Last night, for instance, I had planned to try out a new healthy recipe for my family -- my Mission Family Nutrition goal for this week.
Until my kitchen sinks backed up and my dishwasher overflowed Wednesday night -- rendering both unusable. With no plumber in sight until Friday morning.
So we went to Quizno's instead.
See, I told you we didn't eat perfectly.
So, while I was hoping to share a new recipe that my family gave rave reviews (a risky proposition at best), I'm sharing the new recipe I will try this weekend:
I found this recipe on EatingWell.com. Here's the link to the recipe on the site. It sounds delicious, healthy and different.
Barbequed Chicken Burritos
1 2-pound roasted chicken, skin discarded, meat removed from bones and shredded (4 cups)
1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed, or canned corn, drained
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
4 leaves romaine lettuce
4 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
2 limes, cut in wedges
1.Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, barbecue sauce, beans, corn and sour cream; stir to combine. Cook until hot, 4 to 5 minutes.
2.Assemble the wraps by placing a lettuce leaf in the center of each tortilla and topping with one-fourth of the chicken mixture; roll as you would a burrito. Slice in half diagonally and serve warm, with lime wedges.
Next week, my goal is to introduce a different vegetable at dinner this week (we tend to get in a rut). I will do this barring any unforseen kitchen catastrophe.
