I accomplished everything I set out to do today, and am rewarding myself with some treats and something good for dinner.
The trick to accomplishing my daily goals, I’ve found, is to not have many.
So this afternoon, I’m having table water crackers smeared with strawberry cream cheese and topped with blueberries. This is just a slight variation from last week’s cracker ensemble.
I think it looks very healthy, don’t you?
And because my favorite bottle stopper is now broken, I’m switching to this one. I’ve had it for years, having purchased it in an eclectic gift shop on Ocracoke Island in North Carolina. And since the Belmont horse race was on today, and it’s a Saturday, I’m taking the helm at dinner tonight.
Tonight I’m serving a recipe I found on Pioneer Woman’s site. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the only blog I read in the blogosphere. But she does have some pretty tasty recipes and this one is her Chicken Scallopine.
My husband pronounced it ‘tasty’ which rates fairly high on the taste meter I’ve come to know for the past 50 years. Well not really 50 years, although it does seem like it sometimes.
I don’t post many recipes, but the ones I do are both delicious and are easy to make. This one took a half hour from start to finish.
I cut the recipe into thirds because it’s just the two of us. And still, I could have had just a bit more mushroom sauce. But it was quite nice paired with a chardonnay from Rodney Strong vineyards.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
