Edward on 2 hours' notice! Yay! Bake a bread (and 2 burger buns), simmer up some frozen chicken to add to E's lentil soup.
Wha? Out of ketchup to put on our veggy burgers! Saved the day. Googled a recipe and mixed it up, perfect even uncooked. Yum! The recipe is here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Ketchup-Catsup-Recipe/step1/Ingredients/?f=m (Make half batch but only add a splash of water if serving uncooked.)
No brainer chicken stew: put the chicken pieces in a small heavy pot, cover and simmer on low for a couple hours. Add to the soup for your non-veggy friends.
