Well I tried to go for it again last night. I’m serious about this eating healthy. I can’t say I came up with what I was going to cook in my 20 min drive home last night. But I managed to do what I could do.

One of my fav things to do with the kids is go to the farmer’s market and let them pick out all kinds of fruits and veggies and seasonings we can use for dinner and what not. This go around my oldest decides he wants to try the BBQ. I can’t say i was too excited about the choice, but I didn’t want to shoot him down you know. With that being said that brings me to last night’s meal. At Sam’s they sale these HUGE chicken breast. Fortunate for me they were already thawed out and ready to go. Yay me! But I decided to go ahead and just cut them in half. I tried to cook one for lunch yesterday and when i bit into i almost wanted to gag, it was horrible. needless to say it got thrown in the trash. Sorry little chicken. Anyway, I cut them in half and again panned friend it in olive oil and simply enough the BBQ seasoning my son picked out.

I didn’t think it was going to taste too good. Just your regular BBQ taste. Boy was I wrong!! That chicken was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!! And the kids did not hesitate to tell!! That was the first thing gone on their plate!!!

While the chicken was cooking, I took out some frozen broccoli that I got from Sam’s. I unthawed it a little in the microwave cause I wasn’t sure how it would hold up in my little chopper. That’s right…my chopper. After I let it unthaw for about 5 mins I took that broccoli and chopped it up and set to the side. Because my plane was to………..Well I’ll tell you about that a little later HEHEHE!!

Now something that I forgot to mention that I did before I didn’t anything else. I turned on my oven in one of the HOTTEST months of the year…..and I decieded I wanted to make some bake potatoes. But what I did was took a baking pan and poured a smidge of olive oil at the bottom and sprinkled with the BBQ seasoning. I cut the potatoes in one half and laid them down on the flat side. So for however long (couldn’t tell you the exact time) I allowed my potatoes cook until they were nice and moist on the inside.

Probably not the best looking but you know it is what it is. Now these are the red potatoes. I’m not sure how healthy those are but i figured they are from the ground, how bad could they be right? Not only that it’s all about moderation. If you over do anything it could be bad for you. But any who.

After the potatoes were done it was time to finish up the broccoli, since it was the quickest thing to make. I didn’t want to cook it too long cause i wanted it to be nice and nutritious. With that being said however the next thing I did was added shredded cheese. Is that healthy, not sure but hey my kids ate broccoli!!! That’s all that mattered to me at the moment. So I added cheese and sea salt and that was it. let it cook till cheese was melted and TAD-AH!!  I have made a topping for my bake potato!

Now is this another dinner success, well for me it was. My kids loved it, my husband loved it and everyone was happy. Not only that I didn’t get it from a fast food restaurant! What even better is that I got up this morning and ran AGAIN!! I’m on a roll…I THINK!

Well my lovlies, that’s my time. Let me know what you think in the comment box below! Ya’ll come back now ya hear!

Land Of Make Beleive

How do I read when you speak of me?
Frolicking in meadows, drinking from my melodic streams?
This is how I long for you to envision me in your dreams

Thoughts and feelings hid deep in your chest
Is it so deep and repressed that I am forced to guess?

Forced to tell my heart and body these make believe stories
Making myself believe that you’ve given me all your glory
All your love and emotion you have shown thee

See,
I awaken to discover the reality
You’re unable to even write poetry
About me
To explain to me
Expressions that you can express freely

No midday thoughts
No hidden lullabies’
Just morning salutations
And nightly goodbye’s

No thoughtful gifts
Or a sporadic kiss
Or a lustful stare at my hips and lips
That could possibly send your mind on a wondrous trip

No words that rhyme
For me to read to pass away my time
Deaming me your dime
Frequently lamenting “remember that one time?”

And no photo stills to replay in your mind
To hold in your pocket, like I do mine
To show off to friends talking bout “man ain’t she fine?”

This is what I see when I discover reality
Your inability to cleave to me passionately
To love me intensely

So I close my eyes and play pretend
Pretend that I am your air and you are my wind

In this state of mind I chose to deceive
That you and I are in the land of make believe
