Simple = Quick

When in doubt, post puppy photos.

I love her.

Thank you for the support on my afternoon’s post. I guess when you don’t know what to write, sometimes the answer is writing just that. :)

I do have a story to tell from this evening.

Derek and I were watching a cheesy Lifetime movie on the couch when dinner time started creeping up on us. We were both getting hungry, but neither of us wanted to get up and cook (Derek even took it as far as asking Siri where to find good Chines takeout nearby). I decided to make a deal with him – we pause the cheesy movie and work as a team in the kitchen, and I could guarantee dinner in 30 minutes or less. Deal.

Simple dinner = quick dinner

Derek sliced the potatoes before they went in the oven for roasting.

I cut the chicken breasts into strips and dunked them in an egg bath before rolling the strips in a cornmeal/whole wheat flour coating. Those baked for 20 minutes at 375.

The microwave took care of the steam-in-a-bag cauliflower.

Thanks to the team effort, dinner was ready in less than 30 minutes. I should pull him off the couch more often. ;)

I had the last chocolate chips cookies from Saturday night for dessert.

My afternoon snack makes me giggle.

I worked from Starbucks this afternoon and was looking for a quick snack to throw in my bag on the way out the door. I grabbed the almost empty hummus container and a bag of carrot sticks from the fridge. I was going to put them in tupperware, but when I realized the carrot sticks fit in the hummus container, I thought – why not? Perfect transportable snack that I could toss out when I was done. Easy Peasy.

Guess what’s on Netflix?! Season 7 of Weeds!

Now if they’d just release season 7 of How I Met Your Mother of Instant Play we’d be all good. ;)

Good Night!
