Stupid lousy Food Network…

Baked Chicken, plated somewhat artfully.

Today’s been a pretty busy workday. I didn’t have time to make a big production of dinner. I just rubbed some olive oil and seasonings onto a chicken breast, sealed it in a foil pouch, and tossed it into the oven for twenty minutes…like I’ve done a thousand times.

But I’ve been watching a lot of Food Network shows recently. So when it was nearly time to pull the chicken out of the oven, I found myself squirting barbecue sauce into a soup spoon and then giving it a swoosh around the plate.

And when the chicken was done, I found myself slicing it into two pieces and arranging them artfully.

Stupid lousy fricking Food Network…

    Actually don’t you put the sauce on the plate and use the back of the spoon to swoosh?

    Rosemary. Yeah. That’s it. Needs a sprig of rosemary…

    You did use EVOO, didn’t you?

    @Dave_Huston – Yeah, on top of everything else I didn’t even use the olives or the grape Kool-Aid powder. I deserved to go.

    @Rob – Actually (sigh) it did get me to sit down and savor my meal. So, yes.

    @Mike – Normally, dinner is defined as a protein and a vegetable. But this was just a quickie.

    @Prompter_Bob – Oh, man, if that’s your philosophy I really feel sorry for @Prompter_Wife…
