Alone Left-overs...



Tonight, when I came home from work, my wife was gone to her class.. Leftovers were threatening to take over the fridge, and I had no one to feed but myself! Sunday, I broiled about 2-1/2 lbs of my seasoned chicken tenders- knowing about 1/2 of them were going to be turned into chicken salad. I like chicken salad sandwiches,or on lettuce as a salad, or packed into a cantalope, or in a tortilla wrap! As I had to please no one but myself, I made a wrap! Heated the flour tortilla until soft, spread a little extra mayo, splashed a dab of hot sauce on it, put down shredded lettuce, piled in the chicken salad (cooked cubed chix, two hard boiled eggs, choppped, celery, onion, mayo, mustard, and Mrs. Dash!). Folded it over and ate the heck out of it! When you are eating alone, it can get pretty elemental, no side dish, or table settings... just a good bite to eat! I have to say, it actually was pretty good!

You're all wrapped up in comfort. I love to eat alone in the middle of night. Me, the peanut butter jar, saltines, & my jug of milk.

This is like ME over here these days...( with my son gone & hubby hardly home)

I do the same...pop in tid bits & be done with it!

Though your meal sounds more wholesome!

It's great when you only have yourself to feed you can have all your favourite foods! :)

Wow that sounds good! But I'd have to go without the hot sauce! Just the smell makes me sick!

Finn said...

Oh the interesting dinners I've had when alone!

You know, I think this is the first time one of your creations didn't appeal to me in the least... wonder why?

Nice blog, glad I stopped by.

I've never heard of chicken packed into a cantaloupe. I'm definitely going to have to try that.

I adore chicken salad...I especially enjoy it stuffed in a fresh ripe tomato; the way mom use to make.
