Some day I will have time to go grocery shopping. But until then, creativity must rule.
This morning, that meant figuring out what to do with two leftover grilled beef hot dogs (our fast and easy dinner last night so that we also had time to get to the pool down the street).
I considered wrapping them in whole-wheat tortillas with cheese, but that seemed dull. It also probably wouldn’t taste all that great cold.
Instead, I cut them up and tossed them in a hot skillet with a package of uncooked fresh cheese tortellini. Most people don’t realize you can cook fresh pasta this way. But it’s an easy, delicious and speedy way. It also gives the pasta a nice crispy texture you obviously don’t get with boiling.
The result was pretty delicious. Made me think it could also make a great dinner, perhaps with turkey sausage or chorizo instead of hot dogs, and maybe a bit of extra cheese sprinkled over it. You could even add some veggies and have a one-pot meal in about 10 minutes.
But who cares about that! What really matters… the mohawk!
So here it is — before and after. He’s still loving it. Enjoy your weekend!
