Low Key Night

by Meghann on May 4, 2011

Sooo sleepy….

Derek is already comfy in bed and I’m t-minus 15 minutes away from joining him.

But, first…

Afternoon snack






I have a soft spot for chicken tenders. They’re an old favorite that I could easily enjoy every day and not get tired of them.

I like to bread mine with wheat bran and whole wheat flour then bake at 415 for 12 minutes. They are delicious and keep the digestive system happy.


Fresh corn off the cob served on the side (anyone else not a fan of eating the corn actually off the cob?)


Sauteed Kale with onions (which Derek totally turned down. how. rude.)




ice cream for dessert


The comfy bed awaits!

Good Night!

Low key nights are the best. Plus there is nothing better than some good ol’ fashioned comfort food. Mmmmm…that ice cream is calling my name! It’s a good thing I don’t have any in the house. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My husband won’t eat kale or spinach. Oh well, their loss.

I need to try kale that way. I haven’t had it since a little burning incident with some kale chips. oops! ๐Ÿ˜‰

How do you get the corn off the cob? My bf doesn’t like it straight off the cob either. Did you boil it?

6 Meghann May 5, 2011 at 6:59 am

I shave it off with a knife.

7 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 4, 2011 at 9:08 pm

I love corn on the cob — I prefer it that way over eating it with a spoon/fork.

Good night!

i love eating corn on the cob! … i like corn in general!

I love corn off the cob! People think I’m weird, but that way it doesn’t need salt or butter! So tasty.

12 Renee May 4, 2011 at 9:24 pm

I’m from Iowa, it might be illegal to not eat it on the cob ๐Ÿ˜‰ jk. Either way, fresh corn is A-MAZING! ๐Ÿ™‚

I always want to try the pretzel mustard combo, it looks so good in your pictures … new challenge awaits..

and thanks to you, I was inspired to sign up for my first 6 wk yoga session.. and tonight was the first class… so amazing, thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚

Haha, if Derek was eating kale I’d be worried. Definitely not a guy food. Plus, that means more for you!

I have some mango green tea in the fridge! It’s not the same brand (it’s a local one from Santa Cruz) – it’s so refreshing!

15 Rebecca @ How tge Cookies Crumble May 4, 2011 at 9:53 pm

I like to cut my corn off the cob too but it’s so much better fresh!! Yum! I

16 Hilary May 4, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Derek’s totally missing out on the kale! Chicken tenders + ice cream….sounds like a perfect comfort food supper to me!

I don’t like eating corn on the actual cob either! I’m not sure why, but I think it has something to do with the strings on the corn and the mess factor. Glad I’m not alone ๐Ÿ™‚

mmm I love that you have fresh corn on the side and BBQ sauce goes with everything!

Hope you get a lovely night’s sleep! ๐Ÿ™‚

20 Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat May 4, 2011 at 10:32 pm

I’m the same way about corn on the cob–I swear it tastes better when you cut it off!

I love homemade chicken fingers – I just made them the other night too. They are such a yummy comfort food for me!

I actually prefer eating corn on the cob ๐Ÿ™‚

23 Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me May 4, 2011 at 10:48 pm

omg I love chicken fingers too. I can’t get enough. but they’re soooo good when made at home. The fast food version is so nasty.

That is a good idea–coating chicken fingers in wheat bran…I might try ground flax seed ๐Ÿ™‚ G-night!

26 Alaina May 5, 2011 at 12:03 am

Sometimes eating corn off the cob is fun, but for the most part, I’ll scrap it off. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmm..chicken tenders. With BBQ sauce!

Oh yea, my boyfriend would definitely turn down that kale! Too green and alien for his liking ๐Ÿ˜‰ But he’d totally scarf down the chicken tenders!

Those chicken tenders look really good! I’ve never had sauteed kale. I definitely need to try doing that! I like roasting kale so I’m sure I’ll like it sauteed too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always take my corn of the cob! It’s so much easier to eat it that way!
