Dinner 2-16-15

I'll be frying up some chicken drumsticks here in a few. Our local grocery store has them for .88/lb and I love them, so I bought 2 family packs. Either a salad or asparagus on the side.

What's everyone having this evening?

Roast guinea fowl, roast potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and chicken gravy.

I placed the bird upside down for a bit, so the underside got crisp and the juices go into the breast.

Tonight is sort of a progressive dinner. It started by cleaning up the last of some vegetable soup, next came a handful of pistachios and in about an hour my butt will be sticking out of the fridge while I survey the remaining possibilities!

Leftovers from a party we co-hosted yesterday. Things on sticks. this is the easiest appy ever. Thin sliced baguette spread with pesto. Top with a compari (small sized ) tomato slice, a fresh basil leaf and top with a little fresh mozz. Poke it with a stick to hold together. A caprese thingie on bread. I made two baguettes so there were a lot and some for today.

Fettuccine alfredo. I think this is the ultimate diet food. It is such a rich sauce, you only can eat a little and you are satisfied.

Which is a good thing, because I ate a few baguette slices while warming up the alfredo sauce. I should have made a salad too, but I "forgot".

A surprising tasty meal of some tri colored pasta, Wal-mart brand jarred alfredo sauce, cut up frozen grilled chicken breasts and some frozen vegetables. Very easy to eat.

I made chicken chop suey and served it over rice. The usual iced tea to drink and, for dessert, we had snow cream and cut-out Valentine cookies. We finally had some measurable snow today and, since I'd never had snow cream, I decided we'd have some for tonight's dessert. Yummy.

Pot roast with onion, turnip, carrot, sweet and Yukon gold potatoes. Also making a side of green beans, in case we don't get enough veggies. It seems like it's taking forever for the meat to get tender enough.

I whipped up stir-fry with some leftover pork, some mushrooms, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, red bell pepper and my secret sauce. We had it over rice.

TJ's orange chicken with slivers of red bell pepper over Jasmine rice.
