LONG WEEKEND!!! I work at a bank. We have off Monday for Columbus Day! I got home from work about 40 minutes ago, ate a bowl of cereal and then some feta cheese, read blogs and now I’ve decided to blog myself.
I have a few pictures from the morning of the Great Race. This would be my husband, Aaron, in all his new gym sock glory.
He made an egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. I ate pb&j and drank coffee while taking pictures.
Please note the Silk creamer in the background. I normally buy Trader Joe’s brand soy milk creamer which is WAY better than the Silk brand. (Just sayin’ since this is a food blog and all.)
I already wrote about the Great Race sooo moving on to another day later in the week. This past Monday I believe. I came home not in the mood to cook but did it anyway for the sake of sitting down to dinner together as a (tiny) family. First I cut every speck of fat off of skinless, boneless chicken breasts then I dipped them in a mixture of honey mustard, yellow mustard and honey. Then I breaded them with a cornmeal/paprika/salt/pepper mixture. Then I grated a leftover chunk of cheddar on top and baked covered in aluminum foil until the meat thermometer registered 165 degrees.
Cooking chicken with a meat thermometer is the way to go. I tend to overcook meat otherwise because I’m always scared of undercooking it. Using a thermometer eliminates this probably.
I also roasted up some acorn squash and a sweet potato.
Aaron makes funny faces when I take pictures of him and not let him eat.
By the time we were done, we had just about finished off that ENTIRE dish of squash. So good. I’m roasting another one right now actually and plan to have that and yogurt and peanut butter for dinner. Big Friday night…!
Aaron is on his way home now from work. There is a stink bug attacking the window. My coworker has a stink bug in her house that she won’t kill so her and her two young daughter’s named it Stinky Pete.
Plans for the weekend include:
- grocery store for some baking supplies
- Lay around and probably watch an episode of The Tudors. I got season 1 out of the library today!!!!
- Go for a run in the morning
- Eat a large bowl of oatmeal
- Bake cupcakes
- Bake dinner rolls
- Decorate cupcakes for grandmother-in-law’s birthday
- Walk down the street and watch a home be auctioned off
- Head North of Pittsburgh to Mars, PA for dinner with parents-in-law
- Watch more Tudors
- Clean house a little?
- Cook dinner
- Watch more Tudors probably…
- Another run perhaps
- Go shopping!
- Feel guilty about still not sending wedding thank yous (I bought them at least!) while watching Tudors.
Alright off to check on the squash! I hope you have a good weekend! I hope you work for the government or a financial institution and have a long weekend also!
Cake post coming up soon and of course tomorrow’s cupcakes!
