Because sometimes, microwavable meals seem boring.

I've been cooking.

And now, before you start panicking, running to the phone and calling Blake to see if our apartment has (a) been filled with the fumes of some foul experiment or (b) burned down, get a load of the finished products.

It turned out well, people. There is hope for future Walker generations. 

Saturday: Chicken, Asparagus and Potatoes Au Gratin

In preparation.
Admittedly, the chicken looks a little gross. But it did turn out well. 

Oh, and the potatoes came from a box. I'm okay with it.

Chicken Recipe:
Put large skillet on burner with a tbsp. of olive oil at the bottom. Take 2 Chicken Breasts, with skin and bones (I took the skin off of mine), place in skillet with olive oil. Cover with 1/2 c. of sour cream, 3/4 c. honey teriyaki sauce, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and an additional tbsp. of olive oil. Flip occasionally for 15 minutes. Put chicken and liquid (?Is that gross?) in a pan and cook at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked all the way through. 

Monday: Pizza and Broccoli

Yes, husband had broccoli pizza with a side of broccoli. 

The finished product. If it looks a bit doughy, that's because it is. 
Unlike most normal people, I prefer food that is under or overcooked. Or in the case of ice cream, when it is of a milky consistency. 

Pizza Recipe:
Coat pan with a layer of flour. Cut pre-made wheat dough in half. Spread dough as thin as possible without tearing. Add ingredients as desired. 
My pizza: tomato sauce, Romano cheese, Mozzarella cheese, leftover chicken, green peppers, salt and pepper.
B's pizza: olive oil, salt, pepper, broccoli and Parmesan cheese. 
Cook pizza at 450 for 12 minutes. 

This is especially exciting because my day normally consists of lunches from a box with microwave instructions on the side (No, not Hot Pockets. Lean Cuisine. Try the Butternut Squash Ravioli. It will change your life.) and a husband in the kitchen making something Italian and delicious. Most women would kill for this kind of treatment. Sometimes I'm sad that husband's talent is wasted on someone who would otherwise be satisfied with cold pancakes and Nutella for dinner. But I'm appreciative.
