Doesn’t that look delicious? I had a lot of fun coming up with this simple dish. The ingredients reminded me of shepherds pie, but different enough it’s more what I imagine a farmer would be eating.
I have been horrible at meal planning this year. Thank goodness that wasn’t one of my resolutions right? I was trying to go with something quick and easy last Saturday. I succeeded with both quick and easy prep time, but I forgot to thaw the chicken, so cook time took a lot longer than expected, which resulted in PB&J sandwiches for dinner that night. The chicken and vegetable’s made a great “leftover” lunch on Sunday though.
One of the fun things about this dish, was because of it’s ease to put together, I was able to recruit some help in the kitchen from Princess V. She had a rough day and needed some special time with just mom and her attention. Before we tossed everything in the baking dish, we decided to try out my new Salt and Pepper Grinder from Ozeri
. I have never owned a grinder, but I recall how fun they were as kid to twist.
The Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Mill and Grinder fits exactly what I needed. So many recipes call for salt and pepper to taste, with no measurement. So I tend to be pouring it into my hand and pinching some into my dish, and then dumping what was in my hand into the garbage. What a waste! I mean I realize a tiny bit of salt or pepper in the garbage isn’t that big a deal, but I still hated doing that. With the Ozeri Duo Ultra, I’m able to give it a twist or two, and feel confident that there isn’t too much salt or pepper.
Princess V had a lot of fun pouring the salt into the mill. It was pretty easy too! The top pops straight off, and the bottom cover converts into a funnel for the top to keep the salt and pepper separated while pouring them in.
Once we had the salt and pepper in, I let Princess V toss in the rest of the ingredients and then give a couple twists – we may have ended up with a little extra salt, and not as much pepper – of the grinder over the top. I hope you enjoy this easy farmers meal as much as we did.
