Today everyone in the house is feeling like poo. So, I thought I would take the easy way out, on the cooking side of things. I used smoked pork leftovers, American cheese, bread, mayo, butter from KFC, parmesan packets from last nights pizza. You know what I have now? Yep. grilled pork and cheese sandwiches. I will be serving that with Campbell’s chicken soup. Everyone says that chicken soup will help a cold. So there you go. If you are counting that’s 4 sandwiches = 4 packs of parmesan and 8 packs of butter. I keep these for those times when I forget to get some at the store, it has saved me many a time. If you save your packets you know that they can take over your refrigerator. So, from time to time use some or throw some of the old ones away.
I worked for a man and he had so much money it was scary. One day we were getting lunch and he asked for mustard packets and it wasn’t a meal you would normally eat mustard on. I ask him why he did that? He told me he would put his extras in the bottles in his refrigerator. I’m sure I looked puzzled. He offered this advise, “watch your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves”. He was a smart man.
Now let me tell you about the clear plates. I like to change things up every now and again. What better way yo do without all the cost. I simply change the linen’s. I’ll add a blue table-cloth with a bright yellow place setting and grey napkins. Then when that gets old I’ll change something or all of it. After a while you will have many colors to choose from without having to replace you dishes.
Now for that crafty person and you know who you are. Here is that opportunity to make what you like. Maybe its floral or chickens. Make it your own.
If you have the time home-made chicken soup is great but if you don’t Campbell’s is a good choice. You can always add extras to your soup like cheese, chives, spices, crushed red peppers, just add what you like.
Stay well and I’ll talk to you soon.
