What I've Been Making...

Chicken Broccoli Supreme

HH loved this.  He said it was one of my best creations.  The only down side of this dish was it required a lot of different pans, which means a lot of dishes.  It made for tasty leftovers the next two days for lunch.

This was awesome!  I shared it with my co-workers.  I was worried that I didn't do the "streusel" part right, but it came out just fine.  HH said, "I don't get to have any right?"  It made me feel bad.  Who cares if there is a piece missing when I take it to work?  I cut him a piece, and he was super happy.

Rice Crispy Treats (Funfetti Style):
I made this for the kids on Friday, and it was well received.  One of them said, "It takes like cake."  It has 3/4 cup of Funfetti Cake Mix in the treat.  I didn't try them.

Knock Off Zuppa Toscana

I did add fennel seed, along with more chicken broth and heavy whipping cream.  I wanted to substitute the spinach for kale, but the grocery store didn't have it.  This soup was better than Olive Garden's version.  I'm glad I learned how to make it myself!  The girls came over for a movie tonight, and we all agreed it was great comfort food!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
I forgot to take a picture of them!  I gave these out to my co-workers as well.  I forgot to put the oil in them, so I think they will be better the next time I make them. 

One lady at work stares holes through me.  She is rude, and has no general social skills.  I sent her down a muffin via one of my students.  We have a meeting shortly after to which she brings the muffin, and proceeds to give it to another co-worker in front of me.  I'm not saying you have to love everything I send, but just put it in the trash or privately give it to another co-worker if you don't want it.  It was rude.  I'm not making another thing for her. 

The other day, the same lady was making copies.  I was waiting in line for the copier, so I asked her how her weekend was.  *Insert crickets chirping.*  She waits for OVER A MINUTE (yes, I watched the clock), before she quickly says, "Fine."  No other comment. 

HH had to go to a business meeting four hours away in the middle of nowhere.  One of the guys said he hoped to meet me at the next meeting.  I'm all about supporting my husband, but there is NO purpose for me going to this type of meeting.  He explained that I have back troubles, and long rides in the car aren't that good for me.  For a long car ride, it better to get some CITY time!!!

I haven't had a chance to click through the recipes yet, but I just had to put my two cents in about your revolting coworker. What the actual fuck is wrong with her!!?? I can NOT believe she was so rude as to do that in front of you! What a bitch!

I'm sure ALL of your other coworkers adore you as much as I do. And NOT just because you bring them tasty treats!!!!

How rude of her! I'm sorry you had to deal with that this week. :( If I were the recipient of most anything you cooked, I'd probably be begging for seconds! I hope she doesn't continue to act the way she has been.
