I told you yesterday that the crustless cauliflower quiche was on the delicate side and needed more zing.  So I cooked up two pieces of bacon with it šŸ˜€

But it still needed something:

that’s the ticket!

At lunch I decided to do one of the “extreme” rides and picked one that was 10.5 miles – when I looked down at the hill climb on the screen it didn’t look too bad, but what I didn’t realize is because its such a long ride, a 1/2 mile hill climb doesn’t look like much on the screen!  It was tough – the pacer bike beat me by 8 minutes – but it was a good workout.

Have you been on healthy yum lately?  I kind of forgot about that site, but yesterday saw a post from a girl who made a meatless reuben – she just used more sauerkraut – a girl after my own heart!

I had a turkey reuben for lunch – 2 ounce rye bread, 2 ounce smoked turkey, 1 ounce swiss cheese, 1/2 cup sauerkraut and 1/2 sliced green apple.  I loved this combination.  The salt from the cheese paired well with the sauerkraut.  I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray and Pam to fry it up.

My store had cut up chicken for $1.79, so whenever I see that I think “buttermilk fried chicken.”  I marinated the cut up chicken in buttermilk, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper overnight.   Then it was just tossed in seasoned flour (I eyeballed it) and then fried in our deep fryer.  Because our fryer holds the temperature so well, it didn’t taste greasy at all.

you gotta love a deep fryer every once in a while šŸ˜€

If you live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, you could have come over for dinner last night – I made 10 pieces of fried chicken for 3 people!

My plate:

624 calories, 39 carbs, 38 protein, 34 fat and 1 fiber

And since I still had the fryer out, I may have made some munchkins with some of the leftover donut dough!

Hannah approves! šŸ˜€

There appears to be two concurrent BSI contests going on at the same time.  I apologize for any confusion this has caused.  This weeks hostess according to me is the Southern Cookbook who chose butter.   However, Chilli & Chocolate is also hosting this week with pistachio.   My solution is to let Southern Cookbook finish this week – and then we will extend Chilli & Chocolate’s pistachio as the hostess for next week.  Does that sound like a fair solution?
