3 dishes, 1 rotisserie chicken

Honey bourbon-glazed thigh with buttered corn

when i first started living on my own, i cooked as if i was still under my parents’ roof — i cooked for a family. so i always ended up with two week’s worth of asado or spaghetti. as you can imagine, i got tired of eating the same damn thing very quickly. it took a while before i began learning to cook just for myself — and maybe just one other person 😉 now my mom laughs when i tell her i bought a family pack of chicken wings or ribs from stop & shop and made three dishes out of it.

this week, i got a rotisserie chicken from the store. i hacked off the thighs and the wings and had those with mixed vegetables. i set aside one breast for chicken salad. the remaining breast i used as topping for my penne pasta in vodka sauce.

    i'm assuming the vodka-laced penne pasta was the yummiest, as you forgot to take a picture before eating it. that, or you put in too much vodka on the sauce 😛 that sandwich looks good 🙂

    ha.ha. like you, i learned to be more creative in spreading out my food budget by making multiple meals out of a few ingredients. for example, the spaghetti meat sauce base which i made for a week became, apart from pasta sauce, pisto (pampango scrambled eggs) for breakfast, dippings for chips/tacos, sweet and sour meatballs, and stove-top pizza topping 🙂

    each time i remembered to take a photo of the pasta, i was almost done and it no longer looked as appetizing. but you're right, the penne pasta in vodka sauce was really yummy. i got a fail-safe recipe from rachael ray 😉
