I didn’t look all that hard but I thought I’d start a thread about food we have been making during this COVID ... could be something you’ve baked like bread, or maybe something you’ve dehydrated for a backpacking trip, or whatever suits your fancy.

I’ll start ... strawberry-rhubarb pie (fresh rhubarb from my neighbor’s backyard)

I don't think anyone wants to see the stay-at-home crap I've been eating. Last night I dumped all the tortilla chip fragments from the bottom of the bag onto a paper plate, microwaved it with some leftover parmesan cheese packets and ate it over the sink with my fingers. I didn't take a picture but here's a rough approximation of what it looked like:

:poop:

Sure, I love food.

We have tried to save some money by returning to pasta a few nights a week, just like back in college the week before payday.
My pickiest of kids has fallen in love with Lasagna Rosa, so it has become a weekly affair and is tons better than just spaghetti. Rosa meaning I make a homemade alfredo- about double what we need for one meal, the day before. Then the next day combine the leftover alfredo with any good canned red sauce (aka gravy) and use that as sauce in the lasagna with cheese filling.
For lunch it has been cold sesame noodles (not yet perfected), or pasta puttanesca.
I have to keep walking and hiking every day just to burn those carbs off, but it's cheap.

Recently though my wife got me a bag of frozen scallops for my birthday. Ceviche last week, poached while backpacking over the weekend (since the fire for the grill was a failure :whistle:), and tomorrow grilled over pasta. (only one of my kids will eat seafood, so I get them all to myself).
