage, cheese, pickles and put out smoked oysters and crackers. We called that supper tonight.

I have a picture in my album of Ritz and smoked oysters Quick dinner or something I called it.
Hey, it works. I had it a couple weeks ago, too. Not sure if it was Sunday or not.

A lady after my own heart! Nothing like doing your prep beforehand and then just putting it all together!

I was going to make chicken pot pie today. Had the oven on yesterday and decided to skip a day. I just rolled together some leftovers and made a burrito with seasoned ground beef, refried beans, onion, cheese. sour cream and jarred salsa. In the Microwave. Dinner in 5 minutes or less. Paper plate food, no mess no clean up. I'm not sure this is lazy, it sure is quick and easy on a hot day.

And why not indeed! Sounds lovely. (Apart from the oysters.)

Interesting point. What is "lazy" to one person is possibly "hey, look, I cooked!" to another. I cooked a recipe recently that required me to put fish (haddock) in a microwave. I was appalled! But actually it worked very well.

"Lazy" is in the eye of the beholder I think. At the end of the day, you want something tasty to eat sometimes, and don't have the time or energy to spend all day on it.

Nothing wrong with that.

One of the advantages of being retired and living alone is that when I cook it usually makes at least 4 servings. 1 to eat when I make it, 1 in the fridge for later, and 2 in the freezer for a nuked lazy dinner. I only have to mess up the kitchen once and still have 4 meals.

Also, crackers, with spreadable cheddar and smoked oysters feels decadent.
