Day One-Hundred Thirty-Two - Ice Cream (6.14.14)

Yes, ice cream. We had my nephew's birthday party today and had a later lunch. I enjoyed ice cream with my family before heading back and came home to find that Potter fell asleep and hadn't eaten anything since lunch. Some of these days are just crazy and funny when you realize "Well, yea we had a late lunch, but I was hungry for dinner...just too tired."

Day One-Hundred Thirty-One - Petterino's and Chinese (6.13.14)

Tonight I was down in Chicago with my sisters so I had Petterino's. :) I enjoyed a chicken and mushroom pasta dish which had a wild mushroom sauce. Potter had Chinese - Szechuan Beef.

Day One-Hundred Thirty - Bandung Indonesian (6.12.14)

We still didn't go to the grocery store so don't have an updated selection for dishes. We decided to try take-out from a restaurant we've never had but has great ratings. I had the Nasi Kemangi with Chicken and Potter had the Nasi Super. We also had Lumpia for an appetizer (similar to an egg roll).

Day One-Hundred Twenty-Nine - Subway (6.11.14)

It has taken us 129 days to have Subway for dinner...holy cow! We have continued to have it for lunch many times, but today is the first time we had it for dinner. With summer comes a busier schedule and tonight's choice was the product of one of those evenings. We had an ultimate frisbee game and after enjoying after game drinks we needed something since we didn't have anything at home. We chose Subway and both enjoyed a Spicy Italian sub...mmm.

Day One-Hundred Twenty-Eight - Curry Coated Tilapia (6.10.14)

  • 2 6 oz tilapia fillets
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • Cooking spray
  1. In a small bowl combine curry, cayenne and salt.
  2. Spray each fillet with a light coating of cooking spray and then sprinkle with curry mixture. Use your fingers to rub the spices into the fish (do this on both sides).
  3. Cook tilapia about 2-3 minutes on each side or until just cooked through...Enjoy!

Potter: This was an interesting dish. It was good and definitely spicy but I felt like it was sort of bland (for lack of a better word), you could taste the curry and spice but there wasn't a lot of depth of flavor. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was good, I just like a little more variety of flavor to my main dish. 

Katie: This dish of tilapia was delicious. The spice snuck up on me in parts but I feel that was due to some of it being thicker in some spots over others. We had the fillets over thai curry rice and mixed veggies which was a good choice. I would recommend this dish as it is flavorful and quick.

Day One-Hundred Twenty-Seven - Great Dane (6.9.14)

Ah, we had The Great Dane for dinner again tonight due to being there after our first ultimate frisbee game with our team. We did have different dinners than Friday night though, of course! I enjoyed the Chicken Salad Croissant and Potter had the Madtown Mountie burger (which is a unique burger and just crazy with the toppings!).

Day One-Hundred Twenty-Six - BBQ Pork Chops (6.8.14)

  • 4 (4 oz each) bone-in pork chops
  • Dry rub
  • BBQ sauce
  1. Rub the dry rub onto each pork chop.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Spread BBQ sauce on each pork chop.
  4. Place chops onto grill grate and cook through (about 10 minutes).

Potter: This was a recipe we used to test my BBQ sauce and rub and boy is it still delicious. Pork chops came out perfect and the rub with the sauce was amazing. The rub got a little bit spicier after sitting in the fridge for a bit, which I loved.

Katie: The pork chops turned out great with Potter's BBQ sauce. The sauce did get spicier with time, but it was still delicious.
