Last night I made chicken tacos for supper.
I wanted to clean my apartment and the cable guy was coming in the afternoon to fix my phone, so yesterday morning I cut the chicken up and put it into a container so I’d have that ready to go.
Then when I was ready to eat I warmed the taco shells in my Breville oven. I added the cold chicken, cut up tomatoes, spring greens (my favorite form of salad) salsa and Pepper Jack cheese.
Then I fixed pinto beans with lots of good seasoning. It was a good meal. I had skipped lunch (I know; a no-no) and was really hungry.
Typically when I clean my apartment I’m tired and just get food out or delivered. But having the chicken already prepared and ready to serve made for a quick meal.
I’m certainly not a very creative cook, but I’m trying to stretch my boundaries. I guess preparing chicken tacos is about as easy as it gets!
I think next time I might try black beans instead of meat. Or chunks of veggies. I’m not that fond of beef.
That way I’d probably already have the staples to make tacos on the kitchen shelves.
It’s snowing and Ivy is at the patio door swishing her tail like crazy because she is excited. Or maybe she sees a leaf and that’s got her all wound up.
Charlie of course is tucked in tight beside me in the recliner. He hasn’t been sick since I took him to the vet on Thursday.
