Stressful week, good resolution. As a Side note, there is a clear need for an upgrade to the underlaying monetary system. It shouldn't a. cost $40 ($20 to initiate and $20 to receive) to do a same day transfer and b. take so damn long. that being said, Thanks to my current banking institution for not-recharging me for the cashiers check re-addressing.
After not feeling the desire to do this last week, it was really easy. And pretty good.
With guests, had to buy more ham steaks, ended up being pretty good with the rhubarb, sugar and pan drippings.
Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs with Parmesan & Red Pepper flakes
Oh oven...it's hard to know how much you miss something until it's easy to use ones again. I used olive oil, some parmigiano reggiano, and a few red pepper flakes and salt and pepper and tossed, and baked in the oven. Not bad for the ease of work.
With guests, these became taco salad, and because I didn't plan enough for guests, I added rice to expand the amount to make good sized salads. Good stuffs.
On Friday night, after Shannon and I got back from Who's Live is it Anyway?, My brothers, father and I shared most of a bag of Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips, it left more then one of us with upset stomachs, though, they were quite good.
Saturday, my brothers made dinner for my father's birthday. Quite the meal.
