So Tired, SO thirsty, now it's dinnertime..Uuuggh!
And here it is...another weekday night, another delectable dinner to come up with. Well I'm tired and SOOO thirsty!! Too tired to stop at the store so I must rely on what I already have right here at home. But first and most importantly...WINE! Aaahhh, that's better! Now, back to dinner! Checking out the freezer, there is always bags of frozen s!#t that I have to defrost before I even realize what the hell it is but oh the magnificent wonders I have concocted with so little & in no time at all. This frozen brick turns out to be leftover Thanksgiving turkey, okay...I got this! I always keep plenty of assorted types of soups, spices and sauce / gravy envelopes on hand just for these situations. It's casserole night!!! (oh my gracious, I'm so amazing :) Time to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees (as usual) and boil me an 8oz bag of egg noodles which seems to be the only noodles I have on hand. I just can't get over how parched I seem to be this evening,,,MORE WINE! Okay, so to bring the cooked turkey and noodles together let's use mushroom soup and milk. Damn, I have no milk and one can of mushroom soup...CRAP!! I can do this! I do have a few different kinds of soups but the only one I can think that would be best with this gourmet meal must be the cream of onion. So I just smear a glob of butter around the inside bottom and sides of my 10 x 10 casserole dish, pour the hot , drained egg noodles into the casserole dish with the defrosted turkey pieces. Mix the can of mushroom and cream of onion soups in with the noodles and turkey with a little salt & pepper to taste, stir in globs of room temp. margarine (or butter if your fancy) about a quarter cup should do. Spread turkey noodle mixture even in the dish and just for the hell of it, sprinkle some bread crumbs over the top of the whole thing, I only have Italian seasoned on hand so that's what they get! Drink some more, dot the top with chunks of margarine (or butter) and shove it in the oven un-covered. Have another glass of wine, let it cook for 20 to 25 mins and DERN TASTY!!!
