Crock Pot Chicken Soup

16 Jan

As promised, here’s the crock pot chicken soup recipe! After running the grocery store yesterday morning, I threw everything into the crock pot, ran errands and returned home to a delicious smell that had invaded every inch of the house. It’s not exactly the fastest meal to put together but it is definitely worth it.

Lady Luck

14 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mom and I took advantage of her rare weekend off to finally celebrate our December birthdays with a trip down to Mystic, Connecticut. I had been to this quiet seaside town when I was younger to visit their aquarium but hadn’t been back since. Friday night, after Mom got home from work, we drove down and grabbed some dinner before settling in for the night. She had quiet a weekend planned for us. Continue reading

Stir Fries and Study Breaks

4 Oct

It is finally Thursday, or at least it will be when this post finally goes up. You’ve almost made it to yet another weekend so hang in there! I know that I am looking forward to relaxing and hopefully kicking what is left of this cold that just won’t seem to go away. It’s definitely been taking a lot out of me this week and it’s been killing me that I haven’t had a chance to work out. I have, however, had plenty of time to study. Yesterday, I spent a few hours at Barnes and Noble studying for my Astronomy and Organic tests next week with a yummy Naked Green Machine. It’s nice to finally study at a BN where everyone else looks just as nerdy as I do. Back home, I was usually one of the only people with all of my textbooks spread all over the big tables.

Studying and snacks!

I returned to my apartment and sat in our kitchen for a while before finally realizing that I was absolutely starving. I haven’t had much of an appetite the past few days with this cold so when I realized I did, I wasn’t even sure what to eat. I also realized that I haven’t been grocery shopping in ages so I was left rummaging through the cabinets to find something yummy. Fortunately, I found some mushrooms in the fridge and soy sauce in a package that my dad had sent me at the beginning of the school year. My dad always makes beef and broccoli with the sauce back home so I figured I could manage to make some stir fry mushrooms the same way.

Before adding the sauce

I threw about half the carton of mushrooms into a frying pan and added a bit of olive oil. I let the mushrooms sit in the oil for a bit while the browned, occasionally stirring them until they reached a texture that I liked. Then, I added a bit of the soy sauce and mixed it together with the mushrooms and voila! Dinner! I whipped up some white rice on the side and mixed it together after taking a yummy looking picture….

Dinner is served!

Well I am off to finish some more homework, watch the debate and eventually get a great night sleep! I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and hang in there! It’s almost Friday!

P.S. I updated the recipe and fashion pages!
