Oh mah goodness, that soup was fantastic! The perfect thing for a cold night and I can't wait for leftovers. Such a relief after many lackluster meals lately.

Changes I made if anyone is interested:
-Trader Joe's chicken breakfast sausage
-Added celery and carrots
-Herbs: dried sage, basil and oregano (skipped the rosemary, not my favorite)
-Low sodium V8 instead of tomato sauce
-Half chicken stock, half vegetable broth

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I had to figure out something to do with chicken cutlets tonight to make it new and exciting. And I also wanted to use up a large batch of mashed potatoes.

So, I added a good amount of crushed rosemary and parsley to the mashies, then I cut the chicken into large bite-size chunks and dipped them in lemon juice and encased each chunk with the mashies and formed into balls, and baked at 400 on my baking stone for a half hour til they were brown all over. OMFG...It was delicious. I named the recipe: Rooster Balls.

Served with a spinach, olive, and pickled cabbage salad.

Big hit with the kids and husband alike.

Well, it's Sunday, so hopefully Messacan!

Nice. Changing the spelling makes all the difference in the world. So much less offensive that way...

Pizza and a salad. Not too bad for a frozen pizza.

oven baked wings with some sort of marinade I found in the fridge and I dumped some other spices in there. I'll probably finish it off with a sweet glaze of preserves or honey. Gotta figure out what I have in the pantry

Serving with asian mix veggies from costco and peanut noodles which tastes kinda plain since I don't have any lime.
hello.world.
I attempted to make fajitas and Mexican rice from America's Test Kitchen. Hubby brought home some mystery meat already sliced, which was not what I wanted. It was yuck. The rice was meh.

Store bought quiche lorraine.

Maybe coco pops before bed
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I'm thinking leftover kale sausage soup because I've been craving it and probably a crusty roll on the side.

I was all set to make ras el hanout-spiced kofta (with very inauthentic/blasphemous pork), garlic yogurt sauce, sumac fried onions, caramelized cauliflower, and braised carrot coins. All to go inside homemade semolina buns. But my brother needs me to watch my nephew for a few hours this evening, and since I won't be able to cook anyway, I might as well walk the 6.5 miles over there. Ah well, tomorrow. Maybe I'll go with some sheet trays, ingredients, and an oven thermometer (they just moved, I don't know how their oven heats) and bake some cookies. What's better in a new apartment than the scent of freshly baked cookies?

But of course!

I'm thinking maybe I'll make a batch of dough for some morning buns (haven't settled on brown sugar coils, chocolate hazelnut rolls, or something else) and leave them shaped so they just take them out the next morning and bake them. Or maybe scones are a better idea since they can be baked from frozen.
Heh, my brother's shameless. After he had finished talking to my mom the other day, she put me on the phone and he said to me:
"Hey, you wanna come over and bake stuff here?"

Tilapia or crab.....
Fish and chips. I had a dinner FAIL. Why was my fish soggy? Came out crispy and then soaked right through the batter and peeled away from the fish. Ughhhhhhh!
