Sometimes I look in my refrigerator and think “what on earth can I make with all this stuff I need to use up?” Then I do some searches on the internets and whip something up. I usually adjust the recipe based on whatever I have because I HATE going to the store for one item. They aren’t always great but sometimes, I find some instant faves. Here are a few of my recent successes. Have you found any favorite recipes this way?
Crispy Brussels Sprout Panzanella Salad - Brussels Sprouts are a favorite in our house but I’m always looking for new dishes to cook with them. I used mozzarella instead of goat cheese. We ate this on its own as a meal one night and I served it as a side with ribs another night.
Salmon Kebabs - This would make a great summer meal. The recipe says to grilled these but I just baked them and they were great as a fall meal too.
I served a Squash Wild Rice dish as a side with the salmon that was kind of a combo of this recipe and this one. Both sound great on their own, but like I said I like to improvise with the ingredients I have on hand. These could make good last minute Thanksgiving side dishes too.
Nutella Rice Crispy Treats These are sooo good and ridiculously easy. I skipped the pecan on top and made these with my little. We both loved them.
