Not that that has anything to do with anything...

I'm having creamy cajun chicken tonight. Just hoping the half and half works almost as well as heavy cream.
Thanks Pac! I enjoyed it - but not as much as I would have enjoyed the real trips!

Cajun chicken sounds delightful! And I am sure half and half (is that half cream/half milk? Probably what we call "single" cream if it is.) will work very well.

Yep, your single cream sounds just like half and half. I imagine I might need to simmer it a bit more to thicken is all. Come to think of it, I think I'll add some cream cheese in with things. That will richen it up.

I would like to know what anything he posts means. It makes for hard reading with no space between sentences or capitals. I never know if it is just one long sentence or what.

I'm making chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. Time to start slicing the veg. I think I'll make some quickie Mexican rice, too, and mix leftover rice with leftover fajita fixings for lunch tomorrow.

We're having sunny Italy! Got a Teacher Appreciation coupon for a free large 1 topping pizza and a 16 piece order of parm bites. Since we wanted mushrooms on the pizza along with pepperoni, our grand total will be $1.34.

Going with the globe trotting theme, I had knockwurst(hot dog), crisps (potato chips) with French onion dip and Boston baked beans.
