Sometimes I get into one of those moods to cook all day. I started this morning after bringing in a bucket of fresh produce.
Then I got started on what I was planning for dinner. Chicken and Pasta Caesar Salad. This is something that my Mom has made for years. I don't have a recipe, we just use what we like. I wash the romaine and cut off the core end, and lay the leaves onto a clean tea towel.
To this, add the cooled pasta, and white meat from a rotisserie chicken, cut into bite sized pieces. Usually I use grape tomatoes, but with all of the tomatoes I have from the garden, I used my own. Add a large handful or two of roasted and salted sunflower seeds, or you can use toasted pinenuts. I do this salad using both, but I had the sunflower seeds, so I used those. Also a large handful of parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper. Toss well. (I usually put this into two bowls, as it makes so much. Then I refill the party bowl, when getting low.)
So, what do you cook when you are in a cooking mood?
