Last night I got some baking done, and wrote a paper, now that's mutlitasking. I wanted to get some meals ready for the week, so I would not have to worry about it during school. I made my Mom's newest recipe for pork chops (covering them with a cola/ketchup/brown sugar marinade) and some risotto for dinner last night. There are still 3 chops left. I thought I overcooked them, but Matt said they were tasty. And with all of the bugs around the world today, I guess it is better to overcook them than to undercook them! I also made a variation on Bryan's Moms Baked Ziti (not pictured). I just kinda threw stuff in the pot to make the sauce and then added Rigatoni. It was really good. Does that make me a real chef, when I don't need to follow a recipe by heart, I can just go by guesssing? haha What I love about this recipe is it makes a LOT of pasta. So I have one casserole dish in the fridge, and one in the freezer. Plus 3 mini casseroles. Enough to last us quite awhile!
This morning, Matt decided to make omelettes for us, actually, he did this yesterday too. i loved waking up to the scent of scrambled eggs and potatoes! This is definitely something I can get used to! haha He has put our toaster oven to use, that thing is his baby! I think he would be able to survive with the toaster oven, the foreman, and the magic bullet. haha Anyways, breakfast was delish! And as I sat down to eat, Matt said: "Don't worry, I already got pictures, just go ahead and enjoy your breakfast." Wow. He knows me well! Here are his pictures of a perfect Monday morning breakfast, definitely makes Mondays much better:
