We’ve been cooking lots lately. Some highlights:
The pound cake recipe is from How to Cook Everything by Bittman (this cookbook is legendary, and also, really can tell you how to cook almost anything. I recommend it.)
The rest was from Bobby Flay’s Grill It Cookbook, which is also where the fish taco recipe came from.
We also made some homemade pot pie!
Then we cooked some chicken leg quarters in the pressure cooker. We did three leg quarters, four cups of water, some thyme, some rosemary, two bay leaves and a quarter of an onion. We reserved the water, skimmed off the fat and froze it in one cup bags to use as chicken stock.
We mixed together the chicken, vegetables, a couple cans of cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup and popped it all in a store bought pie crust. In the over for about an hour at 400, and we ate this delicious thing:
We actually cut up way too many vegetables, and ended up with enough to fill three pies. So we took the second two pies and wrapped them in several layers of plastic wrap, put them in a large freezer bag and put them in the freezer so we’ll have some easy home cooked meals in the next few weeks.
We also had some excitement last weekend. Seth and Amanda came to visit, so naturally we decided it would be a good idea to put on some camo and shoot each other.
I still haven’t found a job, and just got word I didn’t receive the one I interviewed for about five weeks ago. I do have meeting tomorrow about another one, though (It’s not really an interview I don’t think) so wish me luck!
In the meantime, we told Tucker he needs to find some work.
Have a happy Memorial Day!
