I’m late getting this out but I’m sure everyone understands that life is…different…these days. Interesting times we are living in, right? But in spite of the chaos around us meals still need to be prepared. In fact, it’s those very routines that are comforting in times of uncertainty. So let’s try to carry on, shall we? I’m going to continue doing What’s For Dinner posts in the hopes they might give you some ideas for feeding your own family.

Curry is a great way to use up veggies. This one contained onions, carrots, potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers and broccoli. I served it over brown rice, topped with a bit of mango chutney and naan bread on the side. It is one of those dishes that is even better the next day.
I hadn’t made Taco Frito Salad in quite awhile and we all wondered aloud why not. It’s easy to prepare and such a nice change of pace as winter draws to a close.
This was my favorite meal of the week. I brined the chicken breasts for about an hour before dinner and that really does make a difference, especially in the texture. The white wine cream sauce was flavored by the thinly sliced onions and halved red grapes. I served it with baked cauliflower, asparagus and biscuits.
Instead of soup, I made vegetarian chili this past Saturday. It was packed full of vegetables along with beans and SO good! We all loved it and like the curry, it was even better the next day. Which was a good thing since I made a lot of it. We topped our bowls with grated cheese, sour cream and the rest of the Fritos from the Taco Frito Salad earlier in the week.
I had to reorganize my pantry to make room for the extra items I stocked up on. And that was a good thing since I found two packages of spinach ravioli that needed to be used. I added the cooked pasta to a jar of sauce and served this with the leftover cauliflower from a couple of days ago, a tossed green salad and crunchy Italian bread hot from the oven.
