Hetty’s food talk Saturday


Hey everyone!

It’s Saturday, we’re well into the weekend and it’s great so far. We got some good weather going, and tomorrow we might even be able to eat out in the backyard for the first time this year. yesterday I was exhausted after my appointment at the doctor’s office, I just got another sinus infection but it’s not a big deal I got some medication and I know it will all be fine, I barely got any sleep from Thursday to Friday so when I got back home I was sleeping before I even knew it myself. Anyway let’s not talk about my boring and exhausting Friday let’s focus on today.

Today is a wonderful Saturday, the sun is shining and I’m enjoying my coffee, I just went to the local garden center, and I bought three new herbs. Spring and Summer are what I like to call “Herb Season” The thing is that during the winter I normally buy bunts of fresh herbs in the local grocery store, why? because if I buy a herb plant during the winter it’s dead before the week is over. But during the Spring/Summer, I plant my herbs out on the patio in our backyard and they love it there. The herbs I have I decided to buy today was Oregano, Rosemary, and parsley. I do have a lemon thyme outside that actually survived the winter so that’s good news. Lemon thyme gives such an amazing aroma and flavor and I love using it in a variety of dishes, marinades, vinaigrettes etc.

Today I made chicken fillet served with a stir-fry vegetable mix and fires, it was amazing. I used an all in one chicken seasoning blend from Santa Maria. I really loved the flavors the spice blend gave the chicken. the fires went into the oven, I used a pan to heat up the frozen stir-fry vegetable mix. It was an easy dinner to make and it was delicious. Easy doesn’t have to be unhealthy or taste wired. Easy can be good, amazing even and healthy as well.

Tomorrow my mom is cooking dinner, which gives me the time to plan next weeks dinner menu. I already got a couple of ideas but I have to check my budget if it’s going to work out or not, but hopefully, it will work out that is.

Enjoy the weather of New York, 70 degrees and a blue sky, it can’t get better than that. The small things in life it was makes it amazing. If you’re in New York, Alabama, L.A, Washington, Alaska or Hawaii remember to enjoy the small things in life even if it’s just the good weather or a good meal.

I ‘ll talk to you all tomorrow, for now, I’m spending the evening having a family movie night and we’re going to watch The Hobbit; The Desolation of Smaug.

I hope all of you have an amazing day wherever you might be and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.
