Cooking is a retreat and an activity which I thoroughly enjoy! However after a long day at work, spending an hour preparing a meal isn't always feasible. At least for me, most days it's not. Lately by the time I get home I'm starved and ready to eat!
So there is always the ever enjoyable take-out (sushi and mexican are my absolute favs!) however that isn't the best on the wallet nor waistline if done too often. So during the week I use the help of my local grocery stores for assistance in making a simple meal taste 10 times better than a sandwich or bowl of cereal!
Here is a recent tasty meal I whipped up! And it all started with a salad dressing!
It literally jumped out of the cooler at me! Summer in a bottle while still in winter, much? Totes obvious right?!!! I concur! I used the dressing to marinate chicken breasts - For a grilled chicken sandwich and a side salad.
I threw the breasts in a tupperware and covered with dressing before I left for work - and then let the dressing do it's thang! Then after work it was all easy-peasy! I grilled the breast (yes, I fired up the BBQ in dead of winter - hey ask the Hubs I'm grill master!). When it was done I added a slice of cheese, lettuce, onion and a bit of guac - bc the guac was hanging out in the fridge begging to be added! While the chicken was cooking I prepped a simple salad - pre-pack salad just added fresh chopped red onion and cucumbers. Dressing then, voila!!! It probably took me 20 minutes start to eat - not too shabby and it was delish!
Do you have an simple go to week night meals??? Please share!
I have the stuffed shells recipe to share too - I just need to upload the rest of the photos!!!! They were so fun to make and equally as delicious to eat!
