Sweet & Sour Monday

 So this thing is currently scaring Evie. It's a rack that Erik can dress with his hockey stuff to air it out. This has been living in his friends garage for five years but now it's in our house. A)It reeks like no other. I think hockey smell is something so pungent but unique in scent. B)Evie saw it, creeped up to it, and barked! haha. She didn't know what it was.

It's currently in "Erik's room" airing out with the door shut. Peuwey!

Tonight I made a yummy dinner we both enjoyed - Sweet & Sour Chicken. I've made a version of this in the past but had to coat & fry the chicken, which I did not do with this recipe. In this recipe, I also replaced the pork with chicken.

 Thanks to Safeway's 30% off wine sale, I got to have a glass of the best Chardonnay that ever lived!


In other news, it was back to being "cold" here today--Gray and in the upper 50's. It is supposed to rain this week, which is good because I read that we are in the worst drought on record! So crazy!!
