Summer was here...then gone...then here...then gone...then here...and now gone tomorrow?
Stop the madness!
Or I could just stop being a sissy and enjoy the bipolar weather!
Crock pot one night and grill the other!
First up, Italian Beef Sandwiches!
I've posted the recipe before, but I wanted to try to find a different Italian Dressing Mix--without sugar! After reading through several recipes and checking the spices I had on hand, this is what we came up with. It worked perfectly, and I have a large amount left over!
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried onion
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
2 tablespoons salt
Mix ingredients well. Store in an airtight container.
For the roast: use 2-3 heaping tablespoons and 1/4 c. vinegar.
To use as salad dressing: whisk together 1/4 c. white vinegar, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons of the dry mix.
Next up: Salt and Pepper Grilled Chicken

Have you discovered Martha Stewart's food section? I could spend way too much time scrolling through recipes! I love how the recipes are grouped together by key ingredient or food type. Check out their seasonal recipes!
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
2-3 chicken breasts
Rub each chicken breast with the salt and pepper mixture. Let set for 30 minutes.
Grill on medium heat until cooked through. (about 5 minutes on each side)
