My lunch yesterday

I’m going to spare my readers of boring details of my daily life… Yes, it’s true, a sahm’s life is pretty mundane and boring. :O However I am so pleased with the lunch I cooked myself yesterday and it looked so good in the photos too!

This recipe is inspired by a recipe in Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food. Love the show. I love how he worked to change a city of its eating habits.  Can somebody get me the book please? 😉 What I do with my lunch was to use the limited ingredients I have on hand. Chicken breast and asparagus. My choice of carb would have been potatoes, except that I was too famished and had to cook something fast and I ended up with instant noodles. Not good for my expanding waistline. Everything was prepared and cook under 20minutes. The dish also cost me abt $4. Pretty awesome, I say.
