"the only things you're supposed to have in your fridge is alcohol and water, right?"

street potatoes

made a bunch of potatoes au gratin the other day, now I get to repurpose them! one pan street-style food, super yummy, and uses whatever you have on hand

1 portion of street potatoes with chicken (and pita)
1 thinly sliced chicken breast
1 giant clove of garlic, diced
1/6th or whatever of red onion, diced
curry powder
lime juice
leftover potatoes au gratin (or thinly sliced potatoes)

  • heat the oil on medium, toss in your chicken and the spices, squeeze some lime juice over it too.
  • when the chicken is halfway done, add your onion and garlic
  • after 2-3 minutes, add your potatoes au gratin (it'll break apart, which is a good thing. feel free to seperate it yourself)
  • flip everything every 45 seconds or so, the goal is to get the potatoes nice and crispy

I meant to put mine in the pita, but it broke apart, so I used the pita as a scoop. I recommend it.

potatoes au gratin

dunno what it means, but it's provocative. it's also super cheesy, buttery, and potatoey.

6-8 servings of potato au gratin

2 potatoes, peeled
1 clove garlic
1 cup milk
grated cheese (whatever you want, really)

  • preheat oven to 450
  • peel and slice potatoes as thin as you can. set them in a bowl of cold water.
  • boil your milk.
  • rub the baking dish with butter and a clove of garlic. rub it good.
  • start layering your potatoes; every 2 layers or so, sprinkle on the seasoning and cheese and a couple pieces of butter.
  • keep going till you're out of potatoes, then cover it all with more cheese.
  • pour the boiling milk on top. 
  • put it in the oven for 45 minutes, or until it's super golden brown on top and the potatoes are tender as shit. my oven might just be dumb.

chicken-carbonara pasta

empty fridge means improvising--had some chicken, no bacon, and some eggs, decided to meddle with traditional carbonara. easy squeezy.

2-3 bowls of carbonara with chicken

1 chicken breast
1/4 red onion
1 huge clove garlic
2(ish) cups pasta
1 egg yolk
splash of white wine
curry powder
parmesan cheese

  • set a pot of water to boil for the pasta
  • dice up the chicken and sautee it with the aforementioned spices
  • when the chicken's nearly done, throw in the diced onion and garlic
  • in a new bowl, take 1/3 cup of the pasta water and beat in the egg yolk to temper it.
  • drain the pasta, add it to the chicken, onions, and garlic
  • pour the egg mix over, add cheese, and wine, and toss it like there's no tomorrow.
