8X8 oil on canvas

Remember that I’m painting about my spring break?  This is stop #2.  After Spending a couple of days in Tahoe at Squaw Valley we went on to Ukiah to visit my family.  I was born and raised in Ukiah (Northern California) and my parents and youngest sister still live there.  Ukiah and the area surrounding from the Napa Valley to the coast is truly breathtaking.

Three cheeses baked ziti


Tonight I made three cheese baked ziti, it was very nice but very filling. I couldn’t get ziti pasta so had to make do with rigatoni. The cheeses were provolone, mozzarella and parmesan. It also had mince and spicy italian sausage along with onions and a homemade pasta sauce. It kinda reminded me of lasagne.

It was a very italian vibe today as I made myself spagetti with tomato & basil pasta sauce with italian sausage for lunch. A very large portion as I missed having my weetabix today haha


Have a great day everyone 🙂

Herbed chicken w/provolone cheese & hasselback potatoes

Okay, so here is herbed chicken with parmesan and provolone cheese accompanied by broccoli and hasselback potatoes. It was very filling but I did thoroughly enjoy it especially with sour cream.

It was quite a lot of work though with the breadcrumbs and preperation time, also the breadcrumbs didn’t stick to the chicken too well.

I know I need a new cooking tray and a frying pan as well.
