Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Eternal Bachelor's Meal
Very Neat Iceberg Salad and Microwave Mini-Pizza
by Susu

Wes Jansen and Hobbie Klivian are Rogue Squadron's eternal bachelors, in both word and deed. The best of friends, they even room together when not required on-base; the cost savings meant being able to do more of what they really wanted to do! Problem was, neither was particularly tidy and both hated doing dishes. Rather than fight over the issue, they made an agreement: they would simply not use any dishes if they could possibly help it. The following menu is simple, straight-forward, and a balanced meal that no one could fault.

The mini-pizza was cooked in a microwave on a paper plate or paper towel, both disposable; they bought tomatoes and toppings pre-sliced and cheese pre-grated at salad bars or bagged that way at the market. The salad was simpler than that. Both were eaten over the sink, with drips and crumbs washed down quickly with the twist of the tap.

Believe it or not, the meal was even offered to dates and visitors, much to everyone's shock! It wasn't formal, but everyone had to admit -- it was tasty and clever! And the advice to disrobe to reduce cleanup ... well ... that's AT LEAST a conversation starter!


Very Neat Iceberg Salad

Cut a head of iceberg lettuce into 4 or 8 wedges, as desired, and depending on appetites. Cut off the core bit. Holding the vegetable wedge over the sink carefully, pour your choice of bottled dressing over and eat. Be sure to lean over the sink, so drips and loose bits don't fall on you or the floor. If you're a hopeless slob, take off your shirt; its easier to clean drips and such off your skin than off your shirt!

Microwave Mini-Pizza

    For every person:
  • 1 English muffin, split
  • 2 slices of tomato
  • pinch of dried basil and/or oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 slices of cheese, such as mozarella, cheddar, muenster, swiss, or 2 tablespoons grated cheese
  • toppings, such as thinly sliced pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.
On each English muffin half, place a tomato slice, and sprinkle with dried herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Carefully sprinkle cheese on top, or place a slice over the tomato. If you are using toppings, add them on top of the cheese. On a microwave-safe, disposable plate or paper towel, microwave on medium-high (70%) power for about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts. Be careful when eating, the cheese is REALLY hot, so leave it for a minute or two before digging in! Hint -- don't go too thick with cheese or toppings, or it won't heat through properly.

Eat carefully over the sink. English muffins are usually baked over a bed of cornmeal, so the little white granular bits could get all over the place. If you use the tomato sauce variation below, it can get goopy. So, over the sink, and take off your shirt if you must!

Variation: Instead of the tomato slice, use a scant tablespoon of spaghetti sauce on each English muffin half, spreading the sauce nearly to the edges. Use a disposable spoon from the market or deli, to reduce clean up.
