Due to popular demand, I am posting a few of this week's recipes on my blog. I have gleaned these recipes from cookbooks and from the internet.
Thai Peanut Noodles:
1 pound chicken
1 cup light Italian salad dressing, divided
2 Tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro
1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 carrot, shredded
1 cup green onions, chopped
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
8 oz. package of angel hair pasta, cooked
optional* 2/3 cup peanuts
Coat chicken with 1/2 cup Italian dressing, refrigerate 30 minutes. Whisk remaining dressing with peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, ginger, and red pepper till smooth, set aside. Saute carrot, green onions, and chicken in sesame oil until chicken is done, about 5 minutes. Toss pasta , peanut sauce, and chicken in a large bowl, sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts if desired. Serves 4.
1 pound ground beef
1 cup potatoes, sliced
1 cup carrots, sliced
1/2 cup onion, sliced
10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
8 oz. package of shredded cheese
Spread ground beef in a 12" skillet; layer potatoes, carrots, and then onion on top. Add soup, sprinkle on cheese. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender; about 30 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.
I am sorry, but I will not be posting a chicken and broccoli casserole recipe because I am still tweaking mine a bit. I will try to post it once it is better. I marvel at how God can teach someone how to cook. Just about 4 years ago, I was terrified that the director at the daycare I was working at might ask me to make macaroni and cheese for the childrens' lunches. If you feel inadequate in the kitchen (as I still can feel occasionally), just persevere and try a variety of recipes. Your diligence will pay off. Blessings!
