Honey mustard chicken with dauphinoise and bread.
(This is me trying to prove my best friend just how much she and her roomies need me in their life)
my best friend came over today for a nice film-game-girl talk evening and I of course cooked her something real nice :) as you can see above.
It was a nice -quite delicious actually, Honey Mustard Chicken a very cheesy Dauphinoise and nice bread.
The chicken was marinated in gourmet mustard, honey, olive and garlic oil, salt and pepper and mustard seeds mix. Before being cooked on a skillet until each side was slightly browned.
I added a hell of a lot more cheese than what the recipe called for on the Dauphinoise but, cheese is good. So it ended up being a pretty damn good --cheesy, potato casserole.
Onion, potatoes, garlic, cream and lots and lots of cheese :)
And nice bread.
Sounds easy --and it was.
And it was also pretty darn good.
But if I am going to be honest here...
I think what really made this food really great was the company :)
My best friend and my sister.
Two of the most awesome people I have the absolute pleasure of knowing.
The two of them have been the best ever and supported me and helped me to overcome a lot of difficulties that presented themselves at the last 5 months of 2011 and I can honestly say that if it hadn't been for them... I wouldn't be in this wicked awesome place I am right now.
And OK fine.
The me I am right now... is not the work of just the two awesome girls I've just mentioned. Really it was a team work between them and my other friends, who have been equally and amazingly great.
I have really few words to describe just how blessed I feel for having them all in my life. And I am pretty sure you all know who you are :)
And if you are ever nice enough to read my blog ;) here is my massive
It's been tough. When this all began I was pretty sure I wasn't going to get through with it. I was really scared and really sad and just how you'd expect a girl to be after she was dumped by her 3 almost 4 year boyfriend.
But mostly I was scared, I was afraid I'd end up alone.
I think most of us (you people who are reading this) have had the type of relationship where you dive yourself so deep that you end up alienating yourself from the rest of the world and when it ends... it sucks.
I kept thinking if I had invested all my time and stuff in one person and he didn't appreciate it enough to want to stay, then why the hell would any of my friends be there for me when I had been such a crappy friend for the last few years.
They were all there.
Made me realize just how stupid I'd been and how incredibly lucky I am.
I guess sometimes you need to go through really ugly shit to come up with a sort of epiphany about how wicked awesome life really is... to see just how lucky we are and how much friendship really means and cheesy beautiful things you hear at the end of one of those teenage angst-romantic comedy kind of films.
Ooooh! We are also pretty darn excited about our birthday being this weekend :) Friday 13th the big beautiful highly anticipated 21.
Did I just hear you say Vegas?! I know I've been hearing it since this new year began ;)
Really Really excited.
Hopefully I'll end up with fun pictures to show you and I'll probably be baking my own cake or cupcakes or pie or whatever so... yeah.
