We'll be grilling twice again this week, hotdogs/hamburgers one night and then chicken another night. I'm excited to try the Black Beans but I'll need to make something else for Sly - he doesn't eat black beans. Other than that I'm not really trying anything new. Using tried and true recipes this week. Yum!

Hope everyone has a great week. :)

Summer Squash (hand written recipe)

Our goal for this summer is to grill food twice a week. It's incredibility cheap, decent for us and easy. Could it get any better? I am going to try to add a (non canned) veggie each time we grill out. I might do a potato or fries if we have hotdogs or a squash recipe if we eat chicken. You get the idea. Sly and Sylvester won't eat squash, but maybe they'll try it again eventually.

I found the website for the Summer Squash recipe on Pinterest. I love that website. I've gotten a serious kick out of looking at the vintage recipes, especially the hand written ones. It makes me wish I could get my hands on any of my grandmother or great-grandmothers recipe books!

I really don't have much this week. The weather is supposed to be pretty so we're hoping to grill out twice. Once we'll just do hotdogs and hamburgers and then the chicken. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

I made Cajun potato wedges last week so I'm going to make some chicken this week, the Easy Crispy Baked Chicken, that's a bit spicy. I'm going to switch the seasoning they give and put in some good ol' cajun seasoning. I'm not a fan of spicy food but Sly is and the type of seasoning we have isn't insanely "spicy" or hot. It's just amazingly flavorful.

The weather will be pretty later this week so we're going to try to grill out again. I think, if we could, we would grill out every night. Sly and I just love it and Sylvester will, usually, eat the food without complaint. Which is pretty much a miracle. 

I hope everyone has a great week. :)

Cajun Potato Wedges

I posted a Chicken and Rice recipe a couple weeks back and I think I'll make it with the left over chicken from the slow cooker. Sly doesn't eat rice so I'll have to make sure he has enough potatoes left over. ;)

I hope everyone has a great week.

I marinated some chicken in Olive Garden Salad Dressingfor about an hour and a half (while it thawed) and then grilled it - it was so good! I think I've done this one before but I can't remember if I actually talked about it. I highly recommend trying it. What's strange? I don't like their salad dressing on salad. Hah. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Grilled Chicken and Herbs

It's going to be a long and tiring week so I decided to do extra simple things for the menu this week. I don't have much to add about last weeks recipes because we've had them all before. So, instead I'm going to add a couple I'd like to try soon - like these Battered Fruit Rings, Stuffed Pizza Rolls and Chicken and Rice

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
