Ranch Chicken

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.

Love what you do! I'm here. Checking every day! Getting ideas, and just reading what you're cooking.

I brew Lipton green tea...there's a (orange passionflower jasmine?) green tea that is FANTASTIC! It tastes nothing like the bottled stuff, but I love it so much, that I don't think it needs sweetener at all.

Have a good weekend.

I've read that the bottled tea doesn't have the benefits using real tea does, so I hope you find something you love!
