Austrians make extra button dumplings on purpose so they could eat this the next day:

I cleaned out the fridge: broccoli soup with Philadelphia cheese, chopped up leftovers of some confused flatbread and browned cubed Leberkäse to sprinkle in ...

Today's lunch:

IMG_3535.thumb.jpeg.77142a0e214e1c8ad24aa46f4011292d.jpeg

 

Basically a repeat of last night's dinner:

IMG_3529.thumb.jpeg.e7694016baceb025e3233628054a423c.jpeg

was this Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Figs and Apricots and was excellent. 

I did not cook this myself, but claim half credit because of how it came about. I recently put up some salt-preserved citrus and mentioned this to my cousin.  She wanted to know what I did with it. Based on what I know she likes to cook, I sent her this link and a couple of others and dropped off a jar of preserved Meyer lemons that I made last year.  I think they came from her tree.  She immediately got to work and dropped off these leftovers meal kits, complete with chopped parsley and toasted pine nuts to sprinkle on top. There was one serving of couscous (last night's dinner) and a farro pilaf with a bit of kale and butternut squash that I had for lunch. 

The day before, I'd picked up a Po Boy and order of seafood jambalaya from a local restaurant for pre-Mardi Gras training.  The Po Boy was enough for 2 meals so when she dropped off this, I gave her the jambalaya.  Plus a big bag of limes from my tree. Gotta keep this thing going!

Fried leftover Trinxat (think thick potato cabbage pancake) with fried egg and blood sausage ... not exactly the sustenance one requires if merely working from the homeoffice, but oh so yummy 🤗

Something I would enjoy trying. Agreed more for cold weather outdoor worker sustenance. I can get house made blood sausage at the Alpine Market but 45 minutes away and not Pandemic friendly.  I can get Korean blood sausage closer but that is a different, though enjoyable, product. Sundae.

Made another batch of cakes, with whole blood oranges this time. Strong black tea to go with one cake:

Not yet used, but near my new home is this convenient noodle shack and its menu.

Too convenient to avoid. Could become a feature of life. I can't go out or get back in without passing it.

I had to Google "old friend" noodles, because the name caught my eye. Sounds like a pleasant warmer-upper on a cool winter's day.

Meatballs, mushroom cream sauce and “clean out the fridge mash” (potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, Savoy cabbage, onions, garlic, butter) ...

@Duvel – your “clean out the fridge mash” is something that would never occur to me and looks absolutely delicious!

 

@blue_dolphin – lovely gnocchi.  Is the color due to them being made from sweet potatoes or is it from being pan fried.

 

Lunch yesterday was leftovers from Super Bowl goodies:

Spinach and artichoke dip on toasts and Jessica’s grape jelly and BBQ sauce meatballs.

A little of each, I think.  The gnocchi were pan fried to give the golden brown color on two sides but they started out a pale orange color from the sweet potatoes and you can see that on the sides that didn't contact the pan.

idle to hear more on the

 

MBs w BBQ and grape jelly.

 

Id lov a few right now

These are one of the trashiest and most ridiculous of snacks, from the depths of the 1960s suburban USA.  There are many variations around.  My mom used to make a version with either apricot jam or orange marmalade and BBQ sauce and homemade meatballs.  The very trashiest version is the one that Jessica made: a bag of frozen meatballs, a jar of grape jelly and the same amount of your favorite bottled BBQ sauce.  You dump the bag of meatballs in a slow cooker, mix the jelly and BBQ sauce in a saucepan and pour it over the meatballs.  Two to three hours on HIGH or about six on LOW and there you go.  Everyone laughs like mad at them and then they evaporate in 15 minutes and you wish you'd made more!  😁
