Menu Monday: And a few sauces

What did y’all eat during your Super Bowl Parties last night?

Since I cannot eat hot wings from any restaurant I decided to make my own. I will share the tasty sauce recipes with you later on in the post. The weather has been seasonably warm so this week I ate a few salads and made cooking simple. I did however do a lot of baking. I needed to get pictures of some foods and I made sure my nephew had plenty of snacks to take back to his dorm.


Sunday: Garlic Roasted Chicken with alfredo pasta

Monday: Greek stuffed chicken, Italian green beans and roasted potatoes.

Greek Chicken marinating

Tuesday: Strawberry Spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Wednesday: Wedge salad with homemade blue cheese dressing

Thursday: Salad leftover. This was Italian green beans, greek stuffing, tomatoes and hard b oiled eggs. This was really tasty and filling!

Friday: Fried Chicken and parmesan fries.

Saturday: Spaghetti

Need appetizers, party food or just a tasty meal? Try these chicken bites.

Spicy Asian

This is a kicked up Teriyaki sauce

1/4 c organic soy sauce

1 Tablespoon ginger

1/4 c brown sugar

2 Tablespoons minced garlic

Bring to a boil over medium heat. Meanwhile, dissolve 2 Tablespoons potato starch into 1/4 c cold water.

When sauce is boiling reduce heat and stir in potato starch mixture. Keep stirring until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and add 2 Tablespoons honey and 2 Tablespoons  sesame seeds (optional)

To spice it up stir in 3 teaspoons red curry paste, and 1 Tablespoons red chili flakes. Mix well and toss desired amount with fried or baked chicken pieces.

Habanero Hot Sauce or Buffalo Style Sauce

1 Tablespoon Extra virgin Olive Oil

1/2 c chopped onions (optional I do not use onions in my sauce all the time)

4 Tablespoons minced garlic (about 10 cloves depending on preference)

5 (+/- depending on your heat level) Habanero peppers

1/4 c water

1/4 lime squeezed for juice

1/4 c rice vinegar

Heat oil over medium heat in a saucepan; add onion and garlic and cook until soft. Place in a blender or food processor adding the whole peppers and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Return to sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes.

Toss with chicken pieces.
