Oof! Too much dinner!

My stepdad cooked my mom a steak and him and me salmon on the grill. It was very tasty, but I am way too full! I cooked zucchini and squash in a pan with garlic and butter and mom had made a pasta salad earlier. I also made a dill sauce. I think my stepdad … Continue reading Oof! Too much dinner!

My new treat

Okay, so clearly I have to say at the outset, not a good product if you have a peanut allergy. However, this stuff is amazing. I like to take a tablespoon of it and dump it on a sliced banana with a little bit of honey. Yummy! The whole deal is like 150 calories and … Continue reading My new treat

Pilaf.

My stepdad is grilling salmon today for Father's Day and he wanted rice pilaf to go with it. I decided to make some from a wild rice mix that we had. I probably used way too much butter and almost a whole bottle of wine, but it turned out pretty well! I'd share the recipe, … Continue reading Pilaf.

I have some chicken in the oven and it's a total experiment. My friend has a PET scan tomorrow and can't have any carbs so I had to get creative with spices. She wanted the super thin chicken breasts and I'm not sure how long they are going to take to cook, and I also … Continue reading Experiment.

Cooking.

God bless the person that invented the microwave. I remember learning that it was some kind of science accident. That somewhere a scientist was playing with radio waves or something and discovered that his chocolate bar melted in his pocket. I don't know if that's true or hooey, and I'm too lazy to look it … Continue reading Cooking.

Bread.

I didn't burn it!!!!! Yay! Baking is a fun distraction skill. It makes me feel better and makes me feel like I've accomplished something. It keeps me occupied and reduces my anxiety and depression so I'm a huge fan. I don't know why I don't do it more. Anyway, here's the recipe for the banana … Continue reading Bread.
