As I have explained earlier, the weather here has made mundane(or fun!) tasks difficult to the point of "screw it". Sundays, I usually grocery shop. My wife was gone for the week-end, and I didn't feel that ambitious so I checked my supplies for ingredients to make a dinner. I decided chicken,mushroom noodle casserrole on a cold, snowy day would be good. Simmered chicken, got out stuff for sauce-then I realized I had no egg noodles, just Italian type pastas. Had to abort plan, but what to do with 2-1/2lbs of cooked chicken breasts? Made a quick switch to chicken spaghetti-chunks of tender white meat in a sauce of chix broth,tomato base pasta sauce and mushrooms, served over the pasta. Good stuff, but a ton left over! Last night, took remaining sauce and made a chicken, mushroom,pepperoni pizza! Lots of Provolone, Parmasan,Mozzarella & Romano grated or shredded to tie it together.
Anytime we can do "Leftover Control" we always feel like forward progress was accomplished!
