Dinner this week

I notice that I haven't innundated you with my menus for the past few weeks. With this one half gone, I will only give you three days worth of our dinners in case you want to try any of them:

Spicy Basil Chicken is what's for dinner tonight. Not sure yet what I intend to serve it over but I may just use flatout wraps to scoop up the sauce since that would be much less caloric than rice or noodles, especially since I went to lunch with a friend and really can afford about a half serving of this (and it's very healthy) today. Oh, and because I think fish sauce is loathesome, I am leaving that out.

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken is what's on tap for tomorrow since Thursday is my crazy driving all evening day. And really, how can buffalo chicken fail to please everyone?

Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad is Friday's meal (as an actual salad) because it should be light enough not to bite me in the butt when I get up early Saturday morning for my first 10K race in a very long time.

Here's hoping it's all tasty and filling! Oh, and if anyone wants the recipe I used for matzo ball soup, just ask (it comes from Southern Living). It was delicious but labor intensive for sure.

And finally, if you want to see where I discover so many of these tasty foods, feel free to follow me on Pinterest. I have lots of boards but the most pertinent ones to the weight loss process are Recipes to Try, Tried and Tasty, and Exercise and Motivation. If you need an invite to play along on there, let me know your e-mail addy and I'll send one along.

Hope you're having a good week food and exercise-wise.


  1. Thanks for the recipes! I'm going to try the Basil Chicken and the Buffalo Chicken next week!

    Good luck with your race tomorrow. Let me know how it goes!

  2. The Crockpot Buffalo Chicken sounds AMAZING!!! How did it turn out? A co-worker and I have lunch together every Friday, and I think I might make this for our lunch this coming week!!! Thank you for sharing the link to the recipe, and I would love to hear how it turned out!

    1. It was really, really good (and dead easy). The original recipe that I linked to calls for adding butter when you shred the chicken but I skipped that and I don't think it suffered from the loss at all. Plus that makes it healthier overall.

  3. I made the Crockpot Buffalo Chicken yesterday and the whole family loved it! I served it on a bun with a littel blue cheese (but I ate mine on a salad) and it was delicious! It will definitely be made again.
