Monday Afternoon

I think that this is one of only two Mondays all summer where I am neither working nor away from home…the first was right after finals!  It had a nice mellow afternoon with cleaning and a library trip.  Midway through, I got the craving for an afternoon cup of coffee.  So I brewed myself a nice cup of French roast.  To go with, I had two light rye crackers with peanut butter, banana slices, cocoa powder, cinnamon and agave.

Chicken breast was on sale for less than a dollar a pound at the grocery store, so that was a no-brainer for dinner tonight.  I was afraid of either overcooking the meat or undercooking the skin, but I did well.  The husband loves chicken skin, and he gave my roasting high marks.  I can’t eat a whole half-breast, so I just shredded myself a nice portion.  To go with, I made wild rice and spinach with garlic and lemon.  I made the spinach better than I ever have, and I was so sad that I didn’t make more!  Spinach always wilts down much more than I expect; I find it pretty much impossible to make too much sauteed spinach.

Dessert was an orange.

  1. Oooh, the snack that you enjoyed with your French roast looks AMAZING!! Yum.

  2. WOw your snack does look like heaven. But I have to admit, I am even more tempted by your dinner- so beautiful, colorful, nutritious, and filling. What a wonderful wife you are! WHen I do become one, I hope to be half as good at providing healthy and delicious meals for my plus 1!

    PS- What sort of Greek yogurt do you use? It looks so fluffy and delish- too good to be TJ’s, right?

  3. Anna–Thanks. 🙂 I occasionally buy Fage, which is my favorite, but everything in the last few days has been TJ 0% Greek yogurt. I think TJ yogurt is a great value, which I appreciate, being on a student budget! The texture isn’t quite as luxuriously fluffy as the Fage, but it’s still very creamy and nice. I really like TJ Greek yogurt mixed with fresh fruit…the texture of the Fage is almost too perfect to mess with it by adding other things.
