what’s cookin’?



Apparently yesterday my post didn’t upload so here we go again.

Sunday:  Mother’s Day  my boys treated me to a day of being lazy at home.  They cooked and did yard work and let Mama take it easy.  Here’s what they made me for dinner.

Grilled Steaks

Focaccia Bread

Roasted Brussels Sprouts in EVOO and garlic 

Cesar Salad

Green Beans

Baked Sweet Potato

Cabernet Sauvignon

Monday:  Black Beans and Rice with Corn, Tomato and Feta Salad

Tuesday: Ranch Roasted Chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans

Wednesday:  Chicken Corn Chowder, Tomato Salad {I am using the remainder of the chicken from Tuesday for this}

Chicken Corn Chowder

1 box of reduced sodium Chicken Broth ( If you have some in the freezer that you made even better)

1 bag of frozen hash browns

1 small bag of frozen corn

4 Tbsp. of white gravy mix

2 cups shredded Chicken

Put broth, potatoes and corn in pan.  Heat through.  Adding more chicken broth if needed.  Add gravy mix.  Stir to thickens.  Add chicken and there you go.  Could it be more simple?

Thursday:  Grampie and Grandma are in town from Austin for my nephews graduation.  We will be grilling.

Turkey Burgers, Roasted Sweet Potato Fries and Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Friday:  We will be seeing how the day goes Smile

Saturday: Nate’s Graduation Party
