Everyone is cooking and sharing recipes on Facebook. There aren’t enough meals in our day to make all the things I want to make! Oh, the strict diet that is coming to us when this virus threat is over! The scariest part of all – summer is coming and I’m going to have to stop wearing these big, floppy sweatpants.
While working on the 14 day menu I promised to post, I came across this recipe for Pioneer Woman’s Italian Pot Roast. Oh, it looks so yummy, I can almost smell it. I remembered seeing a can of artichoke hearts in the cabinet and a jar of roasted red peppers in the pantry. I don’t even know why I had those roasted red peppers but I’m thankful I had them. When making a chuck roast, I always make it the day ahead so it can stay in the fridge overnight and the grease will harden and can be scooped away. I see PW does the same thing so I’m cooking that for tomorrow.
Then a friend posted that she was making White Chicken Chili. I love that and it’s about to be too hot for those kinds of meals so we’re having that today.
One both of those are done, we’ll have lots of leftovers – chicken piccata, tomato soup, Italian Pot Roast and White Chicken Chili. That means . . if things go according to the plans, I will cook two meals today , then I won’t have to cook Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday! I’m quite sure there will be some baking – bread for sure, but otherwise, there’s lots of knitting time for me this week.
