Last time on As the Fit-World Turns…JavaChick’s Husband agreed to make a more serious effort to eat a healthy diet…
Not that we eat a completely unhealthy diet as it is. I do make an effort to make sure we’re getting our fruits & veggies, but we could both stand to shed some pounds and too many treats are creeping in for that to happen. Being consistent is hard work, and it’s even harder when only one of us is making a conscious effort.
This week has gone really well and Husband has actually surprised me more than once. He seems to be really trying and thinking about what he can do which makes me happy. Now if we can just get the hang of this consistency thing.
Friday night is usually our grocery shopping night and most of the time we go out to dinner. Tonight we brought dinner home from Costco.
We saw these chicken burgers and decided to give them a try.
You may recognize the brand name if you are a fan of the Looney Spoons/Crazy Plates/Eat Shrink & Be Merry cookbooks (and their show on Food Network Canada).
We don’t often buy Costco prepared foods, but we have tried their Greek salad and liked it, so Husband was looking in the cooler for that and he spied a quinoa salad. They happened to be giving out samples of it, so we tried it, we liked it, and we brought it home, along with some 9-Grain Ciabatta buns. It should be noted that I’d fed Husband different quinoa salads for the previous two nights; shocked that he voluntarily suggested it for the third night in a row.
Dinner is served!
I will not often agree to buy chicken burgers, and I’m not sure why I went along with it this time. Maybe something about the sound of “fire roasted vegetables’. I am very picky about textures and usually do no like ground chicken or turkey. But I have to say: these were tasty burgers! Frank & Zappa also approved of the tidbits that I fed them.
It made for a quick meal after a busy week and our evening of grocery shopping, and we enjoyed it while watching last week’s episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day. My kind of Friday evening. It’s a wild life I lead.
Then later on I got to watch Frank chase a fox away from our yard.
What did I tell ya? Exciting life indeed.
