Monday, 3-7-2016 ~ What's dinner, Doc?

I have two "Dolly Parton" sized chicken breasts that I'll cook stove-top. Making a butter spread with lemon zest and fresh thyme that I'll tuck under the skin and rub over the top. I already have the dish of spaghetti squash that I roasted last night, all pulled into strings and waiting for a dab of butter. Rooted out some already roasted beets that haven't been put to their intended use, so those will get heated up too. And I have one lonely zuch left that I'll cut up and saute.

What are your dinner dreams for tonight?

Tomato soup and a BLT salad with blue cheese dressing.

As of right now, I'm thinking "breakfast for dinner." Maybe a Mexican scramble of some sort, since I have chorizo sausage and lots of eggs in the fridge.

I showed SO a list of meals I had planned for the week and she chose pizza. So I just made a pot of sauce (I get 6 pizzas worth of sauce from a 28 ounce can of tomato. Now I have to make the dough. I get two pizzas out of a recipe.

I made a pasta salad this morning, so will have that with either a leftover roasted chicken thigh, or a slice of ham from the freezer.

The salad turned out delicious - small shells, chopped bacon, shredded carrot, peas, chopped zucchini and celery....mixed with a blend of mayo, rice vinegar, salt and cracked pepper, and topped with toasted pine nuts. Yum. Come to think of it, I might chop the chicken thigh and mix it all together for dinner.

That sounds great, Cheryl! Thanks for the inspiration! I have some potatoes that are sprouting, so I'm going to make potato salad with some of my homemade mustard. I also have bacon left over from the amazing breakfast DH made for us, so I'll add that, and bits of bell peppers and red onion I'll throw in. I think I'll also thaw some ground beef and make burgers - we have some burger buns that need to be eaten.

I wished I had bell peppers and red onions to mix in with it GG, but I'm out. I really love those in a pasta/potato salad.

When I pulled the zucc from my veggie bin I noticed a half-package of mushrooms. Tossed them into the chicken pan, along with a thinly sliced shallot, and made a delicious butter-and-white-wine pan sauce. Even though dinner was a lot of leftovers and must-go ingredients, it was great.

I don't know why in the world I've never done this famous recipe from our beloved Kades, but I did it tonight, and it sure won't be the last time. It's ridiculous delicious! I halved the recipe with two brined loin chops and served his on top of mashed potatoes, and mine on a bed of wilted baby spinach. We shared some oven roasted asparagus.

I'f you've never done Kades recipe, you're missing something. Still miss you Kades. xxxxooo
Pork Chops in Onion Sauce..REC.
