MEAT ‘n POTATOES PIZZA

MEAT ‘n POTATOES PIZZA

By now you likely know much I love leftovers.  Cooking once so we can eat two or three times just makes so much sense for us in my little galley.  Tonight I had extra portions of meatloaf and mashed potatoes with a few Brussels sprouts in the boat cooler. Captain had a hunger on for pizza so I threw together this next recipe using my now favourite grilled pizza rounds and every last leftover scrap. Meat and potatoes doesn’t usually…

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

With just one burner to cook our meals onboard I really have to pick and choose what will take centre stage in the galley.  It’s why I’m usually careful about leftovers and how those leftovers can be reborn for another time.  Tonight was one of those times for two cups of leftover mashed potatoes from our yummy Apple Sauce Meatloaf supper  to monopolize the space (recipe for meatloaf here). Depending on the size of muffin cups this recipe should give…

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

Captain Francois’ comment about tonight’s supper: “If this is vegetarian, you can make it for me anytime!”  Healthy, meatless and really easy to throw together, I made it stove-top in my Omnia Oven. A little sautéing, a splash of wine and some seasonings. The addition of some greens, then packed into a baking dish, topped with potatoes and in just a few minutes it was ready to enjoy.  Sprinkle with grated cheese and bread crumbs before baking if you wish…

SPICY SALMON BREAKFAST MUFFINS

Handheld breakfasts are a real bonus for  busy folks.  Especially important for she who mans the galley but would rather be out sailing.  Healthy, make ahead, this next recipe is perfect for a tasty on-the-go meal. I make them in the evening, clean up all the cooking mess, stash them away in the refrigerator so all we have to think about in the morning is making that first cup of coffee before heading out. They were perfect added to a car…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 17 and 18

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 17 and 18

Part of the ease in making this Whole30 regime work is keeping sequestered from outside challenges like dining out. Entertaining guests also adds a new dimension to our culinary journey. Old habits resurface, as when Captain François automatically reached for a slice of bread during a recent dinner party. The next few days may or may not be difficult as we welcome guests for the week. We’ll just have to wait and see. On the meal board for today… Breakfast Scrambled…

MASHED POTATO KALE CAKES with ROUILLE

MASHED POTATO KALE CAKES with ROUILLE

Let’s talk about leftovers. You know by now that I am a big fan of cooking once and eating twice. It just makes so much economical sense to me: Less fuel used Less planning Less work Fewer shopping trips to the market with fewer temptations Overall, less time taken. Leftovers may also be a nasty not-really-four-letter-word for some. !BORING! With a little imagination though I believe one can turn leftovers into some very creative meals. Look at what I did…

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

I’m on a leftover-mashed-potato kick this week and am realizing there are SO many ways to transform them for another meal so that they don’t really resemble their original state. Like a potato disguise. ….I pulled together my ingredients …hauled out my little boat waffle iron.       …and was very pleased with the results. …potatoes in disguise. WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT makes about 12 waffles   what you will need 2 cups mashed potatoes…

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

Every time I make shepherd’s pie it’s different. That’s the beauty of this dish. Sometimes I use ground up leftover roast beef and gravy, sometimes ground lamb. For our onboard, tiny galley life it’s easier when I use leftovers as I can make extra mashed potatoes one night and use them to top the pie the next night – economy of efforts. Today I decided to go all-out Irish and make the potato topping a mixture of mashed parsnips, potatoes…

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #8

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #8

This next recipe is a standard… classic comfort food… and, of course, an easy fix up for the simplest of galleys… My Mom made it using up leftovers from Sunday’s roast beef dinner. I in turn made it for my kids so my recipe usually included ‘hiding’ lots of veggies in the mix. The classic version uses mainly onions, garlic and sometimes corn. Regardless…add…subtract… the end result is pure tasty memories of childhood…. sometimes called Cottage PIe… sometimes – Shepherd’s…
