Mystery Ingredients Equals ????
As I was cleaning out my purse the other day, disposing of all the little scraps of papers, throat lozenge wrappers, a backup diaper for my grandson, I discovered this list of ingredients for a recipe. The only problem is, I cannot for the life of me remember what the finished dish was or who's blog I read and thought, "Wow, this looks good. I have to make this!".
As I read the list, I noticed that I took the time to write legibly, a far cry from some of my other lists I prepare. Based on the check marks, I even inventoried the items in my cupboard and placed the list in my purse when I made my next grocery store run.
Here is the list of ingredients ...
2 baking potatoes
6 celery stalks
6 medium carrots
1 TB vegetable oil
coarse salt and pepper
1 large onion
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 pounds ground chuck
1 cup whole milk
1 1/5 cups shredded sharp white cheddar
13 x 9 pan
So that's it. A list of 12 ingredients that when combined in some fashion, will produce some fabulous dish. I get the sense that something critical is missing. Oh, let me not forget to mention that I already reviewed every recipe on Dlyn's blog and I couldn't make a match.
