I just haven't been in the mood to spend hours in the kitchen so I've been looking for quick and easy. The easiest thing I can make is baked chicken and veggies.
Easy doesn't have to mean nasty. This stuff is really good and ready in 35 minutes. Make up a bunch and you have chicken for wraps, soup, salads, snacks, etc.

Easy Baked Chicken
paprika (I use smoked paprika)
Sprinkle chicken on both side with all seasonings. Bake at 400* for 35 minutes. Done!
That's it. See? Crazy easy.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of going out to lunch with my lunch buddy. We only get to go about once every month or so but it's always fun. We are both trying to watch the waistline so we both has salads with shwarma meat. Soooo good. This thing was huge! No way I could finish it.
Let me tell you, it's not always easy to stick to healthy eating when going out. This place had an entire display case of baklava and I love that stuff. And dolmas stuffed with rice. Yum. We decided to come back at a later time and have a lunch of shwarma and dolmas and baklava.
It was a nice lunch and conversation is better than food anyway, right? Right?!
I've sometimes been given a hard time for taking pictures of my eats but it doesn't bother me (much). So what if I take pictures of nearly everything I eat.
Totally off topic but my mother in law gave me a couple of festive table runners over the weekend. I used the chicken one on my bar counter. Isn't it cute?
You probably didn't know I love chickens. :)
Not much else going on around here. Just getting ready for Christmas and the end of the world. Wondering if the kids should open presents before Friday so they can enjoy them before the end of the world. Hmmmm. (I don't really believe in the whole end of the world thing on Friday. Just playing along.)
Friday morning I'll be driving to Humble, TX to run a half marathon. It's the End of the World half marathon and it promises to have a nice medal at the end. Then that's it! I'm not doing another race until next year! It'll probably take that long to recover.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to be all good with my eats and Rachel is baking tons of goodies. Temptation.
Have a wonderful End of the World on Friday!! I'll see you back here afterwards. Give those you love a big hug. You know......just in case it's the end of the world.
