I made this tonight. It came out so beautiful I had to snap a picture. Yummy, right?
We served Maddie the chicken and carrots but skipped the olives. And she ate a few pieces of zucchini (which she calls “keenie”). It’s not her favorite vegetable. She had green beans and cauliflower for lunch, though, so I didn’t really sweat it.
Some other recent dishes:
Braised Chicken with Mushrooms: Pretty good. I really like mushrooms, but they can be a pain. Not sure this was good enough to be worth the trouble, especially on a weeknight.
Lentil Curry: I love this. I have to make it on a night Preston is out because he doesn’t like curry. But Maddie loves it and it’s easy, so it’s good for nights when it’s just the two of us. Plus it re-heats well for lunches.
Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Broccoli: Nothing special, but simple for a weeknight and it has all of Maddie’s faves: pasta, chicken and broccoli.
I also got my new issue of Everyday Food and have already cooked a couple of things: a prosciutto and mushroom quesadilla and orecchiette with bacon tomato sauce, which will be transformed into a frittata tomorrow night. Unfortunately Martha doesn’t put current recipes on the site (silly, silly) so if you want to try them you’ll have to buy the magazine. (See what she’s doing there? Doesn’t that seem like a smart strategy because you buy the magazine instead of getting the recipe for free on the site? But no, that’s dumb. Because you aren’t going to remember to go buy that magazine. But you might click a link, make a dish and then think, “Hey, these are good recipes, I should subscribe to this magazine.” That’s a smart strategy. Sorry. I am wearing my marketing hat … )
So, what’s cooking at your house?
