I cooked the co-op asparagus on Monday. Usually I do it in a fry-pan on the stove top. This time, I put it in a stone cooking dish and “roasted” it in the oven. I mixed it with a partial jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil. It was sublime! The children won’t eat it though. Which meant more for me! The chicken was pretty ordinary. Just some boneless skinless breasts cooked in the iron skillet with seasoning in a little olive oil and some Pinot Grigio that we still have left over from Christmas. It was tasty, but not very special. I cook it roughly that way a lot. I love when we get mushrooms from the co-op! I adore mushrooms. So I added them to the crockpot when I made the roast. The pot roast went over about as well as it usually does. The little ones liked the flavor, the teen loved it all, the husband hated it. I didn’t care. They ate anyway because it was all I prepared! I used leftover pot roast in the next night’s dinner. I sauteed some Kale, garlic, scallions and broccoli in olive oil, then added sliced roast beef and the leftover beef juice. As it cooked down, I added teriyaki to the pan and let it simmer a while. I served it over brown rice. My smaller son loved it. My daughter didn’t. I like it quite a bit and it all got eaten except a little rice. The tilapia didn’t go over well. My teenager liked it and I liked it, but no one else did. It was good, I lightly breaded it with Italian flavored bread crumb, added dill and Nature’s Seasonings and cooked it in an oiled fry pan. Not enough oil for real frying, just a coating on the bottom. Turned out great. I used the hand mixer on the leftover potatoes and carrots from the pot roast. I added the last of the broth from that too and then some shredded mozzerella. Very tasty.
