True. I love breakfast foods (eggs especially), but lol. I feel like I should have had ONE meal that wasn't eggs or toasted things. (I had a bagel and coca for a slight breakfast, lunch/brunch of fried eggs, waffles, toast and fried bologna with OJ, and dinner of chocolate chip pancakes, another egg and more OJ.

Sorry for the late reply..I got to practicing the recipe for my practical (that I got a 95% on!) and kinda forgot about posting here..eep.
Weeeell...kale's not really one of those veggies that are that versatile. Though it's bitter flavor is supposed to go well with richer meats such as game, pork or ham. It's usually boiled, stuffed or used in soups.
If kale is labled "savoy" it's edible but best used for decoration.

As for the roasted red pepper chicken recipe...here it is! All my own personal notations will be in the parenthesis. I've made this dish twice now and discovered that the recipe's measurements don't give you much in the way of the sauce.

1 tablespoon olive oil (use a little more though..the recipe kinda skimps)
2- 6 oz. skinless/boneless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper to taste
flour-used for dredging
1/2 oz onion-medium dice
1 garlic clove-medium dice
1 fl. oz white wine (go ahead and use a full 1/4 cup though)
2 fl. oz chicken stock
1/4 pound roma tomato concasse (I can tell you how to do this if you need it!)
1/2 red bell pepper-roasted, seeded medium dice
1 oz mushrooms sliced. (if you hate mushrooms don't bother since this is garnish)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 fl. oz heavy cream (go ahead and bump it up to a 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon green onions -sliced (garnish)


Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and dredge them in the flour. Sear the breasts in the hot oil (use medium heat and cook them slower). Remove the chicken from the saute pan and hold on a plate in a warm spot.

Add the onions and garlic to the hot oil and saute for 2 minutes (protip:saute onions for a minute and THEN add garlic for the last minute..your sauce will come out a prettier color!) Deglaze with the white wine and then add the chicken stock, tomato concasse and bell pepper. Bring to a simmer and reduce the liquid by half. (cook it til the liquid goes down)

In a separate pan, saute the mushrooms in the butter and keep warm. (skip it if you hate mushrooms)

Warm the cream slightly and add it to the sauce. Simmer the sauce until it starts to thicken. Return the chicken breasts and the juices accumulated on the plate (there won't be much) to the pan and simmer until the chicken is done. (about 2 min). Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
Serve garnished with the mushrooms and green onions.

Reccomended side dishes: Rice pilaf and broccoli.

I've been working on trying to eat more vegetarian foods. Last week, I made my first tofu scramble and it was so good that I could eat it everyday. Just yesterday I made a blackberry cobbler and can not waittt until I can gulp that down. It smells soo good.

I need to get off of my ass and do the dishes, because tonight I'm making spaghetti bolognese. Yum. :I I make twice as much as I need, so that I can freeze half to make lasagne another night.

I have rose water in the cupboard glaring at me every time I open it. <:I I need to make rose cupcakes.

I haven't tried it in a soup yet, so there may be hope. The chicken dish sounds yummy! Hope the exam when well.

I think it might be good in a soup kinda like wedding soup or a veggie/beef stew! The chicken dish is actually pretty good! The creamy pepper sauce is awesome and I think I might end up putting it into my recipe rotation..lol
My exams went great! Got a 95% on the practical and a 90% on the final. I've pretty much sealed the deal at having an A in the class! ^_^

I also have a mean spaghetti bolonese, and boy oh boy does it make regular spaghetti pretty much laughable. The main ingredient I use to give the ground beef some kick is rich red wine. ^ ^

On another note, I was raised eating poor man's food. 3 years of it in fact. Some nights we had peanut butter and syrup sandwiches. In present day, I'm now part of Middle Class America and yet I can't stop eating peanut butter and syrup sandwiches! I'm hooked!
