Sooooo, I spent the afternoon today organizing, cleaning, and changing out wardrobes. And planning Vacation Bible Camp at our church, which I am running this year. This was all useful, exciting stuff (for me, anyway), but can you guess what happened? At about five o'clock the kids were wild and my tummy started to rumble. I hadn't even given a thought to dinner! To make matters worse, Garrett was out tending to the bees, so I had three little children expecting food with no plan, no groceries, no back up and little time before bed.
Not the greatest situation.
But a little inginuity and a Google search later, I came up with something. I pulled out some veggies from our CSA distribution yesterday, pulled some cooked chicken and chicken stock from the freezer (it's times like these that I am so thankful that I make and freeze ahead), and some quinoa from the pantry. The result? Dinner!
If you're interested, we made Lime Chicken, Feta and Quinoa Salad.
Here are the ingredients I had:
Here's what I did:
I thawed some frozen chicken stock I'd previously made, and added water to make it 2 cups. (You can use water, but cooking the quinoa in stock will make the taste richer.)
What have you made from "on-hand" ingredients lately?
