My sister Brandy went to the hospital to have her baby today....Jeremiah has arrived and I hear he's healthy. I took my niece and nephew, Carla and Cyress, along with my sister Amy, out to lunch today and then to the lake for some fun in the sun. I let Carla choose where we were having lunch, and she chose her favorite...Chinese! Yes, I took a pic. I also let my sister take a pic of me in a bathing suit...with no make-up. Can you believe it???? I still can't believe it...but I'm going to post it. I have no idea why, lol.
Breakfast was a Kashi bar.
Lunch at the Chinese buffet.
Pics from the rest of the day, and new recipe at the bottom!
My mom gave me a new recipe book a few weeks ago and I finally made something out of it. It was FANTASTIC!!!! Spinach-stuffed chicken breasts...here's my pics!!
(3) 6 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to 1/2" thickness, 1/2 c. lite sour cream, 1/2 c. 2% shredded colby-jack cheese, a little spoon of minced garlic & 9 oz. bag of fresh spinach (wilted in microwave on high for 2 mins).
Wrap each pc. of chicken with 2 strips of lower sodium bacon (2 pieces of bacon is 70 cals).
Bake uncovered at 375 for 40 mins, then on broil for addt'l. 10 mins.
Here's the calorie breakdown:
First, the filling is supposed to be for 4 chkn brsts, but the pkg I bought only had 3 in it.
9 oz. bag of spinach: 60
1/2 c. lite sour cream: 320
1/2 c. 2% shredded colby-jack chz: 160
1 small spoon of minced garlic
Filling total: 540
Divided by 3: 180 per pc. of chicken
Calories for one serving:
6 oz. chkn brst: 180
2 pcs. lower sodium bacon: 70
1/3 filling: 180
Total Cals for one svg: 430
I paired mine w/ about 1 1/2 c. of yellow squash, zucchini & onions.
I'm excited about trying some more recipes out of this book very soon!
Be back tomorrow! :)
