June 14 Recipes

As usual, I make our lunch side dishes on the weekend. 


Red Potato Salad

There aren't specific amounts of ingredients for this recipe I just boiled 8 large red potatoes (keeping two for hash browns) and keeping the skins on, add cut up dill pickles, dill, salt, pepper, and mayo. I top this with sliced hard boiled eggs.

Chicken/Pasta/Bean Salad

The same with this recipe. No real amounts just add what you like.
Mine includs: Can of chicken in water drained, 2 Cups cooked pasta ( whatever you have around), 1/2 can olives sliced (I buy the big can and slice them myself), salt, pepper, can of drained garbanzo beans, 1 teaspoon sugar, enough Italian Dressing to coat pasta ( I use Paul Newman's dressing because he does not use high fructose sugar), and a couple tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

 NOTE: I COOKED THE PASTA AND TWO EGGS IN THE SAME  POT.  Put the eggs in at the beginning and add the pasta when the water starts boiling. They will be done at the same time. The eggs are for the potato salad.

Anti-Pasta Salad

Hubby loves this for lunch. It's easy. I cut uncured slices salami into pieces, add black olives, several Peperoncinis with a splash of it's liquid, a pinch of sun dried tomatoes, and a couple tablespoons of Italian Dressing.

 Meanwhile, the ribs are marinating. Lots of ancho chili powder and grill seasonings. Three sections will give us 2 dinners and 2 lunches.

Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

Yes, that is hubby's fingers. He is in charge of tasting. This is strictly what hubby loves. It's a dish from his past in the mid west. Equal parts of sugar, white vinegar, and water. Add thinly sliced English Cucumbers, thinly sliced sweet onions, and salt and pepper to taste. This time I used three cucumbers. It won't last long.

Later on this evening after hubby grills the Ribs I will make Coffee Cake adding crushed macadamia nuts. 
Because our Tin Can gets hot this time of the year hubby will put our portable oven outside on the table to cook the Coffee Cake.
