Cooking With Refogado

Cooking With Refogado

Earlier this week I told you about making up Sofrito or Refogado. Today I want to give you a recipe to use with your Refogado and the rest of the Friday menu. Enjoy!

The Menu is…

Chicken Refogado

Feed Them Salad on Friday, Or, It’s Too Hot To Cook

Feed Them Salad on Friday, Or, It’s Too Hot To Cook

Today is Friday and it’s time to feed you. But, it’s too hot to cook at my house, so you’re getting salad! Healthy, quick and something for everyone, salads are a great solution when it’s too hot to cook!

It’s Too Hot to Cook!

The Feed Me Friday Menu is as follows:

Asian Chicken Salad Sandwiches

 Chickpea Salad with Herbs

Kiwi Fruit Salad with Lemon and Honey

Watermelon Sorbet

White Punch Sangria or Family Punch 

 

Let’s start off with a family favorite. Asian Chicken Salad Sandwiches. This is a healthy option as it has plenty of vitamins and no mayo, using instead a vinegrette dressing that is delicious. Here’s what you’ll need:

Hot-Hot-Hot Friday Menu

Hot-Hot-Hot Friday Menu

It’s Hot-Hot-Hot here in Texas! Although not nearly as hot as last year, and 100% more moisture, so there’s that! I have a Friday Menu that is sure to please for a summer day.

So, what’s on the menu? Something to cool us down is a good idea I think. Also, I have a treat for you, I’m giving you all of the recipes instead of just one today. = ) (That KeriAnne is so paisley and sweet!)

Is it Time to Feed You Again?

Is it Time to Feed You Again?

Friday seems to come faster and faster these days. = ) Is it time to feed you again?

Today I have a Gunz creation that has morphed into a fun, easy tradition.

It’s Friday, it must be time to feed you again!

Tuesdays are omelet day at the Gunz’. Each person fills out their “order” sheet that includes all of the ingredients on hand for fillers and each person gets a personalized omelet. There is even a fill in section for “extras” I may have forgotten to list. I draw the line at peanut butter, you’ll have to spread that on yourself. Some winner combinations included Durkee onion rings (you know, the kind you put on green bean casserole?) and cheddar cheese. Some incredible fail combos included Spagettio’s, let’s just say, it wasn’t pretty, and the recipient ended up with a mushroom and Swiss in the end.

This time honored tradition has been followed with other “You Build It” variations. Friday is usually homemade pizza day. You pick your topping, I make pan size crusts, you build your pizza, the Parsnip cooks them (because he doesn’t scoff at lifting out the pizza stone a dozen times, especially when homemade pizza is involved).

Our most recent build it yourself involves sliders made to order. We use King rolls for buns or sometimes I make them. In a pinch we have used English Muffins with good results.

Feed Me! (It must be Friday) An Easy Chicken Nugget recipe

Feed Me! (It must be Friday) An Easy Chicken Nugget recipe

My family is not crazy about chicken nuggets. (I know, they’re weird) However, I have an easy chicken nugget recipe that they think is the bees knees.

A few years ago, a lapse in shopping created this strange vacuum that threatened to starve my children to death (very dramatic). It seemed we had very few things with which to make a supper. We had the box store size bag of chicken nuggets, two jars of homemade spaghetti sauce and some cheese. This easy peasy recipe was born from that fateful day.

This is great for date night, whip up this easy chicken nugget recipe before you and the hubby go out. Win-win.

Feed Me, Friday!

Feed Me, Friday!

First off I want to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes yesterday! I had a great day, I feel loved and blessed.

Next, Friday is usually Stuff you Missed in Botany. I’m giving you the summer off, for good behavior. Although my kids still have school in the summer, you will not. = )

I have been asked on several occasions to add more recipes, so, I aim to please!

Friday is going to be Feed Me, Friday! until the end of summer. I plan to have recipes and menus fit for several occasions, and always with a paisley twist.

The Friday Menu will have recipes for at least one of the items.
