Summer special

Yum. Asparagus, Broccolini, Parmesan, Lemon...



Summer here we come. Looks like the new food plate, no? No, you're right it doesn't. Whatev, it was a weekend, At least it wasn't white chocolate chips and a bowl of pickles for dinner. No, I've never done that...
Asaparagus salad was planned. The remainer was improtomtu. That's ok. It's not like I follow directions anyways.



Salad. Delish. Seriously. Add this to your arsenal.




Lemon Chicken. Marinade includes freshly squeezed lemon, spicy mustard, EVOO, S&P, Shallot, Crushed garlic to taste and "honey". I subbed brown sugar. MF needs a better pantry. oh well. If you want protein powders you went to the right place ;) Cook the chicken in the marinade, covered, on the stove till done. Bam. Original recipe.




Clean out the fridge red potatoes: quartered potatoes, simmered for a while in water. Then I got bored and decided to just add stuff to the "cooking fluid"...to include : red and balsamic vin,  S&P, garlic, shallots, lemon leftovers. Obv you are going to follow this plan exactly and will have a bit of extra shallot from your asparagus goodness and some recently squeeze lemon exoskeletons...add em to the pot...why not.

Try it. It's healthy and easy. Trust me, because I'm a lazy lady and would not lead you astray.

Yum. MF is lucky to have a great impromptu cook like you. I do not have that 'let's look at what is in the fridge/pantry and come up with a great meal' ability. at all. I need a recipe and a trip to the grocery store. I am not very clever in the kitchen, but that is ok!

Yum!! That looks incredible. That asparagus salad looks great -- I need a new method of cooking asparagus, so will definitely be giving that a try next time I get a bunch!

"If you want protein powders you'd be in the right place". Haha! That is too funny. If it weren't for me, my husband would have our kitchen stalked with protein powder, frozen pizza, and steak.

Very lucky MF. Protein powders are a requirement in a healthy kitchen :)
