i went to my apartment today to gather some stuff to bring at mike’s house. i cleaned up my closet, the bedroom, the bathroom and part of the kitchen. everything is either in the living room or the kitchen. the next time i come, i will load all these stuff at the van, give jamie the groceries, clean up the place, and say bye-bye to my home for the past 6 months.
although i have always been with mike in his house, it just feels comfortable to have an apartment for myself. but now that i want to save up soem money to go back to the philippines…i need to save up. this will help me at most until may.
for dinner, i decided to cook. i saw my old campbell’s recipe book and found this recipe. it was pretty easy and i love the vegetables. i just made a few modifications. jamie doesn’t eat pork so i took one big boneless, skinless chicken breast and fried it with the porkchops. aside from the garlic, i also seasoned the chops and the chicken with ground black peppers and aroma seasoning (old bay will be ok to use too). i love vegetables, so i decided to just sprinkle it with some green beans. the dinner was terrific! i just made a tossed salad made up of spinach, raddichio, snow peas, grape tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and yellow onions with catalina salad dressing for appetizer. and for dessert? peach cobbler pie that mark brought home yesterday.

and for the night finale…me & mike went to bed and watched identity. i love this kind of psychological thriller. it will make you think and use your brains to figure out what was happening, john cusack, ray liotta and alfred molina leads the cast. it was mind boggling. i wonder if it can be true…
