    Did you ever throw something together?

    Did you ever throw something together and it came out great?

    Simple:

    1- 10 oz fresh mushroom cut in halves
    1- medium onion sliced
    .5- blub of garlic minced
    1- tablespoon basil flakes
    1- 15 oz. can of potatoes. cut into 3rds.
    peanut oil

    on med heat sautee onions, mushrooms, garlic and basil in the peanut oil. When almost cooked put in the potatoes.

    Man that made a so-so steak taste pretty good.

    Hey you like your shrooms and onions like me, cooked almost all of the way down. Have to try adding the garlic to it, unfortunately the tatoes are not in my diet, dang it they are my favorite next to steak from the local butcher. What kind of shrooms do you use, I prefer criminis or baby bellas. Never tried in peanut oil I normally use reg olive oil extra virgin is a little bitter for shrooms but the peanut is probably a nice compliment with the garlic. NICE

    Oh yeah try this once. Soak the onion white, red (preferably) or vidalia in some lemon juice for a while before you saute it. It will break down some but it adds a little different kick to the taste. Be sure to dry the onion off before throwing it in the oil.

    Benn, you're probably at that place where it all comes together in your head first. That's a good trick especially if there is no recipe.

    I like making meals from "What you have". Kinda like the show "Chopped" on food tv. Get some ingredients and make a meal. Yea Jerry, I do that alot.

    That is how you know who grew up without the silver spoon in their mouth. If your cabinets contents are as limited as mine were you learn to make a meal out of next to nothing. Only one home and hungry you gotta do what you gotta do. Eggs, cheese, and what ever sounds like a meal.

    There is nothing like a pot of soup or a skillet of fried rice to clean out the "ice box"
