My husband came home after a 2 week trip for work. I thought our two dogs were going to burst with excitement. Leaping about like dolphins. Needless to say my husband was missed. By all of us. The kids will be back today and we get to have our family dinner before a school concert. It’s nice to get back to normal. And to have help walking our Murphy dog during the walks. During his anxiety he got a bit much the other day and I had to carry him for a distance. When he gets picked up he calms down immediately but I must have been quite the sight carrying a 50lb dog down the street. Such a dope but he’s our dope.
Earlier this week I wanted to make a light dinner for the kids and I. As my husband wasn’t here I thought I’d do some eggplant as he’s not the biggest fan of it. But the kids and I enjoy it particularly on the grill.
I did up a quick marinade for the chicken using olive oil, lemon, and garlic with salt and pepper to taste. I drizzled the eggplant with olive oil and salt and pepper. Fire up the grill and cook both ingredients until done.
While this was cooking I did up the dressing with the lemon and olive oil. Stack the chicken on the eggplant then add tomato and basil. Add the dressing and some freshly grated parmesan cheese.
It looks like a small meal and it is but it was surprisingly filling. And we enjoyed it. 🙂
