Sunday Dinner = Tuesday Leftover Supper...



After Cole Slaw Epic Saturday, I wasn't looking to create a can-you-top-this Sunday dinner! I had twisted my ankle sometime late Friday, and got to limp through the week-end- so grilling outdoors sounded like too much hopping in and out of the house. It wasn't terribly hot, so I figured roasting some Italian flavor marinated chicken breasts and leg quarters, along with scalloped potatoes Alfredo would do nicely! The only packs of chicken I had were pretty big, and I realized left over chicken was going to feature heavily in our diet for a few days...
Monday, I spent all day with the Regional sales mgr., making sales calls on some customers that hadn't already bugged out for vacation. When I got home, my wife knew what kind of a day I had, said "Culvers?" and I said "Let's go!"...A good burger I didn't have to cook was a perfect way to wind down... I did notice the major percentage of clientele at Culvers around 730PM is heavy set, and eating ice cream...
Tuesday when I got home, I told my wife we'd better start working on recycling the chicken, and offered to make a "Chicken Wet Burrito!". To all of you that are relatively new to this blog, a "Wet Burrito" around these parts is a dry burrito with sauce and melted cheese on the outside! Cubed chicken, shredded lettuce, diced fresh tomatoes, some sauce and cheese was the filling. Wrapped in a large flour tortilla, then heated with Pepper Jack Cheese, a sprinkling of shredded Colby, and an enchilada sauce covering it until cheese melted. My son works a 2nd shift close by, and happened to call us whining about starving (saving gas, bicycling to work now!) so he got one too! It really was good- spicy, filling, and easy/fast to make! Oh yeah! By the way, the burrito was cooked in a Microwave- highly unusual for me....

To All- My uncharacteristic response time to all of you was due to a "Mother-Of-All-Storms" 24hr power outtage in this area. Downed trees, tree limbs, signs, power lines, flooded roads, etc. I thank you all for your comments, and will be around to visit your exceptional blogs a little later tonight!

Buf!

Your Blog is mouthwatering!!

Do you ALWAYS prepare such elaborate scrumptious meals?!

Cycling down to work seems a good idea. I think its perfect for the health regime of the people of America to begin with!

I make do with my two hours of Yoga each morning :)

mona- Generally, only the Sunday meal is the 1/2 day epic! I always "overcook" so Monday, and sometimes Tuesday we can quickly fix a good meal from leftovers.. Two hours of yoga! I do one pushup out of the bed until I'm vertical...

Beth said...

mmmmmm, burritos....I'm so hungry right now!

happy 4th Buff!
