Recipes for the new stuff I am trying. I got these from Taste of Home magazines :)
Grilled chicken over Spinach
1 to 2 TBS olive Oil
1 TBS Cider Vinegar
1 Garlic Clove minced
1 tsp dried Thyme
1/2 tsp dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
dash of Pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 green onion finely chopped
1 to 2 garlic cloves minced
1 to 2 TBS Olive Oil
Half pound fresh mushrooms sliced
1 package fresh spinach torn (10 oz)
In a bowl combine first 8 ingredients. Mix well, pour over chicken. Grill uncovered over medium heat for 7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
In a large skillet saute onion and garlic in oil for one minute, stir in mushrooms, saute for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, saute for 2 minutes or until wilted. Transfer to a serving platter and top with chicken. 4 servings.
Now I haven't tried this yet, I am trying it tomorrow. I will cut down the oils, cuz I never use that much oil. I also haven't tried this side dish yet either :)
Beans and Spinach (Friday's side dish above)
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 TBS olive oil
2 large onions chopped
1 lb fresh baby spinach
1 can white cannellini beans
1/2 cup white whine or reduced-sodium chicken broth (I will ue the broth)
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
In large non stick skillet, saute garlic in oil til tender. Remove garlic and discard. Add onions to pan, saute til crisp-tender.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Serve with slotted spoon.
Since I really need to start back watching what I eat (I have literally gained back half the weight I lost last year.) I am also going to list some secondary meal (our supper, most other people's lunch) and breakfast ideas too.
deli meat sandwiches
egg salad (with light mayo, relish, and two hard boiled eggs) sandwiches
Bean salads (recipes to come)
