I LOVE PRETTY FOOD

To me a dish just isn't complete with something green on the plate. I live alone and most of the time I make just plain food that I don't even need a recipe for; but there is a side of me that really likes my food dressed and a little on the gourmet side. Just because I mostly cook for myself doesn't mean that I can't have pretty food. I love pretty food and I love green food.

Have you guys visited Will's Kitchen? I happened upon his site several weeks ago and was highly impressed with his blog. He had a recipe for Garlic-Chicken and Broccoli Pasta that I really thought I'd like and wanted to try so here's my rendition:

Isn't it pretty with the green broccoli and that Parmesan cheese? It was really quick to fix up and just as I thought, very tasty too. I think I over did it with the garlic so I'll stick to just the two cloves that the recipe calls for next time I make it. Just thought you'd like to see, and if you try it...hope you enjoy!

  1. Well I love chicken, broccoli, garlic and pasta, so this looks perfect to me. I cook for myself mostly too, but I like to mix it up and make it nice. Cloth napkins and all! I haven't looked at his site before, but I'm headed there now. Thanks for the tip! K

  15. I agree with the green requirement. I let my little boys select the veggies, if I haven't planned something specific for some strange reason. They can even recite my mantra, "Two veggies, one of which must be green!" I love your chicken dish; that looks great! I can't use real garlic, because my hubby breaks out in hives, but garlic powder works well, too (and you can always add more if you want).
