Today it was around noon when I remembered that I should probably figure out what to serve for dinner. I’m usually all over having a list of meals on the freezer door so I know my options, but one of the short people who lives here decided to annihilate my notepad and I can’t remember what was on the list.
So, I shot from the hip.
I know we had tacos on the list at some point- so I had all of the extras for that. I though chicken sounded good instead of beef and I had half a bottle of lime vinaigrette in the fridge from our beet salad a few weeks ago. I also had a few red onions and a green pepper. My first thought was fajitas.
I tossed about 10 chicken tenderloins, the sliced pepper, and onions into a bag with the dressing and let it marinade for like 4 hours. When it was time to put together dinner I pulled out my grill pan, cranked the heat to high and got to grilling up the chicken and veggies (which I drained all the extra marinade from). I also sauteed some sliced fresh jalapenos in butter, cut up a couple of avocados and a head of Romaine lettuce and threw it on a cookie sheet. The lettuce and avos got hit with fresh lime juice and the avos got some salt. I chopped the chicken and veggies as they came off the grill pan and added them to my make-shift tray. I also put salsa, cheese and sour cream on the table. We only had a couple of tortillas left so I heated up some taco shells in the toaster oven. I think Yogi Dad may have made his into a salad.
This is what I set on the table. It was awesome.
What did you have for dinner tonight?
