Sunday Night Barbecue

Well, I finally feel better! I’m not “ship-shape” by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve managed to keep soup, a baked potato, and noodles in my stomach with no ill effects… so I’m “better”! Thanks for all the healing thoughts, I really appreciate them!

Since Adam wasn’t sick at all, I decided to be a nice fiance and make him a decent dinner. We had some frozen chicken drumsticks and loads of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce, so I decided to make a taste of summer on this 16* day. Really no recipe here… I thawed the drumsticks in the microwave, put them in a glass baking dish, sprinkled with garlic powder, salt, and pepper, then covered them in about 1/2 c. barbecue sauce. I baked them at 400*, covered, for about 35-40 minutes (honestly cant remember!). Adam said it was good!

Not quite as good as on the grill...

While Adam munched on the chicken, I ate a bowl of my ultimate comfort food: parmesan buttered noodles! (Whole wheat of course, and low-fat “butter”) and thank goodness, I’m still feeling ok!

That’s all for now… hopefully the “feeling better” will continue, and I’ll have REAL dinner posts TOMORROW!!

Being sick STINKS!!!

Getting a stomach bug while being a food blogger really puts a damper on the hobby! I’m still not feeling great, but I thought I’d at least share my Thursday and Friday dinners.
Thursday, I made a simple dinner of sauteed fresh baby spinach and some TJ’s apple and maple chicken sausage. I should’ve known then that I was getting sick, because it’s a favorite of mine, and I could hardly eat it.

Then, last night, Adam and I babysat and the mom offered to buy us dinner. We got turkey burgers from Red Star Tavern across the street, along with ahi tuna bites since I’d been feeling better. BIG MISTAKE!! While both things were delicious, and totally something I’d eat another time, NOT the best idea last night.

Sorry for my lack of comments the last couple days, I’ve hardly been on the computer! I have been reading and commenting a bit…

Thanks for all the well-wishes! I needed them!!
