I’m not sure what’s up with our weather this summer, but I can’t remember a time with so many storms. Like BIG storms. Like Direct TV goes out and I don’t know what to do kind of storms. I was planning on grilling chicken for dinner but guess what??!! A thunder storm ruined my plans so I needed to switch up my meal plan. I broke out a skillet and made Mushroom & Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken with Easy Pan Sauce. I used basic ingredients & got our meal on the table as quickly as possible.
I think part of me is still on vacation mode. I’m still living out of my suitcase. The smell of sunscreen is embedded into all of my clothes and I don’t mind. And I’m feeling the need to turn every piece of fruit in the house into some kind of frozen beverage.
Last Friday, we went out to dinner to a local Thai restaurant not too far from our home. It’s BYOB which is always a perk! The food was great. Service was interesting…. We had two different servers, both didn’t have a handle on what we ordered. It just felt kind of chaotic. In the end, we’ll probably order carry out from them so we don’t have to deal with the service again. Or I can make this Thai Chicken Noodle Salad instead. It was pretty amazing!
Happy Friday!! With Mother’s Day being this weekend, I thought I’d share a recipe from one of my Mom’s cookbooks. One of tons of cookbooks. After my Mom passed away, I learned she collected lots of things… black pants, beauty products, boxes of Triscuits. I wouldn’t call it hoarding but more along the lines of forgetting what she had, so she’d buy things thinking she needed it. Same thing went for cookbooks. I stopped off at my parents house last weekend to get some of her cookbooks and I forgot how many she had. I only grabbed a few; the ones that looked the most familiar or most used.
Happy Friday!! I’m so excited for the weekend! My husband’s brother and his wife are coming to town! We always have so much fun with them and can’t wait to spend the weekend together! Yay for family! I came across a Hunan Chicken recipe in my Mother In-law’s recipe box.… Read More
I love healthy food when it doesn’t taste like healthy food. We all know there is nothing more sad than diet food. Boring salads, bland chicken breasts, pretending that fat free-sugar free pudding is a dessert – No Thanks! If I’m going to post a healthy salad recipe, trust me,… Read More
Happy Thursday! Can you believe we have only more week of February left??!! February is my least favorite month of the year. It’s usually pretty grey where I live and besides the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to look forward to. March is on it’s way and I couldn’t be… Read More
A few weeks ago, my husband & I went to a very popular burger bar in Chicago. It’s called Kuma’s Corner — maybe you’ve heard of it…?? It’s known for it’s award winning heavy metal themed burgers, loud music and long wait times. The description I just gave doesn’t give… Read More
