...this will be mine. I MUST win the lottery. Here's the thing, I've wanted this couch since I bought my place; in fact, I bought my place visualizing this couch in my living room. Unfortunately, all of my furniture COMBINED (including my current beeeeiiiige sectional) wasn't as much as this sofa. COMBINED, people. I couldn't justify it then, and I just recently started to justify it when....bam! my AC unit went out on the last 100+ day last September (there were at least 70 of them). Considering my AC unit is a year younger than me (and it made it through the hottest summer ever), I can't hate. But that'll be a solid $5K this year.
And let's not forget that I also have a penchant for eating delicious food, drinking, shopping, travelling....
I need to go find my big girl panties now....must have left them in my beeeeiiiige couch. *throws temper tantrum*

I saw this and instantly got chills. 75 recipes?! Martha, you're ooc!
Seriously though, I normally don't do new year's resolutions, however, I decided this year that I want to cook....I want to cook just one meal a month. Sounds pathetic, right? Well, I have to keep it obtainable, guys. Note, I did say a meal though; I'm not talking just your everyday spaghetti friends, oh no, I'm talking some sides too. Mmmmhmmm. This is not single girl territory. Anyway, that's what led me to that gangsta Martha's site. For the past, oh, say 3 or 4 years, I've really wanted to make what I call "fancy" macaroni, as in 4 cheese baked macaroni. With a panko crust (damn what the instructions say, I will have my panko!).
Anyway, tonight's the night. Ideas on what to serve it with? Chicken? (I really dislike chicken, btw. Just saying the word makes my face do a solid : |. As much excitement as I feel about cheese, I feel the opposite towards chicken. I mean, really, how boring is chicken?)
