Throw It Together


finished cabinetI make some weird things to eat now that Al is no longer here. I can not even give them a proper title, as I throw things together until I get it to the look and taste of edible. I thought I would let you know what I just prepared for myself for supper.

I browned a pound of ground turkey. While that was browning I cooked some whole wheat spaghetti. After the spaghetti had been drained, I added the cooked and crumbled meat. To this I added black and green olives, one large jar of spaghetti sauce with mushrooms, some fat-free shredded mozzarella cheese and one can of mushrooms. I mixed all of this and then added pepper, curry, onion flakes, garlic, a little basil and parmesan cheese. I stirred it constantly on low until cheese was melted. I tasted it and didn’t keel over from a bad taste, so this was complete.

I shredded by hand two carrots and a half-head of cabbage. I mixed some dill, celery flakes, paprika, pepper and a touch of dill pickle juice. I added fat-free sour cream and and a very small dash of sugar then  stirred well. This tasted pretty darn tasty.

I took some whole carrots that had the ends snipped off and were cleaned and nuked them for six minutes. Then I added curry, salt and butter. I mixed well with the left-over sour cream. It may not sound delicious, but Al would always ask for seconds on this. The carrots I will save for another meal, probably tomorrow.

I am not a chef but I do a pretty good job at throw-it-together meals with what I can find lying around the kitchen. No dessert, unless I have 1/2 cup of pineapple. This fruit tends to boost my sugars up quickly, so I have to go easy on this and most fruits. Apples are about the only fruit that keeps my sugars level.

Well now you know a little more about me. Just call me the fixer-upper girl. LOL
