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.

And for the sheer hilarity that is a goalie fight:

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 ....
