Easy Shepherd's Pie

 


I already had majority of the ingredients for this on hand so decided to give it a try.

Here is a link to the original recipe I found https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/easy_shepherds_pie/.  I just made a couple changes according to what I had - substitute for Worcestershire sauce and chicken instead of beef broth.

Here's the link to the Worcestershire substitute recipe: https://www.acouplecooks.com/worcestershire-sauce-substitute/

It turned out delicious.  But I think I might add a little less better next time.

Scallion Oil Noodles

 

I had been seeing these scallion oil noodles on social media and had to try it since I had a ton of scallions from the onion harvest in my parents' garden.   This dish turned out super delicious.  I had several meals out of the one package of noodles.  I tried a variation with scrambled eggs, but it wasn't as good.  I think basically any type of protein would work great with this.  I just needed some kind of protein in there.

I've seen different variations of this dish online.  This is what I went with.

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart bag 3-inch pieces of scallions
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 bunch somen noodles
  • 1 egg
  • dash of sesame seeds (optional for garnish)

 Instructions:

  1. Heat olive oil in pan on low/medium heat.
  2. Add scallions to oil and flip over frequently to cook evenly.
  3. Boil water, cook noodles according to package directions, and drain.
  4. Fry egg
  5. When scallions are done, remove from oil and turn off heat.
  6. Add sugar, soy sauce and oyster sauce to oil and stir well.  This is your scallion oil.
  7. Add drained noodles to bowl.
  8. Add enough scallion oil to coat noodles and mix well.
  9. Top with fried scallions, fried egg, and sesame seeds.
  10. Enjoy!

Tuna Casserole with Veggies


The tuna was on sale - 10 cans for $10. Gotta take advantage of the sale!


I made this healthy tuna casserole but took some shortcuts by using frozen veggies and canned cream of mushroom soup. I also used bowtie pasta instead of egg noodles because I couldn’t find any and crumbled some ritz crackers over the top for some crunch.


Here is a link to the original recipe I found https://gardeninthekitchen.com/healthy-tuna-noodle-casserole/

Here is a link to the original recipe I found https://onolicioushawaii.com/portuguese-bean-soup/.

Fire Roasted Bell Pepper Toast

 

 
 
I went to Trader Joes and got a bunch of stuff. I wish we had that store here in Hawaii.  So anyway, a couple things I got were the fire roasted bell peppers and balsamic glaze.

The airfryer bread is a recipe I found on YouTube by Simple Recipes Kitchen.  I've tried a few different bread recipes, but this one is by far the easiest of all.  I make this one two to three times a week.  Here's the link to her recipe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nlopgwNCkw

Ingredients:
  • Bread (buy or make your own bread)

  1. Toast your bread
  2. Rub with a clove of garlic
  3. Spread desired amount of cream cheese
