Hello there. It's time to get back on the wagon. I don't know how much you want to hear about. Do you want to see the jacked up hot dog I had at the airport on Tuesday? I'd like to forget it quite frankly but for the sake of the blog I'll post as many pics as I can to get all caught up.
Then it's bed for me. I'm going to Zumba tomorrow morning.
So here's Monday. It rained in Florida - and we ended up at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood. I started with the usual, had some onion rings and a chicken sandwich.
It seems we just missed Snooki's appearance.
You don't know how much that pains me. I should be ashamed - but am totally not - to admit how much I adore the Jersey Shore. As Kelly Ripa says "If loving the Jersey Shore is wrong. I don't want to be right."
Kelly and I go way back. I used to watch her on Dance Party USA.

I mean seriously 1986. What did you try and do to me?
Yes. I'm ancient. Deal with it.
Anyway....we had dinner at Mellow Mushroom.
Well. We had appetizers and a bottle of wine truthfully.
We had pita and hummus and garlic parmesan pretzels. Delish.
Tuesday. This petrified hot dog was pretty much all I ate all day.
Then I got home and made some pasta with meat sauce.
Wednesday. I stopped at TJ's after the doctors. I got some sweet chili sauce. I drizzled it with teriyaki on top of some chicken gyoza. Oh and broccoli.
Wednesday night I met my friend Steve for dinner. He was visiting from out of town. We started with quesadillas.
He had short ribs. I had crab cakes.
Ever notice how when I like something I order it ALL THE TIME???
Look. It's Thursday now. Time for...breakfast!!
Last night I cooked!! I made chicken using these two things.
With au gratin-y potatoes and a small salad on the side.
I think we're finally at Friday.
Lunch. Pretzel coated chicken (recipe soon!), spinach, sweet peppers, goat cheese, dijon balsamic.
Dinner w/mom and Jen at Dolcino.
I got the prix fix dinner that had an appetizer, entree and dessert.
Chicken Parm. I've got more than half leftover.
Dessert (w/peppermint tea).
Thanks for your patience with my blog slacking ways. I think I'm (finally!!) back in the swing now. Please send good thoughts that my dad will be out of the hospital and back to eating dinner with us soon. I miss him. :(
