The Ones

I like dates like today: 1/1/10. Makes me smile.

You know what else makes me smile?



The boy was a champ and whipped up breakfast this AM while I got ready for Nordie’s. He made a scramble.

Bell Pepper + Onion


Bacon (leftover from yesterday)


Plus 4 eggs




Topped with sour cream

I heart bacon.


I had last night’s leftovers. General Tso chicken and some Mongolian Beef. No rice. Just straight up meat with a few veggies hiding.


And 2 chocolates for dessert!


The boy was a champ and got started on the chopping for dinner while I was getting off work.

Tonight’s meal plan: Chicken Parmesan


He started by chopping some onion and shallot.

Apparently the shallot was quite intense and made him cry.


Poor baby.

When I got home, I filleted a couple chicken breasts, ran them through a whole grain breadcrumb mix, and cooked them up in a bit of oil then set aside.

Next, I sautéed the onion, shallot, and a huge helping of garlic.

081 085

Added about a cup of wine and simmered it for awhile.


Then I added 2 cans of tomato sauce, salt, pepper, a dash of cayenne, and fresh basil.

097 098 100 101 103 104

After simmering a bit, and a couple of taste testings, I placed the chicken back in the pan, topped with some shaved parmesan, and simmered a bit longer.

The chicken was served over spaghetti noodles.


This whole time, I sipped on a pineapple + rum that Jodus made for me! (And gin + tonic for him!)

Dinner was superb. I’m really preferring using canned tomato sauce instead of jars of spaghetti sauce. There is more of a tomato flavor and it saves $$$.

Another drink!


And So Delicious ice cream!


We are watching Charlie Brown Christmas (cuz we haven’t gotten around to it before now!) and then heading to bed! More work tomorrow, 10-6. Boo.
