Dinner May the Fourth, 2016 - What's on your Cantina's menu?

I have one chicken breast and one full leg to cook up tonight. I figure I'll sear them a bit on top of the stove, then pop into the oven to finish off. Herbs de Provence will be the seasoning. Also roasting some carrots while the oven is on. I have three small zucchini that need fixin', too. Can't decide if I want to pan fry discs, or broil in the toaster oven and brown some Parma cheese on top. Option Two is winning right now. Plus the usual salads.

What's cooking at your place?

Repeat of a dinner from a couple of weeks ago that we really liked - steamed mussels with fennel and tarragon. I baked some no-knead bread this morning to go along with it.

Left over ribs. I have a ton of left overs to use up before I can cook something new.

May the Forth Be With You!

Have a bunch of frozen asparagus chunks that I nuked and mixed with Idahoan loaded mashed potatoes. Actually tastes pretty good.

It's going to be a light dinner this evening because tomorrow I'm going to get a huge take out Mexican feast from my fave mom and pop Mexican restaurant. It's just too big of a production to make it myself for just one person.

I'm thinking dinner tonight will be a tuna melt on rye and assorted pickles.

I'm making baked herbed chicken. I bought chix quarters, can't think why as they weren't on sale. I guess I will hack off the wing and cook separate. Anyway, dried herb rub, savory, thyme, garlic powder, either sage or rosemary. Buttered frozen corn and mashed potatoes, the best fork-combination ever.

I have a chicken pot pie in the oven. Not sure what, if anything, will go with it. I've got choir rehearsal in a bit so we may go simple and call it good with just the pot pie.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
