I had leftover chicken from the Creamed Chicken I made the other evening, and I wasn’t 100% sure what I was going to do with it. After picking up some sesame seed rolls at Buttercrust, I decided I’d just make chicken sandwiches. Jay hinted he’d like something with spice, so I tossed ours with buffalo sauce, topped with cheese and popped them under the broiler.
Of course, I left the bambino’s plain. I was shocked last week when he helped me make chicken enchiladas, tried the enchilada sauce, declared it good (and granted, I did only use mild sauce), and then proceeded to eat an entire enchilada without much prompting. I have a feeling it’ll be awhile before I can convince him to try buffalo sauce, though.
If you’re normal and not like me, you could easily add shredded carrots and/or diced celery to the chicken mixture. Or you could serve carrot and celery sticks on the side, rather than fries like I did!
This will be a bit of a long post, as I came across one of those “get to know you” memes on a blog called Pies and Plots. I’m pretty sure I did another version of this many moons ago, but I’m a dork and love filling these things out, so here we go!
A: Attached or Single?
B: Best Friend?
Political correctness would probably dictate I name Jay as my best friend since we’re married and all that…And I suppose for the most part, that’s true. If I had to pick someone besides Jay, I’d choose my sister Kendra.
C: Cake or Pie?
Cake. I can take or leave pie.
D: Day of Choice?
Saturday. It always means there’s still one more day to the weekend.
E: Essential Item?
Underpants? I don’t leave home without them.
F: Favorite Color?
G: Gummy Bears or Worms?
Neither–I’m not a big fan of anything gummy, unless it’s Sour Patch Kids.
I: Favorite Indulgence?
Oh, Baileys Irish Cream at the end of a crappy day.
J: January or July?
This is a tough one. The bambino’s birthday is in January, but I have issues with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I also hate extremes in temperature, so July’s not really my favorite either. Guess that means it’s a wash.
Just my bambino. The light and love of my life.
L: Life isn’t complete without?
M: Marriage date?
21 October. I wanted something closer to Halloween, but the hall where our wedding and reception was held was booked for that weekend.
N: Number of siblings?
Two sisters and two non-DNA-related brothers.
O: Oranges or Apples?
They-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named, claustrophobia, acrophobia, and whatever the fear of deep water is.
My favorite, from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”
R: Reasons to Smile?
Hugs from my bambino, sunshine, coffee, evenings with my family.
S: Season of Choice?
T: Tag Five People
Meh–If you have a blog and want to do this, feel free!
U: Unknown Fact about Me?
I absolutely despise cats, but I adore Hello Kitty. It’s one of the few “girly” things I allow myself.
Meh. Vegetables and I don’t really get along. If I had to pick something, I’d probably choose salad greens.
W: Worst Habit?
X: X-ray or Ultrasound?
X-Ray. Ultrasounds are slimy.
Y: Your Favorite Food?
Tiramisu. Or burgers.
Z: Zodiac Sign?
Scorpio. I fit the personality profile of a Scorpio to a T.
