|Solar Green Tea|
It's another solar Green Tea kind of day here in New England! By the pitcher- 2 tea bags in a pitcher of cold water for about 2-3 hours. Or by the glass- 1 tea bag in a glass of cold water. Either way the container sits on my window sill in the sunlight. I use decaf.
|Grilled Chicken- Part 2|
To some people the word leftovers is not appreciated much. However, to me leftovers can be the beginning of another entree to be enjoyed at dinner. For example, a few days ago grilled chicken tasted great! I had a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese in the pantry and it paired so well with the chicken. We enjoyed a vegetable, too. Needless to say we had leftovers.
That brought another easy to prepare entree 2 nights later. Two Zucchinis were cut into slices, then cut in half and sauteed. Mushrooms were also cut into slices and you guessed- sauteed. (***Yes, I did rinse them under/ in cold water/ drained before slicing.) The chicken was cut into small chunks and added to the large sautee pan along with the Mac & Cheese- to heat everything. Then, I added about 2 ounces of water and stirred everything together. Without the water it may have been a bit dry. A quick trip to my spice rack for the Oregano and Basil. Two shakes of each went into my sautee pan. Then, a little more stirring. Before I knew it we were eating dinner!
This was one delicious dinner!! Two of the ingredients were leftovers! Who would know??
Now, this is a recipe that needs no specific written instructions. It's a "use what you have", sautee some veggies, add water, Oregano and Basil. Dinner was so good!!
We enjoyed it!
