Life is so funny. For example: my two year old got a hold of the cornstarch powder and “decorated” his room. I think he was trying to paint a picture of a blizzard. He succeeded. Luckily, this kind of experience just makes me laugh. Unlike others…..
I really enjoyed my dinner tonight. Here’s what I whipped up:
Green leafy salad mix (romaine, two other dark green things I can’t remember!), juice from ½ of a lemon, walnuts, honey, raisins, and a little olive oil
Grilled chicken breasts with three different spice combinations: salt and kelp (O’s or A’s), salt and cayenne pepper and parsley (O’s), salt and thyme and rosemary (A’s and maybe O’s). I used lots of olive oil and my indoor grill. Since the chicken breasts were FAT, I had to finish cooking them in the oven, but it was worth it. They were nice and juicy.
Lesson #1 – buy the free-range chicken breasts. Not only are they probably avoid free, but also they grill up much easier.
Steamed carrots and parsnips. Throw them in a bowl with a little olive oil, a little salt, and a little dried parsley. Yum!
Last but not least, toast your dinner with a little Sangria. I really loved this dinner. Now, here is the shocking part. My husband joined us. He didn’t eat any of the salad or touch the vegetable, but he ate the chicken without complaint. I can’t believe that I DID NOT try to please him, and he was satisfied with the meal.
How did he get full, you ask??? He chose to drink two big glasses of milk just before dinner. Interestingly enough (and no – I swear I am not lying), he complained of a stomachache immediately after our meal. I don’t dare point and say, “Maybe D’Adamo is right.”
But I know better. Hmmmnn.
