We haven't really been up to too much this week. We went to my mom's house, took Lila to get professional photos, and just been hanging around. I did a big clean today (swept, vacuumed, and mopped). It takes a while since almost the whole downstairs is hardwood. About an hour later, Lila is throwing puffs everywhere.. I give up.
Last night I made a Chinese type of dish. Sweet and sour chicken drumsticks, fried rice, and green beans. Turned out really good. I then made mocha chocolate brownies for dessert (out of a box..shame on me.) They kinda gave me a headache. Too rich.
For tonight's dinner I made the pork chops again. I love them. However, in this weeks produce box we were given brussel sprouts. Now all I ever hear is that they are terrible...NO! I really liked them. However, I eat just about anything. My mom fed me shrimp scampi at 6 months, and ever since I have had a love for food. David, on the other hand was not too keen on my sprouts :( I think they taste like kale/cabbage. All I did was drizzle enough olive oil for salt and pepper to stick. Added the salt, pepper, and paprika. Baked them at 400 degrees for 25-50 min. Whenever they look cooked through. I think mine could have taken a bit longer. Oh and I added some bacon..everything tastes better with bacon.
I made some truffles for tomorrow's dessert..I will share if they turn out! Off I go! I have been trying to read a book for the past two weeks, and I have not even finished the first chapter. #notimemommy
