    Stove top chicken Ramen Casserole

    2 packages Chicken flavored Top Ramen
    1 pint chicken stock
    1 14oz can Cream of Mushroom soup
    3/4 pound chicken meat
    14oz can sweet corn
    Shredded cheese of your choiice (enough to cover casserole)
    1 1/2 teaspoon Poultry seasoning
    1 tsp rosemary
    1/2 tsp Thyme
    salt and pepper to taste.

    Break up the ramen noodles and add all the noodles, and one of the flavor packets, to the pot. Drain the sweet corn, add it to pot. Cut up chicken into bite size pieces (I used all dark meat chicken), add to pot. Add everything else but the cheese to the pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until noodles have cooked and sauce has reached desired consistency. Turn off heat, sprinkle shredded cheese to cover, and put lid back on pot. Give it approximately ten minutes and check it. Cheese should be melted over top. Serve. Would go well with a side of nice crisp asparagus or baby spinach salad with a good vinegar based dressing. Serve with a dry white wine, good bit of acid, to cut through the creaminess.

    Steak Burrito Casserole

    1 Cup Rice
    1 pound meat (I used round steak)
    1 can Tomato Soup
    1 can Rotel tomatoes with diced Chiles
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 can of beanns (I used homemade seasoned burrito beans)


    wash rice, put in 9x13 casserole dish. Add fluid from tomatoes to tomato soup, and if necesssary, add water to make 2 cups, add to casserole dish. Cook meat, garlic and onions with taco seasoning according to package instructions, and then add all to casserole dish. Add tomatoes and beans to casserole dish, mix it all together. Top with shredded cheese.

    Cover with foil, and cook for one hour at 350. Remove foil, and cook for another 15 minutes, or until fluid is absorbed and rice is tender.

    As soon as it cools down I'll let you know how it tastes. :) Can also add a bit of chili powder, cayenne pepper or paprika to taste (depending on whether you like taco seasoning way it is or if it needs more)


    OK, turned out pretty good, if I do say so mself. Actually, if I had some tortillas, would make for a great burrito filling itself.

    Beef Veggie Stew from leftovers

    Not exactly what i made today, as I used homeade stock and canned stew vegetables that I put up a few months ago, but regardless, great way to use leftover meat.

    2# cooked chuck roast
    1# bag mixed frozen vegetables
    32oz box/can of stock (I used Coq au Vin stock, but good luck on finding that, as I think it only exists in my pantry ;) )
    14oz can vegetable stock
    2 medium potatoes, cubed
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 cup red wine
    2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    Salt and pepper to taste (be sparing on the salt, as stock will likely provide enough as is).

    Throw it all in crock pot, cook until warmed through. Thicken with a bit of flour or corn starch, serve with crusty bread and red wine or a good dark beer.

    *sigh*

    have already challenged self. if only it were possible...if i ever do discover a raw equal to vanilla + milk, i should be proclaimed a raw saint forevermore...

    if i could do that, i bet i could work something out. but there are simply some fabulously yummy recreational cooked foods for which there will never, ever be raw equivs, no matter how much the raw foodies try to pretend, heh. layer cake is one of them.

    Actually making them for pros at studio, so they'll have to decide if it's any good. ;)

    Doing vegetarian stiir fry and these. Just trying to decide if I'm gonna do any rice/noodles/etc with it all. I generally bring in lunch and a desert.

    sorry for the mini-hijack....

    What's not raw about vanilla + milk? You just whip the bejeebus out of it, yes? No cooking involved there. Milk the cow/goat/mammal yourself if that makes it more legit.
