One of the nice things about the Christmas holiday is that I have some time off and the hubby is usually working from home. We actually get to spend some time together and enjoy a slew of home cooked meals. Since the weather has been warm, albeit rainy, we have been putting our grill to work most nights.
I marinated some boneless, skinless chicken in a teriyaki marinade and the hubby grilled it for me while I steamed up a batch of white rice and thin cut green beans.
The marinade made the chicken both flavorful and tender. This is the hubby’s plate, the boy loves his rice, I keep telling him, he needs to eat more vegetables, less starch and protein, but it falls on deaf ears! My plate looked decidedly different, only half a chicken breast, a small scoop of rice and a ton of green beans. Ah well, the difference between men and women, I guess! It was a nice change from the heavy, calorie laden holiday meals. Not saying I didn’t enjoy every single bite of those heavy, calorie laden meals, because I totally did, but now I need to get my eating back on track!
