This morning it was 16 degrees, so M and I planned to hit up the treadmills at her gym... only to find that every single one was broken. Ridiculous! I was quite annoyed, but we made the best of it and hopped onto the elliptical for 25 minutes. I haven't been on an elliptical in a while and it was... boring! Luckily, Saved by the Bell was on to distract us :-) It's going to be cold here for a while - so we need a new plan to stick with the running. What's the coldest temperature you'll withstand to go for a run outdoors? I think my limit might be 30, but then again, that means no running for the rest of the week! Yikes.
Lunch today was Double-Cheese Chicken and Vegetables. By "double-cheese," I mean that the recipe called for both cheese sauce AND shredded cheese. It was really good, but the consistency was a little bit... off? Anyway, it was basically like macaroni and cheese, but with veggies and chicken - yum! It was also ridiculously easy to make, so I definitely think I'd make it again. It's a good way to make healthier macaroni and cheese when you have a craving! (Sorry - forgot to photograph it.)
Tonight, Scott and I had our friends J & D over for a little dinner partay. I made Mustard Lamb Chops and green beans, and J brought potatoes. Let me start by saying her potatoes were awesome! They were red potatoes, cut into smaller pieces, and sauteed/cooked in balsamic vinegar, rosemary, thyme, cinnamon, garlic... I don't know what else, but it was delicious! The green beans were... meh, nothing special, but I like to have veggies at every meal if possible They were very crisp, which is the way I like them... hooray fresh veggies!
