A Watched Pot
...produces dinner. Raviolis with portobello mushroom filling, marinara with meatballs--dinner out of the fridge and freezer. The meatballs and ravioli were frozen, from Trader Joe's, and the marinara--also from TJ's--had been opened to make English-muffin pizzas. I like to simmer the meatballs in the sauce while the pasta is cooking. There's enough left for another meal, too.
Not only did this dinner taste good, but it helped make a little room in the freezer. Currently there is an inordinate amount of turkey broth in the freezer, most of it in smallish single-recipe size containers. I froze the leftover turkey, dressing, and even the mashed potatoes, too. When it's too good to toss, but too much to eat, what else is there to do? If winter ever comes to these parts, there may be some nights when a little soup, or a hot turkey sammich, will make a good meal!
