More Food! What Else?






Friday night brought an impromptu supper.. the usual homemade pizza, but instead of a small one- a big one, as my son and his girlfriend came over to join us! Half of it was three cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, green pepper, and onion- while the other half was same sans green pepper and onion..
Saturday, wife had to work all day, but requested a Chef's salad for eats- no problemo!
Toppings were celery, carrots, bacon, ham, chopped hard cooked egg, shredded cheese and tomato... I like my Blue cheese dressing, she prefers sweet Italian..
Sunday brought a nice roast chicken, stuffed with an Italian flavored rice that was simmered in red sauce, and blended with ground Italian sausage. Good stuff! Ton of it left, as I melted some cheese over what didn't fit into bird and baked as a casserole! That last photo is my son's "to go" plate! We have brought him lunch where he works on Sunday for 10 years! Only a mile from our house..
Enough left overs to get us through a couple of days, my work is done here.. until next time! I think I'll bake a cake or something....

Ummmm..... Blue Cheese....

Char said...

I love blue cheese dressing. I buy the refrigerated kind then add more crumbled blue cheese to it.

I love how you come up with creative ways to turn leftovers into new dishes. It's great that you're set with meals for the next couple of days now. Everything sounds scrumptious!

Karine said...

I love blue cheese too! It has such a strong but distinct flavor!

A catered lunch for 10 years! Nice. You have a great family.

buffalodick said...

Kate- My favorite for 40 years!
Char- Me too!
BlueV- Rice casserole with chicken in it will probably be dinner tonight..
Karine- I like all cheese(almost!)..
Hit40- One way to see him at least once a week!

Homemade pizza....I haven't made one in ages. Good idea!

Marjie said...

I can't imagine enough leftovers to last for 2 days. Even Thanksgiving usually only gives me one meal worth of leftovers! My work is never done, sadly.

buffalodick said...

UrbanV- We make them fairly often- friends and family always look forward to a home made crust!
Marjie- More people to feed! I still cook like there is four of us, and there's only two inn the house now...

pinknest said...

Sounds hearty and delicious! I wish I could get a big heap o' leftovers, too.

g-man said...

I want a to go plate..........

Akelamalu said...

I adore Blue Cheese - on its own, as a dressing, anyway you want to serve it. :)

Kris said...

I love me a sunday roast!

jules said...

MMMMMMM. I'd love to try that rice!

buffalodick said...

Pink! You're back! Hope you had lots of fun..
G-man- Do you guys tailgate at Ann Arbor?
Ake- Me too!
Kris- Roasting a chicken is always a hit here! I brine it before, which makes leftovers less "fowl" smelling!
Jules- Rice was great- it's going to be a Monday night "rerun"!

Scarlet said...

I'm with G-Man, I would be happy with that to-go plate (including some of that homemade pizza!).

The Blonde Duck said...

Just telling it like it is said...

Awe.... you had the son and girlfriend over.... I'm not really looking forward to the girlfriend..
but I think I will be great...He's a pretty good kid!!! I love pizza...homemade even better!!!!

K said...

I love blue cheese.

I think you'd also be proud - I made homemade pizza on Sunday (using yeast and all that). It's so darn good.

buffalodick said...

Scarlet- Baking a banana carrot cake today! Wife's birthday..
The BlondeD- I'd like to but, have my orders!
Marmy- If I don't have her birthday dinner done, I might be immigrating...
Darngirl- I don't know how many girlfriends got hauled home over the years for free food by me...
K- Good for you! Amazing how less greasy home made crusts are!

Mona said...

O wow! EVERYTHING looks so marvelous!

The son's to go plate looks good to go!

& If I were there, it would become " too good to go" :D

Marjie said...

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Buff!

buffalodick said...

Mona- You ever come here, we won't let you go!
Marjie- Banana carrot cake(with chopped walnuts, and cream cheese frosting) is in oven- looks like a winner, so far!

Jen said...

That pizza looks great! Did you remember to save me a piece?

JihadGene said...

The chicken with rice & sausage sounds wonderful!

buffalodick said...

Jen- What a welcome guest you would be!
Gene- Good stuff(ing) if I do say myself!

John McElveen said...

Dude,

My new bestest friend! That is an awesome menu, and I know your son surely appreciates the plate! What an awesome gesture.

Good Looking Post :-)

John- Thanks! A kid will always be your kid... It's like trying to get gum off your shoe on a hot day....

Chris said...

Neat idea about the skewers used for trussing instead of twine.

buffalodick said...

Chris- I have both, but one is a lazy mans approach! I also baste bird with strips of bacon, so I don't have to baste as often!

OK, now I'm officially ravenously hungry.

Any leftovers left? :)

Bina said...

Okay. I don't know what sounds better. The pizza or the chicken. How 'bout sending me some and then I can decide?

How sweet! You take your son lunch. That makes my heart melt.
