Cooking with gas
Been loving cooking with gas.
Monday's supper was a last minute substitution: a trip to Aldi's offered marked down, chicken Florentine ravioli in a homemade marinara, topped with additional Parmesan if desired
Sauteed Summer squash with peppers,onions, sauteed in reserved chicken fat, seasoned with no salt garlic-herb seasoning
The dregs of 2 bottled salad dressings were combined
creating a "house" Italian style dressing for a green salad
Home dried, organic lemon balm from last year's CSA was brewed into a lemon herbal tea, now chilled in the refrigerator
Tuesday's dinner ingredients: frozen Salmon fillets, orzo, the leftover squash from the night before (white topped container), 1/2 of a bag of sugar snap peas, some of the remaining bag of golden onion soup mix
I baked the Salmon off in the mini oven, seasoned it with dill, black pepper
The golden onion-butter seasoned orzo-pea side dish
