Evolution of Monday Night’s Dinner
From Sweetnicks’ Mom
Stand in front of open fridge door at dinner time. Take out leftover take-out dinner from the weekend. It was grilled shrimp with linguine. Enough linguine there – just need to add some shrimp since only 2 are left.
Get shrimp from freezer: discover that they were already used. See package of Perdue chicken cuts that I was going to make chicken salad with but was too lazy.
Spy a package of mushrooms that really should be used and 4 tomatoes that are really ripe. Chop mushrooms and tomatoes and saute in some olive oil. Add some leftover chopped garlic, the chicken – and wait – there is a package of gorgonzola crumbles that I bought for a recipe and now I can’t remember what recipe they were for. Add some of those. Finally toss in the linguine with whatever sauce it has left and don’t forget the two sorry shrimp. Heat for a short time and serve.
It was actually really good!
