Dinner from Mom's cupboard was awesome tonight. I boiled Linguine in chicken stock, added diced Ham, Cream, Tillamook Sharp Cheddar cheese, and Kusa also called Mediterranean squash. When I was satisfied with the thickness of the casserole I topped it off with bread crumbs mixed with garlic, basil and sun dried tomatoes. Sprayed the topping with vegetable oil and baked in a 375F oven for 15 minutes.
Mom's Cupboard had the the bottle of Basil and Sun-dried tomatoes, Vegetable spray. And Tillamook Cheddar in the fridge door. Dinners from Mom's Kitchen have that recently discovered eighth sense Uami. Sweet Sour Bitter, ... And now the tastes you remember from your childhood and other memorable past meals. Mom still buys the same staple ingredients and I have had a week of rediscovering those from my childhood. My Wife says," Her recipes are salty but Good."
To counter act the saltiness that we are not used to, I created a Fresh fruit salad using diced Watermelon, Strawberries, Green grapes, diced Orange, and Blueberries. I also mixed in Honey and grated Parmesan cheese. We ate dinner over an hour ago and I am still sneaking a taste of the salad.
Tomorrow with our house on the upside of repairs. My wife and I will return home and I will be creating great meals from our kitchen again.
