Default June Dinners. What are you cooking?

I tried a several new recipes that have become favorites.

Healthy chicken schwarama bowls (not very authentic but still delicious) from Recipe Runner. https://reciperunner.com/healthy-chi...hawarma-bowls/

Thai grilled chicken (gai yang) from Recipe Tin Eats. I also made her coconut rice and Asian salad dressing. I love her site and will be making lots of her recipes.
https://www.recipetineats.com/thai-g...cken-gai-yang/. This recipe is definitely worth the extra ingredients if you love Thai food. As far as Asian recipes go, I didn't have to buy too many extra things.

I made a crockpot Creole kielbasa and chicken dish over rice for dinner. It was just okay...not bad but not amazing either. At least it was healthy.

This was amazing. Creamy Tuscon Chicken.

I served it with quinoa and green beans. It would be good with pasta too.

I made black bean and brown rice enchiladas on whole wheat tortillas and it was awesome! I dumped a jar of corn and black bean salsa in the filling and it was the best shortcut ever. Stick em in the oven for 20 min on 350,top with Mexican cheddar and some more salsa. Yum.

Nothing. I am cooking nothing, and I am okay with that I'm always nauseated.
But DH made grilled cheese for me last night, so

Rainy day so my joints are done in and lots of the kids have summer colds, so I am making chili... Lamb and lentil for the fam and Quorn and lentil for the veggie kid. lazy I suppose but the spices should get the sick ones' sinuses opened up.

Carne Guisada(Mexican beef stew). I use this recipe. It is so easy and everyone in my family likes it.

https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/m...guisada-2.html

You can also add other veggies to it to make a one pan meal. I have used okra, peas, and carrots (one at a time not all together). My mother in law also puts potatoes in hers. Today I'm adding mushrooms because I have some n hand that need to be eaten.

Surf and turf. Someone at work gave me a filet mignon but it's small so I'm making shrimp, and small piece of salmon, and asparagus all on the grill. Or I should say DH is making it on the grill .

I made barbacoa beef with a tri-tip in the crockpot and we used it to make tacos and also had a mexican salad. It was yummy and everyone was happy so I'm going to try and remember to make it more this summer since it won't heat up the house. It was 98 degrees here today!
