3 small packages of chicken meat
1 package of frozen corn kernels from our garden
a small amount of frozen peas from the store
Some potatoes that I had cut up and soaked for making French fries
Frozen green peppers from the garden
Here is all of that.
About 1/2 cup of "sun dried tomatoes" that I had put up in olive oil in the fridge last summer
1/4 cup butter
1 small onion, diced
1 pint of leftover homemade beef broth out of the fridge
About 1 Tablespoon of my preserved basil
1/2 teaspoon RealSalt
A few cranks of pepper
... and right before serving, I added 1/2 cup of sour cream (it has been languishing in the fridge since Christmas Day!) :-0 But it was still perfectly fine.
Here's what I did:
In a cast iron Dutch oven, I melted the butter and added the tomatoes, diced onion and diced green peppers and sauteed that until the onions were fairly tender.
Next, I added everything else except the salt, pepper and sour cream.
This, I brought to a boil, put on a lid and allowed it to simmer for about 20 minutes.
When everything was tender, I salted it to taste, added a little freshly ground black pepper and then stirred in the sour cream.
Then I ate some.
My husband ate some too. I have to say, this is not the BEST thing I've ever made, but it was satisfactory and a good method for using up those bits of food that might otherwise go to waste. The rest of it is in a big jar in the refrigerator. It will provide at least 2 more meals for us.
Please don't even try to copy my actual recipe. Just pay attention to the method and use up your own cache of leftover food!
