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! :D 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!
