So, I continue to march toward "less me". Down .6 for a grand total of 28.2 lbs lost. Not bad at all, if I do say so myself.
The walk turned out to be 2.6 miles. I plan to do it every day. We will see. Its an easy walk, level ground, with the only stressors being time and heat. We have a short period in the day when we can get away from our desks and you don't want to take off on a hike in Arizona when its a gazillion degrees outside. Even the coyotes have enough sense to get out of the sun and heat!!
Tonite for dinner I am trying a couple of new recipes:
Lemon Thyme Chicken
POINTS® Value: 5
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp table salt
1 tsp black pepper
4 piece(s) Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 tsp olive oil
1 medium Vidalia onion(s)
1 serving(s) Brummel & Brown
1/2 tsp ground thyme
1 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Combine flour, salt & pepper. Set aside 4 1/2 teaspoons for sauce.
Sprinkle remaing flour mixture over both sides of chicken. Add oil to Skillet and cook chicken over medium heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or unitl juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
In same pan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add thyme and reseved flour mixture; stir unitl blended.
Gradually stir in broth and lemon juice scraping up any brown bits. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over chicken.
With this side:
POINTS® Value: 2
1 bulb(s) garlic clove(s)
4 medium Yukon Gold potato(es)
1/2 medium Vidalia onion(s), chunked
4 tsp olive oil
1 tsp table salt
5 item(s) rosemary sprig
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
4 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Separate garlic in cloves. Leave unpeeled.
Cut potatoes into wedges.
Combine potato, onion and garlic in a bowl. drizzle with oil and add salt.
Arrange in single layer on cookie sheet coated with Pam. Top with rosemary sprigs. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until garlic is tender. Remove garlic and cool. Stir potatoes and bake 5-8 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Discard rosemary . Squeeze softened garlic into a large bowl; mash with a fork. add mustard and vinegar. Add potatoes and stir gently to coat.
This with some asparagus on the side and I will be one happy girl.
