Cooking: Menu and a recipe

Now that it is summer, we are eating our "big" meal at lunch. 
Which means we all sit down together to eat as a family.
I could go on and on about the benefits of a family meal together, but since most people know at least one of the statistics, I won't.
We managed to get schedules, which for at least last week and this week,
  allow all four of us to be home for lunch.

Casa Swann Summer Meals Together Menu
  • Grilled flat bread sandwiches (chicken and/or veggie)
  • Salmon cakes/ kitchen sink salad
  • Taco Salad
  • Grilled flat bread pizzas /mixed greens chef salad

Grilled flat bread sandwiches are a summer staple at our house. They are easy to make, low fat and very savory.  I am sure I have posted the recipe before, but here it is again. Joseph's stone ground wheat bread is my favorite. 

Grilled Flat Bread Sandwiches
serves 4

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 med zucchini (med sliced)
  • 1 med yellow squash (med sliced
  • 1 medium onion (peeled and cut in half)
  • Olive oil
  • Seasoning of choice (I use Alchemy Spice Mediteranean)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 package Joseph's or other flat bread
  • 1 cup greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 glove garlic, diced
  • 1 tbl. dill
  • spinach or other green

In a bowl, combine chicken breasts and olive oil to coat (about 2 tbl). Add 1 tbl. seasoning and salt and pepper well. Allow to sit approx. 30 minutes. Meanwhile on a plate, coat veggies with cooking spray or olive oil and season and salt/pepper as well. Heat grill.  Combine yogurt with dill, garlic and 1 tsp. seasoning. Salt to taste. Cook veggies over low, turning once.  Cook chicken over indirect heat until cooked through. (remove veggies while still firm, but be careful not to burn). Allow chicken to sit for 5-10 minutes after removing. Slice veggies and chicken. Serve on flat bread (which can be grilled for a few minutes as well) with spinach.

Easy and yum.
