Good food and good sex

I gained ten pounds on my cruise to Mexico with my daughter. I tried all kinds of new food, like snails (not bad), caramel flan, (to die for), and I can't remember what else. I didn't have one pound to play with, so I'm not fitting into any of my clothes, except a mu-mu sort of thing I bought in Ensenada. I have rolls of fat. Well, big ones now. They were medium size before.

In that distant past that was the first of March.

I'm a strange eater, I get on food kicks like a little kid. I will eat sliced tomatoes, with salt & pepper 24/7. In December, even, when tomatoes are pretty awful. Then I'll switch to butterfinger candy bars. I can go days without eating at all, to speak of. And suddenly be starving.

Which is sad for Bill, because when I don't feel like eating, I don't feel like cooking and he loves to eat. My cooking is awful at those times, we eat a lot of frozen pizza.

But lately, food looks good to me. The past week, especially, I've been eating myself out of house and home. Fat sandwiches with sliced ham, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion and avocado, crackers and brie (which I don't know how to prepare, really), vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and lots of nuts. I'm an eating fool.

So I thought I'd share this new recipe that I tried yesterday, it was quite wonderful really.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (not the whole breasts, the halves)
Beaten egg
Italian bread crumbs
Ragu pasta sauce (or any brand, really, I think)
Shredded mozzarella cheese, however much you like

I cut up the chicken pieces into about 3" x 3" squares, dipped them in the egg, then the Italian bread crumbs and placed them in a dish. I baked them at 350 degrees for an hour, but I think that was too long. I'd say no more than 40 minutes, but you can judge for yourself.

Then I took the pan out and poured the sauce over the chicken and sprinkled the cheese on top and cooked it for about 10 minutes longer.

I took small red potatoes and cut them in half and put them in a dish. I sprinkled them with parsley and onion powder and a little salt and cut up chunks of margarine. Then I covered them and baked them with the chicken.

And cooked some perfect asparagus.

You guys, great meal. Unless you're a vegetarian or on a diet, which I will be shortly.

The sex, you figure out that recipe yourself.

Oh you're tricky. Putting sex in the title just to drum up traffic. Tsk tsk!
The (food)recipe sounds great. Especially the asparagus. I certainly don't eat enough asparagus, but really, who does?

Well, whatever works, I guess.

:) no really, I had Wolfgang Puck's voice going through my mind, talking about good food and good sex.

I'm so fat I don't think I'll ever have sex again.

Do you know how to add links to one's blog? I tried it for an hour last night and it didn't work.

Click here for instructions on creating a link.

Ann, that was hilarious. You had me bracing myself for TMI and then that final sentence.

By the way, I'm glad to see that you have enabled anonymous comments. Nice work!

Now it's time for you to get a blogroll going ...

Anne, if you need more specific instructions than the information than Gary gave you can email me. I'm at starfoxy7 at gmail d'org

Thanks, you guys, I'll try it.

Okay, last night, I made bacon wrapped filet mignon, baked potatoes, broccoli AND mixed white and yellow corn kernels, followed by caramel ice cream sundaes smothered in nuts.

Then later I had Ritz crackers and cheese.

And this morning I made strawberry filled crepes covered with cool whip, sausage links (Canada has the BEST sausage links), and potato pancakes that took me an hour to make. I forgot to make the hot chocolate I'd planned.

I'm going to need an intervention before this affair with food ends. It's probably because I've stopped snorting cocaine.

I think the recipe for the chicken stuff sounds excellent.

As does strawberry crepes and sausage. Mmmm... sausage.

Who's Wolfgang Puck?

Wolfgang Puck is the chef to the stars. He's on TV all the time showing his recipes. A funny guy.

Winding down on the food front. I've lost 3 pounds already.
