It’s probably quite apparent that I love food. I find great enjoyment out of trying new things, creating new things. I especially enjoy the process of creating dishes. There’s something equally calming and exciting about taking a whole bunch of ingredients and blending them into something delicious.
Yesterday’s supper was one of those moments. While boiling spaghetti & steaming broccoli, I chopped some boneless, skinless chicken breast into little slices, and fried them in a pan with butter, garlic, parmesan, mushrooms, onion, a bit of seasoning and worcestershire. This combination was tossed in a giant pot and mixed with the broccoli and spaghetti noodles, and then smothered with a garlic alfredo, cream of mushroom, herb & garlic mozzarella cheese sauce with just the right amount of milk.
It was delicious.
This week seems to have a mushroom & mozzarella theme to it, and you’ll hear no complaints from me. Though it may be good to change it up for today’s lunch. We’ll see.
The animals of the household are driving me a little nutty this week. Two of the cats are basically in heat, despite being fixed, so they’re just rolling around the house, whining, meowing, pissing off the giant 25-pound male cat of the house, who’s resorted to making sounds equivalent to Megamind’s robots (if you don’t understand that reference, check out this video) and occasionally shitting OUTSIDE the litter box. What a bastard.
Today’s music of choice – Steelheart – who provided the voice and several songs for the 2001 Rockstar movie featuring Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston. Check out an unplugged, stripped version of “She’s Gone”, where you’ll witness one of the most insane vocals on a male… ever.
