Yesterday was a rest day as far as exercise goes. The aching muscles appreciated it too. I've wondered what it must be like for Biggest Loser contestants after their first hard core workout. Can they even move the next day? Do they have people to massage them? Do they get a day off for recovery? I can't even imagine.
Eats were good yesterday. For dinner I made a terrific recipe called Dijon Chicken. It's something I've made in the past but kind of forgot about it until Chuck reminded me. (ME: what should I make for dinner? CHUCK: how about that chicken stuff? ME: Oh yeah! Forgot about that.)
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup mayo
2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Mix mayo and mustard. Place chicken in baking dish and brush with mayo mix. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover loosely with foil and bake in 400* oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10 more minutes. (I like to run under the broiler briefly to brown it a little)
The chicken comes out so tender you don't need a knife.
While at the grocery store I was looking at the ingredients on various mayos. They all contained soybean oil! Even the ones that advertise olive oil are mostly soybean oil. It may be time for me to make up a batch of my own mayo. I've done it years ago and it's really not difficult. Just have to find a good recipe.
Tonight Chuck and I have a special dinner. A splurge dinner. A tequila dinner at McCormick and Schmick's. It was just one of those things I didn't want to pass up. I think it will be a lot of fun. Tequila is low carb, right? OK, I know. It's a nice 4 course dinner and I'm going to enjoy it. :)
See you tomorrow with some pics of the fun.
