Ryan's chicken dinner


One you don’t have to make!

I arrived home last night to the most amazing aromas of yumminess! (yes, I know that’s not a real word) As I walked into the kitchen I found my husband in a full battle position in front of the stove chopping, tossing and flipping. My cranky mood instantly turned to happiness. Let me tell you, that’s no small feat. (I have a size 10! hahahaha) Alright, enough of my silliness. Let’s get down to business. He made a fabulous, gourmet 474 calorie meal, chicken with lemon-leek linguine. recipe here I am a self proclaimed picky eater and I can honestly say this meal was fit for a princess! Sooooo if you want to be a little romantic, feel like making mom happy or you’re in the dog house, cook away…This is a healthy meal, packed with flavors that won’t break the bank. ($25 to feed 6 including a bottle of chilled vino) Buon Appetito!

Ryan's dinner gone!










Things my hubby learned:

- start drinking the wine BEFORE you cook instead of after

- don’t quit your day job

- appreciate what your wife does every other day

- it’s okay if the smoke alarm goes off once, but if it goes off twice, get the fire extinguisher pronto ;)

    May I make a suggestion Nate? Since your honey is so sick, maybe you should make my “go to” mexican chicken soup tonight. I know you would love it and at the same time Heather would be cured! ;) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/mexican-chicken-soup-recipe/index.html Oh, and as a short cut, just buy a store roasted chicken and cut out the step of baking your own! Bon Appetit!!

    This looks delicious! I am going to attempt this tonight.

    What I want to know, is why wasn’t I invited over for dinner? I was cranky too!

  • Connie

    Wow – what a wonderful husband you have!
