Last week I cooked from the 8x8 Cookbook that I had been given for Christmas and I have to say that I am a hug fan.
A few times I even doubled the recipe so that we would have enough for leftovers/lunches the following day.
Here are all of the yummy dishes that I made:
MONDAY: Honey-Glazed Chicken with Root Vegetables (p.7) -- I doubled the recipe for this one and used boneless-skinless chicken thighs in place of drumsticks. SOOO perfect! This would be a great meal for company
TUESDAY: Turkey-Stuffed Zucchini (p.21) --Made this the night before up until the point where you put it in the oven. I knew that we were going to have a lot going on this afternoon so it was nice to know that the meal was mostly ready. Everyone loved this meal... It was a lot like a stuffed pepper but with yummy zucchini!
WEDNESDAY: Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders (p.27)-- Gibson had physical therapy this night so it was so easy to assemble before the therapist came and I just popped into the oven after she left... be sure to buy DILL pickles, as the recipe calls for, I accidentally bought bread and butter pickles. EWWW. Next time I would add more cheese and use a honey mustard.
THURSDAY: Leftovers for the family while I was out saying good-bye to a friend that is taking the plunge and moving to California!
FRIDAY: Pan Roasted Pork Chops with Apples and Couscous (p.25) -- I love a combination of pork chops and apple! WINNING... I used Israeli Couscous.
SATURDAY: Roasted Cod with Gremolata and Lemony Orzo (p.37)-- Made this when we had company. It was really yummy... forgot to take a photo though. SAD FACE... but here are some pretty flowers that I arranged for the table.
We had leftovers on Sunday to clear out our fridge before we went out of town to Colorado for the week!!! Photos from the trip tomorrow!
