Swabian Noodles and rice.  :eat::eat: "Doubly Good".

Noodles and rice? 

I had leftover potato pie for breakfast. Still good.

And coffee with milk - always coffee with milk.

And rice with ketchup after that.

It's good to be a not picky eater I suppose. ( :fever: )

I'm not generally a fan of ketchup. My daughter was eating chicken pot pie and some fries with ketchup. A little ketchup got onto the chicken. She "mmmm"ed and offered me a taste. Believe it or not, ketchup actually tasted good on chicken pot pie.

l do hope it was halal chicken.  :grin:  Made it yourself?

l am not a picky eater. Reason. My mom. We -sister and l- were telling a cousin about Mom's terrible cooking. l made some comment about Allah-s.w.t. punishing her for how bad it was. Our cousin said, "You cannot go to Hell for being a bad cook." And simultaneously we said, "Mom can!"  Something really has to be bad for me not to eat it. Like unsanitary, undercooked, and so forth.

Ketchup goes on about anything. lt is only spiced tomatoes.

Of course! When you have a large family, packaged prepared foods are neither economical nor convenient. This was 2 lbs dark meat chicken, skinned and deboned, one large sweet onion, three cloves garlic, one cube vegetable bouillon, some leftover shredded potatoes, one can of cream of mushroom condensed soup, simmered in the crock pot all day, a bit of cornstarch for thickening, topped with slightly overwatered biscuit recipe from Mark Bitman's How to Cook Anything: The Basics with a small amount of shredded cheddar mixed into the batter, baked at 375 until golden and crisp on top. 

But her fries came frozen in an 8 pound bag from the local warehouse store, and the ketchup was store bought.

Anything ketchup goes on, BBQ sauce or salsa goes better. The only condiment less interesting than ketchup is mayonnaise. Sure, you can put it on anything, but why would you?

Made these for dinner with egg fried rice . While my son jumps excitedly every time he sees me making these, my daughter thinks I am being oppressive by making her finish her portion.

Peanut butter and bread, piece of chocolate and coffee.

That sounds good.

I made vegetable turkey noodle soup and fresh baked oat bread. It was delicious and everyone ate and enjoyed it - which is unusual because usually my people won't eat soup.

The best soup l ever have or have had is made by my little sister.  :eat: "slurp"

A couple of hours ago, instead of eating candy, l made a fish sandwich.

Coffee with milk, same as always, and a piece of my oat bread (previously mentioned) with butter. I don't like a sweet breakfast, but simple is fine. 

Tonight's supper is supposed to be "deluxe baked potato" but I only have two potatoes. I can either shop for groceries, or make another plan.

I love it when kids leave food, great excuse to have theirs.

When we stopped for chai on a roadside truck restaurant...

Pakistani idea of a roadside truck restaurant seems far upmarket compared to everywhere else.

Yarrabi.

l have had "the munchies" all night.

Double Cheeseburger with a large bowl of potatoes.

Then a candy bar.

Then a nap.

Then a double bologna sandwich with cheese.

Another candy bar.

Handfuls of dry cereal.

Half a bar of cheese.

A vitamin pill --because maybe my decrepit body needs a mineral or something.

And now, tea.

Oh well,  :eat: bon appetizer

I will have spaghetti and noodles for breakfast.   :eat:

Well, it is not Xmas candy.

Truthfully, l do not know why l get lumpy spaghetti.

Maybe 'clumps' is a more accurate word.

l put cheese on top with sauce and beans.

While it was cooking, it looked a lot like this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0XMvzeqWoM 

Some of those 'plops' came up an inch or more.

Could you please post recipes with some of these dishes.  

It's not a long recipe. Just put some olive oil in the bottom of a pot. Break-up the spaghetti. Add some egg noodle, too. Dump in half a can of beans. Dump in some basil and pepper with a dash of sodium chloride. Slices of cheese. Add hot water out of the tap --it is already heated. Place on stove top. Bring to a boil with the lid on. Take the lid off to let the steam out and to prevent boil-bubble over. Repeat as necessary and continue with the heat turned off. Take lid off for last time. Go do something else --like SC. Then go back and most of your concoction is ready-to-eat in about half an hour.  Use a separate bowl if desired. When finished, set pot in sink, add some cold water and soap and let sit until needed again.

The other day I made some chicken with green beans and cranberries. I thought I was going to have the leftover of that for lunch, but someone had eaten all the chicken and left the vegetables, so instead I had a green beans and cranberries sandwich on garlic bread. It actually was quite good. Highly recommend. 

I've got BBQ beans and cornbread planned for supper. A side salad would be nice, but that would require going out into the cold, so most likely we will go without.

You know, after spending five hour a day cooking for the last two weeks, i've realised recipes are only a guide and that actually, experience and improvising based ones experience and judgement yields better results and is more practical sometimes as we may never have the same exact ingredients , time etc.

I do look at recipes when I'm cooking something totally new, but it's more fun to cook freehand.

Beans and cornbread also makes an excellent breakfast. 

Tonight's supper is planned to be eggs and potatoes. I'll probably pick up a couple tomatoes to go with, and maybe I'll bake a quick bread if I have time. There won't be any leftovers.

Tonight's supper is planned to be eggs and potatoes. I'll probably pick up a couple tomatoes to go with, l hope you are aware this doesn't mean "stems and pieces" like with mushrooms --or the leaves...

 and maybe I'll bake a quick bread if I have time. Buying it iz even quicker --and safer.

 There won't be any leftovers. How about "startovers" ?

l surmise you are within view of being the gastronomical disaster my mother was.
