The other night I made a really tasty dinner and decided I should post it. I don't have step by step pics this time, only a final picture. I really like teriyaki chicken and I saw pineapple on sale at vons so I had to do it haha. This dinner is teriyaki chicken with brown rice, browned pineapple, and asparagus. yumm!
What You'll Need: 1 thawed skinless chicken breast that has been marinated as it thawed. 1 can sliced pineapple (4 slices) 10ish asparagus 1/2 cup brown rice
First cook your rice, brown rice takes forever!
Then sautee your asparagus and set in a bowl.
Next, cook your chicken, once each side is somewhat cooked, pour in marinade liquid and cover on medium heat until sauce it thick it gone, flipping chicken occasionally.
Then brown your pineapple on the asparagus skillet.
So last night I decided to try to make healthy french fries, and they turned out good, until I left them in the oven for too long... The recipe I used said 400 degrees for 45 minutes, but after 30 they were burnt to a crisp, half were completely inedible and the other half were still not very good. So, if you attempt this either turn the heat down or check after 15-20 mins!! These fries are healthier because they are baked instead of fried and olive oil is a good fatty oil. So enjoy!!
Here's What You'll Need:
1 large russet potato olive oil to drizzle salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.
First preheat your oven, peel and wash your potato.
Then, cut your fries, I used my mandoline for perfectly sized ones.
Next, soak your fries in water for 30 minutes, this will remove the starch and allow the fries to crisp up!
After they've finished their spa time, pat them completely dry!! completely!! If they're wet they wont crisp, they'll steam and stay soft.
Then place them evenly on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil over them, and add your seasonings.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! I don't have cable so I can't watch the big game, and I am of course referring to Puppy Bowl XIII. So to console myself I tried out a new recipe. I saw a picture of this online and kind of winged it and it turned out delicious! So if you feel like treating yourself to a fun, easy, healthy, yet kinda fancy breakfast, here's a cool idea! Also, I just got a new camera and it takes MUCH better pictures than my old one so these pictures are the best yet :)
What You'll Need: 1 Avocado 1 Egg Seasonings, I used salt, pepper, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper. Grated Parmesan Cheese
First preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Then cut your avocado in half, but I made one half bigger.
Crack the egg into the bigger half, there will be spillage, as you can see in the picture. I used the other "half" of the avocado on my side salad.
Next, season away, then add your cheese.
Then put your avo/egg onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 mins.
