This Simply Will Not Do

Okay I feel like I am in blog black hole! My current dilemma preventing me from blogging is an ever looming yard sale. The yard sales was necessitated when finally my attic reached maximum capacity and threatened to bring the ceiling down on us!

I am still cooking (of course) but I just haven’t had time to document it at all. Woe to me! I will eventually get back on track…eventually.

So for now the results of the poll. Clearly everyone is looking for simple and fast, because the 5 ingredients recipes won hands down.

Here is my first installment. I do not have a picture, so you will just have to make due with me telling you it is fabulous. It is a couple more than 5 but bare with me, because it is too easy.

In a foil pouch place

1 lb of cut up lamb or chicken (beef does NOT work)
2 cut up tomatoes
1 sliced up onion
8 oz of feta (give or take…I personally like to give)
Juice of one lemon
1 tbs olive oil
Salt/Pepper to taste

Close pouch place in a 350 oven fro 30-35 minutes. Serve over cous cous or rice. It is one of my very favorite meals. Really.

I need quick meals for those crazy weekday nights. I love the ingredient combination in this!

Who are you? I saw this, and thought do I know this woman, lol, we will patiently wait for you! My son used to love to make 'pouch' cooked meals when we had a parchment salmon once when he was younger, this sounds great, so I take your word that it looks good...we do cook with our minds first...

Mmm..this sounds good AND easy! I just got some Himalayan sea salt from Sustainable Sourcing and have been wondering what I should try it on first. I think I found it! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, does this sound good! Wish there was a photo though... Lamb is probably my favorite meat. I'm always surprised when people say they don't like it, although I understand that it has a strong, distinct flavor. And the addition of feta...yum, you can't go wrong!
