Switching Roles

Sick boy thanks you guys for all of your get well wishes!

He also thanked me for preparing a yummy dinner of BBQ pulled chicken with roasted asparagus.

While I tended to the chicken and veggies, Ryan helped out by balling a large honeydew that we enjoyed along with our meal.

The melon was deliciously sweet and juicy.

We actually switched tasks halfway through dinner preparation. Ryan pulled the remaining chicken breasts and I balled the second half of the melon. What can I say, he’s the meat man after all… and I really don’t care for cutting or pulling meat.


I’m off to hang out with Ryan and Sadie on the couch and catch up on last week’s episode of Jersey Shore.

Don’t knock it ‘til ya watch it! 😉


If you’re feeling extra snacky today, pop on over to Tina’s blog and bid on some yummy baked goods, including my flourless peanut butter cookies! All of the money raised will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Now go eat some cookies for cancer! 😉
