Woahhhh, baby. Was there lots of good food in my house last night!
Jay and I had our buds Joe & Kate over last night for dinner and when it came time to decide what was going to be on the menu, chicken parm just called to me. So I took out a container of homemade sauce from the freezer, cooked up a batch of my healthy baked chicken parm, and added in some whole wheat spaghetti.
(this tends to be a favorite meal of ours when Joe and Kate come over, obviously)
To make sure we had a little veggie action, Kate took care of roasting up some delicious green beans with parmesan cheese.
Yes, it was a feast, indeed!
I enjoyed a little bit of everything and had no problem-o clearing my plate.
Put Italian food in front of me and I. am. done.
Shortly after dinner, there was dessert to be had…
I’ve been dying to make a batch of my favorite apple crisp for the past couple of weeks; I bought a bag of apples at the store on Monday, but didn’t want to make it just for Jay and I (because I know we’d have no problem demolishing the whole thing ourselves in a matter of days). When I found out J&K were coming, I had no more excuses.
Topped with a little French Vanilla ice cream + caramel? Ohh, it was heavenly.
The four of us spent the whole evening eating, catching up, laughing (as always), and watching the season premieres of The Middle and Modern Family. But MOST importantly…
Do you guys remember over the summer when we were trying to convince Jay to join the land of Twitter? Well last night, he finally caved!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t convince him to go with @MrSweetTooth (he’s lucky I’m such an understanding wife) but he is now a member of the Twitter-verse (<—is that a word people use? Am I totally making that up?) so feel free to say hi to @TheRealEffenJay…or just bug him a whole lot.
Breakfast this morning is the same exact thing as yesterday.
And I still have four waffles left, so don’t be surprised if you see the same thing for two more days.
Sorry…they’re just that good.
Oh yeah, and as a side note? That whole humbling experience thing yesterday? Holy cow…talk about sooooore muscles this morning. Yikes.
Question for the Morning:
