I’ve seen it mentioned in a few of my clean eating and healthy cook books but honestly, I never even thought of Farro as an option for me. I refuse to shop at specialty stores and I try to use only common products that I can keep in stock and purchase from a typical grocery store.
I’ve never had a tuna melt. Is that weird?
I guess that’s what happens when you grow up not liking mayonnaise. I never ate tuna salad or egg salad or chicken salad. Honestly, they always kind of grossed me out.
Then I realized.. hey.. why does tuna salad have to be made with mayo?
I have no idea where this idea came from. I was hungry. It was lunch. I had Brussels Sprouts.
That was all the catalyst I needed.:)
I decided to use a slice of real bacon to add flavor and little fat that would help sauté the sprouts. I’m trying not to fear the traditional “off limit” foods of typical diets. One slice of bacon is not going to kill me.
WOW was this good.
I mean seriously good.
It’s not vegetarian so don’t start throwing stones. I’m calling it a Garden Vegetable Burger because I use the new Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread.
I drink water 99.9% of the time but every so often it just doesn’t cut it. I want something else. Something more. Something slightly sweet.
Today was one of those days.
I decided to make a refreshing drink based on the famous Arnold Palmer, half lemonade and half iced tea. There was only one problem, well two, I have no iced tea or lemonade.
The other day I made a whole chicken on the grill in pieces. It was delicious! Just a little BBQ sauce and an open flame is all I need to make The Husband happy in the dinner department.
I also picked up a few ears of corn from the grocery store. They aren’t in season locally yet but when I saw them I couldn’t resist. Nothing says, “Hello Summer!” like corn on the cob and BBQ chicken.
I’m trying hard, REAL HARD, to feed Little Bean what we eat at dinner. That’s it. End of story. Case closed.
I make chicken, broccoli and noodles. He gets chicken, broccoli and noodles. I make hamburgers, beans and corn. He gets hamburger, beans and corn.
It sounds so easy, right? Read the rest of this post
