Last week Michael over at Pleasing My Palate wrote a blog post about managing quick meals and some of his favorite ideas to get dinner on the table lickety-split. I have not blogged in a week due to 'life' taking over more of my time than I had planned for...and I am still pressed for time, but don't want to completely lose by bloggiing mojo. So I thought I would do a post about a meal I made a couple of months ago when hubby said, "We have nothing in the house to eat for dinner."
When I hear those words, I am always up for the challenge and can usually come up with something quite tasty. I will admit I have had a couple of real losers over the past 23 years, but for the most part I can get something quite edible on the table most nights. On that particular night I had a left over roasted chicken with plenty of meat still on the bones, some really good cheddar cheese, fresh spinach and Bisquick. Now before you go screaming about packaged foods not being vintage....
At least I did not use SPAM!!
Salad dressing prepared in a vintage Good Season Container that came with our house.
I made a rue with butter and flour and then added some fresh chicken stock, mushrooms and plenty of fresh thyme. Added the shredded chicken and then topped it off with biscuits with cheddar cheese.
And there you have it dinner in a flash. It took about a half hour to make and then another half hour to bake. Not bad though for dinner on the fly with 'nothing to eat in the house'.
