Day 9

Thursday, December 9, 2010
What one thing are you often tempted to lie about? When do you think it's okay to lie?

I'm often tempted to lie about...jeez, let's many things....

I know! The amount of television I actually watch. It's really kinda pathetic. I have a line up for every single night of the week. It's so very sad. I wish I had a life. Even on the nights that I miss my shows, I always watch them the next day online.

When do I think it's okay to lie? Hmmm....when it's harmless, I guess. "No, I don't mind doing that for you." "Yes, that IS the correct weight on my driver's license." "No, those pants don't make your butt look big." "Yes, I would LOVE to try your new recipe." You get the idea.

I didn't particularly like today's prompt. I hope tomorrow's is better. I wish you could see the prompts ahead of time. I could get a couple of posts finished ahead of time, plus give the answers a little more thought.

In the meantime, let me share the impromptu little dish I whipped together for dinner last night. Last week, I bought a big honkin' pack of chicken breasts at Sam's Club. But, because I had such a busy, busy weekend, I never did anything with it. So, when I came home from work on Monday, I decided I'd better either cook it or freeze it. I decided to cook it. I seasoned it and threw it all in my crockpot, and let it cook low and slow overnight. In the morning, I took it out of the crockpot, and put it in the fridge.

Last night, I was trying to think of what I could do with all this chicken, and decided to make a ring. Pampered Chef has a few of these "ring" recipes. Over the years, I've adapted several of the 'original' recipes to come up with some new ones. Yesterday, I shredded up a few breasts, put it in the dough, then sprinkled sharp cheddar over it. I really wanted to mix in some Sweet Baby Ray's (cuz I could drink that shit with a straw!) but I thought Stud didn't like it. I found out after I took it out of the oven that he DOES like it, so decided to put a little over the top. We both laughed because it made our dinner look like a dessert!

I couldn't get a decent picture of the inside (probably cuz I have a junky little camera!) so this'll have to do.
It would have been so much yummier if I had mixed the filling with some Sweet Baby Ray's. Next time...

So if I say I really like your recipe, will you think I am lying?
Watching TV is so not pathetic. Cause you and I are NOT pathetic.

I really don't watch TV so that wouldn't be a lie...but I could think of others! I have to fib a lot to the, "Ohhhh I really like the bracelet!" -All made of paper and tape :)

OMG you don't see the prompts! well good for you, I couldn't handle the pressure. It would feel too much like a quiz in school.
I've been reading your other posts too. I like that you specify "financial stability" and not "wealth." I would have been specifying "filthy richness!"...don't care if it's not a word!

I make that with shredded chicken, onion, celery, cheese, and cream cheese. To die for!
