Love it

I’m really not in the mood to cook in this heat-especially since we’ve been having the opening season of monsoons.

My hair looks as if Shirley Temple is coming back from the dead on my head.  sigh.

With the heat, the humidity and my structural frailties in mind-almost everything is being done in the simplest way possible.

But, this is a big but-we bought some thin chicken breasts and they just can’t go on the grill.  I thought they’d be just a might thicker.  

Since we bought quite a lot and I packaged them all separately, I realized that I’m going to have to be a bit more creative if we don’t want to eat shoe leather.

Tonight?  Right now they‘re marinating in some vinaigrette.  Later (as in 20 minutes before dh walks in the door) I’ll chop up some spinach and shred some carrots and roll it up into the breasts.  I’ll give them a quick dredging in some panko and pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes.

This will allow the meat to stay flavorful and moist and get some more veggies into dinner.

The rest of the meal will be leftovers from last night’s BBQ.
Cole slaw with apples and noodle kugel.

BTW-Jackson ate the kugel for the first time and didn’t drop a single drop of it!  Seems he takes after his mom and dad!  For 11 months old he already loves most table foods he’s tried.

Good for him!  He gave broccoli as many “hmmm, hmmms” as the kugel and despite the faces over the raspberry sorbet-he didn’t want Sam to stop giving him more.

Hopefully this keeps up-in the meantime, I hope your 4th was safe, tasty and fun.

Love it
