and various early birthdays, especially now that the time when all my birdies are in the nest feels so finite.
Baby Birdie's wings seem to grow by leaps and bounds every day.
So it was nice to take the MLK break and really get going again. There is something very satisfying about setting out a good meal to eat with the family. Here's what's cooking this week.
Proper Sunday Meal
Husband roasted a chicken and butternut squash, and rounded it out with rice and salad.
Carnivore Husband's Experiment with Butter Chicken Sauce. Tofu with carrots, zukes, and onions with garlic naan turned out pretty well for jar-food.
On my day off, I made granola, roasted tomatoes and tried out a new technique for chicken stock more or less based the Barefoot Contessa.
Chicken Divan with a chicken leg from Sunday. A welcome return from Las Vegas food and Holiday food. I was so excited
to cook, I made a 9 x 13 pan's worth for three people!
Ladies Who Dinner Wednesday
Out to dinner with an AWESOME group of moms that I have known since our collective birdies were just litter peepers. Part of feeding my ohana is being with my ohana and we've all watched out kids grow up as we did too.
BBQ Crockpot pork pizza. Husband (do you see the trend here?) tried out a new recipe for pork and we'll used the rest of it, plus shredded cabbage and sharp cheddar to make a variation on BBQ chicken pizza. Should be good.
Chicken Barley Soup with the above-noted chicken stock. Husband mistakenly made barley for dinner instead of rice...
Have a good week all!
