Don’t you just love this expression? It’s like “jeez” but a much more descriptive way to express disbelief or surprise. Old school New Yorkers are always saying this – it’s fantastic.
We used the word sheesh in our house today not as a surprised expression but rather to describe a delicious lunch of chicken and vegetable shish kebabs and steamed rice. Some Sundays we have a combination of chicken and rice, with either grilled, roasted or broiled chicken. I absolutely love it and it’s the sort of healthy comfort food I grew up with.
My shish kebabs were broiled with marinated pieces of chicken breast, onion, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms and grape tomatoes. I marinated about 2 chicken breasts and about 2 cups of 1-2 inch thick veggies with about 1/4 cup of olive oil, 4 tsbp of soy sauce, 3 tbsp honey and some garlic granules. I then seasoned the pieces with plenty of salt and pepper and left the whole bowl to soak up the marinade for about an hour.
I made up the shish sticks and then broiled everything on high for about 10 mins each side, basting the sticks periodically with the leftover marinade. When ready, I served the kebabs with steamed rice, some turmeric hummus and a little yogurt and cucumber. So good!
Rice is hands down my favorite food. I eat wholegrain brown rice during the week because in its wholegrain form rice is more nutritious (much more fiber content for example) but maybe once or twice a week I make steamed good quality white basmati rice because it’s just so delicious :). Everything in moderation right? Have a great Sunday.
