Big Sticks Are Awesome

Is it wrong that when I saw these in the store I thought "wow those would make some awesome kabobs!"

I stopped in the store today to get a can of black beans. I only had $3 cash and didn't really want to use my ATM card but I had enough for the beans and a soda. These were right by the check out so I just grabbed one. I feel like such a cheater. Sorry Diet Coke, I still love you better!!

Tonight for dinner I made this recipe for Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake.

I forgot the corn! DOH! Remembered after I had put it in the oven and was figuring out the calories. It was fine without it though.

I actually ended up cutting this serving in 1/2 so it would be less calories. I figured it out to be 330 calories for 1/8th of the recipe. I obviously added some olives and I also had to use regular cheese since SOMEONE who says they didn't do it ate all the fat free cheddar cheese I had bought for quesadillas.

Trevor had kept asking me if he could sleep on the couch tonight. He sleeps out here almost every weekend and vacation. Kind of like camping out. I kept telling him no it's not Friday yet he has to sleep in his room. So the little booger got himself all cuddled up and fell asleep over 1/2 an hour before bedtime.  Guess he wins.

There is something about sleeping on the couch. When I was a kid we only got to sleep on the couch when we were sick. It was a right of being sick.

That is so funny about sleeping on the sofa. I do it as an adult but never wanted to as a kid. Of course unless I was sick. I felt isolated and felt like I was missing something with being stuck in my room!

I had kabobs last night. Only my skewers weren't that big. :-)
And mine are metal. but your chicken dish looked awesome!

I've made that recipe before too - though I've put my own spin on it because I rarely ever leave a recipe the same. (o;

I never got to do anything like sleep on the couch when I was a kid. You're a cool mom!

I bet I'd like the rice bake better without the corn. What were those skewers for?
