My MyLot friends know that I am the world's master of generating fine cuisine from things that are either frozen or come in a can or bottle. Today, I made a salad from items purchased at Trader Joe's and Safeway, and it was delicious. The basic ingredient was canned corn. On top of that, I spilled some canned mandarin oranges. This was overlaid with some fine canned tuna. I then added some slices of canned hearts of palm, as well as some small pieces of half-eaten (sliced) granny smith apple. All of this was bathed in bottled Marie's blue cheese dressing from Safeway. It really WAS delicious! What did you have for lunch today? Did you make it yourself?

Yesterday I made maccheroni (they are similar to penne, but bigger) with a mustard and cheese sauce.

Sounds good! What kind of mustard did you use? Here in the US, "macaroni" are like little pasta tubes. Is that what yours look like?

@TheHorse In fact I said "maccheroni", they are not little pasta tubes. I use the hot Maille mustard or the French Amora when friends bring me a pot from France. I am posting a photo of maccheroni.

@LadyDuck They look similar to what we call "macaroni," but with larger openings. I'd have to taste the mustard to say whether it works for me. Dijon Grey Poupon is my favorite that nous avon ici (did I say that right?).

All canned goods plus half-eaten apples? Sounds like my kind of meal.

Lunch was brown rice with a vegie patty and some artichoke tapenade that is oily tasty. Prunes on the side for their sweetness.

I used to be a demo person at Trader Joe's. Generating cuisine from things that were frozen or came in a can or bottle was literally my job. I had a serving of leftover beef stew that I pulled out of the freezer.

Oh, I gobble up those samples once in awhile. How was the stew? Sounds good right Now, as it's 30 degrees F out (chilly for our neck of the woods).

@TheHorse It was pretty good. I wish I had a whole dinner's worth in the freezer instead of just one serving, but that's what I get for not making twice the amount in the first place.

Sounds delicious! I have baby creamer potatoes with some chili on top. I wanted something unhealthy but didn't want to over due it.

Well I had a vegetable of Capsicum and Potatoes along with chapatis(Indian wheat flour breads). No I did not make it myself. I cook very less but can make good tea, and can make a few vegetables, just alright for eating.

I had leftover baked pork chops and roasted potatoes. Yes, I did cook them from scratch myself and they were delicious with some applesauce. I do like the interesting salad that you made, what is not to like about blue cheese dressing? lol

Pork chops and potatoes sound good. And oh yes, some good tasting things can be made with mundane ingredients.

Salmon salad - carrot, beetroot, onion, celery, capsicum, cucumber, tomato, half a torn-up nori sheet, bamboo shoots (canned) and of course salmon (also canned) with a dressing made from yoghurt, olive oil, ginger, garlic, tumeric and black pepper. Yummo!

I love salads and just adding all kinds things into it. I had the last of the left overs and tomorrow I am on my own as to what to eat tomorrow.

Corn, oranges, Apple, Palm, tuna, and blue cheese dressing. Certainly not a combination that I would have thought of. Glad you enjoyed it.

Hersey`s chocolate bar with Almonds. Nope did not cook it My new eating plan is to eat when I am hungry, if I am working or on the road have that snack and keep going. Today I worked as caregiver ( his treatment an hour away) So I have a slice of pizza for breakfast, candy for lunch,Next job was at the rental so while getting material together I had 10 chicken nuggets around 6 pm, and a veggie salad at home around 10 pm. I stayed full all day.
