1 bowl of vanilla-almond Special K
Special K is this week’s healthy cereal option. Special K by itself is disgusting. But this one, with some kind of sweet vanilla coating and almonds, is pretty darn good. And there’s a picture on the cereal box of a heart with a tape measure around it to signify that the cereal is healthy. Now I can eat 2-3 bowls without worrying about my heart exploding and causing an excruciating death.
Chrissie made this lunch for me. What a sweetheart. She baked chicken underneath a breadcrumb crust and tomatoes. I inhaled it in five minutes because it was very tasty, I was hungry and I had a lot of work to do. Not to sound like Don Draper, but I like it when a woman cooks for me while I’m too busy working. Fuck it, I hereby adopt Don Draper as my workplace icon. I’m going to start wearing a wool suit to work, keep a bottle of Scotch in my desk and objectify women like an Eames chair.
2 slices of lemon meringue pie
WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THAT OCTOBER IS PIE MONTH AT MARIE CALLENDARS!!! I went 14 days without getting a $6.99 pie. WTF?! I went across the street and bought this pie five minutes after my co-worker told me about the pie sale. Lemon meringue is arguably my favorite pie and I ate 2 slices (1/4 of the entire pie) to make up for lost times. There’s a good chance that I’ll write about 15 different pies over the rest of October. I smell a special series…
cambezola cheese with crackers and fig jam
1 roast pork tenderloin with a spice rub
side of wild rice and dried cherries
side of sauteed mini-portobello mushrooms
side salad of cambezola cheese, prosciutto and mini heirloom tomatoes
1 glass of white wine
1 slice of lemon meringue pie
My friend Lucy invited Abigail and I over for dinner on Wednesday, but I originally couldn’t go because of my weekly softball game. Well, the E! softball league cancelled all the games on Wednesday because the managers wanted to watch the Phillies and Dodgers instead. It totally makes sense for 11 people to cancel the games for everyone at the very last second so they can watch Jimmy Rollins ass-fuck the Dodgers into the offseason. I’m sure it was worth it.
Personally, I’m glad the games were cancelled. You see, Lucy is an excellent cook. Look at the picture above. That pork tenderloin, rice, salad and mushrooms? As the French might say, quel fucking awesome. And before dinner, she brought out a block of cambezola cheese, which is a cross of camembert and brie. Lucy, whoever marries you will be one happy and well-fed man. Alas, it can’t be me because it’s common knowledge that no woman can ever hope to tame me, nor put up with my 2 am Rock Band drumming (those things are LOUD). But I’ll be sure to pass along any fan e-mails and/or stalker letters.
I should note that for dessert, we had more pie. Best $6.99 I’ve ever spent.
