Leftovers and Hockey Fights

I'm having a hard time getting a handle on this week. I am working in an unusual situation which puts me in a difficult position for procuring groceries. Therefore it's really going to be all about how I can stretch what we have in the fridge. Making new meals out of my leftovers is one of my favorite tasks but there is a point where the challenge becomes nearly insurmountable. However, tonight it hadn't reached that point. Though I am wondering what the heck I'm going to do with all those pinto beans!



For the salad I used some of the leftover maple dijon salmon from last night with some beets and goat cheese over mixed greens.

Normally I would insert the latest chapter of Space Phalanx: The Human-Zzintar Wars here but I fear the story is getting a little too difficult to follow. Perhaps I'll get it back up on a separate feed sometime soon!


For the main course I made some roasted artichoke, tomato, and marscapone raviolis that I had in the freezer. I topped them off with the remaining gruyere and a little olive oil.

We're watching the Rangers-Devils game and there is an awful lot of discussion about fighting in hockey. That got me to remembering some of Wayne Gretzky's fights. I thought I'd sign off with one of my all time favorites.

Enjoy.

Ron Hextall not only fought but he is also one of very few goalies to score multiple goals!

Speaking of Flyer goalies, Jen once told me that she had a crush on John Vanbiesbrouck when she was younger. If she says differently, SHE LIES.

I don't even know who John Van Biesbrouck is! I think Lisa might be the liar ....
