I've decided on lemon chicken breasts, pressure cooker risotto and some green beans. I've never used the PC for risotto. We'll see how we do.

I heated the remainder of my beef and beans enchiladas from the other day and made a fresh salad with tomatoes, cukes, avocado, jalapeno and a healthy sqweeze of lime juice. Still have a partial container of beef mix, so that's being retired to the freezer for another day. I generally prefer not to freeze tortillas, but they're going in there too.

I went to sign up for Slimming World this evening and before going I've been finishing off all the fattening foods in the freezer and 'fridge. My evening meal before Slimming World included a pizza, some salted caramel biscuits and a packet of peanut M&Ms.

Yes, I know that sounds crazy but if it stayed in the house I might fall off the wagon and scoff it but I can't bear to throw away food.

It's been 90 and very humid here. We're having salad and leftover stuff for a light meal today. Maybe a dish of ice cream later on when it's not so hot.

I was hoping to buy some Danish sandwiches at the Danish Club luncheon, but alas, there were none. Stirling ordered pizza. I had two souvlaki sticks and made a Montreal Greek salad: tomato slices, onion slices, feta, a few kalamata olives, EVOO, and a sprinking of Greek oregano from my garden.

Half an avocado with tabasco sauce, and a piece of toast with PB with a friend's lovely peach jam.

Maiden voyage of Simply Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada Recipe - Food.com. Not a big fan of Mexican food so all I've ever made are tacos and burritos - basically sandwiches. Since Himself enjoys Mexican foods I thought I'd start stretching my skill set. I even used extra green chilies! They were surprisingly good. My SIL brought over her from-scratch scalloped potatoes tonight and will be running a sample size of Pasta Fagioli over tomorrow. She can take her food container from the potatoes back home with a couple enchiladas in it. Hmm, maybe we should plan food-swaps so we each cook once and eat twice...

Tonight was fettuccine with sauteed garlic, red bell pepper, mushrooms, and asparagus, cut on the diagonal, with white wine and chicken broth. Served with Parmigiano Reggiano.
