Tuesday 3/14/17 what's on the dinner menu?

I made some sizzling chicken fajitas. I really cranked up the heat on the cast iron skillet to give the chicken, peppers, and red onions a nice char. Served on flour tortillas.

I should buy some decent fajita seasoning. This packet stuff isn't that good. I only used half of the chicken, so we have some left for another meal.

For Pi day we are having cheddar/ onion/artichoke quiche cups (in muffin tins). I've made these before.

And a new salad. Spinach, red grapes ( the grapes in the store were on steroids, huge, so grape halves, snipped dates and blue cheese (gorgonzola) with a simple red wine vinaigrette. I was paging thru Food 52 or Food Gawker a while back and saw this. Didn't copy the recipe and now it looks like it needs something crisp in it like toasted walnuts. About the best I can do is add a few cucumber slices. I like the idea of adding dates.

I bought a 6-pack of chicken legs at the store, and baked them up. The price for the package was $2.36. I ate 3 of them, and have 3 left for tomorrow. Other than eggs, this has got to be one of the cheapest meals out there.

my plate of Pastor and Camaron

We tried a different restaurant here in our new neighborhood; I found it wonderful, fresh housemade tortillas. We chose flour over corn, AND they have a Salsa bar, with the works! DH wasn't impressed, oh well, it was TJ's mini pizzas when we got home for him

So, it's not just me. My parents love corned beef and cabbage. It does nothing for me. But, I love a good slaw.

Brussel sprouts are great, and awful, depending how they are cooked. I slice them in half and cook them in bacon fat, and combine them with the cooked bacon. Almost everything is better with bacon, but b-sprouts really work with bacon, IMO.

Casey, shred them and saute in bacon gold or butter. Delicious! On occasion, I'll sit at my little work table in the kitchen with the TV going and pull the individual leaves off the heads until they get too small. Those little petals seem to be extra-good. Probably because of the time it took!

Himself wondered if that "processed" applied to preparing them, or after-the-fact.
