Due to some divine scheduling, I haven't had to cook* dinner for four lovely evenings.
*This means seriously cook. I still had to plan, shop, make salads and microwave.
Thursday, we had to eat early to be on time for Frank's band concert. We had a precooked chicken and potato salad from the deli section, and a bag of Broccoli Wokly. Normally I cut up my own veggies but I was lazy. These broccoli florets cooked in 4 minutes, were very tender, but had the faintest tang of plastic.
Friday, a "buffet" night consisting of many entrees I cooked last week: spaghetti, red enchilada casserole, quiche with ham (yet another leftover), boeuf bourguignon. Yes, I made a salad.
Saturday, I was watching (not babysitting because Mr. Thomas is NOT a baby) the nephews until dinnertime, so the handy husband cooked pork chops. He has a talent for making stuff stick to a non-stick pan. I know, I washed the pan. Served with homemade mashed potatoes and peas.
Sunday, the handy husband barbecued his tasty tri-tip. Served with canned chili beans and another salad. The classic Santa Maria Style Barbecue.
Tomorrow I am back on the hook for another week of meals. I get in a rut sometimes. Any suggestions for easy recipes?
