Now, I’m not saying that I am frying all the foods all the time, but I will say that occasionally there are foods I want to fry, and I kept a pot of oil ready for frying for awhile. Since it was already poured, it made me more likely to find dishes to try. I was able to reuse the oil more because I didn’t end of cooking meats with it this time.
I was going to make a galette I saw from somewhere that had ham and cheese…but then the recipe didn’t sound great, so I decided to take a galette I had already made and liked, and change it. I was making this recipe during the start of staying at home during the pandemic, so I was trying to make the most of the remaining food in our fridge as I figured out meal planning for so many people. It is flexible and you can use what you have. Next time I would maybe even add in some more carrots.
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, but trying to make more leftovers from meals, too. This is a great recipe for leftovers. You could easily make more chicken and vegetables to have multiple meals from this. Unfortunately I forgot to take a finished picture, but here is one from when I was reheating the leftovers with a side dish.
We had a super rainy and chilly January here and I was trying to make all of the comforting foods I could find. Soup is top of the list.
A friend got me a Dairy-Free cookbook to try some new recipes we can all eat. I don’t have to make things fully dairy-free anymore, but it is helpful for dishes that are hard to convert otherwise. This recipe has a bunch of set up and pre-cooking before the baking part, but I did much of it ahead, and then baked it later.
Let’s start off the year with something easy and customizable. I have been branching out with different stir fry recipes but haven’t been sharing on here because it seemed repetitive. But at the same time, they have been getting slightly modified with changes to perfect them, so it might be nice to document the process.
