Recently, I realized that my cooking is only so-so. This frustrates me to no end, since I have to do it so often. I thought that in order to fix that, I must practice, and practice a lot. So, I grabbed my cookbooks and looked at my favorite websites for recipes and added a few new things to my "foods to cook regularly" list. (and I just realized that I fried a lot of things last week. Healthy? Not even a little. Oopsie)
New yummy food #1 Zucchini patties. These are YUM. I love zucchini cooked just about any way, but this way is probably the yummiest (and probably the least healthy).
New yummy food #2 - Chicken fried steak. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of this, but I knew it was something Ross liked and it's a new food. It was a hit, Jude and Ross both loved it, and I didn't think it was that bad either. I got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman's cookbook (and the gravy recipe too), and it was spot on.
New yummy food #3 - Gravy. I had to make some gravy to go with our chicken fried steak. I'd never fixed gravy from scratch before, and it was so easy, and so good.
I had to smother my chicken fried steak in gravy. Anything smothered in gravy is G.O.O.D. (and I accidentally over roasted those veggies. I hate it when I do that!)
Yay for new foods! This coming week's menu isn't nearly as new or exploratory, but had to be made (and done easily), nonetheless. So, here it is!
Chicken with bowtie pasta in pesto sauce (bumped from last week)
Pork chops and mashed potatoes
BBQ Chicken & mac n cheese
Fish sandwiches & roasted veggies
Grilled cheese sandwiches with pesto & green beans
Dinner with small group
