“From the past until completion…”

Today was incredibly long…Mainly because we had some computer issues for most of the morning, so all the work I had to, I couldn’t. It’ll make tomorrow more interesting, at least.

I’m bound & determined that I will get my money back from the bank and I will lose my remaining weight, so I fixed a light meal for dinner. Salad–And by gods if I didn’t get Jay to eat a salad too! I was shocked when he said yes when I asked if he wanted one. I used a recipe from the June issue of Everyday Food–Grilled Chicken with Oregano & Lemon. It was delicious.

The side dish was orzo with toasted almonds, lemon juice & oregano. I also sliced up some of my French bread, which wasn’t really even necessary with the pasta, but I knew the bambino would eat it.

I couldn’t finish either portion of my chicken or pasta, and only ate one slice of bread. I did manage to have a small slice of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cake for dessert, though.

And since there were plenty of leftovers, I have lunch for the next 2 days, which is nice. I think I’ll go and pack up my lunchbox, get the coffee maker ready, then hit the hay! I’m thinking I might want to go for a walk outdoors tomorrow morning, since the weather’s supposed to be nice for the rest of the week.

Sharing is caring!

  1. Hi, Rachel. It’s looks like you’ve been a busy bee, what with all the posts, not to mention the Brookings Marathon! I will try that oatmeal-chocolate chip cake, which sounds very tempting, but now I might rethink the Avgolemono Soup I was going to make tomorrow, in favour of the chicken with lemon – though I’m not sure yet.

    Thanks for the recipes,


    • Hi Dan,

      Yes, it turned out to be one of my busier weekends, but sometimes I prefer that. I highly recommend the chocolate chip cake…I gave a slice to my friend, who proclaimed it the best ever! Avgolemono sounds delicious…I might have to make that in the near future myself–I’ve still got plenty of orzo to use up! :)
