Chicken is marinated in a Greek-style mixture of herbs with oil, vinegar, and lemon juice before being threaded onto skewers with bell pepper, mushrooms, and tomatoes for a tasty spin on grilled chicken.
A warm lovely vinaigrette dressing, with just a bit of sugar, is poured over a bowl of fresh and canned veggies and popped into the fridge. Twenty-four hours you have green bean-corn-celery-pea-corn-pimento-delight.
Tenderloin (sometimes called filet mignon) is the king of steaks. It's lean, tender, can add any wanted flavor to it and it will absorb it all, and you can cut it with a butter knife. This is expensive though so only cook this once in a while.
Roasted beet pieces nestled among their sauteed greens makes a beautiful, delicious side dish. If yellow beets are available, double the recipe using a bunch of red and a bunch of yellow, they're gorgeous! I think these go especially well with pork or chicken. This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, or expanded to whatever amount you need without adding very much to the preparation time.
An authentic recipe that takes 2 days. Have yours 2-way (served on a big plate of spaghetti); 3-way (add shredded Cheddar cheese); 4-way (add chopped raw onion on top of the cheese); or the big 5-way serving, everything plus a topping of kidney beans.
Lasagna noodles are baked with an earthy blend of beef, refried beans, oregano, cumin and garlic, with salsa spooned over. Topped with sour cream, green onions, olives and Pepper Jack cheese, the casserole gets one more brief baking to melt the cheese.
