Hola! I’m en route to Kiawah Island in South Carolina where I will spend the next 5 days at a Young President’s Organization conference. More details on that later but I’m so excited for the opportunity to attend this event. It’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience!
First, let me give a big thanks to Verizon for the mobile hotspot. Did you know that for $20 a month you can turn your phone into a modem and use it to connect to the internet anywhere? It’s pretty nice for long road trips!
Let me catch you up on what’s been going on the last few days with food and workouts.
I made a delicious dinner on Monday night! I picked up some spicy pimento cheese from a local vendor a couple of weeks ago and have been dreaming of pimento cheese stuffed chicken ever since. I pounded out the breasts, seasoned them heavily with salt and pepper, dredged them in flour and then spread the pimento cheese on one side and folded the breast in half. I browned them in the skillet with olive oil and then finished them in the oven at 350. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any kitchen twine to tie up the stuffed breasts so the cheese kind of oozed out everywhere but it ended up being a good thing because I spooned it over the chicken.
Served with green beans and sliced homegrown tomatoes that are the best I’ve had since last summer. Loved this dinner!
Lunch salad with spinach, mixed greens, tomatoes, olives, spicy almonds, feta, artichokes, cucumbers, pepperonici and salmon with balsamic.
My one and only WOD of the week and it was a great one! It was a decreasing rep scheme of front squats and weighted sit ups…a total of 84 of each! I was able to RX this workout in a little over 12 minutes. My legs are really feeling this! I have now promised my mom that I won’t lift for the next week to let my neck calm down so it’ll be all yoga and running for the rest of the week.
Pimento cheese…love it, leave it or never tried it? It’s one of my favorite southern foods!
