More cooking for friends this past Saturday, but without my special helpers this week. These ladies stay busy! When a girl has to get her hair done, then a girl has to get her hair done, right?!?!? And when Scout Camp calls, well – you do indeed answer!
But that did not stop me from forging ahead, alone – except for the Doggie Assistants, but all they want to do is play and help clean the floor, which does indeed save me time with final clean up!
Recipes for this session (all from EatingWell website) included:
The Quiche was turned into more of a frittata, since no crust was used, plus the Italian sausage was changed to ground turkey. Swiss cheese was the bubbly topping, and no breadcrumbs were added.
Next came the Asian Chicken, which smelled delish and (I’m told….) tasted “WOW” with no leftovers in sight. Substituted chicken drummets……these were prepared and put in the ‘fridge, so the entire family could enjoy them the next night for dinner.
On to the Roll-Ups. Turkey cutlets fit the bill, and these little babes sure looked stunning! Off to the freezer they went, four to a pack, to be enjoyed on another night.
Did I tell you about the 7 cups of brown rice that the rice cooker cooked while I did the above mentioned heavy lifting??!! If you don’t have a rice cooker, you are truly missing out on the most foolproof way to prepare rice. Plus, the extra is easily frozen for later use with those Roll-Ups. Now, that is my kinda morning – cooking for friends!
