(This was supposed to be posted Monday evening, but health stopped that, so there will be multiple posts on one day to catch up with what I've done :p ) Did you have a manic Monday? Mine although not busy felt manic, and I think that was largely because of my wonky sleep schedule. I didn't sleep on Saturday night and tried very hard to stay awake, to the point that my roommate was worried about me using a stove lol, but then around 2 o'clock I knew I had to have a nap and then I didn't wake up until midnight. When Nathan heard this that night he thought for sure I would not be getting back to sleep, but thankfully my eyes got tired around 2am and I snoozed off and on until the morning. I am hoping the tonight my body gets back to normal, or as close as possible because clearly the schedule I am on is not healthy :(
As I told you all a few days ago I am going to be making my wonderful grandparents dinner every few nights, and tonight was the first time! They choose chicken to be the protein and left the rest up to me, which had me thinking all weekend about what I wanted to create for them. One of the first ways I learned to cook chicken was with vegetables and mushroom soup in a casserole dish, so that is what I decided to do something simple and delicious (starting to think that is my signature). I knew what they had in regards to rice and some veggies but I wanted some green veggies in there as well, and on Sunday I picked up a head of fresh broccoli and knew it would make a perfect addition. So this recipe is one that is very versatile, you can add or change the veggies and soup, and serve with rice, potatoes, or even a salad.
