We are having a lazy day here at home. I wish I could say a QUIET day also, but with a toddler living above us- no such luck there. As promised, an update regarding the new dinner recipe from Friday. While looking for something new, and relatively healthy for dinner, I came across this recipe. I served it over orzo pasta instead of egg noodles (because I didn’t have any, and didn’t feel like venturing to the store). In hindsight the egg noodles would have been better. Overall, it is basically a chicken version of beef stroganoff, with diced tomato instead of tomato paste. So, newish…but not really. Gabe liked it though, and I consider that a win. I served it with brussels sprouts sauteed in a balsamic vinegar-dijon sauce.
Yesterday we ventured across the river to check out some antique shops. I came across a BEAUTIFUL copy of Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty- illustrated. I died a little. Then I looked at the price, and I died a bit more. $375.

I would have loved to buy this book, it’s not THE illustrated copy to have (search George Ford Morris’ version) but the color plates are lovely anyway. It was a successful venture though, Gabe found some tools that he was looking for. All I got was hot wings and a chicken sandwich.
We have a busy week coming up, I am going to Baltimore for a trade show Tue-Wed, and then Gabe will be away for the weekend. My weekday plans are to come as close to finishing my chicken as I can, bake a loaf of “crusty” artisan bread (I promise to post the recipe and pictures) and who knows what else! We shall see what the week brings us!
