Wish granted! Around 7pm, we were able to put together this recipe. It was delicious...with soy sauce and green onion, but also some shaved Parmesan and red pepper flakes. A fusion dish, if you will.

The first step was to dredge the chicken in flour and fry slightly to give it some crispiness. Nope....the hot oil just seemed to rinse the flour right off the chicken! I added some broccoli to the final dish just to get in some veggies.
To sum up, this wasn't bad. But it wasn't good, either. I might be better off just ordering takeout next time!

With the arrival of fall comes the cool air that makes me want to have soup. So last weekend seemed like a good time ti to make a second soup in order to work on my Day Zero list.
This recipe came from Taste of Home online, but I found it on Pinterest. It's a very simple recipe, and doesn't have a ton of leftovers. The ingredients include celery, bacon, potatoes, cream style corn, onion, milk and salt/pepper. The first step, sauteeing the bacon, onions and celery on the stove made the house smell incredible. It came together quickly and made a nice lunch for a cool Sunday. I did add a sprinkle of smoked paprika before serving to give it that extra oomph.

It was a big hit, with fruit, juice, waffles, 2 kinds of quiche, bacon AND sausage and the piece de resistance....a birthday cake made from caramel-iced cinnamon rolls! Everyone loved the food, and I'll bet NO ONE was hungry for lunch!
Happy Birthday Mom and Dad!
