You ate them all?

Today I have curry chicken risotto.  A favorite in our house- I make it with curry chicken thighs from the night before.   Last night, I planned ahead and made an extra 6 pieces of chicken to put into the risotto tonight.  Perfect, I would come home and have dinner on the table quickly.

However,... I forgot that my teenage son would be home from school - Teacher Workday!

He called around 4pm, right around when I was thinking about dinner and told me that he had eaten all the chicken for lunch and it was really good.  In fact, he was shocked by how many chicken thighs you can eat when you do not use a fork and knife - when you just eat them like cookies!

So much for my quick dinner.

Plan B - Looks like its Meatless Monday at our house.

Took out my favorite pesto sauce from Costco and tossed it with some penne.(so much for the risotto)

Cut up some tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil from the garden and put in on a bed of lettuce and sliced some nice bread.  All from Plan A..

Dinner was delicious, quick and we all had a good laugh about the chicken while having dinner together.

  1. Joanne, this made me laugh out loud. I don't know how many times I come home, thinking I have leftovers to work with for dinner, only to discover, my husband took them to work for lunch. (Or that he has snacked on "ingredients" I needed for something else). But it's OK, I would eat pesto any time. :)
