What's for dinner tonight?

I"m making arroz con pollo. I hope my daughter will eat it. She must be about to hit a growth spurt, because she has actually been eating reasonable amounts without a battle. I hope this isn't just a phase, because mama is happy when baby is eating!

  • Mushroom Stroganoff, is a great, speedy weeknight dinner, especially if you cook the noodles the night before (I use whole wheat egg noodles or bowties). I also throw in spinach, either fresh or frozen chopped.
    1 lb portabello mushrooms (either the large or baby bellas), cut in half and sliced
    1/2 onion, diced
    1 - 1 1/2 c sour cream (I use fat free plain Greek yogurt)
    1/2 - 1 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika
    salt & pepper to taste
    olive oil or butter (I use some of each)
    1/8 cup (or so) vegetable broth or dry white wine (optional, not part of the original recipe; I think that it gives it some depth)
    Saute diced onions in olive oil or butter (your preference) until just soft and translucent. Add sliced mushrooms, saute until cooked through. Add broth/wine paprika and incorporate well. Turn down heat and add sour cream. Heat through, add salt & pepper to taste. Add more sour cream if the 1 cup doesn't cover everything well.

  • Serve on top of noodles or brown rice. Once I made this and I didn't have enough yogurt, so I added cream cheese and it was still very good! Mushrooms are a great source of protein as well as many other nutrients.

  • OMG! I love arroz con pollo....yum! Are you having refried beans and some homemade tortillas too???

    I love making Calavasa con pollo too but my dh doesn't care for it (zucchinni with chicken) he doesn't care to much for soupy foods. Like I love Menudo he doesn't. Oh well
