I am not.
Starting tomorrow, we will continue to juice for breakfast and lunch, but then get to eat a healthy meal for dinner.
You know what that means? I've spent hours looking at food on the internet. And I am SO ready to cook. Our meal tomorrow night will be:
Grilled Chicken Breast**
and these little suckers....
Stuffed Brussel Sprouts
If you remember from months back, I cooked, and subsequently ate, brussel sprouts for the first time. You shared your favorite ways to prepare them, I ignored most of them because they sounded healthy and scared me, and I ended up getting the littlest ones I could find, sauteing onions and garlic, then throwing in the sprouts with a little more EVOO, and then pouring in some chicken broth and boiling them for about 7 minutes.
However, tomorrow night I am going to try the recipe for stuffed sprouts above. You can find it on my Pinterest, or from the original "creator" at http://cookingstoned.tv/ . I found him on Pinterest and he makes cute little videos for those of us who are visual learners. I am going to sub the ricotta cheese with greek yogurt..because I THINK I can, and it would make it a little healthier.
**I have shared this before, but it makes a world of difference in my chicken breast. Heather and I both prefer thin chicken breasts. Sometimes there is nothing worse (okay, maybe juicing a bell pepper...trust me...never do it, or getting a poo stuck), but other than that, sometimes there is nothing worse than having to eat a really thick chicken breast that someone has cooked for you that has absolutely no flavor on the inside and is dry and yuck yuck.
So, I take one chicken breast, put it on my cutting board, cover it with plastic wrap and pound the hell out of it with my meat pounder (technical term). This makes it thinner, but it also makes one chicken breast serve 2 people! I then marinate it, preferably all day if I have the time, and then grill it.
And here is a chicken grilling tip for those of us lucky enough to get to "woman" the grill...You heat your grill on high. Throw your breast on and let it kiss each side for about 1 minute...then turn that sucker DOWN! Low heat is the best way to grill a chicken breast. Don't over cook that sucker.
So that is Thursday night dinner.
For Friday night dinner, we will be having crustless quiche that is also on my Pinterest board and these little guys below. Broccoli tossed in hummus. I steam my broc for about 8 minutes (I like it soft) but the recipe says you can prep your broccoli anyway you want, and then toss in hummus. Interesting. Very interesting.
There is really only one question left...
Is it dinnertime yet?
