I made pizza dough for the first time and it didn’t kill us. Woo hoo!
Yesterday I marinated chicken breasts in garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, ground coriander and apple cider vinegar. They actually marinated overnight since they were frozen but around 3pm yesterday I dried them off and popped them in the oven to bake. They turned out heavenly and I had two breasts left over.
Tonight I was stuck with the chicken breasts and a hankering for pizza. So, instead of ordering out like we normally would have done, I made pizza dough and used some left over Newman’s Own Marinara Sauce for the base [LOVE Newman’s Own]. The only cheese I had was cheddar but cheese is cheese. Right? At least I didn’t use the plastic wrapped stuff.
Our pizza consisted of the sauce, the cubed chicken breast and cheddar cheese on half and then I added some frozen three colored bell peppers and onions to the other half. Really yummy. Trust me on this.
Today has been a pretty decent day.
For some reason, Cara has started sleeping until around 7:30am. Since that’s about two hours later than she had been sleeping, I find myself waking in about 15 minute intervals and wondering if I should go in and check for breathing. Maybe she’s finally realized that sleep is good? I know that since I’ve written this that tomorrow she will be up at the ass crack of dawn. Guess the run was good while it lasted.
Tucker took a “sample” in to the Urologist today and he called later in the day to find out that he’s “all clear” but he still has to take another sample in to them in a few months.
Also, the Dean of Business apparently has granted Tucker a grade waiver so that Tucker can graduate. Let me explain.
When Tucker was a young pup, he didn’t want to be at college. He did a lot of partying w/the fraternity and got a semester of F’s because he missed the withdrawal date by a day. SO, Tucker had that semester of F’s hanging out on his transcript and that has been completely fucking him even though he transferred back in a really high GPA. At the end of last semester – what was supposed to be his LAST EVER semester – Tucker was within 2 HUNDRETHS of his department’s requirement to graduate. Hallelujah for an educator who can appreciate someone who was young and stupid but has learned his lesson.
