Cooking

Another night of cooking one quick healthy dinner for the entire family!  I am on a roll this week!  With the warm weather in Chicago, we decided to grill.  I threw together my favorite summer marinade on chicken breasts.  Both my children slipped on their crocs and headed out on the deck to barbecue.  They helped squeeze the lemons and flip the chicken.  My daughter who rarely eats any protein ate the chicken!  My son asked for seconds!  Grilled lemon rosemary chicken breast, lightly seasoned zucchini, and brown rice.  So delicious and refreshing!

Ooops!

A quick note- my husband was not happy that he was not included in my blogging about our recent cooking, baking, and grilling.  He gets his hands dirty in the kitchen and on the grill too!  I can tell the kids are the happiest when we are ALL involved!

Home made pizza

Today, I am proud to say, my children ate a healthy dinner.  My son’s usual request for dinner is pizza.  Tonight we kind of made our own pizza:)  With a healthy twist, of course!
We unwrapped the whole wheat crust, slathered on the sauce, sprinkled on some baby spinach, strategically placed shredded chicken breast, and loaded the pizza with mozzarella cheese.  Both my children took turns turning on and off the oven light and watched the pizza until the cheese bubbled.  My son ate three slices!
