Lemon chicken (chicken tenders sauteed in shallots, lemon juice, etc.), served over orzo, with a side of nuked broc.

No Taco Tuesday here in the middle of the desert.
DH challenged me NOT to buy an food items for one week,
just use what I have on hand, and I ran out shredded cheese, DANG IT!!!

It's been a very busy day for us, up before the Sun and off to two doctor's appointments for him (nothing major, just follow up stuff).
We had a meager breakfast and no lunch so it was an early supper for us.

I scrounged around the `fridge and freezer and came up with some Grilled Greek Style Seasoned Chicken Thigh meat, all diced up, from a previous BBQ.
And a good thing too boy!

It's raining, hailing, blowin', and bangin' and a boomin' this afternoon here,
Flash Floods are in affect.

This Chopped Veg Salad was fabulous with the addition of some Castelvetrano Green Olives and more of my homemade Greek Style Seasoning, as well my homemade Vinaigrette

Above is DH's bowl; added are Anchovies that I found while on our last road trip to CA/NV. They're from Sicily and he's in LOVE! Now I'm going to have to find them here ... oh thank you WWW, I can order them on line you say

We had some TJ's Half Baked Idea Mini Ciabatta bread and if this nasty storm keeps up, it'll be some Hot Cocoa and Marshmallows later for dessert.

Basically, but it is made of a thick plate of steel, instead of ceramic.

Holy moly, what wonderful looking and sounding dinners.

I had a taco salad this afternoon with Tyler after school and before his baseball game at 5. So busy with the grands lately, but I love it.

It's been an age since I did fried chicken but tonight was the night. I buttermilk soaked 4 thighs and shook them with spicy flour mix, letting them rest between shakes on a rack for a total of three times. Fried them up in enough hot oil to get them to a golden brown and finished them on the same resting rack in the oven. Ohh yeah!
Those new OXO silicone roasting racks worked out perfect.
Roasted asparagus and rolls were the sides.

We had tacos. Well, Himself had a soft taco, along with a salad. I made a bigger salad for me and just plopped the barbaco meat down on one part of the salad.Click image for larger version

I had my book club meeting last night. The hostess made chili and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, so I made a fall salad to go with it. Romaine lettuce with chopped apples, dried cherries, pumpkin seeds and goat cheese with a vinaigrette made with apple cider vinegar.

I should ask her for the recipe. I don't usually like chili because it often has an overwhelming amount of chili powder, but hers was just right. I think it could have used a tad bit more heat, though.

Casey would hate it It had kidney beans

Actually, I use beans in my chili, but not kidneys. Kidney beans must be a NE thing, because that's what my mom used. She also served chili over boiled potatoes. "I certainly didn't "hate" it. But, given the choice...

I use Ranch Style (brand) Beans, which are pinto beans. And prefer chili served over fresh baked crumbled cornbread.

If I am cooking chili for a crowd, I keep it a little on the mild side, and put a variety of hot sauces on the table.
