This morning my husband started to run and he was having significant pain in the arch of one of his feet. He is bumming. He has been so excited to be running and this is going to set him back a little. I suggested we ride our bikes instead this morning. It was good. We rode 5 miles in about a half an hour. I did my best to pedal constantly...only coasted going down the hill. Tonight we are going to the gym. He has been lifting weights and while he does that I am going to see if there is class I can join. That should be interesting considering how not coordinated I am :)
Watching our calories really forces me to be better about meal planning. This morning I put some chicken breast in a marinade - basil, garlic, pepper, balsamic vinegar (pomegranate flavor) and a touch of olive oil. It will spend the day in the fridge getting super yummy and will be grilled tonight for dinner. The basil is from our garden. Love, love, love fresh herbs. If there is one thing I believe everyone should grow I think it should be herbs. What a difference it can make for the simplest of ingredients.

First picking of green beans from our garden. We will definitely be having these for dinner. It won't be quite enough so I will have to supplement with store beans...gasp! We love them cooked crisp tender on the grill. I think they will go great with the basil/garlic chicken.

I would love a bruschetta with this meal. Bread can be a downfall for me though. Maybe I can go to the bakery and just get a hoagie roll. It would be enough for the two of us without tempting leftovers.
Have a great day!!!
