If you’re like us, you’re still recovering from last night’s Game of Thrones episode. We are usually in bed by 8:30 PM, so GoT nights are late for us! We also saw Avengers: End Game (no spoilers here, but it was great!) yesterday morning, and grabbed lunch afterwards at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I had the most amazing breakfast skillet with refried beans, hash browns, ham, cheddar, cilantro, and two poached eggs. The Beard got a chorizo burrito, which looked equally as awesome (even if I don’t like chorizo).
So my meal prep routine was a little out of wack this weekend, but I still managed to get everything done before settling on the couch for the night. But we made it, Monday has arrived. Bring it on, week!
I used up some more of the wild rice from Trader Joe’s to make a quick salad with roasted chicken, chick peas, and green peas.
I roasted both the chick peas and chicken breast in the oven until cooked/crispy. Tossed that together with the cooked rice, green peas, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Roasted chick peas make a great snack as well! Just season and roast until crispy, wait until they are cool enough that you don’t burn your fingers, and devour. I usually season mine with Greek seasoning and/or lemon pepper.
Served up with cherry tomatoes and chopped cucumbers, yum!
Goals for the week: re-screen some more windows (surprisingly satisfying), clean the shower, caulk the shower, finish my book I’m reading, switch out winter clothes for warm weather clothes, stretch every night this week, and make a decent dent in the baby blanket I’m working on for a friend.
What I’m looking forward to this week: my sister coming to town, participating in my work’s 5k, and a visit to Frankenmuth
