Ugh this week needs to be over! This weekend my friends and I are heading to the Cape for my bachelorette party and I cannot wait!
This week I have been stressed and very overly emotional. Unfortunately, Nolan has received the brunt of my spasticness -yes I’m also making up words now- and as always has handled it with grace. I just love him. For some reason I just woke up in a terrible mood yesterday and simply could not shake it until about 6:00pm.
So imagine my excitement when I came home after job #3 to the sounds and smells of a busy kitchen.
In my honest opinion, there is nothing sexier than a man slaving over a hot stove. 😉
He knew I had been a little blah all day so he decided to whip me up some comfort food.
“Fried” chicken strips (which he baked for me )
mixed veggies and mashed potatoes
Ugh sooooooo good! I took a recipe out of KFC‘S playbook and assembled myself a famous bowl! For those of you who have never had one, they are incredible and very addictive. I lived on them in grad school! (Hence the 20 pound weight gain I encountered.)
(From the bottom up): A biscuit, a layer of mashed potatoes, a layer of vegetables, chicken strips topped with a bit of gravy.
It was heavenly. Absolutely heavenly. The biscuit soaks up all the gravy and delicious chicken juices and everything blends together in a bowl of heaven. I could feel my stress and blahness -yes still making up words- drifting away with every bite. There is certainly something to be said about food that sticks to your ribs and hugs you from the inside out!
Nolan went traditional with his plate.
Ok so here is the amazing stuffed haddock recipe I made earlier this week. I’m telling you, its super simple to make and most of you probably already have the ingredients in the back of your pantry. Served with a glass of white wine, this could be a very fancy meal to serve to someone special.
I used Trader Joe’s fried onion pieces.
Everything sauteed and mixed together
Stuffed into fish
Dinner is served!
I just love a successful new recipe!
