You know how much I enjoy cooking. Well....that's not really true. I enjoy EATING good cooking, and I'd MUCH prefer someone else doing the cooking. At times I coveted Oprah's personal cook, Rosie, thinking that'd be the life, to have your own personal cook. I'd be REALLY FAT, though, if that was the case. I digress...back to tonite's dinner. I'm going to try morphing two delicious sounding recipes together, that I found on KITCHN's website. I'm going to morph Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan's version of Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Coconut recipe with Jaimie's original recipe. Chicken in Milk, and do my WeightWatcher's magic on them. I'm going to lighten them up, and lower the 'Points' value. That's been the thing that's benefitted me most as a 'Lifetime' member, for 9 years. I just hope this is going to be as fabulous as Faith Durand swears!


Today is project day. This was the first summer in years that I haven't gotten my windows washed. So today, it's on my 'to do ' list, with many other things. Here's my 'to do' list.

1. Wash windows with my new Oxo squeegee. You can use this for your windows, then transfer it to your shower. It's the BEST. It will squeegee off EVERY drop! Yay Oxo! I love their products.

2. Arrange my newly cut and dried hydrangeas. You can even buy pre-arranged, already-dried hydrangea bouquets on Ebay.

3. Take care of my sick boy. I was originally going to go buy 'cold' ingredients for a cold. Now we think he has swine flu. He has ALL the symptoms: body aches, fever, cough, sore throat. Because of our crummy insurance, I asked the pharmacist what the cost of Tamiflu is. 10 tablets cost $100. So...guess what. Sonny boy, is going to get lots of water, rest, juice, rest, and mother-care. No Tamiflu for this patient.
