Default Re: June Dinners. What are you cooking?

I pulled a few recipes together and made a sort of casserole. I mixed mayonnaise with rice and put into a baking dish with some leftover cooked vegetables and some white wine and water. I put a couple of chicken breasts on top of it with some salt and parsley and then dumped a bunch of parmesan cheese on top of it. I baked it until it looked done and it turned out reasonably well. Jacob and James liked it, Ivy choked it down with minimal complaining and I thought it was decent.

Default Re: June Dinners. What are you cooking?

I've been on an Instant Pot kick lately. I'm having a hard time calling it cooking when all I do is dump things in the IP, set it and walk away.

Yesterday the oldest asked for Buffalo Cheesy Chicken (chicken breasts, cream cheese, Frank's hot sauce, onions, garlic, parsley, butter, oregano). I shred the chicken and mix everything together after it's cooked and let it sit Keep Warm until we're ready to eat. Steamed broccoli, cucumber salad, and oven-fried corn tortillas on the side rounded things out last night.

Tonight we're having IP Beef and Bean Chili and cornbread. (I put chipotle powder and corn kernels in the cornbread for dh and bake it in mini tube pans so it gets lots of crusty edges that the kids like.)

Tomorrow night is Muffaletta night. It isn't really authentic Central Grocery, but what my kids will eat - my faux olive tapenade and their favorite cold cuts.

I'm in a rut. Last night was chili & cornbread (IP chili).

Tonight dd is making burrito stuff - red beans & rice from a box and refried beans.

I have no oompf to make a meal plan, so I'm picking something "easy" at 5pm. Ah well, everyone is fed, right?

Pork tenderloin, baby potatoes, peas and carrots. My dh requested eggs, bacon, and pancakes for dinner tomorrow night. I'll add strawberries.

This is the one I used:
https://www.skinnytaste.com/thai-basil-chicken/
I love it and it's super easy. DH is on Weight Watchers so I use this website almost exclusively for our dinners.

But I also have this one pinned:
https://thewoksoflife.com/thai-basil...en-pad-krapow/
I haven't made it but it has a lot of excellent reviews, which is how I generally choose recipes.

DH made basil lemon pork chops on the grill. I don't like pork, normally, but this recipe is fantastic and could be done with chicken, too. It's similar to pesto but without the expensive pine nuts, no dairy, and lemon added. This is the recipe he used. I buy the hydroponic basil, much cheaper than the clamshell basil. I use LOTS of basil.

Tonight I'm making a frittata as we're over run with eggs. Cheese, onions, chives, and eggs.

Tomorrow I'm making Vietnamese caramel chicken. We're having a cold snap this weekend!
