We commonly call tonight’s stew as the slop
It is not pretty, it is always better the next day
Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad
And sometimes I don’t know why
Tuesday, February 26th (A Good Slop)
Always start with an onion
Usually I add the tough part of the vegetables (stems and stalks) but didn’t have any
I added the remainder of Frozen Chicken Breast (large pieces, cooked, boned skinned)
Added a potato that was going bad (but prefer a sweet potato or rutabega)
Added Quinoa and Amaranth (I usually add a variety of lentils, barley and farro)
Added water to cover when things begin to stick to the bottom of the pan
(although I usually use homemade chicken stock which I am so proud of)
When everything was cooked through I added a packaged frozen cooked seafood assortment and frozen peas and corn
And as usual I added Za’atar, a packaged seasoning of roasted wheat, roasted thyme, ground sumac, sesame seeds and salt (sprinkled liberal over the top)
And it was a good slop. I enjoyed the chicken (even though I was just chicken breast) the potatoes and corn. I could feel the texture of the seafood.
Overall, it as a good slop.
