I think I'm becoming a better cook

I don't know if I'm actually becoming a better cook, or if it just tastes better now that there aren't many other options.

McDonald's is 150 miles from here, but I had the closest equivalent to the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal for lunch the other day:

Oatmeal with craisens, apples, and maple syrup.  Yummy!

And I think that I found a good option for making Chinese food:

It comes with crunchy stuff to coat your meat of choice, and a sauce packet.  I cut up onion, pepper, and carrots, sauteed, and added the sauce packet to them, and I made rice. It had a good flavor, but I wished there was more sauce with it.  But it sure looked like real Chinese takeout:

And tonight for dinner I grabbed the leftover chicken from that dish, leftover baked garlic fries, some onion, and the rest of the sharp cheddar cheese, and made this awesome dinner for myself:

Don't worry about Jeff though, he had left over pasta salad and made himself some tuna salad with saltines.  So he didn't go hungry...   :-)

And some big news!  Our dining options have DOUBLED!  That's right, another restaurant opened, so now we have a choice of 2 places to go!  The Fireweed has pizza, sandwiches, appetizers, burgers, and Tok Thai is a buffet.  Imagine - 2 restaurants!  We are living the good life out here...
