Am I the only one who loves just throwing ingredients in the skillet, turning on the heat, stirring once in awhile, and then supper’s ready in less than an hour?
Well, I’ll tell you, ‘nothin is easier!
I’ve got many skillet suppers up my sleeve, but unfortunately I can only share one with you today 😉
The next three weeks are going to be insane for me, because I will be away attending a ballet summer intensive; which is basically like an all-day camp. Gone all day, every day for a few weeks. It’s gonna be intense but I’m really looking forward to it.
Don’t fret, though because lucky for you I have already prepared several amazing recipe posts for you that I will post in my free time, when my feet are killing me from hours of dancing on my toes 😉
But getting back to Mealtime Monday, I lovee supper in the skillet. It literally takes less than an hour and yields delish results! In the skillet today we have chicken thighs, (You can also use chicken breasts) quartered red potatoes, fresh green beans (super fresh from the garden!) and big, sweet onions.
All this comes together to create, Fresh Veggie–Chicken Skillet.
Yum. I told you back in this post that there were more summery–fresh menus to come. 😀
