Fumes

One of the downfalls of no garage is inhaling the fumes from our office makeover. The smell of wood stain, polyurethane, and wall paint has taken over our apartment. No worries though, its a warmer kind of cold outside that allows us to open a few windows. Did I mention we had two days of snow this week? Our office is on the verge of complete. Over the last few weeks we have gone through all of Ike’s hobby materials and electronic bits. What a job! The type A in my AB personality is really happy. Here’s whats left:

-finish painting trees on the walls

-glue trim to my desk

-stain and finish Ike’s desk

-drill holes and assemble desk supports

-hang mason jar lighting

I can’t wait until its all finished! Hopefully this weekend. Onto another recipe – this time one of Isaac’s favorites: Bacon Mushroom Chicken.

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

A cooking for 2 recipe. The only thing I did different was use turkey bacon and lite mayo. The honey mustard sauce is absolutely delicious and the chicken was so moist! Isaac says its definitely one of the best things I’ve made over the last few months and possibly ever.
