Today is an easy one for dinner. 80+ degrees here today so the grill will be going. Pizza for tonight and chipotle crusted pork for tacos on Cinco de Mayo later this week.
I grilled up chicken breasts yesterday for sandwiches and BBQ’d some thighs. i hope grilling weather is here to stay!May 2, 2021 at 4:24 pm #29793
That sounds delicious, Rottiedogs!
On Sunday, I made another batch of yogurt.
Dinner tonight will be leftover pizza, quick and easy.May 3, 2021 at 8:20 am #29795

The rest of the week is supposed to be cool (highs in the mid 60’s and lows in the 40’s) so I’m making about 5 quarts of potato-leek soup today, with Challah croutons.May 3, 2021 at 5:29 pm #29799
We had fried cubed pork,leftover green lima beans and thickened potatoes.May 3, 2021 at 5:57 pm #29800chocomouseParticipant
Salads tonight: seafood, broccoli, potato, and cole slaw.May 3, 2021 at 7:02 pm #29801
Joan–I hope that your sister is doing better.
For dinner on Monday, I roasted a chicken and tried a new method. I started it at 450F for 20 minutes, then reduced the temperature to 350F for an hour and 40 minutes when it tested done. It had crispier skin (which alas, I cannot eat) and the chicken was moist. I also roasted sweet potato chunks tossed in olive oil in my small convection oven. A mixed salad rounded out the meal.May 3, 2021 at 10:06 pm #29804
Thanks BakerAunt,her COPD is really bad.May 4, 2021 at 10:54 am #29808JaniebakesParticipant
We eat our main meal midday. Dinner today is poached eggs nested over a tomato/blackbean mix spiced with mild green chilis, chili powder and cumin. One corn tortilla each and fruit salad round it all out.May 4, 2021 at 4:49 pm #29810
We had fried chicken breast,rice & tomato gravy with leftover dried lima beans.May 4, 2021 at 5:43 pm #29811chocomouseParticipant
We had liver, sauteed onions, potatoes (cooked successfully in the air fryer!) and cole slaw. This used to be one of our favorite meals, but we haven’t had it for well over a year.May 4, 2021 at 6:18 pm #29812
To go with leftover roast chicken on Tuesday, I boiled some quartered red potatoes, unpeeled, then coarsely mashed them with a bit of salt and Greek yogurt. I had made gravy last night from the pan drippings, so we had that over the potatoes. Microwaved fresh broccoli completed the main meal. For dessert, I pulled out the last small apple-barley cake from the freezer.May 4, 2021 at 8:18 pm #29813cwcdesignParticipant
Joan, I’m sorry to hear about your sister. I hope she is able to be comfortable.
Tomatillos were on sale at Harris Teeter, so I made enchiladas verdes (a day early). My recipe is usually just cheese, but we had leftover grilled chicken so I shredded that to add to the filling. Will made tortillas on Sunday so we used some of those.it was really good and we have leftovers for tomorrow.May 5, 2021 at 4:51 pm #29817
