Default Re: June dinners

I made bread yesterday. So we are doing blt and sandwiches.

I also cooked extra chicken and potatoes this week. So we can eat chicken salid and potato salid.

I am planning on still doing things like cooking pasta for pasta salid on the stove top because gluten free pasta doesnt do well with going in the fridge and then holding together. If we could eat normal pasta I would have pre cooked it as well.


This afternoon before it gets too hot I am going to boil eggs for deviled eggs as a snack. And and I just realized I need to roast the walnuts to go in the chicken salid today as well.

I have no idea on dinner tonight. Supposed to be wicked hot here for the foreseeable future. I am not good with cool meals on hot days. Gotta make a plan. Suggestions welcome.
My kids always ask for Muffaletta when it gets super hot. I just use whatever cold cuts I have on hand, and use the condiments they like, so it's really not authentic, just a pressed sandwich. But they call it a Muffaletta anyway. The really nice part is that I can make it early in the day when I have the time, wrap it, and stick it in the fridge (usually under a gallon of milk to press it) and it's ready whenever they want to eat.

Salad Bar - with hard boiled eggs, cheese, and any leftover meats for the protein

Potato salad (steam the potatoes in the IP, then toss with lemon juice, lots of garlic, parsley and some EVOO. This dressing is also excellent on garbanzo or cannelini beans.)

Honestly, I use the Instant Pot or Crock Pot when it gets really hot, or go to Costco and get rotisserie chickens. Anything to avoid turning on the oven!

And as it's really hot here, We're having Muffalettas for dinner!

Last night I made Cheesy Chicken in the crockpot so I wouldn't have to turn on the oven. I was looking forward to leftovers for lunch, until I was told that they didn't make it into the fridge last night. <grumble>

Oh this happened to me the other day! I made ds cook dinner the next night since he was supposed to put the food away! But I was cranky I didn't get my leftovers!

Last night the Birthday Girl asked for Lemon Chicken Cutlets, Caprese Salad with Pesto (I was a Bad Mom and had her go pick her own basil ), and a Watermelon Shark in lieu of a cake.

Tonight we're having IP Beef Chili.

My Instant Pots have been getting a workout this week! We got a couple of those silicone egg bite pans and have used them to make not just egg bites, but cheesecake bites and pancake balls, both regular and GF. I can stack two pans in an 8qt IP; I'm wondering if I can get three?

Last night was buffalo chicken salads. Tonight I'm planning sheet pan sausage and peppers over cheesy grits and asparagus on the side.

We did chili and cornbread tonight. Iím running out of ideas for the large quantity of ground beef I need to use up.

Tacos, rice, homemade guacamole if the avocados aren't too over-ripe, and I'll add a salad with homemade ranch.

I tried a new recipe last night - enchilada pie https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/enchilada-pie The filling was really nice, but the tortillas were soggy and not so good. I think I'd make the filling again but probably make them as normal enchiladas.

Tonight I'm being lazy - store-bought burgers and buns, probably with salad and maybe sweet potato fries.

Lastnight we had spinach salid with bisalmic grilled chicken, strawberries and greasy figs.

I enjoyed the figs no one else did.
