Apologies for missing yesterday’s post! I had a severe case of the Mondays or something, so I’m posting today to make up for it.
This past Sunday night I was running low on EVERYTHING. It was so late by the time that I got started that I literally only had two choices: find something I could prepare quickly in the pantry or go out and grab food. My children had already decided we were having Zaxby’s and were excited. Not today kids, not today. I decided to go the unpopular route and chose to make something at home.
I quickly searched for foods that were floating around the pantry, fridge, and freezer. I manged to find a few questionable carrots, a very small bag of broccoli, an almost empty bag of rice, and a can of cream of chicken. It was like a medley of the forgotten foods! (sorry for the crappy picture. It was an afterthought.)
First, I started the instant rice on the stove. I prefer “normal” rice, but, like I stated, it was late!
As the rice was cooking, I prepared the can of cream of chicken.
I used the microwave to steam broccoli and carrots separately and then mixed them together. (They could have been steamed together, but I was busy deciding whether or not I wanted to chance the carrots.)
Once my forgotten foods were finished, I tossed everything into one pot, mixed it together, and served with fresh green beans I had made earlier that day for a family gathering.
My family LOVED it. It was so good for being so simple!
On a side note, this would also be wonderful with some grilled chicken thrown in. I may try that next time, but if you are searching for quick and simple meal, this is the way to go!
Were we hungry or did I just totally rock that one out on a whim?
I think I’ll choose the latter option!
(Sorry for the lack of quality pictures. I was just not on my game Sunday night!)
