Last Night's Dinner: Arugula & Romaine Salad, Chicken Kabobs, Feta & Whole Wheat Pita
Since I began this blog yesterday, it seems only fitting that I should share what I made for dinner last night! To a fairly simple arugula & romaine salad with cucumber and celery, I added red grapes - which Brady and I both love - and sunflower seeds, which he was not so sure about at first. In the end, we were both quite pleased with it.
I am increasingly curious and cautious about the true nutritional value of cheese, but in the case of feta, my policy is this: If feta is wrong, I don't want to be right. The End.
The chicken kabobs were a little bit of an afterthought, really. I had a massive chicken breast that was waiting to be used so I kabob-ed it and cooked them in my George Foreman Grill. And at the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I love that freakin' thing. It's so easy to use and easy to clean, and it perfectly cooks meat so much faster than... Anything, really. I also use it for grilled sandwiches, but that's a topic for a different post. I am also a fan of the kabob format because in my experience, it makes a smaller (really, more reasonable) serving of meat look and feel as satisfying as a larger one. Who doesn't love eating grilled tastiness off a stick?
Do not ask about the pink wine. Big mistake.
I am not ashamed to admit that my kitchen is not the most beautiful. More unfortunately, it is rather cramped, and suffers from poor lighting, so my photog skills will need a little time to catch up. Good luck to me!
