When the Fiance is away....

Okay, so he wasn't really away last night, but he went out for "boys night."  Boys night included miller lite, wings and the capitals game.
 
I could have joined them, but lets be realistic....  A night on the couch watching whatever I want and eating whatever I want beat out a night at the bar.
 
First, I made the most phenomenal dinner.  Seriously, it was great and it was full of mushrooms.  A veggie that the fiance will not touch.   I'd like to name it...
 
Ashley's Home Alone Mushroom Chicken and Wine Sauce
 
1. Chicken, cut up and sauteed in olive oil and garlic
2. Add onions- chopped up
3. Add a crap load of mushrooms
4. Add some white wine (A LOT)
5. Add some lemon juice (a few squirts)
6. Add a pinch of thyme
7. Add a little cornstarch and water to thicken things up
8. Serve over rigatoni
9. Sprinkle with parmesan
10. ENJOY
 
After that, I settled in for a night of T.V. and hated on several people, including Spencer Pratt (gag me and your little rat face beard) and the dreaded brown team (they are evil).

aw, what a great night! i'm going to HAVE to whip up some of that chicken dish! Hubs and I are the same when it comes to mushrooms- I love 'em, he hates 'em! Being that I'm home alone all week due to Hubs' traveling for work.. I can even steal the name! How fitting! :) Haha..

That dinner sounds yummy to me...I love me some mushrooms.

And -- I'm with you on the brown team. I liked them in the beginning, but now they are all about winning. Granted, that's all fine and dandy, but you could do it in a nicer way ya know... And -- I really hope that they DON'T win...surely Tara or Helen could whip them if they tried hard enough. But -- it may be too late b/c they were both huge to begin with. I really wanted Kristen to win...so sad that she's gone now.

Okay...off my BL soapbox. LOL!
