I’m doing it again!(: I’ve cooked two meals this week!!! [and it’s only Wednesday morning!]
Monday night was a fun night. I made my Ham Tortellini!(: Yumm! It was delicious, and there was NO left overs! I love it when that happens!
So, last night was an… amazingly fun night! And I am going to tell you all about it!…
So I started off making Garlic & Butter mashed potatoes. Can’t get any better than that right? I pretty much made them just like an other mashed potato. Boil the potatoes, with a little garlic unitl fork tender, add some milk & butter, and mash it together. They were a little runny, but that was because I put a little too much milk. Before they were served, I put a little bit of dried basil leaves in it, to give it some more flavor.
Well, while these were cooking, I was preparing my Stuffed Chicken with Bacon, Provolone Cheese, & Spinach. I butterflied (or attempted to butterfly) my chicken tenderloins [which were supposed to be breast, but ahemm… mom got the wrong kind!…]. So, as I got all the chicken prepared, and cut, I realized that the sauce I needed to use for this dish was in my moms car… & she was gone. So I stuffed all my chicken, then just waited. And finally she got home, so then I could move on. So with my bacon, cheese & spinach stuffed chicken, and I put a little Slap Ya Momma seasoning sauce on them. Now this Slap Ya Momma stuff is really hot, so you only need a little but. There is a season powder & a sauce. I used the sauce since that was all we had. It still worked out though!(: So once those were covered with sauce, I put then in a pan with a little hot oil, & sauted them for a few minutes. Once they were brown on both sides, I added 2 and a half cups of vegetable broth (should be chicken, but I didn’t have any), & 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to the chicken in the pan. I stirred it around, then put a lid on it & cooked that for 10 minutes on a low heat. After the ten minutes were done, those stuffed chickens looked & smelled divine! I put them on a plate & left the liquid in there, added a little heatt & flour & let it stay at a rapid boil for a few minutes & made a delicious sauce to go with the potatoes, veggies & chicken. It was amazing! So there ya have it! I’m a Junior Chef again!(: Yay!
So, this might be like the 2 & only meals I’ll be cooking this week, because as of Friday & Saturday I will be busy with Senior Regionals Orchestra! Oh yeah! I actually auditioned for it a few months ago, but that was only to determine it I would make it into the orchestra. On Friday are seating auditions, & I’m really hoping to get first chair, so wish me luck!(:
Thanks for reading… (If I even have readers! lol!)
