Yesterday, more chicken!

Plus ice cream!

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I decided to eat something and the first thing that came to mind was an ice cream cone, so I made it so!

I may eat something else too!

It is early but I am thinking of some more chicken.  Maybe chicken wings?  I need to finish off some frozen chicken wings.  I have not generally been pleased with the low quality of frozen then heat them up wings.  But restaurants probably often use frozen chicken wings.

It is in the preparation too, I know!

Egg on grilled toast. I had a milkshake as an appetizer. It is my birthday so I don’t follow rules on my birthday.

I use a tiny 1 liter deep fryer for cooking for one.  It is perfect for small stuff like chicken wings.
I set it to 350 degrees and monitor the temperature with a non-contact IR cooking thermometer.

Spaghetti with meat sauce for one in the Summer.

Cook 2oz of spaghetti in water seasoned with salt for 8minutes in lightly boiling water.  I use about 1inch of water in a 1 quart Pyrex dish.  Drain water of spaghetti in a colander. No need to use more water.

Brown 3oz of hamburger and 1oz of spicy Italian sausage in a small skillet.  Be careful not to burn the meat as small skillet gets very hot if you aren't careful. When the pink is gone, spoon away excess grease . Turn off heat and add pasta sauce and Parmesan cheese.  When the sauce is at the desired thickness, remove from stove and use it to top the pasta. Enjoy! 

No leftovers and minimal heating of the kitchen when the weather is hot. Splurge on good pasta sauce if you can afford it. Pasta sauce constantly goes on sale.  Stock up on the good stuff.  It is better from a food safety standpoint to cook small quantities to avoid having food constantly passing through the "danger zone" of 40F to 140F.  I keep the meat in the freezer until a day or two before I need it.  Then it goes into the refrigerator.

It is still early but I was hungry so I decided to make some of my cheesy peas to see if that might be enough.  We shall see!
