A while back, you might remember if you follow me (join in if you want; link-ups are to the right in the sidebar) ) I was all over these Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts. I promised I’d give you a few more options on how to use that chicken; see I made a bunch and then spun off different meals, meal prep fashion. Today it hit me that before summer is over and our beautiful fall days turn into w-w-w-w winter…oh how I hate the thought of it….I’d better give you the final couple of recipes in the series. One of my absolute favorites of meals I made is this Cajun Chicken Flatbread Pizza.
I used to be kinda opposed to Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip, just on principle…and here’s the deal: Back in the ’80s, it was all about the creamy Spinach Dip and it was served warm or cold in a bread bowl. I loved that stuff! And I remember how fancy we all thought it was, too. Then in the ’90s it was all about the Hot Artichoke Dip. It seemed that just about every restaurant had a version. It was everywhere! And I loved that stuff, too! Of course, I’ve always had a thing for artichokes, and guess who else in the house does? Homer, my cat. She goes nuts over them. She can smell even the canned artichokes in the grocery bag and immediately comes running!
Do you love broccoli? It’s always been a fave at our house and 90 percent of the time, I make Simply Steamed Broccoli or sometimes I make what I call Almost Alton’s Oven Roasted Broccoli. Both are super simple, super fresh. But sometimes you just gotta go the extra mile and make something really special. That, for me, is Easy Cheesy Broccoli Skillet.
Here’s a recipe that I made awhile back when I was at the folk’s but didn’t post before. Now that it’s December, I thought this Italian Stuffed Meatloaf would be a perfect “something” different for a winter weekend meal!
I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!
