Okay this entry is going to be long, since there's a lot to talk about. But I'll try to keep it as short as I can.

In short, my Granny had a heartattack on Saturday afternoon. It was very minor, and she got to come home this evening, so we're hoping everything's going to be alright. She had to have a stint put in, but I don't know all the details. I'm going to go over tomorrow and talk to her about it and figure everything out.

Secondly, I needed to share this. It was my lunch today. And it was FANTASTIC.

And now on to TV, since other than the hearttack, that's the only thing that's been going on the past few days.

I would like to know who decided shows should have seasons. And I would like to hurt that person. I don't want my shows to end!

Thankfully I still have at least one more week left on a few of my shows.

Finally finished the cat box yesterday. Pictures are under the cut. Now if we could only get the cat to use it. . . I've put her food up on the grate so she'll get used to jumping up in it, but I haven't seen or heard her using the box yet. Oh well. I spent too much time on this box for her not to use it.

Cat Box Box )

Didn't get to walk yesterday, since the cat box needed to be stained, and I was gone all day buying the last minute things and putting it together. Then my mom and I made zucchini fries to go with dinner. They are fabulous. Make them. Seriously.

So now I'm on the treadmill. Brother has a game tonight, but I'm trying to get out of going. I hate baseball.

Beware: Image Heavy Post Ahead

So I made that delicious chicken/almond/zucchini thing again tonight, and this time I remembered to take pictures to show everyone.

Warning: Deliciousness Ahead )

In other news, tomorrow is Mother's Day. So today my dad and I went out to get Mom her present. Mom's always like handmade stuff more than bought things, so I decided that since I already have a bunch of pastel acrylic paints from last summer's art projects, I would buy her a photo box and paint it all pretty. Here's what happened.

Craftiness Abounds! )

I went to the library today, since I decided to torture myself by reading all the great romances over the summer. I'm starting out with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It's really long, and due back on the 22nd. If I can pull myself away from the computer long enough to read it, I know I can have it finished. I'm excited to get some culture.

I bought something else today. A neoprene waist trimming band. I saw it on Dr. Oz the other day and really wanted to give it try, and when I saw one at Walmart today for 5 bucks I couldn't resist. I've only been wearing it for a few hours, but it's really making me aware of my posture. I have terrible posture except RIGHT after I do yoga, so this will be good for that. I don't know what effect it's actually going to have on my waist trimming, but at this point I'm willing to try anything.

New Doctor Who on tonight, and I'm really excited. I'll save that for another post though, after it's over. I don't want to make this post any longer than it already is.

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 )
