On My Mind: Hubby cooks in self defense

Hubby cooked for us last night: lightly fried wild turkey breast, leftover sweet potatoes, raw carrots and sliced tomatoes. He'd made a sweet potato casserole for us to take to a family get-together the night before but cooked too many sweet potatoes to fit in the pot. (Dunno why he boiled the sweet potatoes before baking the casserole.) I made a lazy crab dip--layers of cream cheese, crab meat and cocktail sauce--and some margaritas to take.
I'm sort of a feast and famine sort of cook, but I don't always starve when going through my "lazy days." (Y'know, the kinda days when you don't feel like doing a bloomin' thing!) I cook like crazy for a few weeks and then go for at least a week not knowing what to cook...so I don't.
   That's where Hubby comes in. When I don't feel like cooking, he pinch hits very well. Gotta love that!
Tonight I ate a Clif bar and an apple for dinner. So, Hubby made himself a sandwich and these potato cakes, using some leftover parsley potatoes I'd made the other day. He always comes up with something better than I do on the nights we just scrounge! BTW, this is our new non-stick skillet with a porcelain finish. Maybe I've finally found an alternative to those scary non-stick skillets that are usually made with iffy chemicals. I'll let you know if this kind holds up!
   Well, that's what's on my mind today. What's on yours? Hope you'll share your link here or on down-to-earth!

That frypan certainly does look like a better choice. And the food doesn't look too bad either!

If I don't cook, we just "scrounge". Hubby never did cook. When I met him, he lived on a pretty steady diet of Doritos and bananas. Ugh!

What kind of pan is that? I'd LOVE to get rid of my non-stick.

Your hubby's potato patties look delicious! I can definitely relate to those days when cooking just does not seem appealing. I took today off from both cooking and cleaning myself. A sabbath, I suppose!
