I'll be the one helping you lose three-hundred pounds.

So tomorrow morning I go in for my job interview at Subway.

I really don't know what to think. I've worked fast food before, so I know how much of a hell it can be. I really hope Subway is better. With a lack of deep fryers, it looks a lot cleaner, and I don't think I would have to shoot myself should I be required to eat at work.

If Subway doesn't work out though, I applied last night to a local kitchen supply store....

Should I be worried that a kitchen supply store is my dream job?

... no. I need that pasta rolling attachment to my stand mixer, damnit.

Additionally, I've been playing Pokemon Pearl for the past month religiously. Right now, my team spans from lvl 30-50. I thought leveling them up evenly would be a nice change of pace, instead of having my traditional starter-tank. So if anyone wants to swap friend codes, I'd be very grateful.

... ok, maybe I should be worried.

Chipotle Chicken

So, as a part of my futile effort to best a Chipotle burrito, I tried playing with some chicken today. Raw Chicken Soccer wasn't so fun, but this turned out pretty good!

Burrito Chicken:

- Five chicken tenders
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- Salt and pepper :D
- 2 Chipotle peppers in adobo
- 1/2 Cup water
- 1 Tsp tomato paste

Oil a cast-iron skillet and bring it to medium heat. Salt, pepper, and chili powder your chicken tenders and brown those in your skillet. Once those are done, lay those aside and add your water to your skillet along with your (now minced) chipotles. Once that comes to a simmer, dice up your chicken and add it back to the skillet. Let the chicken simmer in your sauce for about ten minutes. Toss that in a burrito and enjoy.

So that's what I did today. Right now I want to explore casseroles, so if you have any inspirations or ideas, comments are greatly appreciated.
