It sounds like an explosion has gone off in my house and people are scrambling around, tripping over themselves to get out.
But in reality, it’s just my 4 kids and that time of day that we call “the witching hour”. They’ve been up since 6am, been told what to do all day by their parents and their teachers at school and now, by God, they’re ready for one last “hoo-rah”.
Once we get them where they need to be, PJ’s on, teeth brushed,etc, it’s past time for the grown ups to eat dinner.
And if you’re trying to follow some sort of nutritional plan, it can be really hard not to eat the first pile of cheeto crumbs that you trip over.
But hold on, before you let all of your hard work go to waste, understand that there is a way to stick to your plan, while enjoying a tasty meal.
Here’s an example:
Spray a skillet with Pam.
Toss in 2 or 3 cut up boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
Sear on high heat for 2-3 minutes until brown on the outside.
Turn down heat to medium.
Add 1 “Saute Express” square.
Stir chicken until fully coated with the melted Saute Express seasoning.
Add 2 cups of frozen (or fresh) green beans.
Bring the heat back up to high and combine all of the ingredients.
If using frozen green beans, this will take a bit longer (3 minutes or so longer than fresh).
Once the green beans have thawed, turned down the heat to medium – low and put a lid on the skillet (with an opening to let the steam escape).
Stir and cook for another 3 minutes or until done.
Add 1/2 cup cooked rice and let that get hot (put the lid on the skillet).
