Sunday night dinner

Today was beautiful – hard to believe it is the middle of November.  It was warm and sunny and we spent the afternoon on the golf course.  Probably the last time until spring.  With cold weather coming, I’ll have plenty of Sunday afternoons to spend cooking.  Today I wanted to spend the day playing.  (That is why blog update is so late in the day.)  I had chipotle marinade in the fridge so I got some steaks and tossed the potatoes and garlic to roast.  Here is the chipotle marinade recipe:

Chipotle marinade 

  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 TB tomato juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 TB sherry vinegar
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  NOTE: Marinade keeps well in refrigerator and is delicious on beef, pork, chicken or shrimp.

Roasted garlic potatoes

  • 6 small Yukon gold or  12 small fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, cut in slices
  • 2 Tb olive oil

Scrub potatoes and toss in a bowl with remaining ingredients until all are well coated.  Preheat oven to 400.  Spread potatoes out in a ceramic baking dish and roast for 40 minutes, stirring once midway.  Serve with chicken or meat.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
