Week 4, Day 4

It is Thursday already!  Why does time move so quickly?  Life is so sweet right now.  We have a 13 1/2 year old daughter and an 11 1/2 year old son.  They are independent enough to take care of things on their own and dependent enough to make me feel needed. It is a great balance. Our daughter does most of the cooking at our house, but our son is coming along with his cooking skills as well, and is doing most of the prep work now. The kid knows his way around a knife!  Our girl has a great sense for balancing flavors and enjoys tweaking things to offer new interpretations of old dishes. Learning to blend flavors is a big step toward success in the kitchen.

Raisin Toast
Eggs – with green onions and little bit of cheese

Homemade Sloppy Joes – Brown the ground beef, add cumin, coriander, paprika, celery salt, 1 TBS of brown sugar (raw). Stir in a can of diced tomatoes and let simmer for about 30 min to cook out a bit of the water.
Homemade Chebe rolls. YUM!!!  These things are terrific!
Carrot sticks

Chicken Thighs – smear about 1 tsp of mayo on each thigh, sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning and parmessan cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 min or until internal temp is 165.
Green Beans
Potatoes – boiled with a little salt and pepper

See you Tomorrow.
