Phew! I made it through another week and now I have a long weekend. Yay!
Let's see, what did we eat this week? Monday we had Baked Ziti and garlic bread, with salad.
Tuesday we had chicken and filling (also known as dressing or stuffing). I make great filling if I do say so myself. I just had some plain chicken breasts so I decided to cook them - in canned soup! Ha! Take that, nasty commenter. I mixed cream of chicken soup with milk and some parmesan cheese. It kept the chicken moist. Important since it cooked the night before and reheated when we ate it.
Wednesday was a delicious rerun - Sweet-Sour Pork on Rice.
I used the last of my peach preserves from last year in that recipe. I'm sad I didn't get to can anything this year but I just couldn't get any canning done with the new baby.
Last night we had the enchiladas which turned out better than I expected. I knew the enchilada sauce tasted good but there wasn't much else to them - just multi-grain tortillas, queso fresco and shredded chicken. I wanted sour cream but I didn't have any. I used some thick ranch dip instead and it wasn't a bad substitution. They would have been better with corn tortillas but at least the multi-grain ones didn't get too soggy, which I was worried about. Cooking ahead is always a crap shoot.
Tonight will be pizza.
Today is my birthday. I turn 39 for the first time (but possibly not the last time LOL!). All I want for my birthday is a comment, from each of my regular commenters and from every other single person reading this. Is that really too much to ask? Please, pretty please.
