Chicken, rice, and green beans.

Okay, that sounds bland and boring

Here's what I did...
Heated some olive oil in a cast iron skillet with a few drops of liquid smoke, Essence, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, and Celtic sea salt for 5-10 minutes.
Sauteed chopped chicken breasts in the seasoned oil, then removed with a slotted spoon.
Added cooked green beans and sauteed until slightly browned.
Combined chicken, green beans, seasoned oil, and cooked, hot, brown rice.
Served to myself and two hungry, growing boys!

That sounds much more interesting

We had baked ranch chicken thighs and yellow squash "noodles" in a creamy feta sauce with peas for those who don't eat the squash.

The yellow squash and zucchini in our garden are out of control again, and the squash I used tonight were pretty big. The skin was so tough I had to peel them! The noodles were firm had a really nice chew to them, though. They soaked up the sauce and were quite yummy!

Do you have a recipe for squash noodles in a creamy feta sauce? Sounds delicious.

I made it up. I started with a bechamel (1.5 t butter, 1.5 T flour, but you can use cornstarch), but used half milk and half chicken stock for the liquid (total 2 cups), salt and pepper to taste, a pinch of onion . (1 t?), garlic (1/2t?), and paprika powders (1/2 t?). I added feta cheese jut before serving. Mixed most of the sauce into the noodles, served the rest like gravy. Saute the noodles first in a tsp or so of EVOO to soften them and cook off the water in them, then add the sauce.

The yellow squash were two huge ones from my garden. I didn't weight them, but I'd say they equaled probably 4 (or 5?) med ones from the grocery store. I'm guessing here, but I'd say it was 6 cups of noodles before cooking.

I really should be more precise in my experimenting. My dh loves to chide me about it. Unless I write it down, experiments just don't turn out the same way twice. Eventually I remember, but for instance, the the first five versions of "Alligator Pie" were wildly different!

That looks good. Thanks for the recipe. I don't cook with measurements either and use recipes as guidelines so yes, experimenting can be quite interesting trying to make the same dish twice.

Made sheet pan chicken fajitas again last night, missionary friends stayed overnight. Everyone loved it and it didn't take long to make.

Leftovers tonight.

Tomorrow is sheet pan cashew chicken.

After that it's figuring things it from the freezer and pantry. Plus the garden is exploding with tomatoes.

I think we are doing sandwiches tonight - not something I ever do really but I'm super hungry for a sandwich I used to get at an Italian place downtown: prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato and fresh basil. Or maybe pesto. Either way, I've got both.
