Wed. dinner July 30, 2014

What (if anything) is cooking at your house?

Another hot day here and I was hungry for Chicken Tortilla Soup, so I'm doing it out on the grill side burner. Steve will make a salad.

What's happening at your house?

After spending most of midday making eggplant Parmesan using eggplants from our garden, we had eggplant Parmesan for tonight's meal. I sliced off a couple of nice thick slices from a rustic loaf of bread I'd made on Saturday and turned it into garlic bread. A plate of sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, form the garden of course, finished out the meal. A small slice of the pina colada cake for dessert since both of us were so full.

Andy, chicken breasts with bone in and skin on are my favorite way to grill chicken breasts. They tend to be moister than boneless skinless, and I love the skin with a little crispy char on it.

I had a BLT salad this evening. I toasted some dill rye bread and broke it into pieces to sprinkle on top. Actually, it was a BLT salad with avocado and sprouts, so I guess technically I had a BLAST. Pretty yummy stuff.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I finally made it. Fabulous! I give it 4 stars instead of 5 though... it's just too much work to make. It's not hard... just a lot of steps. This one was topped with my turkey meatballs, chicken Italian sausage, and of course sauce (home made) & mozzarella. I will definitely make this again

Yes, Kayelle, I did. I'm getting completely turned off to chicken breasts. Even brined and cooked to the right temperature, they are on the dry side.

We much prefer thighs but a breast sneaks in from time to time.
