I mentioned in the Skipping through Blogland post on Wednesday that I was going to make Better Baker’s Cheesy Chicken Chowder. I had purchased a turkey breast from Safeway on their $5 Friday and decided that I needed to use that rather than the chicken I had planned on. We love garlic, so I minced a clove and sautéed it in the butter for a minute or two. I also added some chopped red pepper as I said I might. Marsha’s method of cooking the vegetables in broth and then combining them with the cream sauce really appealed to me. This was delicious. I will make it again and again. We ate the chowder all up, and I took some to a friend at work; so I am using Marsha's photo.
I also made the Cumin Carrots Fries from the Pretend Chef. As I mentioned my hubby does not like cooked carrots so I ate them all myself; and I did Eat Them All. I loved them. Since I didn’t get a photo taken, I am borrowing hers. I will make these again and again also; and will try other herbs and spices using this method.
Both of these dishes are great keeper recipes.
I'm having a little give away. Go here for details.
