I was faced with a meal I hadn’t planned for. I almost caved and just took the kids out to a restaurant, but we had just been out the previous day. I decided to go home and see what I could invent from what I had on hand. Here it is. Micah liked it and Hannah wouldn’t touch it (which is normal for pretty much anything). I didn’t measure anything so I’ll just describe.
I had some leftover cooked macaroni noodles (brown rice noodles) in the freezer. I defrosted them. I made up a white sauce with butter, flour, milk, and small amount of cheddar and gruyere cheese. Before adding the flour to the butter I sauted a small minced garlic clove in it. I made this sauce thinner than my macaroni and cheese sauce. It was more like a light cream sauce. I added a little salt, pepper, and paprika.
I took a small can of salmon (half the size of the 15oz ones) and used a fork to break off small pieces of salmon into the sauce. I dumped the defrosted macaroni into the sauce, and that’s it. I quite liked it.
Some nice additions to this dish might be asparagus and/or shrimp.
