Greek Dinner, Crab Cakes, Chili, Stuffed Chicken Breasts
I also took out a piece of venison and it was too much for just chili for two, so I cooked a few venison steaks, after marinating in wine, extra virgin olive oil, rosemary, thyme and garlic and served with roasted potatoes and a salad.
We've had crab cakes. I also tried a recipe for chicken breasts, pounded and stuffed with a mixture of goat cheese, roasted pepper and olives and rolled, grilled and served with a pablano, cilantro sauce (Bobby Flay's recipe). It was pretty good but might be better after the flavors have a chance to merge and it gets reheated. We just had veal marsala for lunch and it was better than when we had it for dinner. It was served with a celery risotto and braised leeks. Have you had braised leeks? It is very simple. It is our recipe of the week at our website this week: swankcatering website. It is a great accompaniment to many dinners.
We don't eat like this every night but almost. We actually had hot dogs one night (yes, we like them too and buy them; don't make them but don’t tell anyone that everything we do isn’t from scratch! ha!) Yes, we buy the fat free ones and make the chili and sometimes the mustard and catsup to go on them. This time we had them with pasta with garlic, olice oil and broccoli raab from the garden, topped with lots of mozzarella.
We’re eating well in Carolina. We hope you are, wherever you are! We’d love to hear from you. Check out our website for recipes, menu ideas, and how to contact us.
