What’s For Supper?

Here is a peek at a few of our most recent culinary adventures.  Yes… it’s a list…with links!!

1. Coconut Chicken Salad – from the website Skinnytaste.com

This was an easy and satisfying meal, and a good way to get in some of our Farmhouse Delivery produce.  We especially enjoyed the honey mustard dressing.  I happen to love coconut, but don’t shy away if you are not a fan – it adds more texture than flavor.

2. Beef Daube Provençal – from myrecipes.com

A true winner!  Any time I can get my hands on a boneless chuck roast on sale, I will head straight for this recipe.  The work comes in trimming and cubing the roast – I cut mine a little smaller in hopes that it would cook a little faster.  We liked it better than our traditional pot roast.  Although I LOVE my potatoes, they were not missed here.  We also opted to go with whole grain couscous instead of egg noodles.  Fresh FarmHouse green beans rounded out the plate.

3.  Cheddar, Corn and Potato Chowder – Whole Foods Market recipe

I was so tickled when my youngest son specifically requested this soup when the weather turned a little cooler last week.  Another simple recipe – I definitely recommend using Gold / Yellow potatoes.  They seem to have a creamier texture that comes through nicely in this dish.  A dash of cayenne also provides a nice “kick” – be careful not to add too much.

My older son needed a little something “more”, so I scavenged some leftover chorizo from the fridge and sliced it on top – delicious!
