Success and Failure

So Monday was a mixture of success and failure.

First success was my lunch. I brought both chicken and egg salad in the same container and they got a little mixed. I tried it and it was good so I decided to mix it all together and OMG fantasticness!

Next success was those chicken wings. She was not kidding when she named them the BEST EVER. If you remember I made the marinade in the freezer bag with the chicken and let them sit all night. Yesterday I covered a pan with foil and placed the chicken wings on the pan without getting them too close then I baked them for about 25 mins at 425.

Now for the first failure that I don’t even have a picture of 😦 I tried making eggplant fries to have with my chicken wings. It sounded like a good alternative and the pictures look amazing. But I got distracted and burned them to a crisp and didn’t feel like trying again just yet. Luckily I have some eggplant leftover, so if it stays fresh I will try again.

I also baked my pizza bites. I took the dough out of the fridge and shaped it into balls. The dough was super sticky so I used extra tapioca flour to help when molding. I placed 2 slices of pepperoni in each ball, put a little olive oil on top and sprinkled with garlic salt. I baked them at 350 for like 30 mins. I tried eating them today and I have to admit I did not like them and actual threw them away. I was kinda sad but I still did not give into the pizza  at the party.

I did have  a tiny piece of cake and by tiny I mean tiny! I even took pictures to prove it and I didn’t eat the frosting.

It was so good! I had to exhibit some serious self control to not eat more!!

On a lighter note I am planning on starting my own party planning business and helped my mom by creating some decorations.
