Simple peasant food...

April 27, 2009 5:41 PM 4/27/09

Since I’ve been off my feed due to stress and OMGWTFWHYISTHISHAPPENINGTOME! stuff I took the time to cook dinner tonight.

Tonight’s dinner - simple fajita style wraps consisting of:

3 - chicken breasts sliced in thin strips.
2 - red bell peppers also sliced in strips.
A dozen or so sliced mushrooms.
A couple of cloves of garlic sliced thin.
Black Pepper.
12“ flour tortillas.

I cooked the vegetables in one pan using high heat and about a teaspoon and a half of oil until they were slightly caramelized sprinkling with paprika until you could smell it cooking but not enough to coat them. I also tossed in a couple of pinches of black pepper while cooking.

Once those were close to finished I started cooking the chicken strips in the same way also sprinkling with paprika and pinches of black pepper to taste. Cooked those until they were done through (I probably should have grilled them) I turned it all off and served combined in the large tortillas.

Definitely tasty! :-)

Best thing I realized after all this? No salt in this recipe.

In other news I bought stuff to start putting my tomato plants into large pots until they’re big enough to put outside. I also sketched a design for a modern style standing planter with light that would look good with both mission style and contemporary depending on how you finished the outside. Now I just have to put one together. ;-)

My weather-station-fu has failed me. I kept checking the temp on my weather station logs and it kept saying it was too cold to put plants out...until I realized that the date in the log didn’t change. D’oh! So after a reset and a log adjustment I can track the temp properly again. (It _is_ warm enough at the moment to start putting plants out but I’m not done with the garden yet.)

The yard needs serious maintenance this weekend. I’m definitely going to have to mow with all the rain we’ve had. The grass is starting to look pretty shaggy. :-( Can’t seem to find my mulching plate for the tractor deck but I think that’s just a matter of cleaning.

The robin from last year is once again nesting in the upper spindles of our front porch. She must be the same bird as she doesn’t even bat an eye when I walk out to get the mail. That’ pretty cool actually. :-)

Light post today as I have much to do and am pretty damn tired still...
