I need a new cross training exercise y'all. I've been biking on Thursdays but now I'm bored with that. I need to figure out something new, otherwise I have two consecutive rest days at the end of the week. Maybe more yoga? If so, yoga will be Mondays and Thursdays, but I have to admit I've had great runs the past two Saturdays, when I did have both Thursday and Friday as rest days.
Saturday I decided to try a new to me recipe of chicken salsa verde in the crock pot. I followed this recipe from Skinnytaste, but I did throw in a cup of chicken broth because I didn't think the 16oz of salsa verde would keep the meat moist by itself. I made Spanish rice to go with it and put the meat into corn tacos. This was a success! That is one I'm keeping since I'm looking for easy chicken recipes for the summer. I have a feeling my crock pot will get some good use.
I also discovered this:
Yeah, that bag is now empty, but on Sunday I found the chocolate-covered cherries at Sprouts, so I have more for the week. I need to come up with dessert ideas while Blue Bell cleans up their production line. Once Blue Bell is back up and running, I'll have my ice cream again. In the mean time, I'm getting dessert and a fruit serving rolled into one.
My friends and I got together Sunday to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There's been a bit of press about the 40th anniversary this year and the Pythons being at the Tribeca Film Festival so I thought a viewing of our own was in store. Anybody else Monty Python fans?
