Update on post #11 (give me a minute!)
Tonight I made on of my favorite fridge-clearing dishes I think I've ever made. If I factor in the number of ingredients it used up, I would consider this the best ever.
So, I got to thinking, what have you created out of bits-and-bobs from the fridge/freezer/pantry that wowed the crowds and begs for a repeat (if you ever would have written a recipe down--oh well!)
Bonus points (self awarded, so feel free to be generous!) for the proportion of ingredients that were used up.
Here's my offering:
Smoked salmon and cucumber salad:
Mix in yummy proportions:
Smoked salmon (NW style, not lox)-- didn't quite use up all this
Cucumbers (if overgrown, scoop out seeds which I feed to the chickens)-- used up!
Grated carrots--last 2!
Homemade honey mustard dressing--gone!
Tamari glaze--from glazed eggplant 2 weeks ago--gone!
Even though it was far from being used up, we sprinkled some gomasio (salt+toasted sesame) that nobody wants to ever use.
