Ah, don’t ya love when you have those weeks where you just can’t get yourself to the grocery store and it becomes a game to put together meals utilizing what’s left in your bare cupboards? Don’t know what I’m talking about? I don’t believe you.
I think it’s mandatory to happen every once in a while. You get to use up goods you didn’t realize you had. And people are always saying how cooking can be an art form. Well this really gets you thinking creatively!
I recently had one of those weeks. It came to meal time and I didn’t have anything planned and was clueless as to what was even in the house. So my husband and I had a little grilled cheese off. Usually my grilled cheese consists of the basics – butter, bread and American cheese. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of mayo. But this time I went a step further and added bacon! Never have I done this, really pushed my limits there, I know. But it was a lot of fun and it felt good to make use of some things I rarely touch on a regular basis.
I think my husband had a similar concoction but with weird cheeses and walnuts thrown in. What hodge podge meals have you come up with when you’re not able to keep up with your meal planning/grocery shopping and the pickin’s get slim?
