We didn't end up with quesadillas last night, dh had fed the kids breakfast by the time I got home. So I had cheese fries after they went to bed.
Tonight is zesty grilled ham steak, hot crash potatoes and steamed brocoli I got at the farmer's market.

|VikingKvinna||I think I'm just going to make tuna sandwiches. : I haven't planned anything or taken anything out of the freezer. I do have to do something with our CSA green beans and thought about trying Barbara Kingsolver's "frijole guacamole" from AVM. I will also cut up some carrot sticks and serve those with homemade hummus and ranch dressing.|

Today is DD's b-day, so we are having shrimp. She loves shrimp! I think I am going to make either a stir-fry or a scampi.

Last night we had the leftovers from DS's birthday party -- hot dogs, pesto pasta salad, tex-mex quinoa salad, cake.
Tonight I made a vegetable and cheese tart/frittata kind of thing. Pretty good, and I realized while we were eating it that everything in it except the cheese was locally grown/made!

Chicken, Rice and Broccoli Casserole
1 1/2 - 2 cups cooked chicken (shredded)
1 16 oz bag Bird's Eye baby broccoli florets (I cook this for about 5 mins)
1 tbsp butter
1 white onion diced
1-2 stalks celery diced
2 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
1 1/2 -2 cups cheddar cheese (I use sharp)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups chicken stock (I use Kitchen Basics)
***Optional*** Add 1/4 cup slivered almonds in before baking
Saute diced onion and celery in 1 tbsp butter. Remove from skillet and set aside. In the skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter. Blend in the 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt until smooth. Heat until bubbling-- Slowly pour in the 2 cups chicken stock-- stir until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of cheese to the mixture and blend until smooth. Add sauteed onion and celery in when this is smooth.
Layer cooked rice, broccoli and chicken in buttered or sprayed baking dish ( I use a 13x9 or larger). Pour the cheese mixture over--- then sprinkle rest of cheese on top. Bake at 350 for about 40-45 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Sometimes, I add 1/4 cup slivered almonds to the mixutre before baking and it really adds a nice crunch. Either way, it's really good. This is a good one to make when you have leftover rotisserrie chicken
