Chicken Big

I eat a lot of chicken. I buy it pretty much in bulk, buy one bag and get one free. I accidentally bought a couple of bags a couple of months ago that weren't de-boned and well, the freezer was over taken with chicken breasts. I couldn't bring myself to use them (I don't do bones), so I finally took them to my parents.

Anyway, so tonight I decided to not only make one of my favorite meals, but satisfy a naughty craving. I'm not supposed to have brie, but I figured if I cook it, then it is ok. So, Brie and Pesto Chicken Breast, Four Cheese Risotto and Sauteed Spinach. It's kind of a tedious meal to put together, as each one has very particular timing, but once it's finished, it is worth it.

Real. Live. Alligators.

So, I went to Florida over the weekend. You may recall, precious millions of readers, that I mentioned a while back that Florida is one a few states I had yet to visit. Well, we can cross her off the list now!!!

I spent 2 days in Tallahasse, the state capital, and a better representation of what Fla (that's what we're calling her here) really is. As opposed to Amusement Parkville and Pretty People Town, further south.

So anyway, it was a quiet weekend. I didn't really accomplish what I had intended, but I did get to see Real. Live. Alligators. It is necessary to punctuate it like that, or you don't give the alligators the respect they deserve, as our warning sign read.

As usual, I had to take pictures of my food. Got laughed at, as usual. (French Dip, by the way.)

We went to Wakulla Springs and ate in the restaurant at the Lodge. Was a gorgeous place. Built in the 1930's and still has the ambiance of the times. The ceiling was painted with scenes from around the property along with some of the animals that lived in the springs and swamp. Afterwards, we took a boat tour of the springs and got to see.......wait for it.....a REAL. LIVE. ALLIGATOR.! Actually, several of them, but you get the point.

Oh, and I got to see my first manatee. Yup, I'm 12 in a 31 year old's body!

So, that was my quick trip to Fla. Hopefully I will make it back one of these days and visit The Keys, Number 3 on my dream trips list.

I got sick at the mall today thinking of you...

I walked by Hollister while walking through the mall today. That stench they call cologne, pumping through their ventilation system. Pouring out in to the mall for all of us to choke on. YACK. Abercrombie & Fitch, GAP Body, and any other poser store........take it down a notch. Seriously.
