Sad sad sad dinner

You ever have just "one of those days"? You know, where things just keep going wrong or getting crazy? Yesterday was one of those for me.

I had to work late and got home around 9pm starving. Luckily I had worked out in the morning so that was out of the way. Before leaving the office I thought about what I had in my refrig at home, and remembered I had leftover chicken! Yum! I could make a spinach salad with it.

When I got home I broiled red peppers, sauteed some onions. I made a tasty tapenade. Here is the "recipe" for you:

1/4 cup kalamata olives
2 cloves roasted garlic
tablespoon olive oil
pinch red pepper flakes
juice from 1/2 small lemon

Blend up in mini blender thingie. Yum! Kind of spicy and tangy. You can add capers if you like, I planned to but tasted it beforehand and liked it without.

Anyway, so I'm cooking and blending and get the chicken out to start shredding. But wait, it doesn't look right??? I smell it. Yep, something went wrong and the chicken is bad.

I haven't really eaten very well or very much for the last two days so I really want my protein, sadly there is nothing in the refrig. No chicken for Miss Yummy. That made me sad.

What made me happy is that I had bacon, so I made a salad with a side of bacon. That was good! Very good! Dinner happy, not sad.

my salad w tasty tapenade yum! Not shown - bacon. Cuz I ate it.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends! This weekend I'm moving from my crappy dinky apt to a bigger one so hopefully next week I'll have some good meals to share from my new kitchen!! YAY!
