Last Monday was Memorial Day, and we were hiking most of the day. By the time we got back home, it was too late too cook, and I was too tired. So we ate leftover homemade pizza and I made a quick microwave quesedilla with some fresh avocado slices. The rest of our meals were great:
Warm steak and potato salad (Melissa D'Arabian)
Quiche: I made the usual spinach-mozzarella, but wanted to try something new on the second pie. I had been inspired by a Rachael Ray frittata recipe; so I made Brussels sprouts-scallion-feta quiche. I thought it was really good for a change. Ben liked it too.
Indian spice curry chicken and veggies
This was my first time making Indian food. It was delicious, and Ben loved it too! (The curry powder was from a friend who is from India.)
We went out for Mexican on Friday night and had lots of leftovers, which we saved for our late Sunday night dinner after church. Ben had the Cuban sandwich and I had chicken fajitas with house-made corn tortillas. Yum!
I am doing some freezer meals this week to have on-hand for my close friend who is getting very close to her due date with her third baby boy and for my mom, who is having surgery next week. I will be making breakfast casserole, broccoli cheese soup, and a chicken dish (haven't decided yet). I will probably also make some muffins for each of them when the time comes.
Our menu at home this week will look something like this:
Grilled honey lime chicken sandwiches with sweet potato fries
Broccoli cheese soup
Something in Ben's smoker for the weekend
Do you have any homemade freezer meals that you love? With chicken?
Do you like to venture out and try new cuisines? or do you stick with what you know?
