Cold weather and rain doesn’t seem to let go of Central Pennsylvania and here we are, on May 15, 2016, I turned the heat on again!
We are expecting 38 degrees tonight…
Perfect weather for a HOT meal, so… Let’s see what could we put together.
The contents of our refrigerator, tells a lot about ITS owner. WHAT does mine say?
A couple of English muffins, some slices of smoked turkey and bacon from Sharp Shopper, a favorite local grocery store, some Pravelone cheese and an orange. The bread is not fresh but that’s no problem, here’s how to solve the it: sprinkle water on the bread, then a few drops of oil of your choice. I use olive oil which I flavored with fresh, chopped garlic.
On top of the prepared bread, place the smoked turkey, layer of cooked bacon and the cheese.
Bake everything for 10-15 minutes until done. WHAT does “done” mean? Since all the ingredients are already cooked, done means not burned or under cooked, or the bread will be soggy instead of crunchy and delicious.
Presentation makes food taste better and I was lucky to have an orange in my refrigerator, but the lettuce leaves were the real surprise of this improvized lunch:
A few days ago, I noticed lettuce growing in the back yard, in the middle of the lawn:)
It probably reseeded itself last year… It doesn’t matter much, except that I uprooted it and planted where it belongs but saved a few leaves for this weekend’s lunch.
That’s it for today!
WHAT does this say about me? For sure I continue to believe bacon makes everything taste better!
Please share what’s in your refrigerator?
