Well, I must say I learned my lesson last week when I turned on the oven and roasted some chickens. It took hours to cool the house down. The dog days of summer end this week, and not a moment too soon! Around here it’s either blistering heat or flooding. Mostly heat.
So, stovetop cooking it is!
Sunday: Rotisserie Chickens from Costco, froz. veggies.
Monday: Taco salad – meat, beans, cheese, and a variety of veggies.
Tuesday: Lentil sloppy joes. Well, half and half meat/lentil. Meat is getting so expensive, this is a good way to make it stretch. I bought whole wheat bolillo rolls, they are cheaper (and bigger!) than whole wheat hamburger buns.
Wednesday: Peanut chicken with crunchy veggies over soba. OK, not real soba, but whole wheat spaghetti for an easy to find, inexpensive subsitute.
Thursday: Hearty grain salad – quinoa, brown rice, vinaigrette, various veggies. May or may not add chicken.
Friday: Fish tacos, cole slaw, coconut rice
Saturday: Spinach-pumpkin seed pesto pasta with grilled chicken. I really don’t like basil, but I think spinach and parmesan makes a nice pesto-type sauce. And I read a recipe for pesto using pumpkin seeds that sounded intriguing. If it turns out, I’ll post the recipe.
Do get ever get inspired and combine recipes? Do they turn out?
