Day 125 - You Are What You Eat

Lunch - tossed salad and yogurt
Dinner - chicken and pasta with brussel sprouts

OK, OK ... I also had 3 doughnuts.

Day 124 - Willie, Willie, Willie

Ben and Jerry has a new flavor, Willie Nelson's Peach Cobbler. The ice cream is slightly evil (I have no power over it's siren call), just like the food at his restaurant, Texas Roadhouse. A perfect evening would be a steak dinner followed by this ice cream. Num...

I roll sour cream cookies so thin they are translucent. You can't reuse the dough since it becomes tough but the local wildlife is happy to pick up the remainders.

I woke up to left over popovers; it's a good day.

Dinner was leftover baked potato, rib-eye and green beans.

Day 119 - I Don't Like The Brown Ones

My dog Zelda doesn't like the dark brown kibble in her bowl. She spits them out and leaves them everywhere. Fortunately my other dog, Marilyn, prefers the dark brown pieces and cleans up Zelda's trail of rejects.

I made popovers this morning.

Lunch/dinner was prime rib, popovers, green beans, and baked potato. Desert was fudge and Christmas cookies.

Day 118 - Finals Are Over

Life has been a little hectic and I haven't kept up with the blog. I got the flu, then a cold, then working while attending school full time caught up with me. I've spent the last few days watching trashy movies and reading anything not school related.

Day 84 - It May Be Chicken But It Tastes Like Fish

My husband sweetly decided to make dinner, there were just a few problems. He wanted to make orange chicken with carrots which takes a total of 30 minutes on top of the stove.

1. He baked chicken breasts for 3 1/2 hours
2. He didn't make an orange sauce, he cut up an orange and baked it with the chicken, peel and all.
3. He baked something acidic in a cast iron pot so it took on a metallic taste.
4. He never tasted the dish before serving it.

We gamely sat down to eat but I cracked after a few bites. I started laughing uncontrollably and declared it one of the 10 worst meals ever, even the dogs rejected it.

This was right up there with the radish kabobs he made but didn't beat the rice surprise we had at an acquittance's house.

We were excited to go to this couple's home to try their authentic African cuisine. He made a soup with fish heads and there was a rice dish with an entire fish, including scales, covered with a bed of rice. I was the first served so I go to scoop out some rice and hit a solid object. The spoon included a healthy portion of fish scales, skin and reveled a fish looking up at me.

Breakfast - oatmeal
Lunch - chicken and asparagus
Dinner - ugh....
