Balsamic Chicken and broccoli Salad


I haven't posted any new recipes lately because honestly our dinners have been very straight forward..a meat and a veggie..for the past month.  Tonight I mixed it up a little with a last minute salad that turned out super delicious! Quick, easy and family approved! 

Ingredients:
-Thin Sliced raw Chicken Strips
-oregano
-olive oil
-balsamic Vinegar
-Green Giant Seasoned Broccoli Steam Bags
-Arugula 
-Fresh Parm

Directions:
-Toss your chicken strips into a frying pan over medium/high heat.  Add about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Sprinkle each tender with oregano
-Let the chicken cook for about 6 minutes and flip to the other side.  Add more oregano.
-Throw the seasoned broccoli bag in the microwave (following heating directions on the bag)
-Keep checking chicken until its cooked through.  Once chicken is white and cooked throughout add balsamic vinegar all over the strips.  Turn heat down to medium and just let sit.  The balsamic will coat the chicken..leave on heat until desired look...we like ours to almost looked grilled. (around 3-4 minutes)
-Place a handful of arugula in a salad bowl.  Scoop out some of the seasoned broccoli and place on top.  Finish with the chicken and top with some fresh grated parm.  The parm melts on the chicken and tastes so good with the balsamic flavoring! 

*We didn't need to add any extra dressing to ours once we mixed the broccoli and salad...but feel free to add to yours!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…
