Last night we had ribeye steaks that Thomas barbequed (they were on sale at Safeway), garlic bread (he barbequed that too), and spaghetti squash with pesto. It was all delicious.
Tonight we had chicken picatta using this this recipe. Rather than make the brown rice with lima beans from the recipe (both items I don’t like) I made orzo pasta with peas. The chicken was good but the pasta was sort of bland. Thomas suggested maybe adding some herbage to the pasta. I thought maybe some thyme.
Tomorrow Thomas has a Relay for Life meeting so it’s just me for dinner so I’ll probably have leftovers.
Thursday we have the boys and I am making pot roast. It’s my mom’s recipe and I just love it. You use the pressure cooker rather than the crock pot. You cut the meat into manageable pieces and brown it in the pressure cooker. You add thyme, marjoram, bay leaf, a can of beef consomme, a half a can of water and a half a can of wine. Then you pressure cook it for 20 minutes. Then you add an onion, a few potatoes, and a few carrots and pressure cook it for 8 minutes. Yummy!
Friday I think we’ll have the Boboli pizza I got.
What are you having for dinner this week? Anything good that I can have the recipe for?
