  • Tonight's dinner... I'm so pleased with it myself:)

    Usually on weeknights, I just throw something together for dinner or eat leftovers from the weekend, but I was out of town over the weekend & decided to make something nice tonight, even if it was Monday!

    I baked a garnet yam for 60 minutes at 400 degrees, just washed it, poked holes in it & put it on a rack over a broiler pan lined with foil to make an easier cleanup. Meanwhile I sprinkled a boneless chicken breast with garlic powder (skip this if it bothers you), rosemary & sea salt & put it into a ziplock bag to "marinate" for the hour in the fridge. Then I cooked it for about 50 minutes at 400 degrees until the thermometer said "chicken".

    *I did have to microwave the yam for 1 minute to reheat it. You could probably cook them at the same time, but I thought the yam would take longer to bake.

    Meanwhile, I mixed organic baby romaine lettuce with chopped dates & crumbled feta cheese. Then drizzled it with pear juice (Looza brand) mixed with canola oil & tossed it. It made a really nice salad. If you can tolerate thin sliced almonds or blueberries, that would be good on this also.

    For beverage, I put a splash of blueberry juice (Trader Joe's 100% blueberry) into ice water.

    So, that was dinner! I felt like I got a nice amount of nutrients without too many calories, too much fat or weird ingredients I wouldn't use again. Enjoy!

      My thermometer refuses to talk to me under any circumstances! ::::giggle::::

      Your dinner sounds delicious! I totally love baked yams with just a little butter and salt.

      I was rearranging cabinets this week and found my rice steamer in the back of a bottom shelf. I cooked rice that way last night for dinner and it was delicious --- no more minute rice here.

        I am also a Yam lover. If Hubby is not home for dinner, I have been known to bake a very large one for my dinner. Yummy good.

            Kadi I had to laugh at the "chicken" themometre comment also.
            Thanks for the idea to put blueberry juice in my water that's a great idea for a nice summer beverage.
            Daughter your faith has made you well,go in peace, and be healed of your disease.(Mark 5:34)

            Tried:
            Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
            Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
            CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
            Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
            Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
            Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

            Take:
            Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
            Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
            Naproxen:for pain as needed
            Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
            Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
            Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
            Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

              Kadi always seems to have some good ideas and alot of common sense. That dinner sounds delicious. It's funny how we have to call that "marinating". Not the way I would love to marinate!
