I love to shop from the couch. I thought I would share two of my new favorite hangouts.
I have a new toy! It took me a month to get it out of the box and play with it but I think its a winner for occasional use.
Whenever I had spotted bananas that I would not get to in time, I peeled and threw them in the freezer. I also cleaned, prepped, and stored some strawberries when there was a BOGO free deal at the store.
I let them defrost for 15 minutes…well closer to 30 after talking with a neighbor.
You put the fruit in the chute and out comes some soft serve ice-cream type food.
I added beets to my usual volcano rice/chicken/coconut milk with greens. For the rest of the week, I shall have cheery red and green lunches. 8)
Now, as I sink into the couch recovering from kitchen chaos, I am amused by the mix of commercials.
– candy, pharmacy, candy, heart burn drug, fast food, shoe inserts-
Is that like the dentist giving out lollipops?
Last last time I experimented with a new soup, I was invited to go with friends to pick up a new puppy. Well, lightening does strike twice. The puppy picture may be cute enough to help the soup picture. It looks gross but tastes really nice. I will be adding garlic next time.
The soup experiment:
Looking for a new spin on my baked chicken, I took inspiration from the food channel and made an almost pesto crusted chicken.
Combine in blender 2 large kale leaves, 3 cloves of garlic, a generous squeeze of lime, and just enough water to help the blender break it down (~1/4 cup).
Salt and pepper the chicken before topping with the almost pesto.
Bake at your preferred temperature and time for chicken.
It does taste better than the afterthought of a photo makes it look. Enjoy!
