Monday, 5/16/11 What's Cooking?

Thanks to powerplantop's lucious photos of pimento cheese burger yesterday, I had pimento cheese already made up to top a toasted English muffin for brunch. Tonight will be Taco Wild Rice from the freezer. Easy.

What's happening in your kitchen today?

Making a household favorite - chicken with pickled peppers over rice.

I am breaking out my brand spankin' new 4 quart All Clad soup pot for a homemade chicken vegetable soup- loaded with shredded chicken, carrots, green beans, corn, diced tomatoes and spinach.

It feels more like Fall than late Spring here today.

It's barely 50F and cloudy. Seems more like a fall day than the middle of May, so I'm going to make Mixed-Greens and Sausage Soup with Cornmeal Dumplings.

Have some bananas in the freezer that I'm going to turn into banana bread for dessert.

Sheesh! Is this really May in the South?

I think I'll grill some chicken wings, with some heat to the sauce to ward off this weather.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I had a bit of leftover cold Chicken and Parsley Potatoes for brunch, so I think I will make another batch of sauce for my leftover Sweet and Sour Pork w/Jasmine rice. I like it saucy.

Trying a recipe from the first DDD cookbook. Greens with andouille and tasso. Seems those greens in the garden continue to produce.
