Welcome To The Bitchery

Brightersides’ comment in the OT made me suddenly realize the amount of junk food I’ve been eating. Between stress and sick kids, other people’s schedules and having company over, I don’t think I’ve had a vegetable* in 3 days. Pretty sure the 3 dehydrated carrot chunks in a ramen cup don’t really count! So, tonight, I cooked actual food.

I diced and sauteed a large carrot, a bell pepper, and a sweet onion. Then that went into a 13x9 pan on top of 3 cups uncooked brown rice that I had tossed with salt and olive oil. I browned a pound of ground turkey seasoned with poultry seasoning and 5 roughly chopped cloves of garlic. Added that and the juices from it to the pan, poured in 5 1/2 cups of boiling homemade turkey broth, covered the pan and popped it in the oven for an hour.

*chef’s kiss*

II’m so glad I learned how to make rice in the oven. It comes out so well and even I haven’t burned it yet (stovetop rice and I don’t get along!)


So, tell us... what did you have for dinner? I hope that, whatever it was, it was delicious! (There will be no shaming if it’s cheese puffs and Mountain Dew because that’s what I had for lunch.)

* I lied... there was a spoonful of salsa on my nachos last night!
