Catch Up

I apologize for the lack of posts as of late, but unfortunately I've been cheating on the kitchen with the rest of the house.  On Monday, Mike and I officially dove into the deep end: cohabitation.  I'm still getting settled in, and I promise i'll be back with new recipes soon enough, but in the meantime, here's a look at my recent happenings (I'll skip the exhausting moving details!)...

Mike and I took a moving break to celebrate Valentine's Day.  He took me to the Basics (my fave) and even surprised me with flowers at work.  He is so romantical (if Paula Deen says romantical is a word, then I believe it)...



We weren't planning on exchanging gifts, but he surprised me with a new hood over the oven!  It's the perfect, final touch to my new kitchen, and makes a lovely accompaniment to the garbage disposal he gave me for my birthday.  No, i'm not being sarcastic - 3 years of living without a garbage disposal, this is a dream come true! 


In an effort to distract him as I take over his house, I surprised him with a chain saw.  The man at Home Depot firmly pressed the receipt in my hand advising that if my Valentine gift goes awry, my fiancĂ© could always exchange it!  Yeah right.  


Tonight was the first night I was settled in enough to break in the new kitchen.  Sadly, my creative instincts are completely lacking this week so I decided I'd try out someone else's recipe!  This Baked Chicken Parmesan from Skinny Taste turned out to be delicious.  I'd highly recommend this lightened-up version of the Italian classic.  


Happy Friday!
