Tomato and carrot sauce

Plain tomato sauce can be boring but amp it up with same veggies and it really is an improvement.

This sauce started out with sauteed onions, then some diced carrots added, cooked till soft.

A link of sausage, casing removed, added and cooked, finally, a can (14 oz) of diced tomatoes and half a can (or less) of tomato soup (Cambell’s), undiluted. Simmer and season.

brocolli baked stuffed tortillas

Basically a broccoli pie but instead of a typical yeast dough, just  flour , (with a bit of bacon fat rubbed in), and water with pinch of salt. similar to a pie crust.  I started with about a cup of flour.

roll out the dough into separate circles.

IMG_5469Make a mixture of broccoli, (diced) onion, garlic, etc.(stir fry quick),cool, then add some shredded mozzarella too !

Sausage would also be a excellent addition.

IMG_5471Spoon the mixture into the circles

Carefully, fold over the dough to meet edges, tuck and form into balls, then flatten slightly on  lined sheet pan.

Bake till crispy.

IMG_5474similar to a broccoli pie, but thinner dough and more of a crunch.

HERE’S THE BEEF

Recent shopping at the warehouse club, sirloin beef was purchased. (sirloin tip roast @ $4.58/ lb)

Prepared for the freezer, some ground for hamburgers, some sliced for stir fry etc. and some cubed for a stew type recipe.

I find it easier to grind and cut the beef than to buy separate, ground beef and stew meat portions.

Garden update

The weather , very cool this morning and an effort to get out of bed early was successful. Did some gardening work weeding around the tomato pepper and eggplants. Some spent grain that was stored from previous beer brewing was used as mulch.

Chicken with garlic and oregano sauce

Now that fresh oregano is available from the garden, it would compliment some thin sliced chicken breast, coated in seasoned flour and fried in a minimal amount of oil. (Thin sliced fish fillets could also be used)
Bacon greased was used sparingly , first to sauté the garlic and oregano with some butter. A bit of flour was added, not to make a thick sauce just to give it some flavor and body, cooked till the floury taste subsides.
After the chicken breast are finished , the sauce was strained , and poured over the plated chicken. Garlic crisps can be used as garnish.

Sliced potatoes quickly cooked in the fry pan and served with chopped chives served as a side.
