This morning I planted 30 tomato plants, then planted a few flowers around the tomatoes . . flowers that are supposed to repel bad insects. By then the grass had dried up enough that I could take Oscar out and play fetch . . then Vince said “What’s for lunch?”
I had planned to have Grilled Chicken with Avocado Salsa for lunch. I had a package of chicken breasts in the fridge but I was tired, I was hungry, I wasn’t much in the mood to deal with raw chicken. I wanted to say “Can we just go get a hamburger and milkshake?” but I knew that wasn’t going to solve the problem. What would solve the problem was to grab a jar of home canned chicken and have lunch ready in a few minutes without the grossness of raw chicken.
The recipe had a marinade but I put some butter in a skillet, added shredded already cooked chicken, then poured about half the marinade over the chicken. Done!
I made the salsa but Vince doesn’t like cilantro or raw onion so I put everything in separate bowls and he was able to fix his plate without those yucky onions or horrid cilantro, which left more for me. 🙂
My version was fantastic and I’m sure the recipe, as written, is even better but mine was quick . . and fantastic and that makes me happy!
Glad you were able to plant your tomatoes. I’ve heard marigolds help repel insects. Is that the flower you planted?
No. Not a fan of them. I feel like they attract more bugs than they deter.
I plant peredovik sunflowers, nasturtiums, borage, chives, rosemary and pyrethrum daisies.
It looks colorful and appealing, as your cooking always does. Vince is a lucky guy.
I keep telling him that! 🙂
