YUMMY and 21 again.......

Last night I decided to try this recipe that my friend Jessica posted a few days back on her blog. It's called Orange Rosemary Chicken. At first the ingredients that were being mixed threw me and I wasn't sure about what the glaze would taste like. But when someone posts something that includes ALL ingredients I can have (except the 2 tbls of butter which I just subbed soy butter for) I get really excited to try something new. So if you get a chance to click on her blog she is always posting fun, yummy recipes and this one for sure is a keeper. I served it with some jasmine rice and sauted up some organic veggies in olive oil. Oh ya' so making this one again. Thanks Jess! :) Now for a moment of vein bragging. I had to run to trader Joes yesterday to get the herbs and white wine I needed for this dish. I think this was like only the second time I have ever bought alcohol since I always send Dan to buy wine for anything I need. He knows what he is doing and I prefer to keep that dumb blonde look (sorry friends) for really important things like not being able to figure out where I parked my car at Target or how to get the TV to work. You know really important things. Anyways, went to Trader Joes, stood in the wine isle FOREVER trying to decided what dry white wine was. I found the most expensive and the cheapest and picked somewhere in the middle. Hey, I wonder if that is how Dan picked me? Food for thought. So as I am checking out the checker says:
Checker: I am goign to need to see your I.D
Me: I.D?
Checker: yes your drivers license.
Me: for what?
checker: the wine you bought.
Me: you want to see my I.D? seriously? because you think I look to young or are you just hitting on me? cause I am married you know.
(Ok, I didnt really say that but you gotta' watch those trader joes guys)
checker: your I.D.
Me: oh ya' my I.D. here you go. I just want to say how I love that you just carded me. I mean seriously made my day. I used to get all annoyed when I was 21 and got carded for just cutting through a casino in vegas on the way to my room. But wow! This is just great because as you can see from my I.D. I am 34. So wow! Thanks again buddy! Do you think it was the fact that I dont have any make-up on or that I am dressed in old drawstring work out pants and a sweatshirt with my hair un brushed and just in a sloppy ponytail that screams I just crawled out of bed and went to math 101? Cause if it is I am so going with this look everyday. Cause you know I have a 7 year old and 3 year old. I know can you hardly believe "I" have two kids that old? Amazing really when you think about it. What's my secret you ask? Oh gosh so funny that you should ask........................
checker: SECURITY ON ISLE 1!!!!
So now I think my photo is on the wall at Trader Joes and I may have to wear a cap and glasses to return. Something about them having to shove me through the door on my way out cause my head was so big!! He,heeee! Just kidding.

yay, I'm glad you liked it and that it turned out well for you! I loved it too and am totally going to make it again. That's funny about the wine. I kinda get excited when they check my ID too now, haha.

You crack me up. You are probably going to be carded when you are 45. You look GREAT!

That dish looks yummy! I will have to make it one night. And you look great, it should be a compliment that you got carded. Happy Friday!
