I just got home from 8 days of eating a whole bunch of really nutritionally void things like Baskin Robbins ice cream cones and Coke by the gallon. Vacations should be like that and when I step on the scale to find I gained 3-4 lbs. I just shouldn’t be surprised at all. AT ALL! But I can be all, “This ends now!” and then spend the day on Pinterest pinning all kinds of healthy stuff.
Dinner tonight consisted of:
Bill had helped himself to a fancy dinner of toast prior to my cooking session because I had to run Crazy Man into town where he was joining his cousin and uncle in a walleye fishing tournament, so those two lost the chance to vote. Remaining family votes were “awesome chicken!!” from Princess. JP scored it a 6.5. Curly gave it a “blech!” I think it was pretty salty, but that mostly was because the rice wasn’t done and we just ate it alone. I would make it again, for sure. Nuts to the kids.
For a side, I served Tri Colored Pasta.
Of course, I didn’t add the olives because YUCK; but to impress, I made my own Creamy Caesar Dressing. I don’t think I blended it enough because it didn’t get all that creamy. My bad. It is full of flavor, and although I like it, I am not sure I LOVE it. Mostly because my favorite pasta salad involves pepperoni and my friend makes it, not me, and that makes everything better, right?
Meal-impressive-level of very high was given to this effort. It was pretty. And it wasn’t served in a waffle cone. Which both was good for me and very sad to me.
