Alright so there are 2 weeks of recipes in today's post.
Last Sunday night I had planned a quick & easy dinner - Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken & Conecuh sausage. I thought I had a jar of alfredo sauce in the pantry, but discovered I was wrong once we started cooking. A quick search on Food Network found Emeril's alfredo recipe and I actually had all the ingredients to make it. Overall it was good - reminded us of some of the cajun pasta recipes we have made. Doubtful that it will replace the good ol' jarred sauce. I definitely prefer the creaminess of the sauce out of the jar.
I made another apricot glazed pork chop recipe - what is it about fruit & pork? This one came from Better Homes & Gardens and included onions and Dijon mustard to give it a little kick. Definitely a hit.
I have been loving these corn/avocado summer salads lately. I think I have at least a half dozen variations pinned on Pinterest! I made this one last weekend to go with Cameron's smoked butt. Yum!
Last night, I tried out a recipe from Pinterest - Cheesy Rice Bake. It was originally for chicken, but I decided to switch out the chicken for ground deer meat (always looking for ways to use it up!). Another adjustment I made was to add taco seasoning when browning the meat. I feel like it would have been way too bland without it! Completely forgot to take a picture of it - honestly it looks much like any casserole with cheese on top! :) Overall, it was good, but not good enough to be a keeper. We are starting to get pretty picky around here about what constitutes a "keeper!"
That's it for now. Happy cooking!
