My Very Exciting Life
That may or may not have been written with my sarcastic font. In addition, if you follow me on Twitter, some of this may be a repeat.
First, let’s talk food. I have been cooking like crazy this week. Well, I take that back. I cooked all day Sunday so that I could just reheat food throughout the week because last week tears might have been because I didn’t know what I wanted to cook, was too lazy to cook and then when I decided what to cook I didn’t have the ingredients on hand. Sigh.
My first recipe was for Cider Glazed Chicken which I came across on the blog elefantitas alegres via Cooking Light. (This one I didn’t bake and freeze.) The flavors were really good, but for some reason mine didn’t have so much of a glaze. From the pictures on both the blog and the website it appears that I needed to have a sauce to pour over. I am guessing mine evaporated. There was nothing. I think with that this meal would have gotten an “A.” I would give my version a “C.” I did make a ceasar salad (from a bag – a girl can only do so much), which was totally rocking an “A” rating.
Dessert that evening was pretty darn good.
I have been pretty obsessed with chocolate covered strawberries lately. I just buy this in the baking aisle, heat it up in the microwave and dip.
Last night I had a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity (where I totally rubbed elbows with Trisha Yearwood and talked to her for a full five minutes), so Tommy and I just went out for dessert.
I hadn’t been to Freshberry in awhile, so I was surprised to see the cupcakes! They were pretty darn good. I did some research and Freshberry has now started offering Small Cakes Cupcakes. I got the Birthday Cake Cupcake. It definitely would get an “A” rating, which is saying a lot…I am one hard cupcake lover to please.
On Sunday my sister came over and we did some of our make and freezing together and we made these Enchilada’s that Lindsey blogged about. Tommy and I both liked them and I loved that they hit most of the major food groups: protein, vegetable and carbohydrates. Basically, the lazy man’s way of cooking – no sides!
Now I am just getting to random photos, but I had to show you guys my azaleas. Have you ever seen any prettier? And I have to give a shout out to my hostas – they look pretty amazing, too.
Lastly, today I dropped by Channel 2’s studios and I think I may be giving their anchors a run for their money. What do you think?
I think I look like a natural! Ha!
