After 23 years of marriage, i sometimes find myself in a rut when it comes to cooking.
But there will always be our family favorites.
- Roast and gravy with mashed potatoes and peas
- Spaghetti and meatballs,
- Red beans and rice (on Mondays of course, ain't that right Heather )
- chicken and dumplins and fried okra
Those dishes popped up once every two weeks or so. Especially when all 3 of my girls were still at home. Back then I made out my menus on Sunday night and cooked a big meal every night of the week...except for Saturdays..we usually ate leftovers. or cereal.
We almost always ate together at the table. That was a tradition I made sure our schedules gelled with.
I protected supper time something fierce. Such treasured times around the dinner table.... it was one of my favorite times of the day.
Lately, its just me and my hubs so I am having to completely revamp my cooking repertoire.
So........I'm having a blast trying the recipes that y'all have been posting.
It's called "Open-Faced Chicken Caprese Sandwiches" and I recommend you checking out her amazing tutorial she posted on how she fixed them!
Just click her mouthwatering picture right here...
We have a major abundance of tomatoes right now from our garden,
so when I saw this recipe I was like.."Yes!"
Just one of the four counters in my kitchen I had covered in tomatoes!!
Here is my version...before they went into the oven for their toasty yumminess.
I just used what I had on hand, so I put feta cheese on the bottom and fresh parmesean cheese on top.
I forgot to get bread and almost ditched the whole plan and then I was like... "Hey, I can so make my own bread." And that's what I did. I felt like the Proverbs 31 Woman. Yay me!
Here is a pic my hubs took of his plate. He's a instagrammer and proud of it! :)
Oh and that is fresh grown squash sautéed down in butter with onions by the way. Yum-O!
Thanks again Pamela for sharing this easy, delicious and oh so good for you recipe.
