My meals when Wally is gone are never as good as when I am cooking for 2. We had a few chicken sausages sitting the the fridge needing to be cooked, so I decided to throw something together.
I used rice-a- roni - chicken flavor, a red pepper chopped up, and sliced 2 pieces of sausage. I prepared the rice as the box recommends and added the red pepper and sausage when the rice was simmering covered.
I added some Franks Hot Sauce and Lizano sauce that we brought back from Costa Rica with us. The sauces gave it that added touch to not taste like a boxed dinner.
For dessert, Mint Oreo ice cream and 2 oreos. I was craving more chocolate!!
More unpacking to do; while I was waiting for the rice to simmer I had 15 minutes to clean/unpack. I was able to get 3 more boxes unpacked/put away. I know that this may not seem like a lot. But little by little it is getting all into place. I have found that since I started working it is hard to find time to clean, unpack, make dinner, workout, feed and walk the dogs,... (life)
Wally had left for Texas for flight training on a Bell 206. Wally being going means a few things;
- I get to have ALL of the covers in bed
- I get to watch girly movies and as much grey's anatomy as I want
- more unpacking without distraction
- get some cleaning down without feeling like I am not spending time with him
