Default Re: Meals in August....

I made salsa verde chicken with rice last night. sliced cucumber and peas for green things on the side. (not together)

Tonight, I am making the caprese chicken and orzo that someone posted last month, and spinach on the side.

Monday, I made taco soup in the instant pot. For some reason, it did not seal (OK, I know the reason....I forgot to put the ring on. ....still dealing with covid brain fog. ) All the liquid evaporated. It was like chili. Everyone loved it and said to make chili like that again, that it was way better than my usual chili.

I love those happy accidents!

I made French bread pizzas last night and whipped up some chicken with a creamy sauce (tomatoes, spinach with an Alfredo based sauce but I added cream cheese and the chicken cooking liquid) to have some extra protein with it.

I also made Lima beans for me to eat with the chicken (I'm not eating pizza right now) and they were SO GOOD. I cooked them in water and drained and then added butter, salt, pepper, and cream.

Last night I grilled lemon rosemary chicken and zucchini and made smashed potatoes with homemade ranch.



Tonight I'm planning on cheese enchiladas and mexican rice, but might do salad on the side instead.

I did a Crock-Pot roast with red potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms. I used a new recipe and the acid it called for was balsamic vinegar. I will not do that again. It wasn't bad but apple cider is much better.

I think tonight we'll have Lebanese Stuffed Squash in a tomato sauce to take advantage of the small zucchini and yellow squash and the tomatoes in the garden.

I'd love the recipe for that.

I was exhausted after a full day. We had tortellini and Caesar salad.

I'm trying a new recipe tonight and I copied the recipe without the title so I have no idea what it's called! It's a polenta pizza pie thing. I'll serve it with spinach salad.
