I Actually Made Dinner!

Follow Me on Pinterest
Pinterest and blogging has made me want to be a better homemaker and wife.  I think I have stayed away from guilt, but I try to make more time to do crafts with the girls, clean the house and actually cook.  My motives aren’t 100% pure, because part of my goal is to have things to post and pin, but the results are a positive, so it’s a win-win, right?

I made dinner last night.  I saw a pin on pinterest for fajitas.  I decided we should have those.  And I even had chicken strips in the freezer.  Lo and behold, they were even fajita seasoned.

So I headed off to pick some stuff up for the week at the grocery store.  I just had to get corn tortillas, and more peppers.

Daddy was understandably concerned the girls would not eat them, so we added rice to the mix.  Turns out that wasn’t enough, they still didn’t eat it and ended up with peanut butter and jelly, so dinner was served with a nice dose of anxiety and stress, but beyond that, we ended up with a fajita stir fry.  It was yummy!

The ingredients included:

  • 20 oz package of fajita seasoned chicken strips
  • 2 handfuls of mini sweet peppers
  • 1 can of black beans
  • Brocolli
  • 1 cup of water.
  • Mix it all together and simmer.

Separately make white (or brown) rice.  Serve all together on fajita size corn tortillas.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  3. Looks good! I love simple recipes like this. I like it when I can just throw stuff laying around the house together. Fajitas are one great way I re-use chicken left overs.

  4. This sounds delicious! Thanks for posting. I know I have not cooked as much lately and I really want to get back on that horse! 😀


  5. I love Pinterest for that! I have so many recipes pinned from there! The fajitas look delish, too bad the girls didn’t want any 🙁
