I’m back from my vacation in Florida. I haven’t had a chance to look through the sales, gather up some recipes to exploit them and unpacking is more on my mind than refilling the fridge with good tidbits. I checked the drop freezer (which is almost empty and ready for some defrosting) and saw an old bag of chicken strips and an old bag of fries. Why not! I mixed together two leftover veggies to make green beans/corn. I’ll be making some ideas for the upcoming week this weekend.
Dinner: May 9, 2008
- Chicken strips
Chicken was to be cooked at 400 and the fries wanted 450 so I did them both on the same pan at 450 for 20 minutes. They didn’t mind and it was easy. Yay for easy. Boo for fries and chicken strips. 😉
- Seasoned fries
- Mixed green beans and corn
We’re gearing up for weekly farmers’ markets! And so many festivals and whatnot in the area. Decisions, decisions. At least, until it gets too hot. Thankfully, when I was in Florida, it was absolutely perfect weather. Not too hot and not too cold.
I visited many places including my first ever visit to an IKEA. I had a drink while there that was lingonberry. I had no idea what a lingonberry was but it was love at first sip. I found a bunch of these jars sitting there crying out to be photographed (and so that I wouldn’t forget what berry it was that whispered sweet nothings to my tongue).
