I had such a lazy day yesterday. I stayed in my pajamas until 3:30 in the afternoon! Usually I am up by 7 – gone to Weight Watchers, go to the store and am back home by 9:30. I didn’t even wake up until 10:20!
But it felt good to just lay around and watch t.v. with Tony. Usually I feel guilty if I don’t use my time wisely, but not yesterday, so that was nice.
I ended up making Tony and I breakfast at the time most people eat lunch. I made us corned beef hash with English muffins. My plate came in at 11 points.
By the time I finally went to the store and got back, it was nearing 5:00. I bought a whole chicken to grill. I wasn’t sure the grill would even light, but the two middle burners turned on (the others were frozen!) so I just went with that.
I learned long ago to butterfly my whole chicken. I cannot tell you how many times we thought a chicken was done, only to cut it open and have the center be nearly raw. This way it not only cooks evenly, but faster too – this took about an hour on the grill at a temp of 375.
My plate: the wing (my favorite!) 5 ounces of breast meat, buffalo sauce and a 5 ounce baked potato.
I am looking forward to today! My SIL and I are going out – Goodwill, Moe’s for lunch and then Williams Sonoma – I have a $100 gift card to Williams Sonoma that’s burning a whole in my pocket. Hope I get some good deals!
Don’t forget – today is the last day to submit recipes for BSI potato! Just leave the links in the comments section – or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner gets two jars of my baja fresh salsa!
