A Little Recipe For A Little Home

So yeah, I’ve been working on Oliver’s Nest through these last sunny days of late Summer, but this post is about a little recipe I made up.  It’s probably been created a thousand times over by others, but I like it so much I thought I’d share it here in case it’s a new idea for you.  It’s simple and flexible, and yummy!

So, first you need either a bottled chimichurri sauce or make your own.  Glop about 1 tablespoon into about 1 cup of either sour cream or plain yogurt of whatever brand or style you like (I prefer a thicker, organic yogurt myself).  If you like garlic, add some finely minced garlic to the sauce.  I like garlic so I add about a teaspoon to it.  That’s step one.

Next, cook some kind of meat or meat substitute without anything other than maybe some salt and pepper.  The last time I made this I used skinless chicken thighs, baked without seasoning.  If you like, cook up some type of vegetable that you think will go with the meat/tofu/fish/whatever.  That’s step two.

Step three is to pour the sauce you mixed up over the meat and veggie/s, and salt and pepper it if you like.  You can first cut up the meat, or leave it in larger pieces.  I like to cut it up so the sauce gets all over (like I said, it’s yummy).

Eat.  This is great hot or cold, and can be really low-fat if you use low-fat yogurt.  It tastes amazing on all the vegetables I’ve tried, and seems to get better after a day or two.  Warning:  cats apparently love this too.  You WILL be watched.

Hope everyone is well this fine Fall day!
