Dinner Tonight: Watermelon Feta Salad and Chicken Breast

I was trying to find something light for dinner tonight, and stumbled on this idea for a Watermelon and Feta salad.   At first the combination might seem a little strange, but the saltiness of the feta combines with the sweet of the watermelon juice to make a wonderful creamy dressing which is set off by the mint.  I paired it with a boneless skinless chicken breast to keep it light.  It really turned into a great summer dinner.

Dinner Time - Warm southwest potato salad with Chorizo and Cojita

OK, I've been posting recipes several times a week for almost six months, and I can honestly say that of all the things I have showed you how to make so far, this one is the most likely to appear on the menu when Carrie and I open a restaurant.  I found the idea while looking through the custom recipe feed I have setup on Flipboard the other day, and kicked it up a couple notches to a main dish with the simple addition of some browned Chorizo sausage and Cojito cheese.  The family and I love potato salad, but I get tired of the heaviness of all that mayo.  Add the sweet deliciousness that comes from a roasted yam and you can not imagine how good this tastes and smells.

You can find the original recipe here.  My only changes were to add the chorizo at the end, and to use Cojito instead of Feta.  An amazing slice of fatboyheaven!

Budget Week - Day Three: Asian Shredded Chicken Coleslaw

I was looking for something light and a change of pace tonight, and found this great recipe for an Asian salad using more of the shredded chicken I made on Monday. If you didn't see yesterday's post, I prepared 3 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast using my crock pot chicken recipe on monday. I am trying to see how far I can stretch $9.00 worth of meet to feed a family of four.
