Saturday was my husband and my 6th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it has been that long- time sure flies! He hasn’t kicked me to the curb yet but I suspect that might have something to do with the large percentage of my downtime that is dedicated to feeding him.
I have a ton of swiss chard out in the garden. It did a lot better than my spinach which bolted and I thought it would be a good thing to finally get around to eating it.
Here is a quick, healthy weeknight dinner recipe. I am trying to incorporate more seafood/fish into my diet which can be expensive but this recipe uses a can of crab meat (cheap!) and just a few frozen shrimp.
Time saver- cook your pasta (I used spinach fettucine) until it is about 70 percent done, then add broccoli.
When I got home from work yesterday, my stomach was growling loudly. I had eaten lunch around 11:30 and by 6 I was starving. Hubs and I had plans to see a movie and have a late dinner afterward. I knew I wouldn’t make it so I whipped up a little snack that I may have enjoyed with a glass of chardonnay.
Spinach, goat cheese, crab dip! Yum!
Saute up some spinach in a little chicken broth, melt about 1/2 an ounce of goat cheese, and add some garlic salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Then I added a can of white crab meat and Greek yogurt.
Serve it up with some organic baby carrots and toasty bread cubes.
This totally hit the spot and I wasn’t even remotely hungry again until late. BTW we saw Rango, the Johnny Depp lizard movie, and it was really cute!
