Here are some recipes I prepped to make life run smoother this week!
First up, Food & Wine’s Chicken Saltimbocca. I ordered this dish at a restaurant a while ago and was like, “holy smokes! YUM! Why haven’t I had chicken saltimbocca before?” So I made some this week. If you haven’t made it, it’s chicken topped with sage + prosciutto in a white wine sauce. (I’m aware the below photo looks like raw chicken lol, but it’s not! It’s just prosciutto topped.)
Next up, lately I’ve been making Gimme Some Oven’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. I don’t chill the dough and I swap the amounts of brown sugar and granulated sugar, so there’s more granulated sugar in them and they taste more sugar cookie-y.
My mom had brought over some groceries and left them in our fridge, so I sautéed up a container of the vegetables she brought – zucchini + brussels sprouts with prosciutto that was leftover from the above chicken.
Also made a batch of my no-bake monster balls. Didn’t have m&m’s, so just used all mini chocolate chips. These are great for a one-handed snack option while child rearing :) And Jojo runs around screaming, “ball?! ball?!” when she wants one…or anytime I open the fridge and she catches a glimpse of them.
Got a batch of cold brew brewing…
And, lastly, Andrew and I went on our first date night in awhile to Perry’s and we ended up with quite a few leftovers, so we’ll be eating on those this week.
