1 tomato sliced into eighths
Put in a bowl
Smother in chopped or grated cheese (any kind you like)
Add some sour cream
Sprinkle with basil or oregano and red or black pepper. Add some salt.
Put in microwave for one to one and a half minutes and enjoy!
SUGGESTION: If you know you are not going to be able to have lunch, try having a more substantial breakfast. I enjoy having a bowl of hot soup and a roll.
LEFT OVER RICE
you have left over rice? use it in a soup or top with your favorite sauce as a new side dish.
Another thing you can do with left over rice is rinse some chopped meat, fry up some chopped onions, mix together with a cracked egg and put in an ovenproof dish.(don’t forget the salt!) Cover with foil and bake about 45 minutes. Yeah! Meatloaf! Have a cold sandwich to the office the next day.
SUGGESTION: Cook rice or pasta while taking your shower/bath in the morning. For pasta-drain, put in ceramic/glass bowl and refrigerate. When you get home from work boil some water and dump the pasta in it, swish around, drain and voila-ready to eat.
INSTANT APPLE DESSERT
Cut up an apple in chunks, skin and all, put in a small bowl or on a sandwich plate. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg. Add rum if you like. Sprinkle with crushed nuts if you like. Use half and half as a bath for a change in taste. Cover and stick in the microwave for two to three minutes and voila, delicious dessert.
SUGGESTION: Try putting some Jalapeno Mustard in your chicken soup.
NEED TO HYDRATE BUT CAN”T SEEM TO GET THE WATER DOWN?
Try smothering a hotdog or hamburger in red pepper.

Always store leftover boiled potatoes with the skin on. Here’s something you can do as a meal with boiled potatoes:
Skin potatoe(s), cube in a bowl, crack an egg(s) on top and whisk till mixed(or whisk egg(s) separately and pour over potatoe(s)), sprinkle with salt and black or red pepper. Microwave for 3′ 30″. You can add grated cheese, but wait to sprinkle until the last 30 seconds.
If you want to save time, here’s what you do: Make a huge batch of caramelized onions (diced). Use olive oil and when desired color is achieved put a spoonful on pieces of plastic wrap and envelope them or twist up and throw in a container or bag and throw in the freezer. Take a packet and dump it in the skillet next time you need caramelized onion for your recipe. Now you can brown them or blacken them.
NO MORE BOILED HOT DOGS
People who eat boiled franks must be desperate for a quick meal. O.K., if you really must. Here’s what I do: Take a small frying pan, rinse off two hot dogs, place in pan, add some water, boil off the water(approx. 2″), drizzle with olive oil or a dab of margarine, then roll franks back and forth till they’re browned. Enjoy!
