Do this tonight

Turn off the T.V.

Play this song loudly. Put it on repeat and dance around the kitchen.

Make the following meal from Ellie Krieger. I am cooking my way through her cookbook, So Easy.

Each week, I pick one or two of her recipes and cook them on the weekends, then eat on them through out the week, and I am on number 5 right now, and she has not let me down once. At first glance, this meal appears to be heavy, and honestly, not very good for you. But, when you eat it, it is refreshing, and yummy, just like everything else she has done that I have tried.

After it was done, I held the plate in my hand, danced around the house eating with my fingers. A great night.

So grab a beer, play some tunes, and cook this ASAP.
