A little self indulgence

After my exhilarating run yesterday and finding a 25% off coupon for Sports Authority AND a $40 gift certificate to Best Buy I decided to start running again. By start running again I mean buying myself new shoes, an arm band, and head phones! My Mizunos were ruined by the last tough mudder, my head phones were lost 2 weeks ago, and my arm band is old and my iPhone gets soaked when I sweat. Look at my goodies:

Now to a little food and cat tales : ) I am still working on finishing up all the delicious chicken I roasted this weekend so tonights dinner was based around the chicken and extra vegetables I purchased for the soup I made!

Lavender chicken, sweet potato fries, and sautéed kale with garlic and onion. For the sweet potato fries I took half a potato and tossed it with EVOO, smoked paprika, and seasoned salt. They went in the oven for 10 minutes @ 425 degrees. After 10 minutes flip over the fries and cook for another 8 minutes. To reheat the chicken I added it into the oven with the fries right after I flipped the fries. Now onto the kale, I boiled the kale for about 5 or 6 minutes, meanwhile I sautéed the onions and garlic with some salt and pepper. Once the kale was wilted I added it to the pan and tossed in some extra seasoning. And voila! Dinner is served. It was delicious!

Jax thought so too…

And some one is in time out.

Well all, happy Friday, catch ya on the flip side : )
