Saturday Michael and were lazy bums. We spent pretty much the entire day watching Season 1 of Damages. I felt like a sloth but it was needed. I’ve been feeling run down and exhausted the last few days.
Dinner was simple on Saturday night. I used my new rice cooker to make rice while I made Michael a salad and steamed carrots for me.
It was a good, filling dinner that took less than 10 minutes to make. Protein, carb, veggies, fat. The perfect dinner. The rotisserie chicken wasn’t as savory as it has been in the past (a little on the dry side) but most of the time it’s great.
Sunday night Michael and I had some friends over for dinner. I made my new favorite recipe: West African Cashew Soup. You can find the recipe and directions here.
Our friends brought a loaf of Roasted Garlic French Bread to go with the soup.
Michael’s old roommate Shoe gave us a bottle of champagne last year for Christmas and we decided it was time to enjoy it!
The soup was a hit! I am so glad it turned out just as delicious as the first time I made it since we had guests over. The champagne was really nice too. We each had a glass and the bottle was finished.
Michael was really sweet and said that this recipe was by far the winner of 2010. 🙂
QUESTION: What are your favorite ways to use leftover chicken?
