Chicken with Dill Sauce and Momofuku’s Brussel Sprouts

I think the only food my dad doesn’t like is brussel sprouts. I grew up thinking they were gross, even though I had never tried them. Then one day at NYC’s Sacred Chow, I had a brussel sprout special that changed my life. Tonight I tried Tamarind and Thyme’s (adapted?) Momofuku Brussel Sprouts recipe. So delicious and amazing.

The recipe I’m sharing with you now though is the grilled chicken with dill sauce from my 1988 Southern Living Cookbook. I wanted to grill the chicken, but I haven’t gotten any propane for my grill 😦 So instead I baked the chicken. Still tasty. If I do end up doing this on the grill, I’ll post it again. Also, the dill sauce calls only for sour cream and not Greek yogurt like I used. I just wanted something healthier and thicker. I think it was perfect.

this is my lunch at work! everyone was jealous.

Bigos

I picked up a Russian, Polish, & German cookbook at my friend’s yard sale the other day. I love Eastern European food, but the only thing I can really make is borscht. I decided to try something different – a dish called bigos – but I don’t think I did it right. It was tasty, but I mistook/read the “chuck steak” as “ground chuck,” so it didn’t seem as meaty and fun. It has lasted me all week though, so that’s pretty great. I also decided not to take a picture because it doesn’t look as appetizing and pretty.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Recently I’ve signed up with an online book exchange called PaperBackSwap. I order/wish for all kinds of books and post books I have. The more books I send to people, the more books I can receive! The only thing you pay for is postage, but when people send you books, they pay for postage. It’s awesome. So one of the books I recently received was Southern Living Annual Recipes 1988 (the year I was born). The cookbook is divided into months so that you can cook what’s seasonal. Also, this book has recipes designed completely around the microwave! Crazy.

Anyway, I was skeptical of the squash casserole, but I wanted to give it a try. Plus, I wanted to make a vegetable-based meal for the week. I didn’t take a picture of it, but here’s a picture of all the peppers at the Buford Highway Farmers Market!
