Most of the time, I don’t photograph every step of what I am cooking. Hard to believe. But the majority of my days are spent in getting home a little after dark, walking the fiend, and then trying to create dinner out of what’s left in my fridge. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes if it works, I remember enough about it to recreate it another time. Sometimes.
So I’m introducing Wingin’ It Wednesdays to you here. These are meals that I haven’t paid enough attention to, ones I couldn’t tell you what I did to make them. But they turned out okay, and usually they were a spur-of-the-moment concoction of the dregs of my pantry. They might help to inspire you when you’re looking for that middle-of-the-week meal at the last minute.
This dinner was Atlantic Salmon that I pulled out of my freezer (the Pie was out).
I had picked up some Israeli couscous from Auntie Crae’s back before it shut down, and I’d never tried it, so here was a good opportunity. After having tried it, I think I prefer regular couscous, though this would be good in a soup.
I also roasted a sweet potato and a buttercup (not butternut) squash with a little bit of olive oil.
What’s in your pantry/fridge/freezer that you’ve been meaning to try but haven’t?
