Pleading guilty.


I have officially earned the worst blogger award.  I have to admit, the craziness of life has seriously caught up with me.  I'm hoping a few updates on life lately will be consolation!

This was a fun night of experimental cooking.  I made a citrus-maple glazed chicken breast, caramelized brussels sprouts, and herb infused parsnip puree.


In this house, we love Thai, Chinese, etc.  I'm always searching for ways to have all the flavor of my favorite dishes without all the calories.  This one (inspired by a Pinterest recipe, but spruced up so it's "my own") was a baked sweet and sour chicken dish with brown rice and asian vegetables.  So good!


And, in honor of Sunday-funday, I squeezed some fresh pomegranate and lemon juice and made myself a little vodka martini :)  Using fresh squeezed juice really makes a difference in the flavor!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  I'll be working a Chicago for a few days, so I will most certainly be dining out--expect some photos when I return!
