What is Cooking in Your Kitchen in July?

Today I have a chuck roast with potatoes, onions, carrots and seasonings cooking in the electric pressure cooker. I plan to make my cauliflower salad to go with it too. I do have some other recipes I want to make before long but for now this is what I am fixing. How about you, what is cooking in your kitchen?

    I had a lot of peppers in the freezer, and this year's crop looks great, so I decided to make pepper jelly with the frozen ones. Worked great.

    Need to make bread today, but I probably will not. The plan for dinner tonight is mahi mahi cooked in the air fryer, a garlic mushroom rice pilaf cooked in the Instant Pot, chilled asparagus, and sliced tomato.

    I need to get up and get busy...have soup to make and laundry to do I'm thinking of trying that sugar free pumpkin cheesecake, but it calls for almond meal. I have almonds, but directions I've found for almond meal say to use a coffee grinder and flour sifter, and I have neither. I have a hand blender, I will try that. Only need 1/2 cup.

    Finished turning my duck stock into soup, very happy with the result. At the moment, resisting the temptation to make gingerbread -- I've had so many treats already the past 2 weeks! The gray skies and dropping temps really make me crave something like that.

    I made breakfast when I got home this morning. It was a typical Sunday breakfast,which is bigger than normal as it is usually SOs only day off of the week. Rice,scrambled egg with cheese, homemade heart shaped biscuits,bacon,sausage,and fried potatoes for SO, just a piece of bacon and 2 scrambled eggs for me. Stopped on the way to work got a rotisserie chicken and some brocolli. I will eat some of the white meat and give the rest of the chicken to the little stray cats around here. SO says he will be in later(he comes through my workplace in order to do his job) and if he does,I'll make him either a chicken sandwich or a fish sandwich, his choice,and probably some fries to take with him when he goes. I bought him a pack of Grandmas peanut butter cookies on the way to go with it.

    Well it’s Friday, pizza day. Unfortunately, after buying a hundred-fifty pounds of flour my wife and I have decided to go on a low carb diet. I’ll make pizza for the kids though. Me, I see halibut is on sale at Whole Foods. I see some piccata in my very near future.

    Lemon grilled chicken breasts...so juicy and tender...the secret is to use just the rind of the lemon, not the juice which "cooks" the chicken and makes it tough.

    Today I am making dilly beans. There are also two small avocados in the fridge that need to be used and I plan to make guacamole later.

    Dinner is going to be leftover bbq chicken, veggie stand corn on the cob and a salad. I may also slice up some watermelon to go with our meal.

    Yesterday I cooked 30 lbs of chicken breasts to have ready for the dogs. We might eat some, too, added into lentils or pasta. When I can get boneless/skinless chicken breasts for .99/#, I buy about 50# worth. It will last a few months. Also made a big batch of red beans and sausage, as well as lentil soup in the Instant Pot.

    Cold dinner for us tonight too! Cold asian noodle salad with thin sliced tri tip steak on top. We eat meat/fish only one day a week, and this is our favorite "meat meal". Sometimes I'll make a couple of fresh Vietnamese summer rolls to go with.

    Nothing too exciting in the main or veggie departments. I made a dessert called "Whipped Jelly Traybake." Shortbread crust baked in an 8x8 inch pan. When completely cooled, dissolve a 3 oz package jello (any flavor) in 4 oz boiling water (this is much less water than normal). Set jello aside for 20 to 30 minutes. Then the fun part: add 1/4 cup powdered sugar to the jello and whip it until foamy and lighter in color, about 8 minutes if using a stand mixer. Spread over the shortbread crust, sprinkle with coconut if desired, refrigerate overnight. The cut bars were nice looking, the jello texture was like a sticky marshmallow. I think kids would enjoy making them. I'm thinking of a lime jello & coconut shortbread version next time.

    I have been hungry for beans. So I have the instant pot loaded with Cranberry beans and ham hocks and a little ham. I might cook rice to go with it or some French bread. I have some fresh Nectarines and peaches for dessert with a little scoop of yogurt.

    I made an omelet for breakfast this morning with a summer squash from the garden. A very small one. I'm going to pick two more that are out there tomorrow for breakfast again since I'll be leaving the next morning and I don't want to come home to any giant squash.

    Tomorrow will bake some banana nut muffins to take on our trip and probably freeze some.

    Salmon cooked like this https://www.chefsteps.com/activities/the-ultimate-grilled-salmon. It was strange at first because it's a little sweet but each bite got better. Next time I'll serve it cold with a spicy lime mayo.

    It's hot here, but we have good A/C, and so I made whole wheat lasagna.

    Here a photo of the pasta, showing how I rolled the dough out to fit the shape of the pan:

    Here is is after being baked:
    This made 6+ servings.

    This time I rolled out each sheet of pasta just before putting it into the pan. The last time I dried the pasta, and it became too brittle. This way was easier, since it eliminated the drying step.

    Annie, when I make lemon chicken, I also use the rinds, but I save the juice and add it after the chicken is cooked.

    I "cheated" yesterday and made individual pizzas for us - mushroom for DH and fresh cherry tomato/olive/basil for me, using puff pastry for the crusts. I hardly ever watch the Cooking Channel but was so bored the other day I watched a Pioneer Woman episode where she made some. Well ... It works! If one is truly craving pizza and not enough time to make a traditional dough, give it a try. 1/2 sheet per pizza, brush with a bit of olive oil, top & bake on parchment paper-lined sheetpan at 425° 15 - 16 minutes.

    Fresh tomatoes are coming in, so lots of tomato sandwiches and I eat a lot of salad tricolore these days. Tonight is a chicken kabob with red peppers and onions and a side of grilled squash.

    Cold dinner tonight. I made a large salad and diced a previously cooked pork chop and an egg for the top. That doesn't mean I didn't cook today. I heated up the kitchen by decarboxylating 8 cups of cannabis, then simmering it for several hours in coconut oil to make a large batch of balm for my hubby. It really does help with the back pain.

    The colossal shrimp I bought were 15 shrimp per pound. I bought six, and so it was 0.4 pounds. I cooked them with cayenne, garlic, butter, lemon juice, and Cajun seasoning. I sliced open the back before grilling them, but I left the shells on so that they would not dry out.
