Menu Plan Monday-2011 Week 3
This time of year always feels like the doldrums for me. Even though I love winter, the stretch between New Years and the Princess’s birthday feels like it takes forever. There’s so little to look forward to and the weather is usually cold enough that it’s hard to play outside and you start to weigh how much you need to run the errand with how much work it is to dress every in layers to run it.
This week, we’re focusing on quick and easy comfort food to help cast off the doldrums.
From last week, I have to say that the Greek Chicken and potatoes just weren’t very good at all. They weren’t rancid or anything, but the chicken didn’t have a lot of flavor and was dry and after increasing the cooking time by about a million hours to cook the potatoes, they were still hard.
I’ve made this several times since discovering it when I was pregnant with Baby Bee. What do I love about it 1) it’s really hearty 2) it’s super flavorful 3) it’s crammed full of veggies so you don’t have to be guilty about serving it all alone. Note: it takes a long time to cook. An hour and forty minutes from bell to bell, but it’s worth the time.
