Tomato mushroom ragout with pasta and brocolli 

It’s not often that I utilized boxed pasta since I really enjoy the taste of fresh pasta, but for the sake of convenience tonight, some fresh diced tomatoes, simmered with sliced mushrooms, garlic and reduced with mead. Add brocolli to the boiling water with the pasta as a base for the ragout. Simply served , got a have those veggies !

Happy 2017 cooking, post holiday meal.

a real light breakfast

The bacon was frozen, so chicken breast was available along with some previously chopped greens. Good Morning !

Fried egg.

Medium roast blend of Mexican Organic Chiapas Altura and Colombian Reserva del Patron coffee.



Modified take out

there’s always seems to be containers of take out food in the fridge, some unwanted to pass to other family members. 

Here the traditional chicken and broccoli containerized take out dressed up for a meal. 

Start with a additional of a sweet and sour sauce, ketchup, vinegar and,  some pineapple rescued from the fridge that I previously stored from a fresh pineapple, white sugar and brown sugar, a splash of soy sauce and of course a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes. Measuring,  by taste. 


The briccoli and chicken placed on a shallow pan with the addition of sliced porta bello mushroom, to reheat, placed under the broiler till the mushrooms were tender and the other contents reheated. 


The rice now at stage three, 15 minutes rest covered, as in the recipe for 5-10-15 rice. 5 minutes boil, 10 minutes covered simmer and 15 minutes rest, a foolproof recipe.  A standard white rice , double the amount of water to rice. Now done ! (Sometimes one would pass along a container of takeout white rice )


Final assembly.



Done !


Another casserole

Lately it seems to be easy to prepare a casserole and bake it. The weather is cold, but not really cold on this date so the oven warms the kitchen and provides an savoury aroma.

Pasta 1 lb
One 14 once can peeled tomato
One can tomato soup
Chopped garlic
Italian seasonings
Dried basil
Dried red pepper flakes to taste.
(No onion!)
Shredded Parmesan (packaged)
Grated Parmesan

Boil the pasta in water till1/2 done.
Toss in broccoli to the pasta, and cook for several more minutes.
Drain pasta and broccoli , add the rest of the ingredients , less cheese.
Turn into and baking dish, top with cheese, heat in a 350 oven till cheese is melted and pasta is cooked.
