thursday it is . . .

this morning it was pampering time. i took mom and we had our nails done, and i had a pedicure too. mom doesn't like pedicures so she sat with a cup of coffee and waited while i had that. then i had my eyebrows waxed. my gosh they needed to be waxed. i feel fresh and new.
i went by the market on the way home to pick up some groceries. mom was pretty tired from getting her nails done so she waited in the car and rushed through as to not make her sit too long in the car. of course after i got home i remembered all the other items on my list. oh well, i can go back after mr. roll gets home. and i can sneak into the tanning salon too. it's all good.
i love top chef. due to the fact that mr. roll likes to watch something on wednesday nights i watch top chef on thursday. i have episode 3 on right now. some of these chefs are so arrogant and then others i can't fathom how they even made it onto the show to begin with? i always try to imagine what i would make when they're given the ingredients. i imagine how i would react to the other chefs and their temperaments and attitudes. could i remain nice? i'd do better on iron chef, another favorite show that mr. roll and i like to watch together. my fantasy is be a world famous chef. sometimes when i'm cooking dinner, in my kitchen, i pretend i am speaking to a television audience. talking. joking. explaining. it's fun. back the top chef chef's creating something with potatoes.
tonights dinner is an old standby, chicken with cream of mushroom soup. remember this dish? it was a staple when i was growing up, and even when my kids were growing up. i've tried, over the years, to fancy it up a bit by adding garlic, adding sour cream, adding red wine, adding some artichoke hearts. don't get me wrong, all the additions were delicious, but chicken and cream of mushroom soup taste good standing alone. tonight it stands alone. i bought some regular white rice to have with it. i can't remember the last time i made regular white rice? tonight it is.

  1. sounds like a good homey meal, we had a crockpot full of spaghetti and meatballs, which even if it wasn't all homemade it was VERY satisfying after a much too busy evening!
