What's for Dinner?

Hi Boys and Girls!!

This is what I had in my refrigerator. I was hungry and it was time for dinner. Roberto ate leftover risotto/sausage and added mushrooms. He liked it. But I did not want to eat that. Besides it was only enough for one!

So here is what I had to work with:
  • leftover grilled Brussels sprouts. They were grilled with olive oil and garlic
  • half of one sweet red pepper
  • handful of organic tiny squash, some yellow, some green
  • one small uncooked sweet potato
So, I sauteed the chopped up sweet potato in 1 tablespoon olive oil. I then added the veggies and Brussel sprouts. I let this simmer for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, I made a pot of brown rice using leftover organic chicken broth for the liquid http://www.pacificfoods.com/our-foods/broths/natural-free-range-chicken-broth The veggies were served on a bed of rice.
I had to have some nice wine with it so I chose
Chateau Ste Michelle http://www.ste-michelle.com/
Harvest Select Riesling that I had bought at Costco http://www.costco.com/ They have a great wine department.
So, I had a very good dinner despite the fact that I had very little to work with.
Here is my dinner:
Be creative. Look and see what you have in the fridge. You will be suprised what you can make of it!
Always keep on hand organic chicken broth, canned mushrooms, brown rice, canned beans and of course,
good wine!

Until next time...be good to yourself and kiss a baby.
