I was nervous about making these stuffed shells because I’ve never had stuffed shells without having marinara sauce on top and I don’t think Mike has ever had stuffed shells. Luckily, we both LOVED this dinner! Mike couldn’t stop talking about how much he enjoyed it and I really liked it too. We both brought our leftovers to work for lunch the next day. I was happy that Pinterest allowed me to find such a delicious recipe! I really liked the Sage Brown Butter Sauce! It tastes just like the sauce on the Sweet Potato Gnocchi from Trader Joe’s. Have you ever made a recipe from Pinterest?
So that was the recipe that I wanted to share, now I’ll get back to the weekend. On Friday night after work, I went to Melissa and my mom’s house to hang out. We decided to take out Chinese food from a place that we used to take food out from when we were younger. I don’t know why we stopped taking food out from there. It’s fantastic!
Chicken with Mixed Vegetables
After dinner, Melissa and I went to Starbucks to get some coffee. We spent the rest of the night relaxing, watching tv and playing with Oliver. I had a lot of fun just spending time over there.
On Saturday, I lounged around the house for a while. I was actually able to sleep in. I was surprised about that. Mike and I ran some errands in the afternoon and then Courtney came over to hang out for a while. When she left, we decided to grab dinner at Bertucci’s. I didn’t bother taking pictures. I got Chicken Marsala with roasted potatoes. It was yummy but my stomach ended up killing me the rest of the evening.
We spent the rest of the night having a Breaking Amish marathon. I cannot believe we went through the entire season in the course of a few days. The finale was last night which I think we are going to watch tonight because we dvred it. It’s crazy how quickly you can get through some of these tv series when you fast forward commercials. I love it.
Sunday, I was planning on sleeping in but of course the neighbors upstairs had other plans in store. They were SO obnoxiously loud that I ended up getting up around 7 am. I wanted to sleep in later especially since I get up every day at 5 am. I could use the extra sleep. I was so annoyed! Then to make matters worse they broke glass all over the driveway which we all share and never bothered to sweep it up. So nice of them. Now I’m trying to make sure that I avoid stepping on glass. So irritating!
Anyway, we went to the supermarket and then I spent the rest of the day relaxing because my stomach once again was not feeling good. I was glad to just sit and relax. Sometimes that is just what you need to do. For dinner, we decided to make Shepard’s Pie with ground turkey.

It’s such a comforting dish! We spent the rest of the night watching the Eagles lose once again, watching the Amazing Race and Revenge. Now here we are. I am off from work tomorrow because I have to go back to the doctor to get the biopsy results. I’m hoping some progress can be made tomorrow.
Have a great Monday!
