Meatless Monday: I made pressure cooker black beans with onions, sweet peppers, and garlic, just pressure cooked them all together (with water) for 20 minutes, meanwhile preparing yellow rice with tomatoes and carrots, then a side of steamed yellow squash seasoned with adobo. Served each plate with a simple green salad and a sprinkle of cheese over the beans and rice.
Tuesday: Hamburger patties (seasoned with salt, pepper, chopped onion and worcestershire sauce) cooked in my grill pan, microwaved baked potatoes and steamed cauliflower. It was a HUGE cauliflower and I only lightly steamed it so I have leftovers for tonight's dinner.
Wednesday: Chicken cordon bleu (sorta) made with pounded flat chicken breasts, slices of ham and provolone cheese (I lacked swiss), rolled them up, secured with toothpicks and brushed the tops with beaten egg and topped with bread crumbs, bake for 25-35 minutes at 400 degrees, (depends on size of breasts). Took the leftover cauliflower and broke it into smaller florets, sprayed them with olive oil and sprinkled with salt I put it into the oven with the chicken at the 10 minute mark. They should be done simultaneously. Warmed up yellow squash will be our other side dish.
Still in the midst of moving and various types of chaos (selling a car, buying a car, traveling to various children's birthday parties several miles and counties away). Sorry for the light posts, but hopefully the menus can be at least a little bit of inspiration in the nightly mantra of "What's for dinner?!"
