Positive things



I'm in a fairly good mood tonight. The day sucked; it was dar4k and rainy, and the TTC was packed, and humid and smelly. I was exhausted all day. But this evening is going well.




I went to the nutritionist tonight, and discovered that thanksgiving only gave me an extra half pound, so given how madly I was eating, that means that I'm still on track, despite how horribly my mind has been telling me I was for the last few weeks.




I found a white wine I like! Mission Hill's Sauvignon Blanc is a nice, sweet, fruity wine. I generally find white wines too sharp. But, white is what the food called for this evening...




On food; I improvised tonight, and it worked out well; we had a block of frozen chicken thighs, and no time to wait for them to thaw. So, I cooked them in chicken stock and the aforementioned white wine to get it to thaw. Then I added garlic and onions, a lot of paprika (some sweet, some hot), and a pile of red and green peppers. When it was all cooked, I poured on some low fat sour cream and served it with a couple hunks of bread. Tasty!




I love experimenting with food. Growing up, food was generally prepared from a fairly small list of tried and true recipes. My mom doesn't really love cooking; for her, it's more something she does because she has to, and because no one else does. She also inherited a tendency to overcook vegetables from her mother, so things tended to be a bit bland in general. Since moving in with Zil, though, I've been having more and more fun cooking, and cooking well. Making food has become another creative outlet for me.

If you like sweet white wines, have you tried the Piesporter yet? Be sure to spend a bit more and get the one labeled 'mit predikat'. They were all I would drink for years.

My tastes have since changed and now I am a fan of a good cabernet savignon or a shiraz blend. Been drinking a lot of Australian wines lately.
