Call me the “wing it” cook. I don’t follow recipe books, nor do I watch cooking shows to learn. One day I probably will (and should) do the aforementioned in order to get a true understanding of seasonings and various cooking methods in order to take my healthy food preparation to a whole new level.
The other night for dinner I didn’t feel like cooking one of my standard 3-course meals (fish/meat/chicken; sweet potato/rice; vegetables). So I opened up the freezer and refrigerator and winged it by just grabbing some “stuff”.
Honey Grain Bagel – untoasted
Turkey (I cook whole turkeys and freeze the meat)
Sprinkling of the Hormel real bacon bits
- Fresh basil from the garden (I take no credit – my wife does 100% of the vegetable and herb garden)
For the spreads – Tzatziki (mayo replacement), garlic hummus, spicy mustard
- Side of steamed asparagus topped with parmesan cheese
You end up with some unique tastes when you just whip things together without over thinking the preparation process.
Give it a try – be creative.
