Another make-it-up-as-I-go dinner

Mr. Aitch and I had shrimp on the grill Saturday night and had some leftover.  Not enough for another meal but enough for something.

So I put on my thinking cap and came up with a version of Shrimp Alfredo using ingredients that I had on hand: low-fat cream cheese, Romano cheese, milk, garlic powder, red peppers, and egg noodles.  And of course, the shrimp seasoned with Old Bay.  We also had a fresh garden salad.

And wine.  Always wine.

I decided to write down the recipe after we tasted it.  Yummy!

 

Leftover turkey?

Tired of turkey?  But still have some leftover from your bountiful feast?

It’s OK to substitute turkey for chicken and I have two great recipes for you and a suggestion for another meal/snack to help use up the leftover fowl.

My chicken corn chowder is great and you don’t really have to measure the ingredients.  More leftover turkey?  Add it in.  Too much leftover corn?  No problem!  Click here for the recipe.

White Chicken Chili is another way to finish up the turkey.  This one can be as spicy or mild as you like and only has 5 ingredients.  My daughter came up with this recipe and won a chili cooking contest with it – though I claim it as my own.

The last suggestion is the famous Buffalo Chicken dip that’s been around for years!  You probably already have this in your recipe file but click here and it will take you to the one I use.
