So, we were at Walmart picking up some of the stuff for the month from WIC. Normally, I would have gone with the bread option for my grains, but I knew I needed to pick up something to cook for dinner with the chicken I had pulled out. So, we decided to try the brown rice instead. I haven't ever cooked with brown rice, so I opted for the instant boil in bag variety. So...the finished meal you see here is the result of sauteeing 2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts in olive oil with onion and garlic and Mrs. Dash seasoning. Then I added in frozen peas, carrots and corn that I had cooked til almost done in the microwave. Tossed it all together and added some worscheshire and a dash or two of soy sauce and voila! It was pretty tasty. The brown rice made me feel very healthy too! ;) I do have to give a nod to Jeromy as he helped with the spicing (as he usually does when I ask him to taste and "fix it" lots of times!)
I must say that I usually don't attempt a throw together kind of meal. I actually envy this most about my mom's cooking cause she can go in a kitchen and just make something out of nothing. So, tonight I just threw caution to the wind and figured if it didn't turn out decent, we could eat cereal!
My tip of the day: Even though you don't have much, you can still eat if you aren't afraid to be creative!
