Chicken Mushroom Alfredo

serves 2

Alfredo Sauce:

1 pint of whipping cream (not whipped cream, whipping cream)
1 stick of butter
as much parmesan cheese as you want
sprinkle of dried basil leaves

pour/place all ingredients in saucepan, and leave on low heat until thick, stirring occasionally.

Chicken Mushroom*:
heat olive oil in a frying pan
Dice 3-5 chicken tenders or breasts
slice several mushrooms

sautée chicken and mushrooms in pan with a dash of salt, pepper, and basil

*Vegetarians can just use mushroom or soy meat

mix & serve with pasta


Mac N Cheese

8oz Munster
8oz Mild Cheddar
8oz Monterey Jack
8oz Sharp Cheddar (although I prefer Extra Sharp)
1/2 block of Velveeta/Cheese substitute
2 eggs
2 cups half & half
1 stick of butter, melted (it's better for you than margerine, but if you want to use that, go ahead)
1 1lb bag of elbow noodles
optional: a couple cans of stewed tomatoes
garlic powder

Boil the noodles w/ some olive oil so that they don't stick together. Shred the cheeses (MMMS) & mix 'em together. Next, cut up the cheese substitute into blocks. Once the noodles are done boiling, drain 'em & stick 'em back in the pot. Preheat the oven to 325. Mix the butter, eggs, half & half, and the noodles together (if you're adding the garlic powder, now's a good time to do it). Then add the cheese & cheese sub and mix well. Put it in a pan and stick it in the oven for 30 minutes.
If you want to add the stewed tomatoes (for flavor), boil them while the noodles are baking.

So, in the interest of not wasting a whole lot of time by trying and then posting recipes that no one will use, how about you tell me what, if anything, you'd like to see?

Mango Chicken**

It's food time again!!!

Marinate chicken breasts or thighs (both are equally good) in a jerk marinade overnight, so that the flavor really seeps through the meat.

When you're ready to cook the meat, peel and slice (a) fresh mango(es). You can either grill the chicken, or put it in the oven.

For the grill:
Place the chicken on tin foil, and turn up the sides so that you can pour the marinade in as well. Top it with the mango, and grill.

For the oven:
Place the chicken, marinade, and mango slices into a baking tin and stick it in the oven at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, or until cooked.

Any leftovers make for a great sandwich.

A gentle reminder:
Do save yourself a nasty bout of food poisoning and a trip to the hospital by thoroughly cooking all meat products.

** For those of you who are vegetarian or vegan, I'm sure you could substitute the chicken for tofu, seitan, etc, but having never tried that, I don't know a) the cooking time & heat and b)how it would turn out.


someone shoot me.

You've got to be kidding me. The following is a verbatim conversation that I had with a coworker tonight.

her: Should I query this?
me: Why?
her: Because here it says his name is Bill, but over here it says it's William.
her: So? Should I?
me (trying really hard not to say something that'll get me fired): Nooo....
her: Are you sure?
me: Yes. Bill is short for William.
her: Really? No.. Really?!? Shut up! Stop messing with me!
me: *blink* *blink* oooooooooook...

How is it that some people are so fucking stupid? I mean, doesn't it hurt???
My dad and I saw As You Like It at the El Camino Real Playhouse tonight. I like plays. I like open casting calls. But please, please, please, PLEASE, if you're going to put on a play, make sure you have people who can not only ACT, but who at least will go through the trouble of memorizing their lines!!

It seems that people don't get why I hate humanity as a whole. Here are a couple of very recent very near and dear to my heart examples as to why:

Not only was I caught in the middle of an armed robbery last week, but to top it off, in the past week:

- some very sick people, to whom I've never done ANYTHING, decided to say that I lied about it just so that I could get an extended lunch.
- these same people also decided that it obviously must have been me who "ratted out" an alcoholic coworker for drinking on the job.
- my friend Kevin got stabbed.
- my friend PB was mugged at a gas station after work.

The latter three I chalk up to pure stupidity. The former two, to being raised by wolves. I don't give a flying rat's ass whether or not people like me. That, however, is just rude, and I certainly have never been more insulted in my whole life. People are cretins.

More reasons:

- The pedophilic group in Holland trying to become a political party
- racism
- sexism
- double standards
- outsourcing
- gangsta rap
- animal abuse
- child abuse
- rape

do you really need me to continue??

Consultants. What sort of person is ok with making money by looking for ways to get rid of other peoples' jobs?

On another note:

Q: what cracked out idiot decides to wear dark clothes and take a stroll down the middle of the 91 into oncoming traffic at one in the morning?
A: The one I would have hit if I had seen him any later than I did. That's right. He wasn't even on the shoulder. He was walking down the middle of the lane.

I'm done.
