"Rarely do I get sick," boasted I. "Usually the rest of my family goes down for the count, but I stay standing." I chalked it up to my strong County upbringing....along with all of that pond water that I drank as a kid. Well. Pride cometh before the fall so sayeth the Good Book, and this girl hath fallen hard this winter. Plenty-eth of times.
|I love this cookbook. A Christmas gift from Kevy. Many recipes of delish found here.|
This is a sick house, I tell you.
But I get it. Ten people living here. Four different work-place germs. Homeschool co-op germs. AWANA germs. Church germs. Silas' school germs. Normal life germs. Not to mention all of the germs that come with blending two different families, with six children - all of whom have several different oozing orifices that can't seem to stay out of each other's business. Such is life.
|This is one of the recipes from said book. I make this almost every week.|
You need 2 fresh squash if you wish to double the recipe, which I always do.
You could also use different coconut milk other than the canned brand.
And many people that I've talked to this winter say that it's been the same case in their homes, as well. I don't think that we are the only ones. I am just SO sick of being sick. And snot. I'm tired of snot.
Add to that, my wee Missy Miss who has had a perpetual cold for two weeks now, so she is up multiple times a night; and then chooses to be up for the DAY at 5:15 each day, and this Mama is starting to feel just a wee bit rundown. That's usually when I get sick. I need me my shleep.
|Today's recipe does NOT come from this cookbook, just so you know.|
I LOVE this Rosemary Garlic rub. It's amazing, and I add it to everything.
SO not what this post was about.
|My family eats a lot of chicken.|
We two families have got our meal thing down to a pretty good science.
Breakfast we are all always on our own. Lunch we usually eat together once Silas gets home from Kindergarten. We hodgepodge stuff together from each other's fridge and cabinets and call it a meal - usually pj on bread, fruit, veggies, hummus, pretzels, and apples are our staples. Once a week Shandy and I make the kids' smoothies for a fun treat.
|THIS is the recipe that I am posting pictures of. Just super lazy to write out the recipe...|
|10 Romas. Almost an entire head of garlic. Two fistfuls of fresh basil. Heaven.|
This is a dish that my family absolutely loves.
It's super healthy.
And it has become a weekly staple in our home.
I love weekly staples.
Take the chicken out and let it rest while you throw your basil, garlic, tomatoes, and butter in.
You could omit the butter if you wanted to be even healthier, it just makes the sauce creamier.
Let everything cook and break down until it creates this awesome sauce of deliciousness.
Serve this over whole grain pasta, shredded spaghetti squash, or brown rice.
Put some freshly grated romano or parm cheese on top and serve in a bowl with a fork.
