Serendipity Cooking



It's my favorite kind of cooking...
Look in the refrigerator and see what needs using up!

Monday night I put a spaghetti squash in the microwave.
While that cooked, I grilled a pork tenderloin
and threw zucchini, onion, mushrooms and garlic
in a skillet with olive oil.
Then everything came together and was sprinkled
with shredded Parmesan, salt and pepper.

The Mister said to remember how I made it, because
he wants it again!  And I do, too!

    1. I've never made it with spaghetti sauce on it like a lot of people do. That doesn't appeal to me.
      I just serve it like a vegetable. It's really yummy with butter and parmasean on it!

    1. Well, since I've never had beans on toast, I can't really say! haha.
      Maybe it would be my favorite and I just don't know it! :)

  7. I know it tasted wonderful, but it looks like something in a cook book. What a nice combination...and the refrig cleaned out. Double good! I'm happy to be back in my kitchen.

  10. Good luck recreating the recipe :-) It might be close next time, but will never be EXACTLY the same.

    1. hmm...I don't know! I remember all the ingredients and their amounts! I'll give it a try, anyway....

    2. You obviously do a better job of documenting when you make up recipes than I do--I start adding a pinch of this and a dash of that but don't bother to write it down.

      Delete
    3. Well, there weren't a lot of pinches or lots of ingredients in this one, so I didn't write anything down. The only thing not seen in the photo is garlic, salt and pepper. If it had been a taste/add, taste/add kind of dish, that would be harder! haha.

  14. Use up what needs to be
    And never know what could come at your sea
    Something good or grand
    Easy peasy in your land

    1. At least you didn't choke and gag
      when I showed what food I had!
      Or if you did,
      your feelings you hid.
      Geesh, being polite?
      That must be some plight.
      Are you feeling ok?
      No insults at my bay?
      Maybe you'd like a plate.
      I bet you'd think it first rate.
      Might even asks for seconds
      as your taste buds beckon.
      lol.....

  15. It is great when you make something from what you have to hand isn't it. Yesterday I made all from the freezer chilli - meat, vegetables, chilli and garlic and then add a tin of beans and box of tomatoes and voila! Glad that your husband liked it so much that he wants it again! xx

    1. I kind of like the challenge! ha. And it really makes you realize how often we run to the grocery when we have food at home already! Your chili sounds yummy!

  16. Your new camera is making your delicious food look even MORE delicious and now I am hungry. I wish you lived closer, but the line to the kitchen would be really long!
