Sounds good, doesn’t it? And it was!
But first, when I was at Whole Foods, they had the most beautiful orchids. When Hannah was little her baby-sitter used to grown them, and I had no idea how difficult it was to keep them alive – they are very high maintenance! If I bought this one I wouldn’t give it a week in my house!
And then I got the gift cards for Mel and Meghann – the gift cards come in really tiny paper bags – too cute!
I brought to work a baked potato and leftover chili, but with my cough, I didn’t really feel like it. I ended up getting a cup of broccoli cheddar soup and garlic pita chips and garlic hummus. Good thing I am not kissing Tony because of my cold because all he would smell was garlic!
So I made a 7 ounce burger for Tony with American cheese, and mine was 3 ounces with .75 ounce of herbed goat cheese. I just grilled some jarred roasted red peppers on my pan along with the burgers. You can’t see Hannah’s burger because it is so tiny. Literally, if it is more than 1/8 of an inch thick and ANY sign of pink, she won’t eat it. Where did I go wrong with this child not loving meat?
Although she has a theory. I shunned meat the whole time I was pregnant with her, and had stirfry about 3 times a week. Now she doesn’t like meat and loves stirfry!
Then I sliced up some potatoes, sprinkled them with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and salt and pepper. I baked them at 450 for like 30 minutes, and while they were cooked, they weren’t crispy. I even tried to finish them off under the broiler, but that didn’t work either. If anyone has any suggestions on a crispy oven fry, I am all ears!
Sinec my burger was smaller, I used my biscuit cutter to cut my bun. So the bun was 1.5 ounces, I had three ounces of potatoes, probably about 1/2 ounce of American cheese on the fries and .75 ounce of goat cheese. The combo of the goat cheese and red pepper was delish!
It was kind of tall, so I smushed it at the table – it was a gooey delicious mess!
So Tuesday night is BizTV night. Biggest Loser is on, American Idol is on and Chopped on FoodTV is on at 9:00. Although we do DVR Biggest Loser – a lot of that show can be fast forwarded:
Contestant: “Bob, what do I do when someone brings donuts to the office and I am craving them?”
Bob: “Easy, just carry around gum with you and you’ll never be tempted again!”
Uugghh. Off to relax, see you tomorrow!
