My kitchen is typically a busy place. We usually have breakfast, lunch and dinner at home, so I’m constantly cooking. It’s also at least 90 degrees outside right now and we have our ac set on 80, so cooking in the mornings (before I have to be in my office at 10:00am)or on weekends is the best plan to beat the heat and have quick nutritious meals in a flash.
Wednesday’s market trip resulted in bone-in chicken breasts for 99 cents a pound and I had a dollar off coupon. Friday night I de-boned and froze chicken and while I was at it, cooked a breast to use for omelets and cooked another to use for pasta salad. I also boiled the bones from the chicken and made homemade stock. While I was boiling the water for the pasta salad, I dropped in 6 in the shell eggs to boil along with the water. I drained and made the pasta salad and peeled the eggs and used three for deviled eggs and the other three to make egg salad.
Tonight (Sunday) I already had a beef fillet thawed to cook for boyfriend’s dinner (a pack of three nice fillets were marked down by the butcher AS I WAS STANDING AT THE MEAT COUNTER!), but he had early rehearsal. I cooked the fillet anyway as tomorrow’s dinner since I was already in the kitchen doing the dishes. Tomorrow, I’ll serve the fillet with a microwaved baked potato and the aforementioned pasta salad.
As for my dinner tonight, I’m having one of my favorites : A BOWL OF CEREAL!
How do you stay cool in the kitchen when it’s scorching outside?
