Sorry I missed your request! I just didn't even see it. Okeydokey, here goes.
Buffalo chicken sandwiches: just marinate chix breast in hot sauce (we like Frank's) and some butter (we use Smart Balance). This time I also threw in some white vinegar and extra cayenne pepper, to make sure it was spicy enough. I marinated for several hours (6-7?). THen just broil, and serve on buns with blue-cheese dressing and whatever other toppings you like. You can also do the chicken on salad, with carrots and celery and blue cheese dressing. A relatively healthy (healthier, at least) version of hot wings.
Cheesy ranch potatoes is something I totally made up to try to feed the kids with their chicken.
I just took leftover parcooked (in the microwave) potato chunks, put 'em in a pan, poured ranch dressing over the top, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Put them in the oven until they were hot and bubbly. Oddly, the kids both rejected them but DP and I gobbled 'em up.
My stuffed zukes: took out the innards, sauteed it with some green onion and garlic, added bread crumbs (actually fresh pita crumbs, what I had on hand), feta cheese, a smidge of lemon juice, some oregano, salt and pepper. Stuffed it back into the zuke boats and topped the whole thing w/mozzarella. We haven't actually had them yet, they MUST be tonight's dinner! So I don't know how they tasted. So be forewarned -- you are getting a previously un-vetted VikingKVinna original -- could rock, could suck!
Holler if you have any Qs.
