Tony update: We don’t see his doctor until NEXT Tuesday, so the waiting game continues. Thank you though for all your thoughts and prayers coming our way – we appreciate it!
I spent about an hour and a half Sunday meal prepping for the week. It was nice to wake up this morning already knowing that my food is prepared and ready to go. There I have cooked chicken breast, cooked pork, chopped romaine, red cabbage, cucumbers, carrots and a bean mix of kidney, chick pea and black beans. Huge ass salads are going to be the theme this week!
I bought these kabobs at my store – this one is 1/2 a pound so it’s enough for two salads. I love the Greek seasoning.
I knew I wanted to make a breakfast that would work all week. I thought quiche, but decided I wanted to make breakfast muffins. I love Pillsbury Grands. They are not paying me to say that, nor did they give me and free product (but if they wanted to I wouldn’t say no!) They had a new kind that I hadn’t seen before called Butter Tastin.
I buy my cheese ends at the deli. I know I’ve talked about this before, but ask your deli the next time if they have any cheese ends – you never know what you are going to get, and you can either put it in the food processor for mixed shredded cheese, or just chop it up like I did – super cheap way to get cheese!
The biscuits were perfectly cooked – you could taste every buttery layer of the biscuit, and the filing almost tasted quiche like.
When I got to work I just put them in my office toaster on the broil setting at 400 degrees for about 5-6 minutes. Okay, maybe it was a tad longer than that, I put them in the toaster oven and then went back to my desk to work on something and all of a sudden I was like “crap, my muffins!” Whew, saved in the nick of time. These were delicious and I think would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch because you can make them all at the same time. I actually got busy and ate the second one when it was almost room temperature and it was just as tasty.
I went to the gym for the first time in over 8 days! It was rough getting started, but not too bad. I ran/walked (okay mostly walked!) 2.5 miles in 35 minutes.
And when I got back to my desk, just put my salad together, tossed in 2 tablespoons of Annie’s goddess dressing. This took me nearly 30 minutes to eat! The only think I think its missing is a little texture, so next time I’ll bring some nuts and maybe some cheese for the topping.
Later in the afternoon, I got another snapchat from my step-son – look at how cute Cinnamon Bun looks in his Bears hat!
Since it was Cinco de Mayo, of course I would have Mexican food for dinner. I bought some marinated flank steak at my grocery store – just .25 of a pound since it was just for me – and it’s super spicy – you can see the crushed red pepper flakes in the marinade a mile away! I cooked the steak, then divided it between 3 corn tortillas, added 1/2 ounce of cheese to each on and Pam fried them in a non-stick skillet. Then added broccoli slaw and I mixed a chipotle pepper with some Mexican creama and topped it off with that. Tony? He had mashed potatoes.
We watched the Sox/Cubs game last night. I stepped away to talk to Hannah for 35 minutes and when I came back the game was tied 1-1. It ended up going 12 innings but luckily the White Sox won. Sorry to Kitch’s Dad, but the White Sox are way better.
I actually will not be having a huge ass salad today. We are taking the new secretary out to eat – Wok N Fire! Pretty sure I’ll get the tofu red curry dish – I seem to get it every time I go there!
I got all my steps in and then some yesterday – nice!
Alright, time to jump in the shower – make it a great day!
