So tonight I cooked without recipes Of course the frozen stuffed chicken breast was a no brainer - you just put it in the oven and 30 minutes later it is done.
I needed to use up some of the produce from the Co-op before the next delivery on Tuesday. I had a head of cauliflower - we really like it roasted - and some red potatoes plus green pepper and red onion. I have often had fried potatoes at work with pepper and onion but had never made fried potatoes from fresh. I always use leftover boiled or baked potatoes and slice them to fry.
I cut up some onion (1/2 medium) and green pepper (1/2 of a huge pepper) in slices and then took the red potatoes - about 10 that were golf ball size - after washing them well I slice them between 1/8 and 1/4 inch rounds. Mixed that all together in a bowl and drizzled with some olive oil (a good healthy drizzle). I added some salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Threw that all in a large skillet and put over medium heat. Just let it cook and stirred it every so often - a few of the potatoes stuck a little so I had to scrap them off the pan when I stirred but that was fine. It probably cooked for about a half hour - and perfect!
I love cooking when I don't need a recipe :-)
Oh - and the roasted cauliflower. Cut up a head of cauliflower, drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle on a little salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes - or until there is some browning on the edges. I sprinkle some parmesan cheese over it while it was still hot - yummy!
And this was my dessert -
Homemade honey wheat bread (made yesterday in the bread machine) with butter and homemade raspberry jelly ( a gift from DH's co-worker last summer).
