Did somebody call me moody?

Sometimes, I wonder if I'm just being "moody" or if people really are a bunch of fucking asshole cunt mother fuckers.
Wait.
I think I'm moody for sure.

Today, I was really happy to be working from home. That way, I could yell out "WHY ME???" occasionally. This, in between trying to translate something like Klingon (IT people speak it) into 5th-grade English and stubbing my broke-ass toe on the stairs, coming up after a bathroom break.

Work is really difficult for me right now. More so than usual since I'm working with a bunch of new people and I'm doing it remotely for several weeks.

On the bright side, ... ?

Oh wait. On the bright side, I'm having a little dinner thing at my house on Thursday evening to introduce 2 of my friends- to each other. So that maybe they can leave my place and fall in love and live happily ever after. Or, at least get laid a few times.

Either way, I'm stuffing some chickens with bacon and giving their love connection a chance to grow. Is that gross? That sounds kind of awkward. I don't expect their love to grow IN the chickens...

Watch out for stairs, 'cause they'll really get ya. It's part of the steps they take to transcend to elevator.

This post got disturbing very quickly. Are the chickens loves supposed to grow?

NWO, When I write poetry, I want to be sure that my feelings are clearly expressed. I think I did a really good job there.

Rassles, Stairs transcend to elevators??? Is the escalator the interim- like... oh crap. what's that place where Catholics go when they die? You know. Shit.

Sista, I'm glad we can agree on the basics.

OG, I don't even know, man. I can't believe I would even let that idea get out into the universe.

... what the hell is that place called- between heaven and hell? The waiting room??? arrrrgh!!!

Can you share the bacon and chicken recipe by any chance?

The Ambiguous Blob said...

Suze, I guess it was delicious. I think chicken is gross though. (I'm vegetarian) Blech.

external, you said the magic word- bring yourself and your wine over for dinner anytime.

GB, it happens. I visited the doc on this day and they took my blood pressure- it was through the effing roof. The nurse was like- what happened? I told her I was pissed at the world. It shows. Ahhh. All better now.

Scotty, you do math GOOD.

Meems, Isn't he real old? Also, I WANT to be in SF right now.

TC, Here it is, for your cooking pleasure- I used much more bacon than it called for and it was a mega hit.

Yield
4 servings

Ingredients
2 bacon slices, diced
1/2 cup peeled, chopped Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup dried cranberries, divided
1 tablespoon fine, dry breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons apple brandy or apple juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Preparation
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove bacon, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet.
Sauté chopped apple in reserved drippings over medium-high heat 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in bacon, 1/4 cup cranberries, and next 3 ingredients.
Cut a 3 1/2-inch-long horizontal slit through the thickest portion of each chicken breast, cutting to, but not through, other side, forming a pocket. Stuff apple mixture evenly into each pocket. Wipe skillet clean.
Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken, and keep warm.
Add remaining 1/4 cup cranberries, apple juice, apple brandy, and salt to skillet. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water until smooth; stir into juice mixture, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thickened. Spoon over chicken, and sprinkle with pecans and parsley.
