Three different dinners

Our schedule for tonight was Caesar salad with leftover chicken.  That was what I had:

Caesar Salad

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • 1/4 cup good Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic pressed
  • 1 Egg (I use raw egg and have never had a problem)
  • Juice of 1 lemon or about 1 TB Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • Anchovies, optional
  • Croutons, optional

Combine olive oil and garlic and let sit for up to 4 hours.  Strain garlic, reserving olive oil.  Wash and dry lettuce and place in a bowl.  Grind pepper over lettuce and toss with oil.  Add egg and toss well.  Add lemon juice and toss.  Add parmesan cheese and toss.  Serve with anchovies and or croutons if desired.  Top with leftover chicken or other protein of your choice.

Keith liked last night’s skirt steak better than I did.  He decided to repurpose the leftovers as a steak fajita with refried beans.  More on the skirt steak in a future post after we have ironed out the wrinkles.

Samantha opted for chicken tenders.  Fortunately, Keith made his and Samantha was helpful this evening  – otherwise I would feel like a short-order cook!

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.
