I spent 2 hours in the concession stand at our local highschool tonight, trying to be a good parent volunteer. My wife does it all the time and is kind of the Concession Czar, organizing the food, the volunteer parent staff, and even attempting to vary the snack menu with healthy choices like yogurt and granola bars.
The healthy stuff does not sell well.
Ask me about the hotdogs, nachos, and fries.
I was the hotdog griller/ french fry fryer.
I had 2 commercial fryers going and could not keep up with the demand for fries ... CHEESE fries. Grease soaked french fries with a ladle of nacho cheese sauce dumped on top.
I could not wait to get home and cook something healthy.
How about this?
A chicken breast coated with some Cajun seasoning, sauteed in virgin olive oil, brown rice sauteed with a little olive oil and garlic then cooked in chicken broth instead of water, and some black beans right out of the can, but simmered with some chopped garlic, oregano and thyme.
A few peppers for some color and contrast and a glass of cheap screw top wine.
Well, maybe two glasses.
