I had an easier week this week, recovering from my surgery. So I was able to be in the kitchen more. Still didn’t get everything done that I wanted to. But I’m always too hard on myself anyway. If I don’t get everything done on my to do list, I feel like I failed. I’m working on that!!
In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu
My son planted kohlrabi in the garden this year. I’m not sure why, as none of us had ever had it before. lol
Turns out, kohlrabi, sometimes called German turnip or turnip cabbage, is in the cabbage family. It grows above ground, not below, so doesn’t belong in the turnip family.
You can eat it raw, or cooked in multiple ways. We thought it tasted like a mild turnip
I made a family favorite…. Cheesy Ranch Pork Chops. So good!
Pork chops smothered in sour cream with ranch powder. Then covered in cheddar cheese.
I served it with rice, beets, and crescent rolls. Yum!
Another night, we had baked chicken, mashed potatoes, and pan fried zucchini. I use just a small amount of butter in a cast iron skillet.
We needed a quick meal one night. So hot dogs it was. Guess who forgot the hot dog buns??? lol So we went old school. lol I actually like it better on bread than a bun. There is a better bread to hot dog ratio. lol
Then it was on to birthday party prep! A Princess Tea Party to be exact for my 4 year old granddaughter.
First up, chicken salad! Yes, I use canned chicken. I also add sweet relish, finely chopped celery, and finely chopped green onions. Refrigerate over night so the flavors can meld. So good!
The table without all the tea cups, including the most adorable mermaid tea set I found!
My other daughter, one of the Aunties, made a castle cake. It was the first big cake she’s ever decorated. I think she did an amazing job!
Isn’t it cute???
