So last night my husband worked incredibly late and actually ended up getting home ealy this morning. This happens from time to time. When this does happen my son and I get a little experimental in the kitchen. For those who don’t know, I went to culinary school. I’m pretty dang good if I do say so myself. Anyway, I like to makeup new dishes when he’s gone and try them out on son and myself. The dish we made last night was SO good I wish we had more leftovers to make it again! We had some leftover grilled chicken from a bday party last weekend. (yes it’s still good) I had pre-cooked some pasta ’cause you just never know when you might need it. Now what to do. Well I’m a huge fan of Mexican food so I grabbed the salsa and jalapenos.
First I melted some butter, sauted the chicken, added the jalapenos, pasta then the salsa. I topped it with 2 pieces of sliced cheese and stirred it all up. YUMMY is not even the word for this! It was so good is almost melted in your mouth! Didn’t take a picture of it b/c it was scarffed up faster than my brain processed “hey you ought to take a picture”.
This is my frugality tip. Experimentation may lead to a yummy creation! Get creative in the kitchen with your leftovers. Sure the family dog LOVES scraps but how much should he really eat? And what if you don’t have a dog? I can not promise the same yummy results but you are sure to have fun and learn a thing or too. If you ever have any cooking questions I’ll be happy to try and help.
