Something light but yummy. Poultry or vegetarian only please and no quinoa. Shit's waaaay too expensive. Nothing in the oven.

I like to cut cup a little onion, sliced squash and zucchini, and sautee it. I just use a big spray of canola oil cooking spray. Add a little bit of chopped garlic at the very end. Then I will bake a chicken tenderloin (you can blacken it in a skillet if you don't want to bake it) and cut it up and toss it in. Salt and pepper to taste. Its very light and yummy.



Cabbage soup. Half head of cabbage chopped, carrots, and onions. Fill pot with water just to the top of vegetables. I add two chicken bullion cubes and a little salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 25 minutes.



Slice cucumbers, cherry tomatoes halved, and onions. Marinade in fat free italian dressing for an hour or so.



I just noticed, I love onions. lol

I don't have a specific recipe to post, but last summer I got on a kick with chipotle in adobo as well as roasted poblanos. They changed my cooking :). I keep single, roasted poblanos in freezer bags and I always have chipotles in the frig as they last forever.



The other night I was making caramelized onions for our burgers. I left a few onions in the pan, added the kernels from 2 ears of raw corn on cob, added some salt and a little garlic. After cooking for about 4 minutes, I threw in the chopped polano until hot. Them, I turned off the heat and dumped in about 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1/3 cup sliced scallions and some toasted, sliced almonds.
DELISH.



I will choose "Mexican" as this seasons theme and add a little Indian fusion. I'm excited! Can't wait for the rain to go away!
