Ridiculously Easy Dinner

The Crock Pot Mexican Chicken was terrific! And it was great coming home late in the day to the smell of chicken and chilies, and the promise of dinner waiting. I didn't make it to the grocer Friday afternoon for limes and cilantro (crazy insane afternoon), but the chicken was still pretty darned tasty with fresh pea sprouts and avocado. Maybe I can get it all together next time and add a little salsa or a bit of pico de gallo, too. I think this one's a winner.

Spa Water

Enjoying my yummy tangerine cucumber spa water this morning. This lemon cucumber water includes lemon verbena, which would be a wonderful addition to my herb garden! 

Come on, warm weather!

School is absolutely hammering me this week. I think I would surely cave were it not for the two of you. I just wouldn't even be doing this were it not for your encouragement and knowing that you're counting on me for the same. MWA!!

We're invited to a Superbowl Party tomorrow night. Five hours of football, ripe with opportunity to miscombine. Yikes. Any ideas? I need some help!

OMG! I DID IT!! I just opened my first young coconut! Oh, this is just divine! Maggie, please tell me how to make the macaroons?

Sorry, I've got to get back to the kitchen, that coconut is calling me ...

Another yummy combination for an afternoon pick-me-up - apple/pineapple/ginger/lemon/pomegranate juice.
It's delicious. It's pink. What more could you ask?
This is just crazy amazing. I've lost twelve pounds in seventeen days. (This is day seventeen, right?) Twelve pounds! Is that crazy? I know I don't have to tell either of you what this is like, that I'm eating avocados, and putting olive oil on my salads, I'm drinking juice all morning long, eating dates and walnuts and Lara Bars and chocolate ... I'm eating like crazy, I'm almost never hungry, and I've lost twelve pounds! 

I know part of feeling really good comes from 'feeling clean'. (Maybe you know what I'm talking about.) I just feel like there's space inside my body and not like every cell is bursting at the seams. Plenty of room for food and energy to flow and for releasing toxins from every cell.
