dinner on the whim…

So tonight I decided to make something that was both delicious and good for us!
In a pan, I started by browning up some organic chicken sausage that I whipped from the casing… once slightly browned they were put to the side [until they were needed for later] and then with oils from the sausage, a quick speed date of minced garlic and chopped sun dried tomatoes occurred! It quickly turned out that these frisky guys were looking for an extra addition to their evening… so in went some buttery, plump cannellini beans! As soon as everyone got to know each other, a dash of crisp white wine helped loosen everyone up and let their hair down… an addition of a little chicken stock came to the party and everyone simmered away…
While the trio was melding together, some lonely whole wheat penne took a bath in some super salty boiling water, and then got a wink from the threesome to join them for some tossing around! After a quick stir, some parsley joined in and offered up its fresh self and dinner was served…
Creamy, buttery, vibrant and luxuriously flavorful… this was the perfect meal for any night of the week!

decisions, decisions, decisions…

On a daily basis we are confronted with decisions [sometimes difficult ones at that]… whether it be hitting the snooze button once more, what shoes to wear, what to make for dinner, as well as many others. Sometimes it’s nice to not have to make a decision, but instead have a variety of choices placed right in front of you! That’s exactly what happened tonight. Rather than having to select one cocktail from a drink menu, I was able to select a trio of little potent pleasures in a number of flavors. As if that wasn’t fantastic enough… they were all low cal too!! The trio consisted of mango, lime and pomegranate margaritas presented in a spirally tree that held everything together. Delicious and mouthwatering, while at the same time healthy and satisfying!
