Fiesta chicken!

I'm behind on my blogging again.  I ate some cajun roast beef Sunday night and got glutened.  So basically I've been dealing with bloating, fatigue, and general ickiness this week. Anyhow, Sunday was obviously Mother's Day.  I got my mom a Mary Higgins Clark book and a shirt.  I'm lucky enough to have a really awesome mom, she's nice, funny, and would do anything to help me! 

My daughter got me a penguin necklace!  I LOVE penguins.  I think they are the cutest things ever! :) Plus this necklace is interchangeable so it matches everything! 

Anyhow on to the food!  I recently tried Orville Redenbacher Natural salt and lime popcorn. I really liked it.  I usually don't like popcorn much, so that's saying something.  On the other hand my husband is huge into popcorn and didn't care for it.  Go figure! 

I've been trying to get more veggies into my lunches.  The past two days I have had this salad.  Contents are: shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, tuna, a sprinkle of shredded cheddar, and Annie's Tuscany dressing. Strawberries for dessert.  Pretty tasty.  
Dinner tonight was very yummy.  I had some chicken breast thawed and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it.  I decided to make it fiesta style!  First I cooked some brown rice (not the quick kind).  When it was done I stirred in cayenne pepper and a pat of butter.  I then stirred in a bit of salsa verde.  For the chicken I sauteed some garlic in olive oil then added the chicken.  Sprinkled with cumin, cayenne, and paprika.  I cooked this in my cast iron skillet.  I love cast iron!  I topped the rice with organic pinto beans, the chicken, a bit more salsa verde, a sprinkle of cheddar, and a dollop of light sour cream and guacamole.  Wow, so good!  I'm actually really excited to eat this for lunch tomorrow! 

Well better get back to watching Dexter.  We found out season four was on Showtime on Demand so we added Showtime promptly.  I am crazy addicted to this show.  Someone has ruined the ending for me, but I'm enjoying watching it anyhow.
