Monday dinner, 3-12-2018, what's cookin?

Chicken chilaquiles. No pictures because they just aren't pretty, a very rustic, kind of messy dish. Tortillas cut in strips and fried. Chicken seasoned with S, P and cumin, sauteed until done, cooled and shredded. Onions, fresh chiles (poblano or Hatch), garlic, tomatoes, and I added tomatillas tonight because we had some left over from another meal, all chopped and sauteed until done, seasoned the same as the chicken. Chicken stirred in, mixture covered with Mexican melting cheese, covered with crema, sort of a Mexican creme fraiche, covered and warmed until cheese melts. Served with the fried tortilla chips. This was one of my better ones, don't really use the recipe anymore, but I think I'll add tomatillos from now on.

This also can be a vegetarian dish, just leave out the chicken. We actually first started making this from a vegetarian Mexican cookbook.

I went freezer diving and came up with Honey Baked Ham slices!!!
I had an Okinawan Sweet Potato in the pantry that needed to be eaten,
steamed that, now just got look for something green.
DH is having a Costco Croissant with his, too much calories for moi.

We were out to see the grand kids all day. DIL made a big ol' ham in her new instant pot yesterday. She sent home some leftover ham for us. Very salty but tasty. We made fried ham and eggs and nuked corn for dinner. Dx made grape tomato halves on small green salad for us too.

Snowstorm forecasted for tonight and tomorrow, so sneaking in a grilled dinner while I can. Marinated steak tips on the grill, wild rice blend with bacon and mushrooms in the Zoji, roasted asparagus.

I'm doing a skillet to oven Greek inspired dish with chicken thighs, lemon and orzo. Sure smells good.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Tried a new recipe tonight for Tuscan Butter Shrimp from Delish. Com. It was excellent! Sautéed shrimp with spinach, basil, cherry tomatoes Park and cream. yum.

We're having a minor snow storm tonight - freezing rain with a couple inches of snow - so a warming soup is on the menu. Minestrone with a bunch of veggies, chicken thighs and a few stray slices of salami I minced for extra flavor. Served with toasted homemade bread (and a few sticks of extra carrot for me).
