Kauai: Today’s Workout, Lazy Day #2, and Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken
I made a friend while wandering the beach yesterday:
He wasn’t looking so good on the flip side:
Poor lil guy!
The science nerd in me always gets a kick out of finding nifty things like this. I also got excited when I saw a huge log washed up on shore and I knew that it had to have floated thousands of miles to end up right there in front of me.
Yeah, I’m a real hit at parties!
Workout — May 10, 2013
Another sun rise workout was in order for me today. I grabbed my bag of workout goodies and headed out the door and into the sun that was on it’s way up. This morning I used the jump rope that I brought along as well as the resistance band and resistance tube. Here is today’s workout:
3 rounds in I heard a weird popping sound coming from the resistance band that I was using. Thank goodness I spotted this in time:
That’s a black eye and busted lip waiting to happen!
This guy went promptly into the trash — thank you dynaband, you served me well!
I spent some time in the sun today, first enjoying the absolute beauty that is the ocean side beach. Once it got a little too windy there, we packed up our things and headed to the pool where we soaked up some more rays. Yes, we were all slathered in SPF and I even spent some time under one of those huge umbrellas!
Dinner — May 10, 2013
I am on dinner duty tonight so I threw together these yummy Gorgonzola stuffed chicken breasts:
They aren’t even cooked and they are looking tasty — bacon has that effect on….everything!
This is a dish that I have made before and you can find the original recipe here. For tonight’s dinner I basically used what I could scrounge up in the fridge. In a small bowl I mixed the Gorgonzola cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. I stuffed each chicken breast with the cheese mixture and some fresh basil. I made sure to season the outside of the chicken before I wrapped it in the delicious, delicious bacon.
I then baked it in a 35o degree oven for about 35 minutes and then broiled on high for about 10 minutes to crisp up the bacon:
I know, I know — I am well aware of the serious lack of vegetables on this plate!! It’s killing me too!!
The pasta on the side is leftovers from last nights dinner. So tasty but I sadly don’t have the recipe to share with you.
Me = Lame!
