this week i am proud to say that i am ahead of the menu. i am never on time (or ahead of schedule for that matter) or beat a deadline. the locksmith and i decided to make some of these recipes ahead of time. he does kitchen patrol while i do the cooking, it's more fun and we get more done. last night we "made" the scones, quiche and bulgur salad. i had made the soup for a baby shower this weekend and so we will eat the leftovers this week. all that is left is the chicken recipe which is complicated. i dread making certain meals and the chicken is one of them but the end result is so good. the locksmith did some of the prep work to help me out. he has never looked so good as when he is pounding chicken and sanitizing the cutting board.
bulgur is one of my favorite grains. it takes about 12 minutes to cook and has a nutty flavor. this recipe was a hit with the locksmith! he wasn't sure about it at first but after he took a bite he couldn't stop. this is going to be my go-to recipe for summer potlucks.
happy eats everyone!
