Lunch today was fairly uneventful. I ran home to let the tiny puppins out (she didn’t get much of a walk this morning thanks to the monsoon) and enjoyed my food whilst finishing last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of the OC. I really don’t know why I keep watching that show, the OC seems to have gone to the dumpster.
I heated up leftover artichoke crusted chicken, some overly roasted (burnt) broccoli and cauliflower and some delicious canned green beans.
Canned cut green beans are the only canned vegetable I can tolerate, not exactly sure why, but I sure do love ‘em.
And some veggies I enjoy best drenched in garlic and burnt to a crisp. And sprinkled with cheese.
Beneath the black exterior it really is broccoli and cauliflower. I swear.
For my artichoke crusted chicken I mostly followed this recipe. I traded mayo for Greek yogurt and white cheddar cheese for romano because that’s what I had on hand. Next time I’ll probably make sure I make it with the cheddar, my version was more tangy than creamy thanks to the Greek yogurt. I’ll probably broil it a bit longer, too. I kept it on the short side since I knew I would be reheating the chicken and I did not want to dry it out.
Am I the only one that has an irrational fear of canned vegetables? I normally go for frozen if I don’t get fresh produce.
Are you hooked on the Housewives? Sadly I watch them all. I never got into Miami, but apparently no one else did either since they brought the season to an early end. Allegedly.
