Rotisserie Chicken, sauteed Fennel and Mashed Cauliflower
Dutchie and I were discussing meal options and I said, "dr pepper ribs"! and she said
"no, something much more healthy!" So I mustered all the moxie that I had and said...
"yes, dear....something healthy is exactly what I was thinking."
Dr pepper ribs will be the next entry (maybe).
So a simple rotisserie chicken was the basis for the meal. We went to Sprouts, and bought
some fennel, and a few salad ingredients to add to what I already had.
While I was cooking the chicken, I thought that cornbread might go well with this meal.
I usually have pre-made mix, but I had nothing of the sort.
However, I did have cornmeal. LIGHTBULB!
There was a recipe on the cornmeal package, so I made homemade cornbread for the FIRST time!!!
I was happy, cause I used our new cast iron item and it worked perfectly for
3 servings of cb!
On a whim I also bought a bulb of fennel, cause I knew it would taste great
with the chicken. I was right. I used my mandolin and sliced it thin, and
did a quick sauté.
With the addition of a salad with lots of stuff from our co-op, I plated a great looking and
tasting meal. The cornbread was awesome, my portion had 3 jalapenos!
Included in the "healthy meal" ethos, was mashed cauliflower...greatness!!!
But something I've done on MANY occasions.
This meal was very nice! I loved it...simple and very tasty.
The photo doesn't even come close to representing how
tasty this meal was.
Zachary loved everything except the fennel, but I
can confidently say the the flock was fed quite well!!
