Blast from the past

My friend Jenny got here about 3ish and after a couple hours of catching up and running around with the kids we started to cook some dinner. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take her around sight seeing or out for dinner but the kids had entirely too much energy to sit at a restaurant. I had taken out chicken early this afternoon and had it marinating all day. Once we decided to stay in I heated up the oven and got prepped. Grilled chicken, sweet potato fries and roasted vegetables. The sweet potatoes and veggies were tossed in EVOO and I used a little Mrs Dash garlic and herb on the veggies. Everything turned out delicious. Jenny said it was the perfect dinner. =) That’s always nice to hear. The chicken came out juicy and tender.

This was after we were done eating. The kids didn’t think my dinner was too stellar. Ryan had a big salad. He didn’t want any chicken or veggies. (weird I know) Chase wasn’t going to eat dinner until Ryan got his snack (ice cream sandwich) and then he changed his mind. He didn’t want what I cooked and I know its bad to cook 2 meals. So, I made him a turkey sandwich. That kid could live off of sandwich’s and I’ve learned to pick my battles.

I had a glass of wine while I was cooking and I’m sipping on a glass now.

Cori should be home in about a hour and I so ready. Jenny and I are going to hang out for a while more before bed. She has an appointment at a Culinary School in the morning. Cross your fingers for her. Go Jenny!

See you for breakfast,
