I love all fancy cooking shows and cookbooks. I subscribe to a ton of foodie magazines (Has anyone seen Mario Batali's recipe for pizza dough? It has white wine! Must make ASAP!), and regularly get inspired by the fancy foods that are there.
But really, most nights you want to put something somewhat healthy, fast, and tasty in front of your family. Also something that does not involve major washing up. This dinner fit the bill.
It is lemon grilled chicken, spinach pasta tossed with garlic and Boursin and steamed broccoli and cauliflower. The children did not eat the cauliflower. Yohboh grilled the chicken, the pasta and veggies were cooked in the same pot. Sometimes, I think we go out to dinner because I just do not want to clean up the kitchen.
Did I mention that yohboh is the best griller ever?
When you have an almost 18 month old (Egads! Where does the time go?), the feeding of the child takes up a bit of time. Especially if the child wants to feed themselves. So there are a lot of finger foods she eats. This is a typical breakfast.
There is also oatmeal and yogurt involved but getting her to feed herself with a spoon really means the dog eats a lot of yogurt. The dog will not eat oatmeal. So I spoon feed her, the baby not the dog.
I am a tiny Asian woman trying to navigate the Deep South. I have a profound love of all things deep fried.
I married a man seven years my junior (WHO IS THE ROCK STAR! JAYUUH!)
I have a well developed sense of humor and a poorly developed sense of spacial relations.
I share too much, which is why I need to blog to edit before I over share with people how often I poop and how I saw my first gray hair at 24 AND IT WAS NOT ON MY HEAD.
I had a child on February 2007 I had another child in October of 2011. My life has not been the same. It has gotten a lot better.
