But I still managed to cook a good bit.
And this is what I made.
- Day #1 Chicken Parmigiana with Egg Noodles
This dinner came together quickly because last time I made this dish I double the sauce and stuck half in the freezer. So I literally had to cook the noodles and brown the chicken. I think it took about 15 minutes total.
I saw this chicken recipe on my Facebook feed on Wednesday, went to the grocery store on my lunch break for the ingredients, and made it for dinner. Talk about (almost) instant gratification. It was delicious. I LOVE incorporating pears into savory dishes. I will be making this one again. I think using bacon and Swiss cheese would be good too (and less expensive).
- Day #3 Cracked Pepper Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Corn with Sweet Bell Peppers
Three cheers for marinated pork tenderloin. I bought a seasoned pork tenderloin at Trader Joes and grilled it according to the directions. Added a mix of (frozen) roasted corn and peppers. Perfect for a Saturday since I had been painting ALL day.
I made this for Joe and I after church on Sunday because the kids weren’t around. I used a simple marinade recipe I found on allrecipes.com. It turned out well, especially considering I used frozen tuna steaks.
