Okay, now I'm going to expound upon yesterdays mini post, because I was exhausted.

I decided this summer while I'm home and my brother is in school that I'm going to walk to pick him up during the week. We only live about a mile and a half from his school, so it's a three mile walk almost every day. It's really not a big deal, and it feels really good. . . after the exhaustion has worn off of course. I'm hoping that, along with the walking on the treadmill will do a lot to help the weight boost. It was really weird the first morning after the walk when my right knee wouldn't work though.

Another thing I discovered that I hadn't watched before: Dr. Oz. New favorite show. I enjoy educational television. Today he was talking about alternative medicine, and I think I've found something I want to try. A jelly bath. You put this gel stuff in the water and it keeps the heat in longer than regular water. It appears to be very relaxing. I should try it.

It's been a long day, otherwise. Dad worked up enough time that he doesn't have to go to work today, so he stayed home. . . and when Dad stays home, we do work. Last night we mowed half the LARGE yard, and today we finished that off, cut some tree limbs, and washed three cars. I'm thoroughly exhausted, but still walking on the treadmill.

I couldn't decide which icon to use for this post, the cooking or the movie one, but since I want to talk about the food I made tonight more than the movie I watched, I'll use the cooking one.

I'm a big fan of just finding random ingredients and throwing them together into something delicious. The last time I did it, there was pasta, tomatoes, roast beef, Parmesan cheese, Italian dressing, peppers, and zucchini involved, and it was basically like eating heaven.

Today I had something equally delicious. I wish I had taken pictures of it, since it looked REALLY good too, but that just means that I get to make it again later! Anyway, I have a bag of frozen grilled chicken strips, so I drizzled some olive oil in a skillet, put some strips in there to heat up. Along with that, I threw in a little bit of parsley, oregano, and thyme (my go-to herbs), and then I sliced up a bit of zucchini REALLY thin, and tossed it into the pan along with some roasted almonds. The result was AMAZING, and I can't wait to make/eat it again.

On a second point, I watched Iron Man again today with my father, in preparation for going to see the second movie. I loved it just as much this time as I did the first time I watched it. Robert Downey Jr. is quite delicious. I mean seriously, look at this:

Yummy yum yums )
