What's cooking Sunday, May 31, 2015?

No cooking for me tonight! I made big salads with romaine and red sails lettuce from the garden and the leftover grilled pork and veggies from last night's dinner and the last of the potato salad on the side. I put red-wine vinaigrette on mine and DH put tzatziki on his as the dressing. Good stuff.

What's on your table?

Tried a chicken dish recommended by my brother...chicken breasts pounded then stuffed with a mixture of cream cheese, shredded pepper-jack and green onions, all wrapped in bacon and baked. We had rice cooked in chicken broth instead of water, Italian green beans and iced tea. We were waaaaay to stuffed for dessert.

I was shopping all day so I got a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and made some home fries and cole slaw.

The last of the rotisserie chicken will be used for Korean influenced quesadillas. I know that sounds weird but we had one off a Korean food truck recently and it was deeeelicious. I hope I can come close to what we had.

She nailed it! We were waiting for our delayed flight at LAX, and I saw this Korean Lunch Truck in the food court in the terminal!
They offered a sweet chili chicken quesadilla that Kayelle loved. So, tonight she attempeted to replicate it.
Along with the chicken, she added grated cheese, cilantro, Go-chu-jano (Korean sweet and spicy sauce), and we topped them with Trader Joe's Sweet chili sauce, and a squirt of Sriracha.
It was great!!

We were going to grill some burgers. I got confused. I thought there were two packs of ground beef in the fridge, so I put one in the freezer. Well, it was one pack of ground beef and one of ground pork. The beef was the one I put in the freezer. We ordered out. I got chicken wings and Stirling got a Philly cheese sub. We had potato salad with that, since I had already made it to go with the burgers.

After all the French toast discussion in another thread, we had breakfast for supper. Heated up the last of the grilled ham, and made French toast with sweet bread. Delish!
