Fried Chicken

Hello everyone! Tonight I made a delicious meal. It has been a while since I’ve made a home cooked meal. I have been quite busy. Tonight I had time to make a scrumptious dinner.

I pulled this recipe from Pinterest. Here is the link in case you want to check it out!

Birthday Weekend

Last weekend was my birthday! (Rejoice, Libra’s) Although I was fighting a sinus cold, I managed to be able to celebrate my day of birth with the people I love most. As we all know, gifts are not the most important part of your special day. However, I also managed to score some great gifts as well. 🙂

My day was spent with relaxation and my best (fur) friends, Tyson and Chuck. ❤

Once the love of my life got home from class, he took me to get my favorite beverage at Starbucks and we went for a lovely drive. We ended our drive at an awesome restaurant where my fantastic Brother and my sister-in-law met us for dinner.

We shared great conversation and a pricey bottle of Rose. As we were finishing up, we look over and see Bernard Pollard of the Tennessee Titans eating dessert with his lady.

We then went home and had delicious cake! The next day I hung my fantastic gifts from my brother and sister-in-law!

 

Thank you to all who wished me a happy birthday! I had a fabulous day!

Sometimes I Like To Cook

 Growing up my Mom didn’t teach me a lot about cooking. It’s not because she didn’t want to. Her nurturing soul preferred preparing everything for her family. That’s fine. Unfortunately, it has left me with no cooking skills. Being a college student and living on taco bell has served me well. But, bean and cheese burritos only add on the pounds and lack proper nutrition.

When I moved in with my lovely boyfriend nearly two years ago, I realized I needed to start learning how to cook. I’ve taken it upon myself to become the next Suzy homemaker. So far, I’ve master grilling, frying, and baking chicken; chopping, dicing, mincing veggies; and no one makes pasta like I do. (Well, I guess I’m being a little cocky there.) 😉

Anyway, tonight I made Broccoli Chicken Alfredo and mastered the impossible task of popping Texas Toast in the oven for seven minutes. 😉 Here’s how it turned out.1526981_10152253741297190_357834387441635784_n10620702_10152253741912190_3582829639318068873_n
