An Old Favorite

by Meghann on January 8, 2011

Maddie and I are crazy night animals.

Can’t you tell?

Oh, yeah we totally bummed it today. We watched movies, I did work, and Maddie snoozed by my side. I <3 her!

I also hit up Publix for next week’s haul of groceries and picked up the fixins for dinner tonight.

My roommate and I used to make stuffed chicken in college all the time. We would buy chicken breasts, open a bottle of wine, and discuss our life stories while stuffing the breasts with what ever tickled our fancy that evening.

Tonight I didn’t have a bottle of wine or a roommate to share my life story with (though Maddie tried her hardest to listen as I attempted to ramble on), but I did have chicken… and blue cheese… and spinach and tomato and a delicious balsamic vinegar.

I sliced the chicken breast down the middle just as we used to and in a separate bowl I mixed a generous hunk of crumbled blue cheese, chopped spinach, chopped tomato, and the balsamic vinegar. The mix was placed in the middle of the butterflied chicken and then folded over and baked at 375 for 35 minutes.

Just as good as I remembered. ๐Ÿ™‚

We used to pair the chicken with a side salad, but this evening I decided on some steamed broccoli and carrots instead.

As well as a piece of Whole Foods’ Cornbread for a special treat.

For dessert I went with another college tradition – ice cream and cookies in front of a movie.

Movie of choice? Craigslist Killer. My thoughts? ehhh…. it was ok. Honestly I thought the movie toned down what the guy did – the way the media had reported on it I always assumed it was multiple killings over a long period of time. From the movie it didn’t appear as if he was very stealth about hiding what his crimes.

Alright, time for sleep.

Good night! ๐Ÿ™‚

A Year Ago This Weekend…

January 8, 2011

I was running the Walt Disney World Marathon. Man, time flies. At the time, Disney was my second marathon and since then I’ve run the Gasparilla Michelobe Challenge, my first Ultra-Marathon, Chicago, and my first Sub-4 marathon in Palm Beach. It’s hard to believe I ran 4 marathons + 1 ultra in 2010. Craziness. I’ll more ยป
