at work!  Wow, I haven’t been that busy in a long time, but I loved it.  I was non-stop all day.  I even ate my lunch in front of a copier!

Luckily I had time to scarf my breakfast down before I got busy.  I used a low carb wrap and made a black bean breakfast taco.  This suprisingly kept me full for hours!  Maybe because of the protein in the beans and eggs and the high fiber of the tortilla?

I even ended up having to work late.  I had defrosted two chicken breasts to make chicken marsala and I was going to make homemade whole wheat noodles to serve with them.  I texted Tony that I would be running late, he asked if he should start dinner.  Here is where I almost always say “don’t worry about it, I’ll fix something when I I get home.”  I am kind of a control freak when it comes to the kitchen!

And another reason.  See, when it was just me and Hannah living together, I knew where all my stuff was (most of the time!).  But nothing was ever put back in the same place twice.  This makes cooking in my kitchen difficult for anyone else because where you once found soy sauce in a plastic squirt bottle in the door of the refrigerator last time, is now in the lazy susan underneath the coffee pot.  The wok that was once downstairs on the dedicated cooking shelf is now on top of the downstairs refrigerator.

So when I texted to Tony that he could make dinner, there was thawed chicken and to “be creative! I secretly cringed because a.  he didn’t have a whole lot to work with in a short amount of time and b. he probably wouldn’t be able to find anything to go with the chicken.

He did great though!  He made chicken stir fry with leftover brown rice using frozen broccoli and zucchini mix.  And it was nice and spicy just the way I like it. 😀

But we both discussed that it’s hard to do South Beach quickly.  I mean, you could make pasta in minutes, etc., but if you don’t have a plan, then you are kind of stuck!

I have a plan tonight . . . my buffalo chicken chili over homemade whole wheat pasta – a South Beach chili mac! 😀

Thankfully my day will be less hectic.  I didn’t read one blog yesterday, including comments to my own, so I’ll catch up with you guys tonight.

Happy Thursday – only two more work days and I am off for 9 days! 😀  Woot!

Make it a Great Day!
