I have been so inspired by the food from the many blogs, and this looked so European, that I thought it deserved a fancy name! I just made it up, though, so any corrections would be gratefully received!
I wasn’t sure what I was going to make when I started out, but while reworking and reheating pizza from the other day for my husband, I started a more “girly” dish for myself.
The omelette has Italian herbs and half and half coffee creamer in it. That is some of the mango tango salsa in front, with strawberries and orange bits scattered around.
In back is the fettuccine, which I heated up with some sun-dried tomato bits in oil and some leftover spinach from last night. The spinach had accompanied the fettuccine with Sauce Bolognese and crisped sourdough medallions for our dinner.
Including two eggs from cage-free, vegetarian-fed hens, the total cost of this plate of delicious food was probably less than USD1.00.
I love making up new combination and your looks really worth to try! And 1 $ for such meal is .. why are all the best things on the world so good but so inexpensive?
Sometimes I feel like it is the world’s best-kept secret. Simple foods can be so satisfying, as well as easy on the budget. We are not vegetarians, but small amounts of meat seems to be all that is necessary for protein needs. A bit of cheese and a sliced black olive on the omelet would not have gone amiss, but I was getting really hungry, and the food was cooling off! I hadn’t planned for a photo shoot, so was scrambling to get the plate prepared and the picture taken quickly.
Dorrie Anne, I’m sitting here in my back yard enjoying spring and discovered your blog and the WONDERFUL photos of nicely prepared food…not an RVer but I can dream..grabbing the spaghetti out of the cabinet as we speak..thanks! Andrea in AZ
That meal was not prepared in our RV, but would be suitable to do so. I am enjoying my backyard in Arizona, too. Are you anywhere near Sierra Vista?
I’m Glendale. Just retired and looking forward to enjoying my life to the fullest. Thanks for making food preparation look easy and your photos are super. Here’s to you!
It’s pretty easy if you keep things simple. I love to cook, as you can probably tell!
