Lucy’s diner branched out today! My dream job would be an event planner/ catering. I would love to cook for people on their special events… So I figured why can’t I? I simply reached out to friends and family to do small events to gain experience, and here is my first one!
My mother in law is a real estate agent and was having a luncheon for some clients. I was honored when she asked me! So my Lucy and I were put to the test today! I was up at 5AM worried and making sure everything was set to leave the house by 8. Lucy in tow we headed out to deliver our first event. I managed to forget one thing, but we made it and reports are saying clients are coming back for seconds!
Carnitas (pulled pork tacos with green chili sauce)
Homemade refried beans
Berry salad with fresh mint
Mini cheese cake
Raspberry iced tea
This is super easy, light, healthy and yummy!!! Lucy ate it up!
Here is what you need:
2-3 cooked chicken breast cut in bite size pieces.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 chopped onion
8 oz crumbled feta cheese
3 ripe medium tomatoes
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1-2 cups of fresh spinach
About 3/4 box of pasta of choice (use whole wheat to make this healthier)
Here is what to do:
Cook pasta according to the directions
To cook the chicken:
Cut chicken into bite size pieces and place in a pan with olive oil and onion
Season the chicken with garlic salt and pepper
Sautéed until cooked all the way thru.
In a baking dish combine: spinach, tomatoes, and feta. Add chicken and pasta top with shredded mozzarella.
Well Italian with a little Mexican that is… Here is our week!
Here is the menu:
Turkey and cheese sandwich– I premake about 5-7 sandwiches with turkey, cheese, lettuce and tomato. Leave the dressing off so it does not get soggy! Put them in baggies and they are ready to go for the week!
Old fashion PB&J– put in the freezer and by the time they are ready to eat, it is still cold but thawed!
Avocado & cranberry salad
Green chili burritos
Turkey meatball sandwiches
Baked ziti A fun snack:
half and half
shredded cheddar cheese
crumbled goat cheese
crumbled feta cheese
1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
parmesan cheese (fresh is the best)
1 bag of spinach
1 yellow onion
1 small tomato
5 garlic cloves (I buy a jar of minced garlic so it does not go to waste)
fresh fruit–always easy to cut up and add to each meal
1 penne pasta
1 green enchilada sauce
1 Ortega chilies diced
1 refried beans
2 tomato sauce
1 diced tomatoes
1 package breakfast sausage
