Bright and early this morning, I had to go recruit a patient at the hospital, but after that I decided it was a good day to
work from home take a nap and be lazy. Since I "worked from home" I had plenty of time to cook, though! For lunch, I made Spinach and Chicken Skillet. I have to say... it was nothing special. It wasn't bad, but I just wasn't super impressed. It was a pretty basic and easy recipe, and I think it needed extra spices or herbs or SOMETHING to make it interesting.
Then, I decided to cook up what I'll be having for lunch for the next 2-ish day: Tuna Twist Casserole. TBD how delicious it is. But, it was pretty simple - and was definitely the type of thing I used to throw together for myself (although my version was egg noodles, pasta, cream of mushroom soup, and peas). It said to top it with croutons, which was a little strange, but whatever. I bought these Italian-style croutons and Kroeger and tried a few as I placed them on the casserole... DELICIOUS!
After watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I have decided that I really want to purchase Skinny Italian, Teresa Giudice's book. I am pretty in love with Italian food, and the book sounds fabulous. Alas, I have 279 recipes left to make in the next 325 days, so I will probably hold off on that purchase.
Finally, I want to tell you all (all = about 1 person I think, but that's ok) that I think I have discovered that I like onions. Not raw onions, which I kind of hate... but a few recent recipes have called for white or red onions chopped up and cooked on a skillet. I used to detest onions in every form, other than onion rings which are the JAM. But now I'm learning that so long as the onion is cooked, it's pretty tasty. This is hilarious to my parents, because as a young child (circa age 3) I apparently enjoyed eating raw onions the way most people eat apples. Then, by the time I was 8 or so, I refused to eat anything with even a hint of onion. So anyway - cheers to finding new foods that I enjoy as part of this process!
