Ka Boom! Crack! It was quite a thunderstorm which hit our area last night. Ten minutes into the storm, we lost power. Since it was right around dinner time, we decided to take a drive away from the storm and eat dinner at the closest Happy Wok or buffet.
Three hours later with the power restored and the kids in bed, I thought "Oh no! My chicken is defrosted completely and I don't know if it will be safe to cook for dinner tomorrow night." (*So who wants to waste money or good food, anyway?) Well, forget tradition! I will use serve it for breakfast along with some pineapple.
I was worried the kids would balk or that even serving it for breakfast might not be the safest idea in the world. But it looked and smelled unspoilt, so I grilled it up and seasoned it with some simple steak salt and placed soy sauce at the table. Neither child wanted the soy sauce, but both children loved having chicken for breakfast.
For lunch, I tried a new lentil salad recipe (lemon juice, walnuts, dried cherries, salt, lentils, olive oil, etc). Unfortunately I didn't like it. Thank you frozen Ezekiel bread and frozen gluten free Rice Almond bread. I quickly whipped up some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches along with one grilled cheese sandwich. Ah well, I will search this recipe site for better lentil recipes.
