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!
- 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:
Always keep on hand organic chicken broth, canned mushrooms, brown rice, canned beans and of course,
Until next time...be good to yourself and kiss a baby.
