I made Skillet Chicken in a Thyme Red Wine Sauce from Pioneer Woman the other night. And as I was chopping and mincing and sautéing away, I was smiling to myself, not only because I was about to serve my 2 year old wine sauce but because I was pretty proud of myself for using ingredients such as fresh thyme, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms in our dinner.
This was an outside of the box recipe for us. It was delicious!!!
Besides the mushrooms, Bogie scarfed it down and Monkey wasn’t too far behind.
As I become more and more comfortable in the kitchen and research more about healthy eating habits it seems like taking the leaves off of fresh thyme and using seven vegetables in dinner is the sensible thing to do. Of course I followed it up with a snack size Almond Snickers, but the boys ate Pumpkin Muffins for dessert. Which count as another serving of vegetable, right?
And we may have cereal for dinner tomorrow or maybe even hamburgers and fries because it will be Friday night and I’m not cooking then. But after that we need to get back on track.
What’s your family’s favorite healthy dinner?
