Last night’s dinner was wonderful. Since we’ve been so busy with house guests the past few weeks my husband and I didn’t get a chance to enjoy a home cooked meal together, alone. Well, we dined alone last night. I really wanted to make a nice simple meal and have it ready by the time the hubby got home. It’s been a little warm most early evenings and after eating out so much, we both were wanting something a little bit on the lighter side and not so hot. As you all know last week I got a new cookbook, In the small kitchen, and wanted to try something from it. Many of the recipes in this book look so yummy, it was hard making a decision. p.s. they also have a blog with a lot more recipes. Finally, the pesto chicken salad sandwiches (modified a little) were the winner. At first a nice salad was going to be the side to compliment the sandwich, but then I remembered the kitchn has tons of recipes & found a nice simple coleslaw. First time making coleslaw and it was not only easy, but good! It was actually really nice to think about what to have for dinner, do a little shopping, and prepare the meal. The food wasn’t ready when K got home (he forgot to call me to let me know he was on his way home), but he loved the meal and we’ve decided to add this as a quick “go to” recipe. We finished the meal with fresh-baked brownies. Ahhh, I wish we could eat home cooked meals everyday.
p.s. i was organized and uploaded these pictures taken yesterday 🙂
