Two words: Where’s Dessert?
I come home from work ravenous. No matter what I eat during the day, once 5 o’clock rolls around, I need food. Tonight, we didn’t have anything on the menu, and my hunger didn’t allow me enough time to create a meal from scratch. So we hopped into the car and headed to one of our favorite Burbank Restaurants.
It’s this little hole in the wall place that just always has good food. Irving and I joke that when we go in there, we drop the age demographic down to 75 (instead of it’s typical 85). lol We’re always the youngest ones in there, it’s a total senior citizen discount joint, but we love it.
I ordered the chicken tenders dinner… really, I wanted the salad, cornbread, veggies and sweet potatoes (and it just happen to come with a side of chicken).
Served with some honey and ketchup! I just love meals with multiple components. It’s a total mind thing.
It is now 7:45p and we are definitely in our PJs headed to bed. See, we are TOTALLY senior citizens! We fit in just fine!
Bring on the weekend!!
I made the best little concoction tonight for dinner tonight. I took little potatoes and baby carrots and roasted them in the oven with some Olive Oil and Oregano and they came out fabulous!
Then I grilled up some chicken in the grill pan, using a little salad dressing as a marinade. I like to squash them and make them really thin!
Served over a bed of spinach! Delightful!
Even Irving was impressed!
Irving tried to get me to watch Slumdog Millionaire with him, but I just couldn’t do it. I watched maybe 20 minutes or so and I had to leave the room. Movies like Hotel Rwanda and Blood Diamond also make me sick to my stomache. I just always feel so bad and helpless and they give me bad nightmares. 😦 It’s too bad because it is a beautifully shot film, but a little too scary for me.
Irving was starving after work on Sunday, and we didn’t have time to go to the grocery store, so I raided the freezer and pantry and came up with an impromtu dinner! Super simple and ready in 20 minutes!
Eggplant Parmesan for her, and for Veal Parmesan for him! Each in it’s own little dish.
The cheese was the best part. I love when it’s all broiled and crispy on top. Yum!
