What am I celebrating? First, it’s a long weekend and I have no commitments. Second, my birthday is on Tuesday so I am celebrating another year by stretching this weekend out as much as possible. Last night we went to a great restaurant for prime rib and then followed it up with Footloose the Musical. I always buy a book for my birthday but I am not sure what to buy this year.
I’m thinking that breakfast is needed. Preferably, breakfast that I do not have to cook. Eggs Benedict sounds really good. I know this one place that puts it on top of fresh tomatoes for me and then tops it with avocado.
I am taking my actual birthday off but I decided to serve my daughter’s volleyball team lunch that day so I will be heading down to the high school for that and then will return later to watch the game.
I have book club this week. I suppose I should read the book. It’s my book too, Lincoln in the Bardo.
I just finished A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena. Let me tell you, it was quite the challenge because my eBook was corrupted!! Every other sentence was gibberish. Amazingly, I don’t think I missed any key points but it was a review copy so I didn’t want to give up on it as long as the story was making sense.
Oh man. Guess what starts on my birthday? American Horror Story!! I know exactly what I will be doing that night. It comes on late but I am going to try to stay up to watch it.
I made this awesome Baked Chicken Caesar dish that could not have been any easier. All you do is place boneless chicken breasts in a baking dish, top with a good quality creamy Caesar dressing, bake it at 400 for about 20 minutes. Top with shredded Parmesan and then bake for another 15 minutes. It turned out so good and so tender. I served it with boiled red potatoes and roasted green beans.
I am also making ham steaks, scalloped potatoes and peas. I am still on the lookout for a great casserole cookbook so if you know of one that is not heavy on gluten, let me know.
I had a health scare a few weeks back but I got the results on Friday and I am good. SO grateful for those results and that the doctor stayed there to read them to me. A long holiday weekend of worry would not have been good.
