I had a blast cooking for my first 2 clients. I started the day at the grocery store at 7:45 and was completely cleaned up and finished by 3:30. I think I need to get good shoes to work in because when I woke up this morning my feet were killing me. A flashback to my waitressing days where I couldn’t afford good shoes and would be on my feet for hours in cheapos from Payless. I will not often bore you with my menus but since it was day one, I’d love to share what I made.

Chicken Tortilla Soup: Perfect for the freezer. Fresh tomatoes,spices,chicken stock and slow roasted shredded chicken make this soup a perfect combination of healthy and hearty. Topped with Monterey Jack cheese and crunchy tortilla chips this soup is Mexico in a bowl.

Roast Salmon with dueling sauces:  Single serving pieces of salmon. The first will be prepared fresh with a creamy avocado sauce. The second will be prepared for freezing with an Italian Puttanesca sauce made from tomatoes, olives, and capers.

Indonesian Ginger Chicken: Honey, soy sauce and fresh ginger are the key flavors of this incredible delicious chicken, hot or cold. Prepared for the freezer, just defrost and bake. Use the left-over the next day in a sandwich or salad.

Baked Potato Soup and Filet of Beef Sandwiches: Creamy potato soup made with farmer’s market potatoes makes a nutritious and hearty meal. Topped with applewood  bacon and cheddar cheese. This is paired with beef sandwiches on multigrain rolls with crisp lettuce and a tangy housemade blue cheese spread.

Orecchiette with chicken meatballs: “Little ears” is the nickname for this fun pasta. Rustic tomato sauce paired with whole milk mozzarella and hand rolled chicken meatballs create a delicious but light summer pasta dinner.  Side dish: Steamed broccoli with lemon. Prepared ready to freeze or bake.
