How about a cooking post today? Quite frankly, I kept my happy ass home today. It was cold and, as I said yesterday, nothing I have to do was so damn important after all. I wrote a little, I watched a monster movie (which I may also write about), I took a nap. Judge me if you like (some of you will anyways) (you know who you are). As Popeye said, I yam what I yam (although I am not cooking yams).
Steven was due home in, I hoped, less than a half hour, so I went out to the kitchen to see what I could do. I like to cook with wine so poured myself a glass of Chardonnay. I had taken boneless, skinless chicken thighs out of the freezer this morning. I had also mentioned the possibility of baked macaroni and cheese to Steven. I had a tentative plan.
I put on water to boil for mini shells and pre-heated the oven to 350 degrees. I put some spices on the chicken: garlic powder, onion powder, and Salt-Free All Purpose from the So Sweet Candy Cafe (just to give them another shout-out). Judge me if you like for not using fresh garlic and onions, but only if you are quite finished judging me for the nap (I would not want anyone to pull a muscle on my account). I have some mozzarella I grated yesterday but did not use all of for flat-break pizzas (which would have made a dandy post, I suppose). I also grated some extra sharp cheddar and Monterrey Jack. Then I came back into the living room to write my blog post.
When the chicken is cooked, I will chop it up to put in the macaroni and cheese. I have some leftover garlic dip and a can of mushrooms I will add to the mix. I shall throw in a little milk and/or butter if it seems like a good idea at the time.
I believe it will be a delightful dinner. I make bold to hit Publish without assuring that it is. That is the kind of cooking post I make. Happy Saturday, everybody, and if you live in Central New York or someplace equally cold: try to keep warm!
P.S. Steven is due home in another five or so minutes. Yay!
