Last night, there was more emergency cooking to be done.
Except, it was more like desperation cooking.
I didn’t want to order in since I’m doomed to a diet of hotel food the next two days, and I didn’t want to leave my house, because it was cold, really.
I know, I’m going to have to get used to it.
Ky came down with a cold, so I was riding solo for the night, with the following ingredients:
sweet potatoes, herbs, one onion, and some random cheeses.
Not too impressive.
It was then that I remembered that I had an entire case (purchased from Costco, of course) of this:
So I turned up the oven to 425, threw in two sweet potatoes, and then did some yoga, Jillian Michaels style.
When I finished my last sun salutation, I headed back into the kitchen, where I boiled water for the mac and cheese, and then chopped up some sage from my deck garden and sliced my last onion.
At this point, I pulled the sweet potatoes out of the oven, scooped the insides out into a pot, and added the cheese packets, some milk, some sour cream, and then took my new immersion blender to the whole thing.
Not too shabby, if I don’t say so myself. And while I felt more Sandra Lee’s semi-homemade than Julia Childs, this is the way the end of the pantry shakes out in this house, and it was pretty delicious.
Now, I’m off to ready myself for tomorrow’s trip to Orlando- have a lovely Friday chickens!
