October 19th, 2008: Dinner

Hi guys! After posting the last entry, I closed up the laptop and we were out the door. We only made one stop and that was to Sam’s to get the bigger bulk items like water, toilet paper, and all kinds of home stuff. There were some things I found that really surprised me. Like a huge container of organic baby spinach for something crazy like $4. And I don’t normally look at their seafood but I did yesterday and all of their stuff was wild caught in the US. I can’t even find that at WF, all of their stuff is farm raised. I would rather have wild caught seafood than farm raised. I also scored a couple bottles of wine that I’m saving for Thanksgiving.

The store was jam packed, so by the time we got home it was 4:30. So much for trying to get a lot of stuff done, the day was pretty much toast. After putting away the purchases and taking care of Rocky, I made us some quick salads. It was the Tastes of Fall salad with a few alterations. I added in some spinach and also used a new dressing I bought on Saturday when we were out, Maple Balsamic. Oooooo It was so yummy! Just a hint of maple but very tangy and it went with the apples and cranberries really well.

We ate the salads as dinner cooked because it was going to take a while and we were both hungry. Well I was hungry, I didn’t bother to ask if Scott was, I just fed him anyway. :p For Sunday Dinner I roasted some chicken legs that I had spiced up with a rub earlier that morning. They were sitting in it getting yummy all day. I also made some “baked beans”, in quotes because they aren’t official baked beans. I made a thick bbq type sauce and added in some pinto beans. It was okay but I could do better. Scott loved them so he can have the leftovers. We also had some zucchini fries that were baked in the oven. I’m still tweaking those but should be close to getting it perfected.

My plate was two wee legs, some fries, and a small spoonful of the beans. I ate everything, the chicken turned out awesome! We watched some TV while eating trying to make a dent in our recorded shows. I think we made it through two shows before I called uncle and said I needed to get to bed. I was in bed before 10:30, woo!
