Is this weekend really almost over already? Time flies. I’m gearing up for the Desperate Housewives finale tonight then it’s back to the grind. Ok, onto the food…
For dinner yesterday, I made an easy chicken dish from Emeril along with a Berry Goat Cheese Salad, a recipe I found on the Whole Foods website a while ago. The chicken dish was simple but flavorful (I marinated the chicken for almost four hours, as the recipe suggests). I also used chicken breasts instead of thighs and baked the chicken instead of grilling it. Very tasty and moist!
For a side dish, I made the berry salad which was excellent. I love berries, not only are they tasty but also a sign of summer! All berries were on sale at Stop & Shop yesterday so blueberries, blackberries and raspberries all made it into the salad. I wouldn’t normally think to mix berries, roasted onions and tomatoes together but it was great. The dressing was also simple to make and very complementary to the dish. I didn’t use quite as much goat cheese as the recipe suggested but it was still plenty. I do love cheese! 🙂
Because most of my recipes make leftovers (like this one), it’s always great to have a quick meal for the next day. Today for dinner I made a dinner salad consisting of the leftover salad topped with chilled chicken. Yum! I will definitely make both dishes again, you just can’t go wrong, especially with the salad. Ok, no salad rant today, although I do seem to be on a salad kick these days!
Have a good Monday!
