how to have a quick decent meal

Pick up some fresh spinach leaves at the grocery store.

Pull a boneless skinless chicken breast (actually, about a quarter-size cut of one, around 6 oz. or so) out of the freezer. Defrost it in the microwave, cut it into chunks, add a little salt, pepper, and basil. 

While the chicken was defrosting, peel a couple small garlic cloves, and dice up a couple small scallion (green onion) stalks.

Heat a medium frying pan to medium. Add some olive oil, probably around 2 tablespoons. 

Lightly smash the garlic cloves, put them in the pan. Wait a minute or so, add the chicken chunks. Cook them, stirring occasionally, for four to five minutes.

While that's cooking, pull the leftover alfredo shells & cheddar (Annie's brand) with scallions (added by me) out of the fridge, reheat that in the microwave for 90 seconds. 

After the chicken's been cooking for about five minutes, add the scallions. Let that go another couple minutes, until the chicken looks done. Then add a couple large handfuls of the spinach, and stir that around quickly until the spinach wilts, about a minute at most. 

Empty the pan out onto a plate, add the reheated shells to the plate. 

Really simple, fairly quick (if I'd had to cook the pasta fresh, that would've added a lot of time), and surprisingly tasty for something so simple. Yay! 

And now I should be at worst just a few minutes late for the opening act at tonight's show: Man or Astro-Man?, with the Octopus Project opening, at the Crocodile. This should be pretty awesome. I may post a photo later from the show, if I can get a good one of Man or Astro-Man?, but I decided to post this now so that I'd be done for the day.
