There is a basket that sits next to my desk. It collects the various mason jar tools and accessories that people often send me. Over the last few weeks, this basket has gotten so full that its contents threaten to spill out across my small work area.

Instead of schlepping the excess off to the Goodwill, I thought I’d put together a pair of assorted accessory grab bags and offer them up for giveaway here. I’ll divide up the goodies you see pictured here, along with some other items I’ve found since taking that picture and send them off to the two lucky winners.

  1. Breakfast for dinner, spaghetti with meat sauce, frozen ravioli with marinara, takeout pizza — you’re not the only one who needs a little inspiration!

  2. America’s Test Kitchen’s skillet penne with chicken sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach has been my go-to easy meal lately. It’s really forgiving, so if I use beans because I don’t have sausage, or if I use tomato sauce instead of sun-dried tomatoes, or whatever I have in the freezer and pantry instead of what’s in the recipe, it always turns out well as long as I keep the water-to-pasta ratio about the same.

  3. I’ve been hitting the ol’ egg-sandwich-with-jam routine. I’m thoroughly inspired by this comment thread though!

  4. I was sucked into making a big pot of chicken pho because Smitten Kitchen said it was the best soup she’d ever made. Lots of work. Very good, even though I couldn’t manage to nail every ingredient and every step. One of those, is it worth all the trouble ? recipes. Next day DH brings home packages of frozen store-bought pho that someone gave him. “Oh, look what I have…!” Well, one can’t have too much chicken soup in the winter, and an excuse to heat up the kitchen for hours on end.

  5. Herb crusted baked chicken and boneless pork chops. I seem to be in a rut lately so I understand your need for inspiration.

  6. Homemade pizza is a great way to use up odds and ends of food. I had family in town and we made 3 different pizzas:

    tomato sauce + pineapple
    pesto + caramelized onions + roasted asparagus
    pesto + sauted greens (chard, mustard, kale) + sausage

    All with homemade crust and cheese.

  7. I found a recipe for Taco meat in the crock pot that is so easy and we either had it with homemade tortillas and even homemade buns like a sloppy joe.

  8. Vegetable yakisoba; vegetable chicken potstickers; rice, bean, and avocado burritos; pizza with salami, fresh mozzarella, yellow pepper, and onion. I tend to just make 2-3 things and then eat them in rotation. When I am feeling really lazy, I love to eat cereal for dinner. 🙂

  9. Supper last night – broccoli cheese soup with home canned chicken added and sour cream and cheddar cheese – yum. Lunch today Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches after canning mushrooms and mushroom stock. more yum. 🙂

  10. Just made porterhouse steaks on the grill. May not be inspirational, but was a treat to finally grill out during our Minnesota winter.

  11. Ginger chicken ramen soup from the America’s Test Kitchen Slowcooker Revolution! We have the plague (have had for a month) in our house. It was a nice switch from Chicken Noodle, and starting back from maternity leave means the crockpot is my friend.

  12. I keep finding “ugly zucchini” at our local farm store and we’ve been eating them sliced them “noodly” with a mandoline, sauted with a lot of garlic and a splash of wine, tossed with whole wheat spaghetti, olive oil, and cheese (parmesan, feta, goat, whatever we have on hand). So good! So fast!!

  13. Green lentil salad with red onion, carrot & feta (red wine vinegar, mustard & olive oil dressing). I am addicted & so is my 15 month old.

  14. I had homemade pizza, with diced chicken and BBQ sauce. I have also made Burdock pickles and homemade sauerkraut. I am sure ready for some fresh greens from the garden!

  15. Reading through the comments was inspiring! So many yummy ideas!

    The whole family is on a mission to eat better and be more active so for now we’re avoiding too many carbs and focusing on whole food proteins. I’m loving Parmesan-crusted chicken and mashed cauliflower with butter, sour cream and Ranch.
    Also, grilled Halloumi cheese from a local dairy. Soooo good!

  16. I have been on a staycation this week – lots of cooking. Spaghetti with local tomatoes from the freezer, local grass fed beef, homemade whole wheat noodles. Bacon and broccoli quiche. Mushroom and spinach frittata with homemade bread. Tomato soup with fresh tortillas. It was a fun vacation. Didn’t get out of the ktichen much.
