Happy National Running Day! It was fun to have an entire day where people tweeted, blogged and posted on facebook about running. I am partial however. ;) My day started out with a cool five miler around the neighborhood.
I think I was still half asleep for the first 15 minutes and my pace was a bit slower for the effort I was putting in. I think I'm in a bit of a running lull, but I suspect that will turn around soon. It better...
Anyway, it's been a while since I posted much about my eats, so I thought it would be fun to talk about a few good dinners I've made recently.
This salad was great because the flavor came from the chicken that I marinated in BBQ sauce and then grilled on the George Foreman. Love how easy the GF makes things.
Sometimes I worry that a salad won't be enough food for the manfriend, but give him some sweets or chocolate milk afterward and he's good to go!
Tonight, I made a spin on our usual pasta by baking a few pieces of chicken with herbs de Provence and a little olive oil, salt and cracked pepper on top.
While the chicken was cooling, I grilled up some red onion and zucchini with more herbs de Provence. After veggies were tender, I added half a jar of tomato basil marinara from Trader Joe's.
Finally, I threw everything in our bowls and added some fresh grated parmesan on top! Let's just call it a pasta mess.
And now, I'll leave you with this lovely picture I somehow left out of my last post from our pole dancing class.
Yup, it's a winner. You could pretty much say I'm an expert.
Have you whipped up any winning meals lately? How did you celebrate National Running Day?
