|trying a few polka dots for a change|
One very nice thing that I did to help cheer me up a little was to make a hair appointment for Friday after work. I just have to be sure to leave here by 5:15 so I make the appointment on time. A cut and highlights is overdue again.
Oh my, that chicken breast that I cooked last night has an overpowering garlic smell. It's good but wow, no vampires will be after me today. I sauteed them with minced garlic that Cro had brought home in a big spice jar from Sam's Club (the place that sells everything in bulk sizes). I guess it was supposed to be rehydrated prior to sprinkling over the chicken. Maybe I should use recipes more often but I was going for simple with a sprinkle of spice. Dehydrated minced garlic is a bit stronger than a sprinkle of garlic salt. lol
One other thing that would cheer me up bigtime would be a little woosh from the scale. Maybe tomorrow ... hopefully by Saturday morning. At least I'm still below where I started but like my little hamster, I'm hopping up and down in anticipation. (And in my head I hear that word Rocky Horror Picture Show style. Antici ... ... ... pation.)
7:30am. Half of this:

oops, I ate before I remembered the photo!
