I didn't have time yesterday to do any serious picture taking, but I was enthusiastic about cooking a healthy meal with the kids and taking some shots along the way. This is a modified chicken cacciatore dish from a an older Hunt's cookbook. First we diced sweet bell pepper, onion, mushroom, and eggplant and sauteed them in olive oil adding in chicken tenderloins. Then we added in basil, white wine, oregano, minced garlic, tomato sauce, and diced tomatoes...oh and tricolor rotini. Simmer for about 25 minutes. Top with mozzarella cheese and enjoy!
Joey is my usual chef helper, but he was content to sit this one out and let Madi have a turn which worked out great because I really only have counter space for two helpers (one on each side of the stove) at a time. No fingers were lost in the making of this dish:-)
After dinner, I had some super heroes visit the house!
Nothing like a little mid-year Halloween fun. But, oops, some of the costumes are getting a bit small!
Thanks as always for taking a bit of time out of your day to take a look at my dailies...
