This week I tried Bean-Cheese-Rice Squares. Score. Totally. I've never actually done anything casserole-style prior to this, mostly because the only casserole dish I had up until a couple weeks ago was a massive 9"x13" dish. Which makes WAY too much for two and a half people. So I picked up a nice 8"x8" from Target and it got initiated this week!
I ended up switching my Wednesday and Thursday night meals this week, so I was supposed to do "Bruschetta Chicken over Rice" tonight. I used the same basic ingredients, but since I didn't get the bruschetta topping made earlier this week, I changed it up a bit. I think I should have added some Italian spice to the rice that I re-heated, but other than that, this ended up super tasty and SUPER easy!!
Oh yeah, and I found the key to an awesome honey mustard glaze last night for our pork chops. For two boneless, skinless chops, I used: 2T honey, 2T dijon-style mustard, and 1/4 tsp cumin! I whisked it together, dipped my chops in to coat on each side (after salt & pepper on chops), and cooked them up on the stovetop in some olive oil. I'm all about the fewest ingredients necessary to make something awesome tasting. Yummy! (Even my husband thought so!)
Lookout everyone, I just might get good at this cooking thing!!
