    Default Use it all

    After a houseful of guests while we were away I had a batch of leftovers in
    the fridge.

    They has pretty much cooked what I had left out but it was time to clean out
    the fridge.

    Leftover 1/2 pineapple.

    Diced and it became a pineapple upside down cake. Time to put the heavy
    cream into the NO cream whipper to keep it from spoiling.

    Leftover rice & 1/3 grilled tri-tip.

    The tri tip got sliced and then warmed in a 50/50 mix of Yamada marinade &
    water.

    The leftover rice became Fried Rice with cabbage & veggies.


    The pasta sauce is in the freezer. It was augmented with a cooked chicken
    breast & 2 grilled burger patties all chopped up in the food processor.

    Tonight we use the last of the green chili with pork.

    BTW my complements to the discoverer of CRASH potatoes - they're a hit with
    company.

    So are you using more leftovers - I still have a problem not cooking for a
    small army....

    :-)

    Regards

    Dimitri

    Since I'm seriously trying to lose weight and dad is living on protein
    shakes (he's very ill at the moment and I'm having a hell of a time
    getting him to eat), the dogs are getting the leftovers...

    I've got a batch of sausage, eggs and chinese dumplings that will be
    their breakfast in the morning.

    I don't feed leftovers to the dogs on a frequent basis so I'm not
    worried about it affecting their health. They are active enough, they
    can use the calories...

    The Corgie won't get any. She's too fat.

    Left over pinapple!

    Heres one from the vaults


    Commercial ice cream and ordinary whipped
    cream may be used effectively in the following
    recipe, the "spun sugar" at the end can be
    eliminated and the alcohol in the liquor while
    very nice may be dispensed with however for the
    sake of a more liquid puree of strawberries it
    should be replaced with either a non alcohol
    champagne or other appropriate fruity liquid. The recipie
    can be reduced to half to serve 4-5.

    Fraises a La Sarah Bernhardt

    serves 8-10

    Choose 3-4 pounds of fresh
    strawberries and remove their stems. Put 2/3 of
    the nicest ones in an enamelled tureen, sprinkle
    them with powdered sugar, add 5-6 glasses of
    Vieille Cure [curaco or benedictine liquor or any
    fruit liquor though orange flavour is
    traditional], and place the tureen on ice. Pass
    the rest of the strawberries through a fine sieve,
    mix 250 grams of sugar into the resulting puree,
    and add it to the rest of the strawberries.
    Separately, use preserves of pineapple to prepare
    a fruit pulp as follows: with one fork hold the
    pineapple in place, and with another fork tear the
    fruit into a pulp. Sprinkle with 250 grams of
    sugar and keep on ice. In advance, prepare 1 &
    1/2 litres of vanilla ice cream and 3/4 litres of
    whipped cream Chantilly.

    To serve:

    Take a crystal bowl of the necessary size,
    fill the bottom with vanilla ice cream, and place
    the whole strawberries on top. Mix the strawberry
    puree into the whipped cream Chantilly. Cover the
    strawberries with the pineapple pulp and then add
    the whipped cream a la fraise. The mixture of the
    last 2 ingredients should be such as to give the
    illusion of a beautiful sunset. Throw a lace of
    spun sugar over this delicious dessert to complete
    the presentation.

    The above is taken from a biography of Auguste
    Escoffier, imo, it is a better recipe than in
    either his "la grand cuisine" or "ma cuisine" if
    the archaic nature or overly elaborate preparation
    needs any further elucidation please feel free to
    ask for clarification.

    My stepfather reached a point where he would not eat, so I know this is
    a hard for you. He was on liquids, so we would make gumbo, run it in a
    blender, but still, he would barely eat. I hope it gets better.

    Now that my nest is empty, leftovers can be a problem. Some things
    just don't freeze well so you end up eating them forever. I have to
    be really careful with vegetables because leftover cooked veggies can
    be hard to face. It's even more of a challenge now, because my
    freezer died on Tuesday.

    That tri tip probably would have become sandwiches for work and
    combined with the rice and stuff in the cupboard, a burrito for
    dinner. I've made Barb's rhubarb custard cake with pineapple instead
    of rhubarb.

    What are CRASH potatoes?

    Thanks.

    The protein shakes are working so far, and I got him to eat an oz. or so
    of some Cream Havarti cheese this morning. I've just got to figure out
    what he will eat! I'll try some cottage cheese later today.

    I figure dairy is better than nothing and cottage cheese is a quality
    protein.

    I tried tempting him with some ravioli in marinara this morning
    (resorting to "treat" foods here!) but it was no go. <sigh>

    I have some soup frozen in individual portions in the freezer. He did
    mention yesterday that he might like some chicken soup, but I'll have to
    make sure it's a puree, not chunky.

    Step by step is here:

    I add cheese at the very end.

    BTW the steaming takes a much shorter time than I expected.

    Thanks Dimitri.
    He has a lot of serious back pain with a compression fracture.
    He's almost done with the antibiotics for the septicemia.
    I can't hardly get him out of bed either.
