Well, I made it through my workday and got home pretty early to Tampa, around 5:30. Ryan is with his sister at a baseball game and that gave me time to come home and catch up with my mom. We made dinner tonight tonight and observed Dexter and Mikan (my parent’s dog) playing together because she is cat-sitting for the week. So far, so good. Dexter just likes to sit and look outside the window and the biggest struggle is keeping Mikan out of his food!
The soup was a GREAT snack today! I’m going to stock up next time I go to the store. It filled me up and warmed me up as well since I sit under the cold ac all day. When I got into Tampa, however, I did snack on a couple almonds and about three or four kashi crackers while I was helping my mom cook.
We made a recipe from one of our favorite cookbooks—Blanchard’s Table. It was spaghetti with mushrooms, chicken and lemon. Very good! We used whole wheat angel hair pasta (my fav!) and the sauce was simple with organic rotisserie chicken breast, lemon juice and zest, organic mushrooms, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and red pepper flakes. Simple ingredients that made up an elegant meal. We also had this amazing olive bread from The Fresh Market and red wine (I had one glass).
But….at my house there is always dessert and tonight my mom made me a coconut sorbet parfait with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream on top. Divine!
