Pimp My Dinner #1: Frozen Spinach, Leftover Corn, Frozen Squash, and P.A.N.

Shall we play a game?
I’ve got these ingredients but I don’t know what to make for dinner (or lunch) tomorrow.

Your mission if you choose to accept it is to either:

A.  Scour your brain or the interverse and post a suitable recipe.


B.  Make something yourself if you have these items, make a post, then link back here so I can steal your idea for dinner.


The players:  frozen squash, frozen spinach, leftover corn, and P.A.N.

The players: frozen squash, frozen spinach, leftover corn, and P.A.N.

I likely have whatever spice you have or an adequate substitute (I have a problem, I know) so spices are free.  So is salt, pepper, onion, butter/oil, and garlic.

Acceptable liquids: milk or water.
Acceptable sweeteners:  sugar, brown sugar, or honey.
Acceptable condiments: sriracha

This message will not self destruct…

    You could make corn spinach and squash fritters, with a bed of spicy spinach. but that would require flour.. alternately you could do a bean free succotash, using the corn in place of the beans.

    Chopped onion and garlic sauteed with your corn and spinach add a touch of siracha and season with salt and pepper and cumin and paprika. you could serve that with some creamy squash soup, heat your squash with garlic thyme and just enough milk that its slightly loosened. add a dab of butter, some honey and blitz in the blender and season. serve your corn on top as the garnish to your soup. if you have a nice balsamic vinegar a couple of drops on top as a garnish would be nice.

    I want so desperately to do this challenge but I feel paralyzed. Don’t challenge me like this…now my nerves are all messed up! LOL!

      Is the the overwhelming amount of choices holding you back? 🙂

        I have no idea. I think I feel totally pressured to come up with something brilliant and panicked. LOL!

    I am just not that inventive. I would probably warm all ingredients up in the microwave and eat it!
