for dinner tonight:

i had
a little cucumber,
some shiitake mushrooms cooked in some butter, with crumbled goat cheese on top,
some chicken marinated in recipe from a yogurt container
some toast from a rosemary loaf with apricot jam, butter, and goat cheese on top
a blood orange.

and that was delicious.

sometimes i really love food.
and it doesn't require much effort.

chicken marinated in:
1 cup yogurt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 tablespoon sage (i apparently don't have rosemary or thyme. but i had sage, so i gave it a try.)
1 teaspoon salt (it asked for a tablespoon but in the end that is really unnecessary)
1 teaspoon pepper

Gingerbread cookies on Christmas Day

I used this recipe:

I found that if you roll them extra thick, like a thick 1/4 inch, and bake them 10 minutes instead of 12, then they turn out wonderfully soft, but of course that was only on the third set that i figured that out. Still, everything is tasty with enough frosting...
