I have been going over to my sisters' house a lot to watch the Olympics. BIL went to CO to ski so it will be her and me eating leftovers from last night's potluck; chicken, salad, potatoes and peanut butter cookies. And I don't think I can head over there without the obligatory popcorn with butter and brewer's yeast.

Change of plans; I had chicken for lunch so decided to make chimichitos for dinner with the leftovers.
Change of plans; The tortillas were all stuck together and tearing so I made hard tacos instead. No lettuce, but shredded cabbage worked great.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

We had beef strips teriyaki over rice, green beans on the side, iced tea, then cherry cake for dessert.

I went shopping at Costco, so I picked up a rotisserie chicken. I knew I would be too tired to cook a proper meal. Stirling was sounding quite reluctant about plain rotisserie chicken, so I posted a question: Jazzing up rotisserie chicken. Well, I followed Dawg's suggestion of teriyaki. I stir fried some broccoli and some frozen, julienned bell peppers, added some teriyaki sauce (Restaurant Teriyaki Sauce Recipe - Food.com - 133751, but I used 3 tblsps of honey and no sugar), and then threw in chunks of chicken breast. I served it with brown basmati rice. That was quite tasty, but I will tweak that recipe some more next time.

Hubby cooked tonight. We had BLATs (bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato sandwiches). Hubby got the bacon to that perfect crisp but still chewy point. I wish he would give himself more credit for his cooking. He doesn't cook often, but what he does cook is always really good.

Decided to do a Lenten "spring training" meal - it's less than two weeks away from Ash Wednesday. I needed bread, and the grocery that fries your purchased fish is in the same parking lot. We had cod and swai, along with coleslaw and tater tots (Himself was thrilled - I rarely have them). It's late, but my taste buds are asking if I'd please make up that mix of Trader Joe's gingerbread. Somehow I think my laziness will win that one.

We had spaghetti with meat sauce and a nice green salad.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

I bought a rotisserie chicken and made baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli with melted Velveeta cheese over it.

I'm still sore and tired...I'll do better later! I had butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon on the sweet potatoes.

With love,
