Loser, Loser Chicken Dinner?

After my afternoon class, I came home for a short break and made some lunch.  Once again, I ended up compiling a random assortment of things.  I added a few slices of chopped Golden Delicious apple to a bowl of broccoli slaw and topped it with 1 1/2 tablespoons of Makoto Ginger Dressing.

The apple added sweetness to the salad that went well with the dressing.  I also had a handful of almonds paired with a wedge of Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese:

"Have you laughed today?"

I would like to point out that those commercials really bother me.  No, lady, I’m not laughing just because I’m eating a wedge of cheese.  Moving on…

I feel bad that Corey has been getting left with the task of making dinner during the week because I don’t get home until so late.  Since I had some down time, I decided to be helpful and cook part of our dinner ahead of time, and then stick it in the fridge for later.  I grilled up two Publix Ready-to-Cook chicken breasts we bought this week.

I forgot that everytime I use the grill pan, someone gets verrrry upset…

It took me forever to find her! She was hiding under the desk in our office.

Dinner

When I got home from class, I decided to make the rest of our dinner as simple as possible.  This meant using up my favorite go-to items in the freezer.  I microwaved two sides along with my pre-cooked chicken, and dinner was ready in 8 minutes flat.

I love frozen veggies.  Especially the ones that come in some sort of sauce but are still low calorie!  I also had a small glass of Chardonnay.  Too small.

Unfortunately, as soon as I took one bite of the chicken, I suddenly remembered why I vowed to never buy that particular Ready-to-Cook item again!  It’s like putting a cube of salt in your mouth!  The ingredients claim that they are lemon and garlic marinated, but all I tasted was salt.  Naturally, I still ate every bite, but it wasn’t very good.  And now my sweet tooth is kicked into high gear!

I’m off to go finish watching Glee that I have recorded, and then I need to get started on studying for my first Microbiology lab practical tomorrow.  Scary!

What is your favorite go-to frozen food item?
