One of the things I really missed while being away from blogging for a while was Strange But Good, hostessed by the lovely Laura at Sprint 2 The Table. As I look at the dish I plan to share, I suppose it’s not that strange really…or am I just getting used to strange? I suppose I’ll let you all be the judge. I just want to be part of the SBG party!!
Since we’ve been back in NJ there has been a lot of “Let’s go to the diner,” and “Let’s call for delivery.” Not really a good idea either financially or in the area of health. We’re still dealing with refrigerator issues so that’s not helping me to have good foods on hand. I’m working around it and just have to focus and get both of us back on track.
I was on my own for dinner last night so I just dove in, using what I had on hand and it was delicious.
On the bottom was bulgur that I had cooked (Ha Ha) the night before to add to a salad. I sautéed onion and garlic. I added pinto beans previously cooked in the crock pot and frozen (Ha Ha) green beans. I added several different flavors of Mrs. Dash. I love Mrs. Dash and I’m getting into some of the more unique flavors along with the original. Topped it all off with some pecorino romano cheese. It was So good. I forgot how much I enjoy dishes like this. Quick and filling too!
I know that there are some people who would consider this odd, but hey, Strange But Good is why we’re here and this fills the bill. Now that we’re back in NJ (however reluctantly) I’m going to try to do more cooking because it just makes sense. Stand by for some experimentation. That way I won’t be at a loss for things to post on Friday!
