I like to cook. Sometimes my daughter likes to eat.

Dinners Week of 02/22

o Sunday: Lamb steaks with Penzey's Greek Seasoning + Steamed Broccoli + Boiled Red Potatoes
These may be MZ's three favorite foods

o Monday: Butternut Squash and Turkey Sausage with Whole Wheat Fusilli + Green Salad
I was going to make this baked pasta recipe with cubed roasted butternut squash, but it seemed several steps too many. So I browned the bulk sausage, removed it from the pan, sauteed the onions, added the chard, squash, sausage and olives and some chicken broth and pasta water. Finished it with olive oil and lemon zest. It was delicious!

o Tuesday: Out for Papa's Birthday

o Wednesday: Chile Verde tacos with sour cream, salsa and cabbage slaw
Just one container of chile verde left in the freezer for another quickie dinner. This is the recipe from The Gourmet Slow Cooker Cookbook, made in a big batch and frozen.

o Thursday: Moroccan Chicken with Green Olives + Whole Wheat Couscous + Salad
This is the easiest recipe, I made it on Monday when I worked at home and it was delicious a few nights later. The chicken doesn't need browning yet the flavors are so rich. My only adjustment to the recipe is browning the onions first.

o Friday: Out

o Saturday: Bistro Salmon + Steamed Asparagus + Roasted Potatoes
This simply seared-then-baked salmon recipe in Bistro Cooking is amazing, it completely transforms the texture of the the salmon into something amazing.
