Saturday Night Dinner

Boy, oh boy, was dinner ever good tonight!!

This is what I had T-U-N-A!!!
There is nothing better than Tuna.
I loves me my Tuna.
Nom-nom-nom-nom! I am the happiest kitty ever.

This is what mine mombean had.
Super yummy Chicken Thighs Braised in White Wine from Millie's Mom's Cooks With Love site. It has her favorite things, Chicken, Wine, Lemon & Garlic.

She was making all these happy sounds while she was eating. The recipe calls for 2 chicken thighs per serving, but that is too much food for mine mombean coz she likes to fill up on veggies. So, on the left is just 1 with a spoonful of the yummy sauce over it. She didn't have any flat leaf parsley, but it was just great. Next time she makes it -- and there will be a next time, and soon -- she'll remember to pick up some parsley.

Oh, the side dishes ... There is brown rice & lentils at the (top of the plate). This a mombean specialty. Its 2 parts brown rice and 1 part lentils. Cook just as you would any rice, that is twice as much water (or stock) as dry. So, 1 cup of rice and lentils cooks with 2 cups liquid. Yummy.
And then there is the steamed broccoli. I know this is the part that will make my good pal Roxy jealous!

So now with full and happy tummies we are gonna go watch a movie.
Thanks you, thank you Millie's Mom for sharing such a great recipe.

Aaaaah, food is good. After mom makes a nice dinner daddy always says "food good" like a caveman. He's kinda silly, but it is true.

Looks yummy! My mum says she'll have to try the chicken recipe.

We were running low on cat food last night so I got given a can of tuna in spring water, I haven't had tuna in ages so it was nice. But don't worry I sent the humans out to buy cat food first thing this morning!

Stephanie said...

Yummy, that looks so good! We hope you enjoyed it.

Our mombean says that broccoli looks delicious. Unfortunately, the dadbean doesn't like broccoli so she doesn't get to have it too much.
