K.I.S.S. “keep it simple student” is something I hear often in my programming class.
Yes, I am a student – at my ripe old age!
You see, in the quest to never stop learning, I enrolled in a web development program at a local college at the beginning of this year.

Somedays, I seriously question my sanity for embarking on this journey.
Other days, I am so excited about waking up the left side of my normally design-oriented-right-brain in these left-brain-provoking, programming classes.

The professor in one of my programming classes has been reminding us of the importance of the acronym KISS since day one.
He often brings up Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s quote of “perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

After listening to that quote for almost two months – I can say that it is finally sinking in.
I’ve been trying my darndest to keep things simple, and not to add in all the pictures and all the sounds on a trial site I have been building from scratch.

And, those days when I’m up to my eyeballs in trying to figure out what am doing wrong with a piece of code, I try my darndest to keep things simple in the kitchen for dinner as well.

As my daughter has been doing the vegetarian thing, those nights when I want a quick chicken dinner and don’t want to cook some chicken just for myself, I stop by my neighborhood Kroger and pick up a package of Tyson Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips. Tyson chicken believes that it’s “the simple things that make life, and chicken, great.” Tyson chicken contains no fillers, no preservatives, and no added hormones or steroids. Just 100% real stuff!

I like pairing Tyson Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips with roasted veggies for me and chickpeas or tofu for my daughter. Recently, we stumbled on the pure joy of eating roasted veggies such as potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower that have been brushed with some Wish-Bone Italian Dressing before being roasted. No other added spices – just Wish-Bone Italian Dressing and a squirt of cooking spray and simple scrumptiousness on a baking sheet!

While we were at Kroger recently picking up Tyson chicken and Wish-Bone Italian Dressing, my daughter found some uncooked TortillaLand Corn tortillas in the refrigerator section by the cheese and queso and suggested we bake them up into chips to enjoy with our bowls. But, I figured strips would work better. While we found these TortillaLand Corn tortillas by the cheese and queso, they can often be found in the refrigerator section of the Hispanic Foods aisle at your local Kroger store.

Now, while I enjoyed my Wish-Bone Italian Dressing brushed roasted veggies and Tyson Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips in a buddha bowl, these same ingredients can easily be enjoyed in a cooked TortillaLand tortilla – as a easy, portable, burrito or wrap or even a pizza! Which would be perfect for children or picky eaters who seek variety – don’t you think?

  1. Is that what K.I.S.S. stands for?? 😉 I like it! It’s seriously awesome that you enrolled in a web dev class! I’ve often thought about going back to school, and I’m not gonna lie, the thought excites but moreso scares me! You kick so much butt for going back. Seriously. Anyway, I love the idea that simplicity is the ideal. It’s something I try to be mindful of everyday. Your buddha bowls look like the definition of delicious simplicity! Wishing you lots of success in your class! Can’t wait to hear more about it, Shashi! xoxo

  2. I have never heard about KISS phrase. And so glad that you enrolled in a web development program. 🙂 I love buddha bowls and this one looks so pretty and delicious, Shashi. Spicy roasted veggie and chicken sound like a great pairing.

  3. Oh yum this is soul food right here! I eating chicken with roasted veggies practically every night, but there is something about this buddha bowl that makes me swoon with excitement! I love that you transferred the KISS approach to recipe development a well 🙂

    I need to try these Buddha bowls soon. This sounds so good and filling. Also…I have never heard that KISS phrase but your professor is right, I love the simplicity when things get crazy.

  5. What a great dish Shashi. And I love that your professor says KISS — as in student, and not STUPID. That is how someone introduced that quote to me, and I, was the stupid. I’d much rather be a student than stupid, my friend. Love hearing about your web designing class. You go girl! I also love Wishbone on anything. Always delicious and flavorful! Have a wonderful week my friend. XO

  6. Looks very healthy and delicious!

    They look lovely and so versatile too – leftovers would work well in a lunchbox wrap next day.

  8. I had never heard of the K.I.S.S phrase!! I needed that pinned to my computer when I was at university; would have done wonders to keep reminding myself of that!! This looks absolutely delicious by the way; love all the flavours and those tortilla strips. Bet they add a lovely crunch!

  9. This is one delicious looking buddha bowl. I love the quote about perfection – must remember it! 🙂

  10. I use that acronym too, Shashi, only mine stands for something a little different….I often remind myself ‘KISS’ or ‘Keep It Simple Stupid’ Hahaha… I have a little chuckle every time I say it. That little quote from David’s dad up above is a good one too….I’ll have to try to remember that one 😉 Usually I try to keep a notebook handy and whenever I hear a good one, I’ll jot it down. I love bowls like this and that chicken is just too convenient. Perfect for weekday dinners! Love the tortilla strip addition for some crunch and flavour. All kinds of deliciousness in this one for sure 🙂 P.S. I remember a long time ago taking a computer programming course in university and that was capital R – rough! Ugh. Like another freakin’ language! So congrats to you, girl! Have a great weekend, my friend! xo

  11. These chicken bowls look freaking amazing! I also love the tortilla strips on the side. Yum!

  12. These buddha bowls sound amazing, Shashi! I think your professor’s quote has finally set in…and you’ve applied it perfectly to these bowls! 🙂 (On a side note, my Dad is a professor, too…and his favorite quote is “Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.” Haha!) I’m mega impressed that you’ve gone all-in with those programming classes. Are you going to write your own site now? Let’s do this: You make me these buddha bowls, and I’ll sit and read everything on your new site. Deal? 🙂
