Wednesday challenge: Favorite food and recipe
I don't cook. I heat. For a couple of years I lived alone and got by with doing easy to fix stuff like Hamburger helper, tuna helper and such.
Here are a couple of things I came up with to heat.
1. Barbeque sloppy joes: Brown a pound of hamburger, smother with French's Cattleman's BBQ sauce, add diced bell pepper, chopped onions or dehydrated onions. Make sandwiches out of it.
2. Pineapple angle food cake: 1 can shredded pineapple, box of angle food cake. Mix pineapple in the cake mix. Bake as directed on the box.
3. Cheese and olive spread: Take a package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, mix with a small can of diced ripe olives. Mix and let set in the refrigerator of an hour. Use as a spread on bagels, on crackers, as a sandwich.
4. Green Chile dip: 1 package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, tub of sour crème, package of diced green chili. Mix ingredients, dive in. Got this from a Mexican Restaurant in Farmington, NM.
5. Pan fried fish. Take fileted tilapia or salmon or thawed frozen shrimp (I like larger ones with the tails off) Cook in a skillet in butter or olive oil cover with rosemary and garlic.
6. Spicy spaghetti: Fix noodles, instead of using tomato sauce try on can of El Pato sauce. Add frozen meatballs or ground hamburger or chicken strips.
That pan fried fish sounds good! How did you come up with the idea to put El Paso sauce in spaghetti instead of the typical spaghetti sauce? I never would have thought to do that, but I can see how that would be good, too.
In New Mexico we eat everything spicy. Salsa doesn't work and I used El Pato for tacos so made the leap. Thanks for your comment.
Thanks for coming by! I love cream cheese and olives--- it's a staple in my house! And, I think I'm going to try your pan fried fish. I've never thought of doing them that way (and I don't know why... I do shrimp that way). Trying to get more fish into our diet, so that's a good (and easy) way to do it!
Happy to oblige, Judy. Not too many remember the recipes from the commercials on the old Hallmark Hall of Fame shows.
