Nobody Does it Better, Makes me Sad for the Rest

We are still eating with major food restrictions this month but I was determined to eat something slightly kicked up in the taste department.  I'm all for living healthier and even more in favor of losing unwanted back fat, muffin tops, double chins and arm flubber.  But a foodie's gotta live! 
I started with browned chicken tenders, a little whole wheat flour sprinkled into a bit of canola oil, then added in onions, chicken stock, whole tomatoes, garlic, fresh oregano, thyme, black & green  olives, mushrooms, green peppers and frozen broccoli for good measure.
I put this in the oven for about 45 minutes and it was full of flavor and surprisingly rich.  All the veggies still burst with their individual flavors and the herbs added the life.  You don't miss the wine at all to be honest.  The missing chicken fat, not an issue. 

When my blog grows up I want it to be like the Pioneer Woman.com.  She has lovely step by step pictures and then a nice tidy full recipe on the bottom of each post.  Each ingredient listed with precise measurements. I like her graphics and I like the way she cooks.  I never actually wanted to do a 'teaching' blog because I myself am really just learning and have no craft or skillset to pass along, so mostly I just 'share'.  But when you see a blog done so well and the food so inspiring, I really just feel like such an amateur, no talent, lame ass.  Sigh, moan, wimper.....
