Meal Plan Monday:

Chris and I went to CS on Saturday to get the rest of my 'uff from Kate's house. Bus since I forgot the key, we went to the grocery store instead. Yep. Uh huh.

Here's what we're having for dinner/lunch this week:

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers

Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta

3 Mini Meatball Sandwiches

Grilled Chicken Pineapple Quesadillas

Caramelized Onion Chicken Pizza

Pepper Jack, Chicken and Peach Quesadillas

Yum, right?

I made dinner rolls yesterday, but omitted the egg yolk asked for in the recipe because we were out of eggs. Time machine needed-- I had thrown away three yolks that morning. CC ran to the corner store when he found out, and I added the yolk in halfway through the bread machine's cycle. They're pretty dense, but "have good flavor," to quote a kind soul.


I also made black beans yesterday in the crock pot for this week's use, and chopped/ground some venison in the food processor for the meatballs! I really really really like venison. I also made the pizza dough in the food processor. Second coolest kitchen tool... still number one, my friend, the mixer.

And I read half of a book.

I love Sundays. Good times. Good times. Oh, and I love food. Good meals. Good meals.

Uh, hopefully, anyway!

There was a skunk on the track tonight.

There was a SKUNK on the track tonight.

On the first lap.
It was dark.
And CC and I are trotting along.

When we see what looks like a cat.
With a white stripe on its tail.......


There's a skunk on the track.

Every time we came to the end zone, we would slow to a trot and look.

Do you see it?
There it is, RUN!

Or, there it is, CUT THROUGH THE GRASS!

In two miles, we did that eight times.


This is a funny town.
