It still amazes me how many different people I have become friends with that I never would have run across in my every day life! Today I met a fellow blogger – we have been following each others blogs for probably almost a year if not longer? She lives in Milwaukee, but she and her boyfriend were hitting up Woodfield and Ikea and asked if I would like to meet them for lunch – done!
I knew I was going to split a pepperoni pizza with Hannah, so breakfast was on the small side for me – just a simple egg/meat/cheese sammie! These English muffins get extra crispy!
Hannah drove today – the older I get, the more I hate driving, and when she drives I get to read a magazine! I am LOVING the Jan/Feb Cooking Light! So many great recipes! Thanks for driving Hanners!
When Mel showed her boyfriend J the huge burger Tony had at the soft opening at The Lucky Monk, he couldn’t wait to try it! He didn’t even eat breakfast yesterday in anticipation of it! He ended up getting the 9 ounce Farmhouse – with a fried egg on top! I know Sophia and Brandi will LOVE the runny yolk! You can check out their menu here.
Mel got a chicken sandwich on a pretzel roll:
And Hannah and I split a 12 inch pizza – it was big, we still had three pieces left! We both love the big slices of pepperoni.
Thanks for a great time today Mel and J!!
The best part about reading each others blogs is that we already knew so much about each other, it isn’t weird meeting in person – she’s just as cute and fun as she comes across on her blog!
Dinner was Thanksgiving in January – my store had Jennie-O turkey breasts on sale for .99 cents a pound – I got a 6 pound one – my plan is to have it for dinner, then cutting off the rest for sandwiches later in the week for me and Tony – not bad for $6 bucks!
My plate with a cup of mashed potatoes and stuffing.
There was a lot of meat on this! Not only did I get dinner last night, but I have 6 ounces of shredded turkey to add to a soup later on:
And I have 1.2 pounds of chunk turkey breast to cut for sandwiches this week:
Okay so I knew I wanted to make wonton soup for one of my lunches this week. I decided to puree my Chinese leftovers from Saturday night and use that as a filling. Guess what? It was delicious! I just added some spicy stir fry sauce to kick it up a notch.
Then used about 1 tsp. of filling into each wonton:
Eight wontons are a serving:
I steamed them in a covered pan until the water evaporated, about 5 minutes, then added a touch of oil and Pam to pan fry them:
These turned out really good! You’ll just have to come back tomorrow to see how I put the soup together!
Off to get ready for work – can’t believe it’s Monday again already! Have a great day!
