While it’s not perfect, this loaf of sourdough turned out better than my first try a few weeks ago.
And yes, it’s half gone already :)
For dinner tonight, I went pretty easy with the chicken + veggies since the bread took up so much time and prep work this afternoon.
I thawed some chicken thighs this afternoon and coated them with a mix of:
- Dijon mustard
- Whole grain mustard
- Olive oil
- Lemon Juice
- Herbes de Provence
The chicken went into a 375 degree oven once the bread was finished, and they baked for about 30 minutes.
While the bread was cooling and the chicken was roasting, I made a vegetable side dish that my mom made for us over Thanksgiving.
I cooked some sliced peppers and onions in a little olive oil until they were softened, and then added in some frozen green beans. Once the veggies were heated through, I added in some salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and the last of my garlic-almonds for some crunch.
It was a great dinner! Pretty easy, too, and the star was definitely the freshly baked bread.
But I’m pretty sure the smell of fresh bread lingering in the house is always a good thing.
Maggie just decided to snuggle down with Nick and we’re actually done with everything tonight! I folded the last load of laundry a few hours ago and put clean sheets on the bed. Nick vacuumed for me tonight while I was getting the laundry done – he’s the best.
I love heading into Monday with a clean house, clean sheets, and a good meal.
The only left to do tonight is put on my pajamas, cuddle down, and watch some Iron Chef :)
