My lunch yesterday was the rest of my Milton’s Californian Sandwich from Sunday along with some leftover salad.
I picked up the kids from school, took my son to basketball practice, then whipped up Chicken, Cashew and Vegetable Stir-Fry for dinner.
After I took the kids to school I went to spin class for a super sweaty workout. Afterwards, I went to Phillis Carey’s cooking class. Today’s class was called: Quick and Easy EveryNight Cooking.
The first recipe was Mexican Corn Soup with Chicken, Bacon and Tortilla Strips:
This one was my favorite. I need to make this ASAP!!!
The second recipe was Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Asian Sesame Plum BBQ Sauce:
Unique sauce…very tasty! Would be good on ribs too!
The next recipe was Boursin and Chive Stuffed Chicken Rolls with White Wine Shallot Sauce:
How could anything with Boursin cheese be bad right!?! It was delicious! Another winner!
Next was Quick Shrimp and Sausage Paella:
It definitely came together quick..a nice cheat on the real thing!
Dessert was Peanut Butter Swirl Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownie Sundaes with Ice Cream and Rich Chocolate Sauce:
Epic. I mean really good. Phillis always knows how to put on a great class!
After class, I took my daughter home from school, then went to my son’s flag football game. Now it’s time to chill at home!
