Desperate Recipe # 1

Sometimes, it's just really tough to pull a meal off in short order, and there's weird stuff in the fridge. I'm an experimenter, though, and sometimes, they turn out to taste pretty good. So here's a recipe invented last night. If you actually try it out, you're crazy:


  • A bunch of that light and dark green bean and carrot mix from Costco
  • A can of tuna
  • Frozen shredded nacho cheese
  • Sauces: ketchup, catalina/california dressing, thousand island dressing and Frank's Red Hot sauce

Start heating the oven to 350. Spread the green bean and carrot mix in an enamel or other baking dish fairly thinly. Crumble the can of tuna on top, except for the metal parts of the can. Squirt some of the sauces around on top of it. Scatter a decent but not too thick layer of frozen cheese on top.

Throw it in the oven for 15 minutes. Then, switch the oven to broil and cook until some of the cheese on top is starting to crust up.


Perhaps this will become a series of "what I did when our fridge was empty", perhaps not :)
