Home Ec Review Assignment #1. A hodge-podge I've made before called "Philly stir-fry." For the entire family, I used only one Cajun and one Sheboygan sausage from the newly re-opened Dittmer's in Mountain View, CA. I sliced the sausages very thinly and then stir-fried them with onions, mushrooms and green and yellow peppers. This way, the sausages are really a flavoring agent, rather then the centerpiece of the meal. The children eat a lot of veggies this way. We ate it over rice and a bit of sriracha sauce. Leftovers will be eaten Philly cheesesteak-style in a traditional sandwich roll for lunches. Started at 5:45 pm and eating at 6:30 pm
Science Experiment #1. Egg and chunky tomato sauce and chard topped with bread crumbs and parmesan. I'm working on this as a kind of Italian loco-moco. This is an amalgamation of two recipes, one from Gale Gand's Brunch!, and one from Cooking Light. This could turn out spectacularly or not, but that's the fun of it.
Economics 101. Costco Chicken. I *LOVE* when Feeding My Ohana-ites send me suggestions. Keep 'em coming! This week, I received guidance on how to use Costco chicken bones to make jook (Chinese rice porridge), and this sounds too good to pass up. I may even buy two so that I'll have extra for chicken salad sandwiches and for Friday's Tortilla Soup. 3-4 meals on 2 chickens!
Editing Assignment #1. Ginger cilantro fish, possibly with chicken. I'm cleaning out the Greenhouse and will probably transition this page to my Pinterest board. It's time for this one to put up or be purged.
Economics 202. Chicken Tortilla Soup, with the rest of the Costco chicken.
Extra Credit for the Afternoon Teenager Feeding
Spinach dip, pre-packaged snow peas and baby carrots. I used Knorr's as the starter pack.
Fresh jalapeno/jack cheese tamales from Whole Foods
Crackers and cheddar cheese
Yogurt, nuts and fresh berries
White Cheddar Cheezits, but only because they are on sale
Li-hing pineapple if I can find a good one. My girlfriend made this over the weekend and I need to eat it again.
