About yesterday’s eats……I’d like to plead the fifth.
But…..I can’t keep my mouth shut, so I’ll tell you all about it.
It all started so innocently too. I had sent my “coach” a text about what an awesome day it was going to be, and how great I was going to eat, and how hard I was going to workout and how awesome I was. True story. That was my text to her.
I worked at The Food Truck, went to my mom’s in the afternoon to take her birthday present to her and ran a couple of errands. Now it was about 4:00 pm. Mike had called late in the afternoon to let me know he was going to golf, and for some reason, I got all excited about a 4:00 pm shower, P.J.’s and a Movie! So I sat down (still dirty from working at the Food Truck) and looked through the new movies to see if there was some kinda “Chick Flick” that looked good. I saw a movie called “Touch Feely” with Ellen Paige (I LOVE her), so I watched the trailer and was hooked. It was exactly the kind of movie I was in the mood for. I started it just to get a vibe on the mood of the movie before I took my shower. Then I couldn’t walk away. Then, for some reason, it seemed like I should sip on a glass of wine with my “Chick Flick” and my dirty clothes. I really enjoyed the movie. It was all deep and emotional and a little twisted, and two glasses of wine turned into three. Oh, wait. One glass innocently turned into two, THEN two turned into three. Then, the movie was over and there I sat, still in my dirty clothes, on the couch, relaxed as ever and in the BEST mood! Not that I was in any kind of a bad mood to start with. I was having an awesome day, but a movie and a bunch of wine was about as opposite from a hard core workout and a high protein diet as I could get!
Then I saw my neighbors out on their deck with a glass of wine, so I invited myself over to finish off my bottle!! I KNOW!!! What the……?????? Then Mike came home and he joined us, and we just had the best time!!! I never ate dinner and I never took a picture of anything to send to my coach, whom I have NOT heard from yet today. I have been sending her a picture of everything that goes into my mouth for about three weeks now. Sometimes I take the picture, but forget to send it to her. I am guessing at this point, she knows I screwed something up and is letting me confess to her on my own time. She’s VERY patient with me like that.
Anyhow, after going to the neighbors, I think I made some popcorn, and I KNOW I woke up with a headache, but I DID MAKE CHICKEN!!!!
This is a recipe I took off of a Parmesan Cheese Container a LONG time ago! Its super easy (YOU CAN EVEN MAKE IT AFTER THREE GLASSES OF WINE, BUT NOT ACTUALLY RECOMMENDED!) and tasty! I literally taped the label into my cookbook years ago.
I like to eat this…….
1. Chopped up into bite size pieces on a Caesar Salad.
2. Over a bed of Whole Wheat pasta with Marinara Sauce
3. Along side a big serving of fresh green beans.
If you are looking for a good Kid Friendly recipe, I almost guarantee the kiddos will love these dipped in marinara sauce!
