What's a girl to do when the clock strikes the one o'clock hour on a Sunday afternoon and there is nada fixed for lunch and the kids will be back form the pool any minute now, more ravenous than ever?
Raid the refrigerator of course and pray for inspiration! And since the empty shelves of my refrigerator are staring me in the face, talk about budget food at it's best!
My gray cells are obviously firing away as I try to assimilate some remnants of a meal as my eyes were furiously scanning the meagre contents inside, the door perched open with my foot and hands pulling out whatever is in the way.
First I pulled out the bagels - my kids do love bagels and then I see one lonesome red potato with more 'eyes' than an alien in a star wars film (which meant it had to be used up), some chives and thyme at the bottom of the crisper, followed by an almost used up carton of sour cream, an itty bitty wedge of goat cheese and some fresh garlic.
Now though I don't really have a plan per se, is but I figure as long as I add some caramelized red onions, the sucker's gotta taste good! I mean let's face it ....caramelized onions have saved the day more times than I care to remember!
So here goes, toasted bagels, topped with some yummy sauteed onions, topped with roasted red potatoes tossed in with some olive oil and thyme then grilled and served with some sour cream, goat cheese & chives crème fraîche type deal.
What say you? I say yes! yes! yes!
