I had ground beef simmering and was going to just make Hamburger Helper for dinner (poverty has reduced me that far). So I open the cabinet and look for the HH. Its not there. Emergency in the Peek house.
Thinking quickly and moving with cat-like reflexes, I open a can of diced tomatoes, can of black beans, can of corn, and about 3/4 cup of leftover red rice. In it all goes. I also throw in what I believed to be curry powder, but in actuality, I had grabbed turmeric. So it got about 1-1/2 tablespoons of turmeric. Then I found the curry powder, and put another tablespoon or so of that in. Finished off with some cayenne, and done. Dinner saved.
Peeks delicious curried Hamburger Helper.
