Another post by PhillyBoy! Tonight we both were cooks! I made some food for the week since it is going to be a busy one but needs to be a HEALTHY one, and PB made himself a nice dinner for himself (with leftovers for tomorrow!) It is going to be so fun when we finally live in the same town and don’t just have to look at pictures of each other’s meals ha!
Here’s his dinner….
PB tells us about it:
Chicken: The chicken was cut into nice thin slices, and then covered in flour. I added some salt, pepper, and a LOT of basil. I then covered the chicken in yogurt (good combo with the basil). I then added some more basil, and rolled the chicken in bread crumbs. I let it sit for about an hour. I fried it in vegetable oil – I know I know – not healthy. But it turned out very light (not very greasy or heavy) and very crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. Yogurt is just SO much better than egg.
French fries: I covered the potatoes in salt, pepper, garlic powder and deep fried them. They were VERY blah. I didn’t really enjoy them and I need a good french fry recipe!
Cole slaw: Ordinarily, I am not a huge fan of cole slaw. But the cabbage at the market looked great when we went shopping so I had to give it a try. Well I have come to the conclusion that home made coleslaw is the way to go!! It was so refreshing and I just didn’t add too much of the “dressing” so it wasn’t soggy in the least! It had a good taste, a little sweet, light, and extremely crunchy. So here’s the recipe: (I’m taking out some amounts because I didn’t really pay attention to them and went with my own taste preferences). Put the cabbage and carrots in a bowl. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a bowl until it has a liquid consistency and pour over the cabbage/carrots. Very light if you take it easy on the mayo.
- Shredded cabbage
- Carrot, shredded
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
- Lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
RhodeyGirl back… I feel like I should mention that PB has a great cooking method. He preps all his foods up until the point of cooking (or dressing, in salad’s case). Then he goes and exercises, comes back and all he has to do is cook his dinner! I never do that, but think I should! anyway….. Can anyone help out my potato-helpless fiance with a french fry recipe? Preferably a BAKED one???!?!?!
