My last indulgence before the budget crunch down came in the mail today (bought while we were still in financial ignorant bliss).
My new Nike Running shoes!
So stinking comfortable, which is good because this will be the last pair of workout shoes that I get for a long time. I probably should get the gym thing going considering that it has been on my goal list and it would definitely speed up the weight loss process.
I looked at 4 different stores and 2 different online stores to find these shoes in my size. See, I have something called big foot issues. I am a size 12 in gym shoes 11 in regular shoes. Check out these bad boys:
Yes, my toes are like fingers. Anyway, I'm so excited to get back to the gym next week and put some miles on them!
Made an interesting recipe concoction last night. Turned out really good, but ate it so fast that I didn't get to snap a photo. Here is the recipe:
Chicken Peanut Noodles
10 oz Chicken Breast
3 T Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tsp Sugar
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
2 T Reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 T Water
1 1/4 tsp Rice-wine vinegar
1 T chopped fresh cilantro
2 c Brussel Sprouts
1/1/2 c Barilla Plus protein noodles
In small bowl combine the peanut butter, sugar, and garlic until smooth. Add the soy sauce, water, vinegar, and cilantro and stir until combined
Cook noodles, grill chicken breast, Steam brussel sprouts. Throw brussel sprouts in food processor until chopped.
Combine noodles, peanut sauce and brussel sprouts. Spread chicken on top.
