I’m trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight. I’m still really tired although it’s better than last week! Last week I could have slept all day, day in and day out. This week it just feels like it’s late in the evening even in the middle of the day. It’s either a bug that I’m fighting very slowly or a side effect of my medications that were increased about a month ago.
Anyway … back to dinner. Do I make something with the boneless chicken breasts that are thawing in the fridge or do I wait and heat up the frozen veggie lasagna that’s in the freezer?
What I’d really like to do, if I can sum up the energy, is cut u the chicken into bite sized pieces and saute it in a frying pan. While the chicken is cooking I usually make a home made tomato sauce and pasta (Fussili or Penne). Once the sauce is done and the chicken is cooked I pour the sauce into the pan with the chicken and let it simmer for about five minutes. I sometimes also steam some broccoli or another veggie to add to the pasta dish. Once everything is done I serve the pasta and top it with steamed veggies and the the chicken and sauce mixture.
It’s a great meal … if a little messy. I always seem to have to clean the glass tiles near the stove after making the sauce. This mixture seems to splatter more than when I make other dinners with tomato sauce. Why I don’t know!
If we had spinach I’d make this herbed pasta with spinach – yummy!
As good as that dinner sounds I’m not sure that I have the energy for it right now … maybe I’ll go on the hunt for some other tasty and easy recipes and see if there’s anything else I can whip up for dinner tonight. Any suggestions?
