dinner and a movie

Sometimes the best things in life are as simple as a weekend evening eating baked chicken and watching a movie with your family.

Baked chicken, instant netflix, and hot chocolate are all ingredients for a lovely night.

I know a lot of my friends are busy going out on the weekends, but lately we have been enjoying the company of our own living room.  Losers we may be, but we don’t care!

This weekend while I got busy in the kitchen Taylor built a roaring fire and browsed netflix for a fun movie.  Once dinner was ready we plopped down in front of the tv (we rarely eat in front of the tv so this was a nice treat) And enjoyed a delicious meal with a fun movie.

Baked chicken thighs, butternut squash puree, and a spinach salad.  A complete and healthy meal.

With a glass of red wine of course.  It was date night after all!

The movie we watched was actually a tv series.  We started the show Breaking Bad and now we can’t get enough of it.  We watched 3 episodes in one sitting (they are an hour each) and can’t wait to watch more.

Dessert was a unpictured cup of hot coco.  The perfect evening.

Off to bed early tonight.  I am running the Boston Marathon this April and training has started.  Long run in the morning before a day in the apple orchard.  Brrrrrr it’s going to be cold out there!

Have a great night!

    The fact of the matter is that you guys probably lead a deeper and more meaning life than most people. Life is about savoring the small moments and turning them into something much larger. 🙂

    Just heard part of an interview Terry Gross was doing on NPR today and her guest was some sort of TV critic and he said that Breaking Bad was his number one choice for best TV show/series. Just goes to show you not only have great culinary taste but excellent TV carma as well. i’ll have to check this series out.
