In the absence of wasting time on facebook in the evenings, I've found myself being a little more productive. Not as productive as I SHOULD be, but I'm a work in progress.
Some of my most recent adventures:
Herb-roasted chicken with potatoes and peas
(REVIEW: Larry liked this more than I did. I liked the potatoes because they got crispy. I would make it again but add a little salt to my piece of chicken.)
Spicy fish taco bowls
(REVIEW: Loved this. It was spicy but the rice helped calm it a bit.
Sesame-soy broccoli (with teriyaki chicken)
Bone-in chicken breasts were on sale for $1/lb, so I stocked up. Hence the plethora of chicken related projects. (REVIEW: Meh. I forgot fresh broccoli so I steamed frozen. Flavor was good but I want to try again with fresh.)
Non-cooking related tasks include:
1. Rainbow fruit plate with a pot of gold
I felt like bringing something to an all day training event we were having at work, so I made this. We are on Spring Break next week and I won't be able to bring anything cute for St. Patrick's Day, so I did this instead. (Get it? Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow???)
2. Cleaning my closet....round 1. I have challenged myself to do at least 3 rounds. The first round was the obvious stuff... the shirts I am too old to wear, the shirts and pants that are just not ever going to fit me anymore, and a few things that have just been in my closet for way too long. I found a site called poshmark and took some clothes to a consignment store to see if I can sell anything . If not, I'll give to appropriate charities.
3. I'm on track and have sent birthday cards for every family birthday so far.
4. Unfortunately, extra time without logging into facebook has also caused me to do a little online shopping. Everything has been on crazy sale (6 rolls of paper towel for $3!) but it still adds up. I finally found a chambray shirt after looking at every. single. one. on the internet.
I wanted actual chambray instead of jean. It hasn't arrived yet, so we'll see if I really like it. That was my final purchase and now I am done.....
