Late July Lemon Day!
For dinner tonight, we had Lemon Cream Pasta with chicken (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/lemon-cream-pasta-with-chicken/Detail.aspx), a recipe I discovered on Pinterest last summer, but haven't made it since. Major mistake because it's so yummy!! I didn't follow it exactly though. It's too hot in Virginia in July to cook your chicken in the oven.
Instead, I cubed up the chicken breasts, tossed them in a skillet with a bit of olive oil and sprinkled them with the garlic powder and lemon pepper seasoning, along with one quartered lemon. Cooking the chicken in a skillet cooks it in about half the time and keeps from heating up the house!
To carry on the lemon theme for the day, I went back to Pinterest (obviously) and found this yummy little idea (http://www.keyingredient.com/recipes/575512200/starbucks-lemon-loaf/)...copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf! This one I did follow exactly as directed. My allergies have been screwy lately, so my smelling is not working properly, but it must have smelled delicious while baking and cooling, because my husband commented about 5 times in an hour about how he couldn't wait to try it!
So now I've used two lemons...four more left in the bag! Wonder what other creations I can come up with over the next few days!
