Last week I told you about my talking to squirrels. Now I have photo proof of the little critters’ antics to try to prove that I’m not crazy(er). This past weekend, during the stretch of beautiful weather, I caught our little darlings eating the tulip bulbs right out of the container.
So bold! So brash! Of course, I sent Lucy out to the yard to scare the little guy out of his reverie.
Like I mentioned last week, I am trying to eat healthier and lose some weight, so I’m altering some recipes in order to stay within the healthy eating guidelines I’m using.
The recipe calls for bone-in chicken pieces, but in order to lighten up the dish, I decided to use chicken breasts. Also, instead of using 1/2 c. olive oil, I cut down the amount to 2 T. Also instead of honey, I used Splenda.
I found a zester last weekend for $7.99 at Home Goods. This worked perfectly–much better than my old one. You zest it on one side, and the plastic holder collects the zest–even with a measurement.
And it came out like this:
I served it with couscous and cooked spinach.
It ended up being a delicious, healthy meal!
This is another fabulous recipe from Anna W.–a great cook and great friend. Thank you, Anna!
