A Friday Night Dinner

I leave work at 6:15pm after some unforeseen delays in departure.
I suck it up; I feel good about the work I’ve done for the day.
My husband is on his way home. I only see him on the weekends right now.
Friday night downtime is sacred and delicious.We talk about our weeks.
We watch two awesome TED Talks.

I make dinner.

Sauteed Chicken with Rice and Peas
Start the rice in the rice cooker. Always add a little salt and olive oil.
3 chicken breasts – rinse in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Slice thin vertically.
Heat olive oil and butter in pan, enough to coat the bottom.
1 medium onion – slice thin. Add to pan and stir until onion is translucent. Don’t burn!
Add chicken and 1 c. chicken or vegetable broth. Stir occasionally. Add 1 tsp salt, some fresh ground pepper, and juice from ½ a lemon. Stir and let the broth reduce.
Prepare peas (steamer for frozen; sauce pan for canned).
Plate the rice, add chicken, add peas.

I serve dinner. I wait for work phone calls and texts.
Husband goes to bed with a full tummy and kisses. I write my journal.
Cooking is fun. I love my kitchen. And leftovers are yummy.
Happy Friday.
