What's for Supper, Wednesday, August 19th?

I'm makiing Mark another pork chop, just preparing it a different way. There is one more from the pack I took out to thaw yesterday. I freeze them like that... in two or three chop servings. That way I can take out what I need.

To save time, I cooked myself a small seasoned chicken breast last night and cubed it. That will be part of my dinner. Either in soup or chicken salad.


What are you having for supper?

Busy day for me and am having a guest for dinner. I'll be preparing chicken cacciatore, Italian green beans, orzo risotto and triple chocolate cherry bars for dessert.

The chocolate cherry bars sound delicious. Is there a recipe hereabouts?

Thanks.

I ended up cooking bacon wrapped chicken breast which was seasoned with thyme, salt and pepper then fried both sides to seal and colour then topped with a tomato marinated with basil and garlic and finally wrapped in bacon and cooked in the oven. The chicken was very juicy and extremely flavoursome.



I served this with potato salad which I was inspired to cook by VanillaBean and I based the recipe on Msmofets but had to change a few things because some ingredients I couldn't get. I'll post the adapted recipe soon.





And here it is altogether

awwww... thank you for the kinds words, jonny! Your chicken looks almost like a Saltimbocca kind of thing... but that uses prosciutto and sage, I think. I'm craving your potato salad, by the picture. It looks so elegant. That is a tough thing to achieve with potato salad!

I will post the link to the recipe I used for the potato salad. mark said it would have been perfect if it had had alittle mustard. And, I used half Miracle Whip and half mayo.... Plus, green onion, in place of the reg onion.

I can't wait to see your recipe!

That all looks very good. I like to bake my potatoes when I make salad. I think the flavor is different.
I think we're going to have Shepherd's Pie tonight.

That 's what I did with my potato salad! I agree.. it gives it a different kind of flavor.
