I have to confess, I've already gotten bored with this blog.  It's just pretty damn tiresome documenting what I eat all the time. 

If you want to see recipe ideas, head over to pinterest.  There's a ton there and I have 3 different recipe boards right now:  paleo, low cal/healthy options, and not so good for you but very good looking recipes.




I intend to try to make more of an effort to post comments on pins for things I have made.  If for no other reason, this should help me keep better track of what I have tried and what I haven't.

Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

I can't find the pin I originally saw for this recipe but I know it's out there on a multiple smoothie pin.

My smoothie

You make this with: 8 oz of almond milk, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, one spoonful of peanut butter, and one banana.  You can personalize this to your own taste but this is how I made it and it was wonderful!!!

Chicken and Mushrooms in Wine Sauce

This is one of the better recipes I've made in a while.

I couldn't find any exotic mushroom blends when I went to the store so I chose some shitake, oyster, and enoki mushrooms.  I don't know if you're supposed to cut the stems off shitakes but I usually do because they are so tough.  I forgot to this time so that was a minor issue in the eating.  I have never used enoki mushrooms before so I didn't know what to expect.  Basically, when you cook them, they turn into this hair-like substance which looks kind of unappetizing but tastes very good!  The other problem I had (I do this all the time) was I let the pan get too hot and most of the breading came off the chicken and ended up charred to the bottom of the pan.  Despite all this, I thought this turned out really well and was very delicious.  This is something I would feel good about serving to guests and it really didn't take much time to prep and cook.

My finished meal, steamy not blurry. :)
