Food Diary Entry #7 (for, Tues 4-29-2013)

Today fiance stayed home since he has a very bad sunburn! Yesterday we went to the doctor and he was given a shot, some antibiotics, ibuprofen, and a cream. He got this bad sunburn because he didn’t wear any sunscreen and went fishing for 9 hours! So please wear sunscreen if you are going to be out in the sun for hours! He definitely learned his lesson and he needed to stay home from work to rest. Today he is able to walk without saying “ow”, so we are definitely making an improvement! Today has been very relaxing and there has been lots of eating going on.

Around 3 pm today I decided to try Peanut Butter Fingers chicken tacos in my old school crock pot! here is proof:

See i told you it was old school! My mom left me this crock pot on Cas’s first birthday party. I found so many recipes that look really easy and they use a crock pot!

For breakfast:
A strawberry and banana smoothie. I added a few almonds and a little bit of milk. I forget how sweet fruit can be when I don’t add kale or spinach to smoothies.

For lunch:
I wanted a little bit of everything for lunch today. I wanted edamame with a spicy sauce on top and a kale salad massaged with squeezed lemon juice. Both of these ideas are not original since they are from two restaurants I visit often. One is a sushi place and the other is a vegetarian restaurant. So what do I have on my plate? Well, a kale salad, roasted red pepper hummus, pita chips, and steamed edamame with chili garlic sauce on top. You guys I ate every single thing! I left nothing! Yumm-O!

Afternoon snack:
Since I was waiting on my 2 ingredient chicken tacos cooking in the slow cooker, the smell was making me hungry. I ate a lara bar to help with my growling stomach. I knew I wasn’t starving but I did want something small. This particular flavor is not my favorite but I did like the coconut in it! My favorite lara bar is the chocolate chip flavor!

Dinner:
So 5 1/2 hours the chicken tacos were ready! And they were totally worth the wait! My fiance likes flour tortillas with his tacos and I had two taco shells… plus a flour tortilla! I know, I know they are not healthy but they are one of my weaknesses. I normally have two tacos but I was really hungry by the time dinner came around so I had 3. These tacos were amazing, especially with salsa verde. My fiance added roasted chipotle salsa to his and they were just as delicious. This was super yummy and I was going to use romaine instead of iceberg but how can you eat a taco without the crispiness of iceberg lettuce! Cas had himself a tiny burrito with the chicken, lettuce, and tomatoes. He did eat half of eat and picked at it later.

Dessert:
2 Oreo cookies with a cup of milk. My fiance and I are now going to watch Justice League on Netflix until it is time for bed. (If you didn’t know, I love superhero tv shows, movies, and comics! My favorite is Batman!)
