winner winner chicken dinner
Last night’s dinner was a new recipe. My mom found a recipe for a chicken, artichoke, and spinach casserole. You really can’t go wrong with the spinach and artichoke combo. The recipe called for heavy cream and cc, so she cut down the cals by using reduced fat cream cheese, and a mixture of half and half, and 2%. It turned out reallly yummy, and she cut up some of the beer bread to put on top. The beer bread made had a great crunch to it. On the side we had some roasted butternut squash. I’m so in love with it. I really want to try roasting some acorn squash, and some spaghetti spuash. I haven’t tried either of those yet, but they always look so good whenever anyone uses them in their recipes.
After seeing Jenna from Eat, Live, Run, talk about the free yoga podcasts that Dave Farmar had on itunes, I went to check it out. I downloaded 2 of his beginner classes, and then found links so a few other yoga podcasts… theyre all free! i think i downloaded about 10 of them, so i’ll be switching these into my schedule. Sometimes i’m not sure which poses they’re talking about, since most of them don’t have the poses to go with the podcast, so when I get really confused I jsut go back to child’s pose, or downward dog 🙂 That Dave Farmar is hilarious though. It was a great class!
Breakfast this morning was some more Vans waffles! perfect amount of sweetness to them, and they’re crusty like freshed home made waffles. Topped with some almond butter and flax and my last drops of agave… thats why theres no swirl 😦 didn’t have enough! just little droplets. Threw 2 sliced kiwis in there… delish. Costco kiwis come in these huge plastic tubs. They are always so fresh and ripe, but i have to eat them quick because i don’t want them to go bad.
So a change of plans… My bf is going to be coming here this weekend instead of me going there. I had planned to drive up with his best friends gf. It’s kind of funny actually. Him and his best friend have grown up together, and both went to my college. I met him my junior year, and his best friend had been dating this girl for a few years. Now she is from my hometown, and went to the highschool right next to me. so funny, so we drive up together a lot and its convenient to have someone else take the 5 1/2 hour drive with you. Well she was going to take me, but something happened with her car, so he just decided he was going to drive here. I’ll be going there for Valentines Day. I can’t believe that is just 2 weeks away. This month FLEW by!
Happy Friday! its superbowl weekend 🙂 anybody have any fun plans for the weekend?
