A fun day was had. Matt and I made a few videos (for upcoming project TBA in September) and then Karen and I went to see Hope Springs!! I loved the movie and found it hilarious – I had a smile on my face the whole first half!! The acting was brilliant and the writers so clever. I’d definitely recommend seeing it!
Munched on this AnneP bar during the show:
I walked home after the movie and Matt and I headed over to Pumpkin’s house!!! Pumpkin’s human sister, Sarah, had a baby girl 2 weeks ago and her parents (our neighbors) invited us over for cocktail hour to meet the little baby. She was so tiny and cute and definitely gave me a boost of oxytocin!! While we were there we enjoyed a few finger foods to tide us to dinner. We were also told that Pumpkin caught (and ate!) a lizard this week!! Crazy kitty : )
Back on our side of the fence, Matt put the finishing touches on a dinner he worked on while Karen and I were at the movies (he was thrilled to skip the movie and cook : ) )
Delicious Organic Butcher herb chicken breasts, pan fried and oven finished. They had the perfect crispy crust!
Matt also made what he called an “okra + tomato salsa” that he served atop fresh zucchini.
He simmered together of medium heat until thick and reduced: 2 cups chopped okra, 1 cup mixed small tomatoes, 4 large tomatoes, 1 small poblano pepper, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp sugar, 1 clove of garlic and salt to taste – maybe 1/2 a tsp. [Thanks for taking notes Kanz!]
I was in charge of heating up and buttering potato rolls to go with the meal : ) The best part!
Despite my early rise this AM, I had great energy today. But as bedtime approaches, I can’t wait to go to sleep!
