Although I really enjoy cooking, I don’t do it very often. It’s hard to be creative cooking for one – not to mention no matter how hard I try to cook a normal portion of food, I always end up with enough to feed 10 people. Not being a huge fan of eating the same leftovers for a month, that tends to result in a lot of waste that I just don’t feel good about.
The other night, however, I made one of my favorite summery meals: Lemon Pepper Chicken, Broccoli, and Corn on the Cob! There was going to be some rice too, but I overcooked it…I burnt instant rice in the microwave…who does that?? (Rice is my biggest cooking challenge thanks to “uber stove” but that’s a story for a different post.)
It looks kind of odd colored and slightly unappetizing in this picture, because the lighting in my dining area/kitchen SUCKS, and the walls are painted a limey/apple green – the combo of which tends to leave a weird cast over any picture taken in the room – but I promise it was delicious!
What are some of your favorite summer meals? Do you have any awesome recipes for one you’d care to share?
