My dinner actually came out and I got compliments all around!
I didn't think to take any pics.
But, I started with leftover grilled chicken that had been marinated in a mix of lemon vinaigrette and basil pesto.
To that I added (mind you, thrown together without looking in a cookbook):
*Cauliflower (frozen) lightly cooked and doctored up with garlic lemon, olive oil and Italian seasoning (the seasonings actually made the frozen veggies taste great)
*White rice (yes white, D won't eat brown) cooked in chicken broth
*Onions caramelized in olive oil with a touch of butter salt and pepper
*and finally red, yellow and orange peppers sauteed in olive oil.
*...each of those to be combined to however the eater preferred.
I think Pete said to me twice..."This is a really good dinner!"
Hooray! I can't remember when that happened last.
Oh...and the topper...I only used two pots! It's the first time I've made a nice dinner and Pete did not complain about how many pots I used!
