Years ago I had a boyfriend who said he liked it when we hardly had any food in the house because that's when I got the most creative with cooking. I must say, as much as I like trying lots of new recipes I do get a special thrill from improvising in the moment with whatever is on hand. I didn't get out to the grocery store over Christmas so the past few days have been a lot of recycled meals. Today's was probably the easiest and most satisfying. I chopped up the leftover Christmas capon and forcemeat (see my last post for more details on that meal), added the leftover sauce, two cans of cannellini beans and some water. The result was a delicious white bean stew. Easy, fast, good!
