… that’s a mouthful, and it was! oh, before I forget, Havarti – old Cheddar was my first choice, but package was sealed. Again, the king of using what I got on hand… pasta, cheese, sour cream. Beans and bread were gratis… courtesy Iris and Tiff respectively. Thanks gals! Hmmm, am I really the king of shite, lol?!
my latest helping-my-sorry-old-ass-body kick that I’m on. loaded with lots of the good stuff. a quickie google search, and you’ll know what I’m talkin’ ’bout Willis!! today I made sammies on Italian rolls; leftover chicken, red onions, hothouse tomatoes, havarti … and my new superfood friend, the avocado. reheated rice and potatoes (more leftovers – waste not want not) served on the side and bob’s yerfuckin uncle. a coupla pics y’all.
… a quickie post, a few pics y’all. Thinly sliced oven roasted turkey, havarti, Boston lettuce, hothouse tomatoes, low-fat mayo and my favourite Yukon Gold potato bread. Used my Mario Batali grill pan, and made a quickie cambozola dressing for the sweet potato fries – oh, and that’s Maldon sea salt flakes too. Enjoy!!
My best attempt avoiding the “O” word in my title, lol. Can’t help myself, on another omelette roll of late … damp, wet weather puts me in the mood for stick to my ribs food. This always hits the gut-filling spot … prolly be doubling (or tripling) down with that ragin’ bitch Sandy unleashing her fury … already felt that cold wind firsthand *shivers*. Now? I’m hunkered down!! A few pic y’all. 😉
havarti, ham, cremini, tomato, red onion omelette & hash browns w/toasted English muffin
some shrooms showing through the eggs – LOVE IT
almost done y’all
… yeah yeah, quit rolling yer eyes (and don’t think I can’t see you ’cause I can, lol). Just a quickie post y’all … mushrooms (cremini today) are always a must, fresh herbs too (oregano, thyme, Italian parsley) when available from my garden (and don’t forget my use the best eggs rule) … but what I’m really impressed/surprised with … and admittedly I stumbled upon it purely by accident, is the combination of two cheeses … had a bit of both – equal portions left in the fridge, so it was a no-brainer – Greek feta and creamy havarti!! I’ve NEVER EVER seen those used in tandem … in ANY meal, or any recipe … so yes, I will deservedly take credit (please forgive me while I sit back and gloat, lol). The crumbly, dry, saltiness of the feta plays off beautifully of the easy to melt, smooth textured, mild and slightly nutty flavour of the havarti … what a beautiful combination … sheer genius – if I do say so myself!! A couple of pics … served with generously buttered toasted English muffins … enjoy!!
Still working on (stretching and stretching AND modifying/reinventing) my grilled chicken breast from the weekend … yep, leftovers again. Quick in and out at my Highland Farms and I was good to go. Initially wanted bacon along with my chicken … but I’ve done that a gazillion times, and seeing mortadella on sale for $2.99/lb suddenly began thinking economically as well as inspirationally … and you know what? It worked! I’ve never seen this combo before, and a little part of me would like to think I invented the damn thing. Picked up some Portuguese rolls, creamy havarti, heirloom tomatoes, sweet onions, and Mrs. Whyte’s kosher pickles. Using my heavy duty (really … I mean HEAVY) Molto Mario grill pan, I panini pressed these beauties!!
These are THE best (take my word, they’re very good) …
The lid looks like it’s floating – sandwiches were SO thick …
And voilà … plated …
