I was up at 4am to announce a corporate race at 545. I then had plans to go to the chiropractor, get my massage therapy done, and workout.
My body had other opinions. By the time I finished work I was hurting. My hip had been bugging me since Saturday and the rest of my spine had slowly worked its way out of alignment. My chiropractor told me that my hip was basically locked out of position. Ouch. He put me back together like the tin man and I settled into my massage. Massages make me feel better, but they also release lots of toxins.
After all that I decided that it would be best for my and my body to rest and heal. I NEVER skip workouts, but today I did. I'm not thrilled about it, but I had to listen to my body. My cranky, achy, crooked body. But tomorrow...Mr. Gym...I've got your number!
Now onto the dinner duo. The last two nights we have had delicious, new-to-us dinners that came together very fast. Fast, easy, healthy...I'm sold!
Sunday night I made baked chicken using Kraft's new Fresh Take coating mix. Using my coupon magic, I scored 4 packs of these totally free! #winning!
We used the rosemary flavor. I cut the chicken in half to make in thinner, coated it in egg white, then the bread/cheese mix, and into a 375 oven for 28 minutes.
I think I cooked it a few minutes too long. I'm always so afraid of under cooked chicken. This one was over, but still tasted great.
We served it with roasted red potatoes (Kyle's fave), asparagu, and a tomato with balsamic vinegar.
The surprising part was that the chicken was really good leftover the next day. I typically hate re-heated chicken but I liked this. #doublewinning
Last night's dinner was another Monday salad! Gosh- we're hard to predict!
Kyle created the concept after our balsamic tomatoes last night. Into the mix went:
- Rotisserie chicken
- Diced tomatoes
- Part-skin Mozzarella cheese
- Fresh basil
- Balsamic vinegar
- Salt and pepper
|Dinner with a side of Easter candle.|
It was shockingly good and pretty healthy, because we didn't use any oil as our dressing. I had mine with a side of sauteed spinach....and a massive amount of hummus chips. Good salad. Not very filling.
I'm going to do some updating to the recipes page today too.
What's the last, delicious "new-to-you" dinner you made?
Love and acid,Carissa & Kyle
