Garganelli with Asparagus & Pecorino Cheese, Salad
A new favorite asparagus pasta recipe. As always, the key to a recipe with few ingredients is quality. I splurged on a nice block of pecorino cheese, and the asparagus is in-season and fresh. It was yummy.
Black Bean Quesadillas, Corn Salsa, Tortilla Chips and Guacamole
An old favorite that I haven't made as-written in a long time. I had forgotten how good these are, and I love baking the quesadillas so they're all ready at once. The boys didn't like the corn salsa, but that's okay. I did.
Honey Cashew Chicken with Rice
This was a big fat fail. Well, that's not true. It's a great recipe, and I enjoyed it very much. The boys were just cantankerous that night and were not cooperating. Nathan spent more time in time-out than he did eating dinner. Some nights, that's just the way it goes. (Note: In dishes like these, I use half the meat called for, and I only serve it to Aaron and Kevin.)
Turkey Reubens, Salad/Carrot Sticks
Another old favorite that I haven't made in a while. I made regular hot turkey and cheese sandwiches for the boys.
