Simple meal when your in a pinch

So as you know I’m a little nutty and have gotten really good at doing a meal plan each week.  One way that keeps me sane is I created a folder on my webpage that I save recipes by categories etc … I told you I was nutty.  Well last week something happened that made me cry some how the folder was gone.  I mean MONTHS and MONTHS of finding recipes and saving them for later is gone.  SO I had to find a meal today in a pinch and since my neighbor didn’t have enough cans of black beans (just playing with her I didn’t want to clock out and run to the store hoping she had extras).  I had to make with what I had my house and this is what I found!

First on the list was Pasta with Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Oil from Skinnytaste.com.  This was super yummy and easy to make plus the boys love broccoli so it works out perfect (Cole had 3 helpings).

And I had to give the boys some meat so chicken came into play.  I found this Parmesan Chicken on a NEW site I found ladies check out loseweightfit.com has some great weight watcher recipes and points!

Happy Tuesday everyone hope you had a fabulous day mine was kind of long and then I had a VERY horrible customer service conversation … don’t worry that post will come this weekend.  Don’t mess with a blogger because we WILL post and let all of our friends know about it.  I think the manager thought I was joking when I said I will let EVERYONE know about this Smile.  Yes in my head I’m a real famous blogger … lol.


  1. The chicken looks extra delicious and I will even try the broccoli dish if you promise me a dessert afterward. :-)

  2. I'll eat almost anything with broccoli in it. That looks delicious! Very curious about the convo you had!

  3. Can't wait to hear about your convo...and yes to me you are a very famous blogger!!!
    Blessings, Joanne

  5. The pasta looks wonderful! What a bummer about losing your folder - did is possibly get moved and it's just playing hide and seek on your computer somewhere?

  10. That pasta dish sounds wonderful.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  11. My laugh turned into snorts!

    We went to dinner recently and a complaint came back to haunt me. I should write about it LOL I was sitting at the bar with hubby, and a girl bartender came over and said "Don't I know you?" She looked a bit familiar, and then she said, "Aren't you that chef/food writer who came into the restaurant I managed last year?" Ooops caught, and I did rag on them LOL I watched her carefully as she poured my scotch, to make sure she did not spit in it :)

  12. Oh no! I can't believe you lost all your recipes! It looks like you found a couple of delicious ones though! YUM! :-)
