Yes Randy, microwave ovens are indeed great for reheating leftovers! My microwave get 10 times the use of my range. I even cook some things in it at times. Potatoes and other veggies do very well.
Yeah, my freezer never seems to empty out, and it's 15 cubic feet. I actually made lasagna about 10 days ago and used ricotta added to my cottage cheese.
Spud, aren't microwaves great for reheating leftovers?!
Thanks Qiana. I keep forgetting the freeze method. Probably because my freezer in the refrigerator is small and my chest freezer if broken.
Randy, I'm alone also, but have not been cutting back on recipes, In fact to save money and time, I make huge amounts.
But just yesterday I decided to cut back to much smaller proportions because it takes me so long to eat a large pot of something, that I have to reheat it a couple of times to be sure some pathogen doesn't have time to reproduce to harmful amounts. That reduces the flavor quite a bit.
I bought some ricotta cheese a couple of weeks ago after reading a recipe that called for some. I finally got around to making a "pasta gratin" with egg noodles, squash (actually, pumpkin by accident), spinach, and cheeses (ricotta, parmesan, mozz.). Cooking for only one, I have to cut recipe amounts way back, unless I want to eat "the fixins" for a week. I have to sort of guess at the fractions. The gratin turned out great with a little leftover.
And Daniel, being "unconventional" is the only way to go. After all, aren't we atheists unconventional?
Best Gifts for Cooks From Consumer Reports' Tests:
Daniel, how'd the sweet potato soup turn out? I made another pot, and loved it. I could do w/o the coriander, however. Funny that I love cilantro leaves, but not the seeds.
Disappointed there was no pecan pie at the Thanksgiving dinner I attended, I made one the next day. Gotta make some banana bread today.
Daniel, here's my recipe for sweet potato soup. On some spices, no precise amount--add to taste.
I microwave a large sweet potato (can be boiled in broth mix).
--cook small onion and garlic in oil (I use coconut) 5'. Add ground red pepper, cumin, coriander.
--Add 2 cups (maybe more) vegetable or chicken broth (I use cubes), one diced tomato, pepper (broth cubes add salt).
--Add mashed cooked sweet potato and 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter.
--Puree the whole thing and reheat (immersion blender)
--Add 1Tbsp lemon juice
--Top with cilantro and banana pepper pieces (opt).
Easy and delicious.
With a cold weekend forecast, soup sounds good. I made a sweet potato/peanut butter soup a month ago that knocked my socks off. May have to fix it again. Or a vegetable medley.
