Rainy day cookin'

This past rainy weekend was spent at home watching Food Network, cooking, cooking and cooking.

Saturday menu:
Herb garlic bread
Chicken ragu with spaghetti

Sunday menu:
Rotisserie chicken tomato-based vegetable soup with Orzo
Lemon bars

Lemon curd

These were sooo good straight out of the oven
8 cloves of garlic, 1 stick of butter,
& large handfuls of Italian parsley/chives

Chicken ragu the bf helped make
A dash of parmesan
& rosemary adds a nice touch

Didn't know what to do with leftover rotisserie chicken
so I made broth from the bones
& ended up with a tomato-based soup with orzo (pasta)

Liv gave me a bagful of lemons from her backyard
They were so sweet I had to resist
eating them just like that
In the end, I did the right thing & made lemon bars instead

Leftover lemons prompted the idea of
lemon curd

Now who said staying in wasn't fun?

Lol. I'd gladly cook for you but nothing beats Olivia's famous prime rib and green tea cakes (which I have yet to try!!)
