Two Minute Meal

by Kay~Kacey on 1/31/2008

Really, a meal in two minutes. And it’s good. Okay, if you’re looking for a five course meal, this isn’t it. But now that it’s usually just the two of us, we occasionally do fake meals. And I happen to really like this one.
nine triscuits and cheese
Okay, for some reason the males in the house give me all sorts of guff about 9 crackers. I always do nine crackers. It’s the right amount for me. The males in the house just dump out a bunch of Triscuits, willy nilly, onto a big old plate. Do what you want, but I think the nine crackers look much tidier! 😉

Make sure you use the original Triscuits. They make other flavors. Don’t go there. You want originals. Trust me. Add another topping of choice if you want. (I like plain cheese ones too). This is sausage. I use leftover chicken, or sausage, or ham, or whatever we have wasting away in the fridge.
45 seconds in microwavePop in microwave for 45 seconds until cheese is bubbly. As a total aside, see those those cute, and I mean totally adorable, antique butter dishes that I collect sitting on top of the microwave?
Two Minute Meal
There you have it. The two minute meal. Serve with your beverage of choice… :mrgreen:

Do you have any fake insanely clever meals that you make?

This looks like a good Super Bowl dish, too! Is there another ingredient there, besides the cheese and Triscuits?

Hey, that looks good. I’ll take some wine, too…. 😀

Amy! Good catch. I changed that to add in a meat topping if you like.

Suzanne, okay, I’ll share with you.

Maybe not insanely clever, but very, very healthy.

I got this recipe from my mom. You buy a bag of that broccoli slaw – which is just broccoli, cabbage, and carrots – put half a bag in a pan, add a cup of pinto beans or any other kind (like kidney, Great Northern) and then a can of chicken (or you can use fresh chicken). Stir fry for a few minutes, add seasoning (I like to use garlic) and you have a delicious meal in minutes.

MMMM> I take peanut balls with me everywhere as survival food. Mix peanut butter, a little honey, oatmeal, and chocolate chips, roll in sesame seeds and you have a perfect high protein sweet pick me up.

Oh, that looks really yummy!!!

Love the antique butter dishes! We have antique (or just old) candy dishes. I use one in my bathroom for cotton balls.

Yummy. Wine and cheese are my two favorite food groups.

Thats a good idea I’ve never used triscuits before, I’ve used pita bread, its somewhat floppy but works!

Kate January 31, 2008 at 9:06 pm

It looks so yummy paired with a nice bottle of wine!

Kacey February 1, 2008 at 8:44 am

Melissa and Colleen, those are both good sounding quick recipes!

Tori, aren’t those antique butter dishes adorable??

Kathleen, hm, pita bread. That would work too!

Kate and MPM…really, what’s not to love about wine and cheese?

I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve got many fake… I mean clever meals – that’s because I lack in cooking experience 🙁 Some farmer’s wife I am LOL

Graduated from Mizzou??? What a coincidence. We moved to Missouri in June. I’m still adjusting, but love it here.

So – when are we going on that photo shoot? I’m afraid we won’t see any animals though, there will be way too much talking and giggling for any animals to stick around hehe

Minus the meat, we do this all the time, too. MAJOR AND EASY YUM!!!

Thanks for the great idea. I can’t up with a single quick idea, but I am definitely going to try the coleslaw – chicken idea.

Speaking of wine, I usually have my evening glass of wine in the hot tub. It is wonderfully relaxing and a great way to end the day.
