I have a few cookbooks, but I have to admit I don’t use recipes.
Unfortunately, we are pretty broke this week after a vacation a month after another vacation.
So good to use what we have.
Tonight I made red beans and rice and added a pound of frozen sausage I had. I wish I did use some oil though, a bunch stuck to the bottom of the pan. I thought the sausage grease would be enough. Here was the recipe from Robert Irvine of Dinner Impossible.
Tomorrow I am doing something even easier a 5 ingredient crock pot chicken with black beans and cream cheese recipe. Literally chicken breasts, corn, black beans, salsa and cream cheese. I am hoping the chicken isn’t too freezer burned. But, it will be wicked easy to make and cost only like $6 more dollars. I think I will make some more rice with it and use the rest of the chicken broth that I used with the rice today.
I think I need to do this more often to save money. And it is often a lot more interesting than a lot of restaurants. And it’s great to get rid of some of the stuff in your pantry.
Where do you like to hunt for recipes?
