I've got "this" what can I make?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I don't feel real well.
I'm tired and sore.
My mind isn't wanting to generate any ideas.
Dinner is hours away but this is what I have, ideas if any, are appreciated.
Pulled chicken tenders from freezer they're defrosting.
Lot's of sage and basil and fresh tomatoes.
Heavy cream. All shapes of pastas.
New bottle of Greek olive oil.
Bacon already cooked and crumbed.
New York Times Bread.
I also have anything else one could think of between pantry and extra frig so don't have to use these but it's what I thought I'd list.
Thanks for helping me.

how'd it turn out?

it turned out perfectly as it was a slight bit under seasoned which my husband prefers. Although I knew the sauce was mild when serving it but just once I wanted to stop before going overboard and just let the flavor and sublties be the star. Delicious and warming

Pork chops/sweet potatoes/apples/scallions/cabbage

So what do I do with them? Making corn muffins for the bread.

Don't know if this is of interest or not but I started this thread so anyone could chime in about what they have on hand and what you'd do with same ingredients. Just a different spin on what I'm already thinking of doing but your idea may be way better.

Make a slaw with the cabbage, scallions and apple. Sweet potato mash (spice it up with what you like). Simple fried pork chops, creamy gravy if you've got cream.

Or a stir fry. Trim and thinly slice the pork, peel, core and thinly slice the apple. Shred the cabbage. Marinate the pork in a little soy and oil and pepper mixed with a little cornstarch for 10 minutes. Heat up a wok/ frypan, add oil, sear off the pork till it just changes colour. Remove and keep warm. Little more oil in the pan, toss the cabbage and apple till a little soft but still crispy, add pork back in, mix till reheated. Add in spices such as ground ginger and chilli powder if wanted, and a little chicken stock to make a sauce. Thinly slice scallions, toss into mix briefly, serve.

sounds like something I'll be trying in the future, as dinner was made.
very easy, nothing fancy, just straight food and a hungry man.
