Sunday Supper...Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend...Our last time at the lake for this season...

It's a beautiful morning...I made a casserole last night and served with salad that we will snack on for breakfast with fruit for the next two days...

My recipe...

 

6 eggs whisked till creamy

Add 1 cup whole milk and a little salt and pepper...whisk some more

Add 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and 2-3 ounces of feta cheese.  Stir.  

 

Chop and saute 1/2 of a white onion, red and yellow bell peppers...add fresh mushrooms and cook until the water is all gone...Add around a cup or more of fresh baby spinach and stir till wilted.

 

I keep roasted chicken breasts in the freezer so I can just pull out what I need for recipes.  I 

I chopped a breast and a half and combined with the vegetable mixture.  

Spray a glass casserole dish with Pam.  Spread the chicken and vegetable mixture in the bottom of the pan.  Give the eggs and milk and cheese one last stir to combine and pour over the vegetables.  Sprinkle a generous amount of grated mozzarella over the top and bake at 350 degrees for around 45 minutes.

You can re-heat slices in the microwave.  

Yum!

 

Another thing I've made that we will be enjoying all weekend is fresh roasted corn salad.  I can't keep my fork out of the bowl.  

I am so excited about my new way to roast corn...I'm probably the only one who hasn't been doing this...but if you haven't tried this technique...Do!  You will never prepare your corn any other way.

Throw your ears of corn in that nasty little husk on to a cookie sheet.  Roast in the oven on 450 degrees for 30 minutes.  

 

Let cool just enough to handle and then slide the husk right off.  Every silk just glides off.  The corn is sweet and crisp and silk free.  Amazing!

The rest is just chopping...

Cut the corn off of two ears of roasted corn.

Dice fresh tomatoes...I usually use grape tomatoes, but this time I added a can of drained Rotel tomatoes with green chills...loved the kick it added.

Dice very small  about 1/2 of a red onion.

Lots of chopped fresh cilantro.

One can of rinsed and drained black beans.

One avocado diced.

One tablespoon of lemon pepper and salt to taste.

Squeeze 1/2 fresh lime over all and stir to combine.

So good!  Eat as a salad with grilled chicken, chops or steak.  Or enjoy as an appetizer with tortilla chips...

 

We're just laid back and lazy all weekend!  Think I'll take a walk now before we make lunch and get on the boat.

How about you?  How are you enjoying this awesome Labor Day Weekend?

It's your turn.  Let's talk!

 

 

Sunday Supper...Let's Chat A Bit About What We've Been Up To!

We've been so sporadic with blog posts for the past several months.  Needing a bit of R&R so at the lake this weekend...Pull up a chair and let's chat about what we've been up to...

 

 

We blogged a bit about the Southern Living House that we staged in the Spring.  It was a lot of work and a HUGE success.  And as a result we are busier than ever right now.  We will be posting full details and all of the behind the scene images on Wednesday.  You won't want to miss that post...

We are currently working on several awesome homes from the ground up...

Sunday Supper...Turkey Mozzarella Panini

Oh my...I have experimented into the wonderful world of panini sandwiches this weekend and can't wait to experiment more...

Everyone knows that I'm a Pinterest addict...And I pin yummy sandwich recipes all the time...They always tempt me but haven't actually tried any of them until this weekend.  

We were going to the lake so I ran through the grocery store to pick up a few things on our way out of town.  We like Boars Head spicy pepper turkey and I bought some roast beef as well, all thinly shaved.  I threw in a bag of mozzarella cheese for making veggie pizzas.  

I've read if you don't have a panini maker to use a foil covered brick ...and I'm here to tell you that it works just fine...

 

Here is what I did...

I buttered one side of Bakery French white bread that was sliced...

Got the skillet hot and added two slices of the bread butter side down.

Quickly spread creamy horseradish sauce on both pieces of bread.

Piled turkey and roast beef on to one of the slices of bread.

Put the shredded mozzarella on top of the meat.

Topped the sandwich with the other piece of bread...butter side up.

Press the foil covered brick over the sandwich and  leave for less than a minute.  Just until golden brown.

Flip the sandwich and press with brick...Less than a minute...Remove from pan.

Could not be easier...but work quickly so the bread does not burn.  

 

We are completely hooked...They were so easy and soooo delicious.

I'm already thinking of easy variations...add bacon...roasted tomatoes...arugula or sliced avocado...
