Chow Mein Noodles

Chow Mein Noodles are quick-cooked so they are light and crunchy.
They make a good and tasty complement to any meal or salad.
I made these using a package of dried Ramen Noodles.
It's an easy treat to make and a lot cheaper than store bought.

1 package Ramen Noodles
2 cups water
2 tablespoons canola oil
salt to taste

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan,
place whole block of noodles in water
and cook for one minute then turn over.
Cook for another minute just to soften.
Remove noodles from water and drain.
Bring oil to heat in a fry pan and fry noodles
turning until you achieve desired crispness.
Remove to drain on paper towels,
salt to taste.

Mashed Potato Sandwich

Just in time for the Thanksgiving day leftovers,
here is my recipe for a great tasting sandwich.
Mashed potatoes between two slices of bread.
You can go crazy and add cranberry sauce,
a few slices of turkey and gravy if desired.

2 slices fresh white bread
4 tablespoons left over mashed potatoes

Make a sandwich by spreading mashed potatoes
onto two slices of white or wheat or rye bread.
Add in other stuff if you like and have a happy day.

Simple Roasted Whole Turkey

With Thanksgiving day approaching I thought
a simple recipe for roasting a turkey was good.
Everyone could use a refresher course for this.
This recipe has no stuffing in the bird.

1 turkey, thawed if frozen
1 onion, peeled and quartered
2 carrots, peeled and cut up
2 celery stalks, cut up
1 cup cold water
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove turkey from packaging and then
remove neck and giblets from inside cavity and set aside
to use for making a stuffing or a turkey gravy.
Place vegetables inside turkey cavity and season
with salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Place turkey on a rack in a roasting pan and bake
for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until done to your liking.
Remove from oven and let rest before serving.

Creamiest Mashed Potatoes

Made using canned Evaporated Milk.
These mashed potatoes are extra special.
They even taste good when eaten cold and
only take about 30 minutes to prepare.

6 cups cold water, salted
6 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled
4 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup evaporated milk, or more

Place salted water in a soup pot,
cut potatoes into quarters into pot.
Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes
or until potatoes are fork tender, drain water.
add evaporated milk, butter, salt and pepper to potatoes.
Using a hand potato mixer mash potatoes until smooth.
Remove mashed potatoes to a serving dish, enjoy.
