Green tea

Tuesday: Chicken Tacos
Refried Beans

Reflections from the Backcounter

More chicken leftovers. I was able to make a big batch of chicken tacos using the last of the two chickens cooked on Sunday. Another night where a quick dinner was a neccesity. Chopping the chicken into small pieces and combining it with salsa and grated cheese in a skillet makes a delicious filling for tacos. The usual toppings were served and everyone had a great dinner. It was quick to prepare and the taco bar on the backcounter was a quick way to serve. We ended up serving eight for dinner as we had unexpected guests and a good time was had by all.

We have decided to add green tea to our diets. Interesting evidence in the medical literature about the benefits and possible impact on cancer risk . There are some case reports of improvement in four chronic leukemia patients from the Mayo clinic who added green tea to their diet. No hard science yet but trials are underway through the National Cancer Institute. Seems like an easy way to add benefit.
