Monday night dinner..
DH and I left the Y at 6:30 p.m. The storm clouds were looming and the wind was picking up. It wasn't supposed to be THIS dark in August. We checked the weather radio station on our 2 meter (ham radio). Sure enough--tornado warning. "Rotation spotted". We quickly called home and made storm preparations. In the meantime, I was planning to make some sort of soup for dinner, but I knew I'd be fighting power outages.
I quickly threw these ingredients in the pot and tried to come up with a fast dinner.
Browned: 1 package of taco flavored turkey sausage with an onion
Added: fresh corn cut off the cob, red pepper diced
Added leftover (already cooked): brown rice, kidney beans
Added: canned: tomatoes and green chili mix (Rotel) + tomato sauce + chicken broth + water+ salt
Heat thoroughly. Served with cheese and sour cream.
A hit. Would be good with tortilla chips, if we had them.
