Being a faithful reader of Sarah’s blog, I have come to love Martha recipes as Sarah cooks her way through one of Martha’s cookbooks. When in a bind (or at the Rocket Scientist’s and therefore sans cookbooks), I hit up the Martha Stewart Food website for some ideas. The recipes are usually pretty quick and fairly healthy, so they’re right up my alley! Yesterday prior to grocery shopping, I selected Mediterranean Chicken as my meal of choice for the week. (Cooking for one for me means making one meal to last almost all week!).
Let’s see how mine turned out:
I admittedly set off the smoke detectors while cooking…I guess the olive oil reached it’s smoke point! Oops! I opened all the windows, which makes it a little chilly in here, but that’s what sweatshirts are for. :) I really like the Kashi pilaf…it was easy to make (threw it in the rice cooker!) and has a nice nutty flavor. The chicken is quite tasty…anything with olives is made infinitely better!
On the side I’m currently eating a spinach salad…complete with strawberries, dried cranberries, feta cheese, pecans, and a raspberry walnut dressing. Gotta squeeze that iron in. :)

I biked in Princeton for about an hour and a half yesterday…my garmin’s battery was dead so I have no clue how far I went. Back to the old days of just using a watch! Although I didn’t even have a watch, so I just went by the time on my cell phone. A little more relaxed environment than staring at the data on my wrist. The Rocket Scientist ran seventeen miles while I was biking…his training is going well, and we’re hoping he qualifies for Boston in November so we can run both run Boston in April. He finished the Delaware Marathon in 3:13 this year, so he’s close! Fingers crossed.
I’m also heading to a sports medicine doctor on Friday, so hopefully I can at least get some direction in what’s going on with my leg.
