Meat CSA

We took a break from the meat CSA for a little while.  It was longer than anticipated because I forgot when to order.

So this month's ten pound meat box is:

001

Two pounds ground beef
Two pounds hot sausage
A ham steak
Pork Chops
Pot Roast

I also got charcuterie.  Because it makes me happy.

002
Some bacon, some back bacon, guincale and smoked trout.

One and a half lasagnas

Whenever I make lasagna, I always have lasagna noodles leftover.  It is annoying in that there were not enough for another lasagna.  So I have always put the leftover noodles in a tub in the fridge so I would forget them and then throw away three days later.

I had an inspiration:

005
There are enough noodles for one and a HALF lasagna.

I would give you a recipe but I am just happy I am not throwing away those noodles.  I put spinach in the ricotta layer for the health benefits.

What do you do with one and a half lasagnas?  I put some in the freezer so yohboh could have them for lunch.

Fish Pie

I like to relax watching cooking shows.  Do you?  I find it utterly soporific to watch Nigella Lawson make food.  So I was drowsily watching some British person making something called a fish pie.
002
This morning, I realized we had quite a bit of leftover fish and shrimp from last night's dinner so I made fish pie.  Now to sell it to the kids I called it mashed potato pie.  And they ate it.  Yohboh was a little cautious about it but he ended up liking it as well.

I improvised with what I had, which is what a casserole is, improvised dinner.


Fish Pie
Layer in this order

3 cups leftover fish

1 pound frozen peas and carrots

white sauce about two cups with celery and nutmeg

5 hard boiled eggs sliced in an egg slicer

5 potatoes worth of mashed potatoes
