Another rainy day in Cape Town so I'm making Manhatten Clam Chowder - wanted to make New England Clam Chowder but feel too guilty eating something with such a lot of cream in on a Monday

Got busy this weekend so I never got around to making the pasta sauce that I mentioned.
I'm going to do it tonight.

it's gonna be, clean out the refrigerator. I have two containers of pizza sauce, and some ricotta cheese that will be made into dinner tonight. I need to clear out the frig and in a few days come up with a large casserole to tide dh over until I return next Tuesday. now, what will that casserole be?

I season it and use it in a variety of ways. I made an onion relish and mix the two together for sandwich filling, do the same thing with pesto. Mix in taco seasoning with ricotta and pig out. mix in horseradish and a bit of yogurt for a dip..

Ooooohh.. that sounds good, taco seasoning and ricotta. I bought some 'good' stuff and it has been sitting in my fridge for close to a month now. May try it as a dip since I can't think of anything to cook with it except lasanga. DH is not much for cheese filled stuff. Has to have meat.

Thanks for the great ideas....
