Say what? We ate healthy the other night! Shhh! I don’t want word getting out.
So, here’s what happened. Friday night, I’m tired, I’m gross and all I want to do is relax. Guess who had no wine in the house? So I decided I would take a shower, run to the store for wine and come home and make dinner. Something with chicken.
But in the shower, I gashed my ankle open so badly I had to swear and hop around the apartment looking for bandaids or gauze and tape or something for about ten minutes. I patched myself up and off to Safeway I go.
And veggies. And meat is on sale!
Needless to say, I didn’t feel like cooking so I chopped up a bunch of crap and cooked it. It was so good! Ready? Here comes a recipe.
Chunked chicken breast.
Salt and Pepper
Beef broth (just a few teaspoons)
I sauteed the chicken in the tiniest bit of olive oil (don’t tell Mister!), with salt and pepper until just about done. And then added the broth, pepper, and asparagus and the juice of half a lemon. I let this summer for a while then added the squash until that was cooked through. It all blended just perfectly, and honestly, when I started, I was planning to make fajitas. I cooked it too hot, so I added broth.. If you use onion, I would personally put it in with the first round of veggies.
Anyway, YOURS should go more smoothly than mine, but it was truly delish!
We also had potato rolls with ours.. And there were no leftovers!
Also, the gash in my ankle (three days later), is still nasty. In case you were wondering.. I had one glass of wine and fell asleep on the couch but my Mister was nice enough to cover me up and scoot to the edge of the couch not to bother me, but I put myself to bed around 8pm.. What an exciting life!
