Rumble in the Jungle

Another Sunday dinner lunch courtesy of the Man of the House:
  • garlic chicken
  • garlic mashed potatoes
  • garlic roasted Brussels sprouts
  • frozen peaches
  • sugar snap peas
Can you spot the trend? Needless to say, eating heavily garlicked meal at 1:00 in the afternoon leads to a somewhat "breezy" evening. But, honestly, it's too good to pass up a meal like this for lunch. He makes it in the slow cooker and chicken turns out so moist and tender as a result. I'll see if he will give me the recipe to share on here.

I've been feeling a bit uninspired lately. Not sure what to cook or what to eat and A LOT of the food that I know NOT to eat have been finding their way into my mouth (Mr. Goodbar, I'm looking at you)! I was exercising like a maniac for the past couple of weeks and now I don't even feel like walking down to the lobby to check the mail. Ugh! Anyway, that's life right?

Let's get back to packing lunches and making great meals.


  1. Sometimes I get dips where I am so exercise unmotivated. It is so hard to restart the momentum once you stop. But You can do it! I so would love the recipe to garlic chicken! Tell him your readers are begging!

  2. yeah. i'll have the recipe too please! looks great and i have a slow cooker too. loss of motivation is also completely normal. the good thing is, there has never been once - not once - that i have ever exercised and then regretted it later. i remind myself of that whenever my motivation is low, and it helps get me off the lounge (most of the time!)
