Recently I had the pleasure of my son's company for an impromptu dinner. Doug was out of town for business and I knew my son was on his own with leftovers for a few days. His wife is out of town and I thought it would be a good chance to catch up and combine all our leftovers for an international meal.
I had planned to make Rogan Josh so I'd have a hot Indian meal for dinner and leftovers for lunch. Additionally, there were a few pieces of fried chicken and Cole Slaw in the fridge. Tristan had made a seafood soup tossing in ingredients here and there, so he brought his pot of soup over for me to try. Behold the international dinner.
I must say he did a good job on this soup with no recipe at all. Since he was playing bachelor he could add in ingredients his wife doesn't care for like onions and bell peppers. It was great!
The seafood was a frozen mixed bag with crab, oysters, fish and mussels. His base was a jarred tomato pasta sauce, chopped onions, diced green bell peppers, tomatoes, salt and pepper. It made an enormous pot of soup so he was eating it for days and days. I suggested he freeze some before he got sick of it. Between all the food we had it was a feast. Lots of fun.
I'm looking forward to him joining us again for dinner now Doug is back from traveling, have a family meal as we did when he was a teenager.
