fried rice with chicken
I’m not going to lie to you. It’s been a bit of a tough January. I’m with everyone else as far as the beginning of January goes…I love the fresh start of a new year and I love the slow down after the busy season of Christmas. But now that it’s the third week of January I am over it and am ready for Spring. Add that to Evelyn having an 18 month nap regression, the garbage/mail/recycling truck always coming to wake her up 20 minutes after I put her down for a nap no matter what time of day I put her down (1. how do they all know?!? do they coordinate it?!? and 2. why is she suddenly such a light napper?), the darkness of winter, and some rotten situations happening to people we know and I just feel…tired.
Easy dinners (and meal planning) have been my savior this month and this is another one. It’s a one dish meal that has protein, starch, and vegetable all inside. We love this meal (and so far Evelyn does, too…although that might change next week). And even though it takes awhile to cook the chicken, it’s mostly hands off time; once you’re ready to cook everything, it takes about 15 minutes to put it all together.
