Friday night and we just ate burgers. Big half pounders. Yum. Sorry no photo, I was busy grilling some extras for John to take to work tomorrow. Poor man is putting in so much overtime. This week has been so busy for all of us. I added a new class to my teaching schedule, and had lots of last minute prep work to do. Well, classes are over for the week, the frigid weather has moved out, and I think I'll get settled in my new schedule soon. I wanted to take a picture of the grilled chicken salad with blue cheese dressing that I took for lunch today, but I just ran out of time. Maybe I can do better this coming week. Drop me a comment or two to let me know you are still out there. Encouragement helps.
The photo above is from Wednesday. We had baked Ranch Chicken Tenders with a broccoli cauliflower mix. Too simple. Just sprinkle some ranch dressing mix on the chicken and bake or grill it. I make my own ranch dressing mix to control the starch content. These were really good. The veggies were topped with some bottled peppercorn ranch dressing to complete the theme.
I have been trying to be better about drinking green tea lately. I tasted the bottled variety and really liked the flavor. Since then, I have been trying to duplicate the taste. Not much luck yet, but I am open for suggestions from you. I bought a variety mix, so I have lots of flavors and sweetener combos to experiment with. Be sure to let me know if you have a favorite.
