Day 210 - Grilled Turkey Legs and Mashed Potatoes

Took the day off, slept the whole day and still feeling not so good. Having a long weekend which is totally screwed :( For dinner, my hubby volunteered to cook. Before starting his cooking adventure, he went for a shopping and came home with some huge turkey legs. I sighed and cuddled under the blanket while he grilled. He also wanted to make mashed potatoes, I had to help him a bit to make it. Turkey legs wasn’t that tasty as chicken legs, it wasn’t that bad either so without much complaints we ate it.

Day 24- Baked Chicken and Mashed potatoes topped with Gravy

Day 24- Baked Chicken and Mashed potatoes topped with Gravy

Freezing weather was the talk of the day. In the evening when it started snowing I felt much better and I never seem to get tired of watching snow showers. Had to work late so hubby was in charge of tonight’s dinner. As expected he did make mashed potatoes this time as well. My husband and mashed potatoes are inseparable! He baked the chicken breast after marinating it with a citrus herb sauce. I should admit that my hubby is becoming an expert at making mashed potatoes. This time he enhanced the flavor by adding caramelized onions and garlic to the potatoes. He wanted to make this dinner complete with gravy, so I gave the final touches and whipped up a quick aromatic gravy. Dinner was YUM!
