No work tomorrow!!! Although we will have to make up the day in June, I’m hoping my workload will be a bit lighter on the last day of school and maybe I won’t need to go…
The nice thing about a snow day is that it kinda of forces you to relax because I’m guessing that not a whole lot will be open. I’m planning to sleep in, finish writing a report, get a decent work-out in (my gym time has been half-assed lately), and possibly grab a glass of wine with a friend or see a movie.
And, because I didn’t know about the snow day until this evening I still managed to be pretty productive this afternoon (unlike Friday afternoons). I started some serious job application prep work (aka, resume, cover letter, and narrowing down districts I want to apply to), cycled for 35 minutes, and cooked a fun dinner with Matt.
Matt’s parents gave us Food & Wine’s best recipes from 2010 for Christmas and I picked out a recipe for roasted chicken with tangerines. Of course, I failed to notice that the recipe required a whole chicken in my rush to make the grocery list on Saturday, and bought some breast tenders instead. I had to change the portions in the recipe, so I ended up improvising a bit with this one.
But first, I popped a bottle of wine! This is a local pinot gris from Coastal Vineyards that my parents bought us on our winery visit in June. It tasted like summer!
To prepare the chicken, I first drizzled it with olive oil and threw some tangerine chunks into the pan. I then topped it with a sauce made with the juice of a tangerine, garlic, rosemary, and white wine. It baked for about ten minutes, I added a little chicken stock, and baked it for 10 or so more.
Served with rice + more wine!
