That's the kind of thing I want to teach. How to keep staples around, and how to use them along with leftovers or similar to make good, quick meals. I didn't follow a recipe for the pot pie. I just knew what I wanted in it and how I wanted it too taste. Okay, I did have to follow a recipe for the pie crust, but my point is- cooking does not have to be complicated, expensive or laborious. What is should be is fun and nourishing.
