Happy Monday, friends. I hope you’ve had a nice week. The fair will be coming up soon here. One of the girls is making yeast rolls this year, and I think we’re going with this one. This week, I think she’ll try one from a 4-H recipe book, which contains potato flakes and brown sugar. If any of you have a yeast roll recipe that you think is a real winner, feel free to pass it along in the comments. Thanks!
Monday: In honor of Prince William’s 32nd birthday, which was Saturday, how about his favorite recipe: Cottage Pie
Tuesday: Chicken Parmesan – an easy family favorite
1 jar marinara sauce
4 chicken breast halves
2/3 c. shredded mozzarella
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. olive oil
Pour marinara sauce in bottom of ungreased 12 x 8 dish.
Place chicken over sauce.
In small bowl, mix cheeses, bread crumbs and oil. Sprinkle evenly over chicken.
Bake at 350 30-35 min.
Serve over noodles.
Wednesday: Garden Pasta Bake – easy; combines pasta and veggies in a meatless dish
Thursday: Calico Beans
On Prince William’s actual birthday, we celebrated with gingerbread scones. Try them; they are delicious!
TORTILLA SOUP (yes, it’s summer, but one of the girls requested it and it should be fine, thanks to AC)
16 oz. refried beans
14.5 oz. chicken broth
5 oz. chunk chicken (I usually just cook 1 chicken breast)
15.5 oz. black beans, rinsed
3/4 cup salsa
Combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 min.
Crumble a few tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl.
Ladle soup over chips and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
What are you cooking this week?
