I'll be making linguine with saute'ed then sliced boneless skinless chicken breast, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, tomato, red onion all tossed in pesto made last summer. Extra parmesan. I also made red jello today with sliced up frozen strawberries. No laughing in the corner. I like jello.

And once again my dinner plans have changed! LOL! We are now having Chicken Breast Zelda. (A lemony, oniony dish) We'll also have quinoa or pasta, a big green salad and some steamed broccoli. Dessert is help yourself to the leftover blueberry pie, the chocolate chip cake and the ice cream.

I will add a garden salad and brown rice to round out the meal!
The pork chops turned out better than I could have hoped for. We were running out of time so I didn't do rice and didn't get a picture, but am going to start leaving the camera in the kitchen so it is ready!

Is the recipe available for the chicken, Alix? It sounds yummy!

I might've posted it. I'll go look it up and post it if I haven't already. Its killer good.

Found it! I edited Zelda's recipe and posted it with my "twists". We still call it Zelda at home.

Chicken a la Alix

there's always room for it, whisk.

i kinda like jello, too. just the red stuff, though, and no chunks of anything in it.


we used up the leftover shrimp from the super bowl shrimp cocktail and made shrimp marinara with whole wheat spaghetti.

mmm, some feta on there and it's right up my alley. Sounds great.

I'm having a St Louis style BBQ'd pork steak and some grilled Brussel sprouts. I might make another mushrooms gratin, too.

Our burritos came out fairly good. I took the leftover brisket from the freezer and warmed it up, ran it through the chopper, added a can of pinto beans and corn, sprinkled with garlic and onion powders and a dash of cayenne pepper. Served it on flour tortillas with sour cream and cheddar cheese.
