I’m an Adult!!!

But wait a minute Kelly, you’re 22.  Haven’t you been an adult for four years now?  Why yes, yes I have.  But today marks a very important day….

I have cooked myself dinner…and it turned out delicious!!!!


What is that?  My dinner, of course!

And, in case you were wondering, it was so very easy to make.  I just took time-honoured Blake family secrets (marinating chicken in Italian dressing) and experimental ingenuity (adding a tomato and some onion).   Then I cooked it down and put it on top of some rice.  All in all a successful meal.

Chicken, Tomato, and Onion Dish

  • 2 chicken tenders
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1/4 of an onion
  • Italian dressing

Marinate the chicken in the Italian dressing (the longer the better).  Chop the tomato and onion and start cooking in a skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil (or oil of your choice).  Add chicken and dressing, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through.  Put over rice or enjoy on its own.

See Mom, I am taking care of myself.

Last week my contract for summer theatre ended.  We had a wonderful run and I’m very glad I worked it.  On that note, working summer theatre and being in one of the shows is downright suicide and will probably not be happening again next summer, haha.  One or the other for me please.  I was very lucky to work with Bekah, Jason, and Linda; we made a wondrous team!

Now I get to focus on officially moving in to my new apartment, oh the joys of unpacking…not.  But it will be quite fun to be able to arrange everything just how I like it and clean when I want to (not as often as I should probably).  I’m also looking forward to more quality friend time with my new roommates, Katie and Sean.

So far in the week I’ve been unemployed I have started my ridiculous pile of mending/re-fashioning and drank copious amounts of tea…in the next week or so I plan on going home and helping my Mom weed the six billion bean plants as well as the rest of the garden.  The good thing is that I know she’ll fry squash for me the right way when I’m home, nothing like my Mom’s cooking!

This is a very condensed version of my summer so far, and I’m going to go back and flesh out the details in the next few posts so be on the lookout.

Keep calm and duck on.
