Clam Chowder with Bacon I got a ton done this afternoon: thank you notes, dietetics assignment, folded laundry, emptied trash cans, sorted mail, cooked dinner, ate dinner, cleaned up kitchen, swept AND swiffered the kitchen floors, caught up on blog questions and managed to watch an episode of Barefoot Contessa Dinner was simple and therapeutic […]

Packed up and ate in my nook before class – kept things simpler today to avoid drawing too much attention to myself Salmon Salad with carrots, celery, pickle, jarred jalapeño, jalapeño mustard, zesty mustard, S + P and hot sauce.

Chicken Cacciatore with Balsamic-Mustard Green Beans (My chicken is hiding under the peppers!)  Another Cooking Light inspiration! This recipe was very simple and delicious. I would have wanted to use boneless, skinless chicken for this, but we bought those drumsticks and thighs a few weeks ago SUPER cheap and froze them, so following our goal […]
