I would love to say that it’s writing that makes me have to make supper in a hurry, but it’s sometimes errands, sometimes email… sometimes Free Cell….

Anyway, I’ve had to knock something together in a hurry a couple of times this week, and these are what I made:

Pasta with “Cream” Sauce

  • angel hair pasta
  • onion
  • ham
  • chicken
  • bacon
  • mushrooms
  • butter
  • flour
  • milk
  • Parmesan

Melt the butter. Dice the onions, mushrooms and meat into the butter and fry until the meat and mushrooms are just done. Stir in flour and cook a couple of minutes. Meanwhile, bring some water to a boil. Put in the angel hair pasta. Add milk to the flour mixture and stir until thick and glossy. Drain the pasta and divide it into plates. Divide the sauce over the pasta, sprinkle with cheese.

Fish Plate for Grilling Machine

  • thin fillet of fish, like Tilapia
  • frozen Potatoes O’Brien
  • fresh green beans

Snap the ends off the green beans but leave them whole. Put them in a skillet with the frozen potatoes and cover. Cook until potatoes are done and green beans change color–they should still be crisp. Heat grilling machine and smear with butter. Sprinkle frozen fillet with seasonings and grill it for about 7-10 minutes or until flaky. Defrosted fillets will take less time. Can also be done in a skillet.
