We are watching the Leaf game and Chris Pronger of the Philidelphia Flyers just got hit in the face with a hockey stick by Mikhail Grabovski {one of my favorite Leafs}. Now no one wants to get hit in the face with a hockey stick...especially when it's one of the best players on the opposing team {do you see how fast those pucks go, btw??} BUT...Chris Pronger was SCREAMING as he got off the ice. This was was was just plain scary. The arena was so one knew what was going on. Especially since you have to figure it out by watching the replay. 
I just hope Pronger is okay. I know Grabovski didn't do it on purpose {obviously} but it was just a tad heart-wrenching...

I am sitting here with my kittycat, boyfriend, glass of wine and Leaf game...window open, cold air coming in, brand new bedroom set just calling my name. 
Which I should probably post a picture show you all how gorgeous our place is having cleaning all the crap out from it. Lol. 
I had a great weekend, it just went by so was hilarious too...lots of laughing. I love laughter-filled days...there was a boyfriend's fambam get together where I did an amazing impression of Drita from Mob Wives that had everyone in completely stitches...or so I thought, there were ample amounts of alcohol involved.
Saturday was super freakin' lazy. In bed for most of the day, watching Mob Wives and other shows, boyfriend & chichi napped, then there was some PS3 and Leaf game...where we won...against the Habs. ;) Sister won't like that one. Lol.
Sunday was even more laziness...lots of PS3...lots of eating...lots of cat and boyfriend cuddling together {even though he won't admit it, lol!}. 

I just want to keep you all posted that the kitty is doing so much better. I stopped his medicine and he is eating on his own which is amazing! He is still super skinny but he seems to be so much better. 

Anyways - I shall post a recipe right now. 
Soon I shall be going to bed. ;) 

Bon Appetit!

Roasted Salmon with White-Wine Sauce
Salmon is versatile, ultra heart-healthy superfood, and its preparation possibilities are endless. Here, a skinless roasted fillet creates a simple but swanky dinner when paired with steamed potatoes with thyme and sauteed mixed mushrooms. 
Everyday Food, January/February 2008

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 4

1 large skinless salmon fillet {1-1/2 pounds}
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Preheat over to 450 degrees. Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt. Roast until opaque throughout, about 15 minutes. 

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium. Add flour, and cook, whisking, 1 minute. Add wine, and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in chives; season with salt and pepper. With a form, gently break salmon into large chunks, and serve topped with white-wine sauce. 

Simple and delicious. 
Not to mention healthy. 
Hope everyone is having a great Monday night. I am ready to hit the hay and forget about this nauseous filled Monday too and have a fabulous Tuesday. :)
