Monday, Sept. 4 dinner

So I browned some chicken and put it in the SS skillet where I had some onions and celery going (seasoned w/oregano, s&p). Added baby carrots. Covered it with some jarred alfredo, white wine, and a little butter. Let it cook up a bit, and then threw it in the oven at 350 about 10 minutes ago.

I'm gonna check it in about half an hour and then start some rice.

What're you concocting?

We really had an easy meal yesterday, so today I'm making chicken enchilladas, rice, beans, salsa and chips before dinner, beer, ice tea, and we have a key lime pie left from yesterday so dessert is done and waiting. The girls said they were each bringing an appy so we shall see what falls onto the counter

After what felt like a food orgy this past weekend, and having the house all to myself, I just warmed up some leftover pasta.

I see no cooking around here till Friday! hahaha

Sounds great Marion!
How do you spice up your lamb before grilling it?

Since the weather was rainy, no grilling for us today. I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas, and gravy. It was a comfort food meal

I think dinner will be alone tonight. DD's husband and little guy are at the hospital and I am getting much needed rest, sort of. Babysat our DS's 2 DD's last night until after midnight. Uff da.......................more spaghetti and meatballs for me I think. If I get up the gumption, I'll make my DD the best carrot cake recipe ever. She comes home tomorrow from the hospital. I've noticed she orders carrot cake everyday for lunch in the hospital and although it probably suits the bill, I know mine is to die for. She apparently loves carrot cake so to come home to a large panfull, she may really be a happy girl, mommy.

Enjoy your evening.
