The weather is now hot and miserable.

Dad has been released with a stint, a scrip for blood thinners, and lifestyle changes prescribed. He's back on the boat, and remains as ever the luckiest sonofabitch I know.

I made Budget Bytes Southwest Chicken Skillet for dinner, and it took 5 minutes active time + 40 minuites waiting ... basically the ideal hot day post-work meal. I used Mi Costenita menudo seasoning because that was the mixed chili style packet of seasoning my grocery store had for cheap - $1.19 for an ounce. (also apparently they are a small Chicago-local business.)

The skillet is VERY tasty overall - highly recommend. I'll be freezing 2-3 servings for lunches later, and fridging a serving or two to eat soon.

Make it vegetarian by swapping the chicken for another can of beans (pinto to kidney) or with cubed baked tofu, tempeh, or seitan.

(The best part of making shredded chicken by poaching chicken is that I get broth as a byproduct).

I want it to be the weekend so I can take a nap. As is, it'll be dishes, a murder show, and sleep for me.
