Spring has sprung in the Mile High City (amen) and all around grass is getting greener, days are getting longer, and this little city dweller is feeling her mood start to improve. It also means that cooking changes around The Tree House. Time to get the old faithful Patio Caddie electric grill out from under its winter cover and ready to be fired up. Time for less use off the oven that makes my poor a/c work overtime and more quick cooked lean meats on salads. Time for chilled Vhino Verde and grilled pizza eaten on the patio next to the gel-fuel fire pit, listening to the neighborhood coming and going below. I can almost smell it – it is so close now.
So, what is cooking this week?
Monday – Sweet and Spicy Chicken (this recipe), green salad
Tuesday – Taco Tuesday with our neighbors (and a chance for Aunt Keri to snoogle baby Harper)
Wednesday – Grilled Salmon with Broccoli Slaw
Thursday – Tostadas (something like these)
Friday or Saturday – Happy Hour at Home – bar snacks done light for date night at home
