I've got to wing it. I don't get paid until tomorrow, and the freezer's basically empty. I'm going to make a "from scratch" version (read: semi-homemade) of Cheesy Mexican Chicken Helper with rice. I've got the chicken, a can of Nacho Fiesta Cheese sauce, plenty of rice, veggies, chicken stock, etc. If it works (and I'll know if about 15 minutes), I'll post the recipe on the Chicken board.

Well, it's done. The kids are eating it, but I'm not sure yet how they like it. It's good, but could use a tweaking. See the recipe on the Chicken board.

Just did a little suf 'n turf trio. Wasn't feeling too creative today.

Grilled Petite Filet Mignon with Merlot Demi; Grilled Lemongrass Skewered Tiger Prawns with Saffron-Coconut Sauce; Pan Seared Halibut with Ginger-Lime Butter Sauce
Peruvian Sweet Potato Mousseline, Sauteed Vegetables, Pea Shoot Salad

$38.00

I also ended up drizzling some Basil Oil and Chili Oil around the plate to give it more color but not when I took the pic.

Last ngiht's dinner was Salsa Sour Cream Chicken made in the crockpot & used to fill crisp blue corn taco shells, which were then topped with fresh chopped tomatoes, lettuce, sweet onion, cilantro, & shredded cheddar cheese. Delicious.

man, i wish i was as boring and uncreative as iron chef... you get me so hungry, dude. gonna try the lemon grass skewered shrimp this summer on the grill, also rosemary and mint skewers.

last night i broiled some hawaiian teryaki marinated pork chops, and boneless chicken hoot.., er, breasts. i made a delicious and simple mango salsa, sliced the chicken on the bias and fanned it out, made a line of the salsa over the top, drizzled it with a sauce made of meat juices and teryaki sauce, served with a side of peruvian sweet potato mousselline. lol, j/k, it was served with a regular ol' baked potato, since i had the broiler crankin'. still, it looked nice on the plate when i brought it upstairs.
then dw told me she had some kielbasi that she made our son for dinner, , so i hope she ate what i made today.
