Before we get to the recipe: There’s a Simple Living Summit going on right now, and it’s free!
Click here to get your free ticket to access all the sessions with experts talking about all kinds of aspects of living a more-with-less lifestyle.
My video session is live today, and is available free for just the next 48 hours. And there are interviews available with a whole lot of other more expert people than myself, so the free ticket is very worth the price.
On to the food talk….
Since I didn’t do any flying on a jet plane this week, I did actually try a new recipe!
As promised, I made the Arroz con Pollo recipe from a recent Cook’s Country magazine.
Since this wasn’t from my quick family cookbook, it took a little more time than some of the other recipes I’ve tried this year. But we thought this was pretty tasty, and I think I’ll probably make it again.
(I’m sorry for the terrible lighting. I’m quite ready for daylight saving time, thank you very much.)
A nice thing is that the recipe uses chicken thighs, which are very affordable.
And it calls for chicken broth, so it’s a nice non-soup way to get some more of that lovely bone broth nutrition into my family’s bodies.
Of course, I saved the bones from the cooked thighs and threw them into the chicken bone bag in my freezer for a future broth-making session.
I left out the olives and peas, and I added some red bell pepper for color (the red in the magazine picture is from the pimiento-stuffed olives).
Next Week’s Recipe
So, my friend Stacy from Humorous Homemaking shared a link to this spicy sausage pasta recipe, and when I saw it was from ATK, I decided I probably should try it.
Although, there are a number of people in my house who really do not dig spicy, so I may use regular tomatoes in place of the Rotel.
Maybe I’ll just divide it up when it’s time to add the rotel and make half spicy and half not.
We’ll see how motivated I am.
How about you?
What did you try this week? And what new dish are you planning to try next week? Dish!
