A few quick recipes...

So today we grilled out....YUM!!! I knew I really missed it! But to go along with our chicken and pork I made a few easy sides. Thought you might like to hear.

Roasted potatoes
  1. cut up any type of potato into chunks
  2. spray the pan with Pam olive oil
  3. put the potatoes on the pan and spay again
  4. salt the potaotes
  5. Put in the oven at 400 F for about 30-40 min until tender
(***You can use any type of seasonings to make these-try Ranch, Season salt or anything you think might be yummy!)

Super easy right. No excuses!

Yummy Biscuits

Ok, my bread love is back, but these are just so good and you can make a big batch like this and flash freeze them (put them in the freezer, on a cookie sheet, before they are cooked. Once they are frozen transfer to a freezer bag. Pull out however many you need and just cook a little longer b/c the are frozen)
and have them for another meal or breakfast sometime!

4 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp salt
7 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter
1 2/3 cup milk

Mix the dry ingredients. Then cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or a fork or your hands or I like to use the food processor for it all.  When all the butter is mixed in (looks crumbly) mix the milk in and make the dough.  Cut into biscuits. Depending on the size you should get about 20 or so.  Bake in the oven at 400 F for 12-15 min until they are golden brown.

Chinese Peas

I know these sound strange, but this is now my favorite way to eat peas and it is super easy! I found it even easier now that there are the steam fresh veggies

1 pack steam fresh peas (cooked for 5 min in the microwave)
2 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic chopped or sliced (or you can used the minced)
soy sauce

Just stir-fry it on a high heat all together until the garlic is cooked. Stir it constantly to avoid scorching it. Add enough salt to make it good and then add a little soy for flavoring.
I love it!!!

I hope you enjoy these!!!! Be a blessing to your family and cook them good food! Happy cooking!
