Ten Minute Chicken Stew

Today's dinner was uninspired. Last night was another late night at work so I brought home a chicken that someone else had already cooked for me. I must say I'm not terribly fond of the idea of having others do elementary cooking for me but since I only have about 10-15 minutes nightly to fix up dinner I have little choice.

I started off by making a salad with the leftover tomatoes from last night and by plucking some leaves off of our basil tree then tearing off some fresh mozzarella. The basil was delicious. I think it's because I'm such an excellent farmer. I guess you could say I have a real green thumb. A wet, green thumb.

I used stewed the leftover chicken in some leftover pasta sauce and broccoli and served it over broccoli. It was kind of like the roast chicken that Jen had in Paris that was served over Spaghetti except much more pleasing than our only lackluster meal in the city of lights.

Jen was kind enough to hobble over to Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery and pick up 4 delicious cupcakes as a special surprise for me. This capped off the dinner quite nicely.

If all goes according to plan I may even cook a proper dinner on Sunday night (if I don't sleep for the entire day). It's my first day off in 14 days so I am pretty jazzed at the prospect of spending a day at home and potentially spending more than 10 minutes to cook a proper, civilized meal.

Look out, culinary world, you are about to get rocked!

Okay, you're probably not going to get that rocked.
