Things I Like


Fabulous Friday!

Thanks for all your comments on my post yesterday.  You know how sometimes you just need to gripe about something?  That was me. I am not changing anything, but I just needed to get that off my chest.  At wits end  Rant over. 

Breakfast today was the banana bread pudding.  I haven’t had this one in a while since I was on the steel cut oats kick.


Topped with coconut butter.  I have to confess just eating this stuff off a spoon. 

You know I usually end up with pretty serious Fridayitis, but I decided to buckle down and really work hard today. Often times I will cut my day short on Friday and work some Saturday morning to make up for it, but I decided I wanted an entire 2 days off this weekend.

I did take a break for a pear mid morning.


Today was one of those dreary winter days.  Now is that long span until spring with not much happening.  I do need to make an announcement for next month’s Healthy Heart weekend, though! 

Back on poultry again.  Turkey for lunch.


Funny, my mother asked me if I was tired of eating chicken. It probably seems like that is all I eat – and I do eat a lot of it.  You can do a lot of different things with chicken.  I get tired of beef or ham quicker than poultry. 

I got in a nice one mile walk after lunch. I was just trucking down the street pretty fast and I looked up to say hello to someone passing by.  Normally people will just ignore you, but I try to make a point to acknowledge someone.  Well, I look up and this man had a great big grin on his face and said “Hi!” before I even got it out. Surprise  I said hi back and walked just a bit faster LOL!

John and I did our usual Friday hooky.  Coffee Planet it is! I had my coffee stamp card filled and got a free latte.


All my pictures today are kind of gray because that was just the dimness of a damp and cloudy day.  Good day to sit in a coffee shop, though!

There was more poultry to be had for dinner.  I made some maple mustard chicken. It’s super easy and very tasty. 

Mix together:

  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup (the real stuff – don’t even tell me if you use fake stuff)
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. 

Pour over chicken breasts or thighs – about a pound of them.  Bake at 450 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes until the juices run clear.  I actually prefer the chicken thighs, but this is quite a tasty recipe.


It has a good mustard flavor and not too sweet. I imagine using honey instead of maple syrup would work fine as well.  You just need a thicker sweetener so the sauce isn’t watery.  It might be pretty awesome on the grill, too.

I just finished up this workout, which Biz posted on FB:


Dang! I can’t remember the last time I did 130 jumping jacks.  This took about 15 minutes to get through and I was quite out of breath.  Good workout for a short time!

Now time for a granola snack and some Friday night relaxing!

Have a great weekend.  And Go Broncos!!!  Playoffs, baby!!
