Rule #71: No Excuses

Okay, I admit it. I've been slacking on the blog front. So I'm (wo)manning up and saying it, I have no excuses.

Except... it is Shark Week. Mark and I have been pretty glued to the Discovery Channel, not going to lie. It's just so educational. So far, Jaws Comes Home has been my favorite find this year, but the week is young.

I mean come on, what's not to love about that?

Anyway, I will also admit that Mark and I didn't do much cooking last week, so any blog posting I would have done wouldn't have involved food. And, let's be honest, the food posts are always the best.

Last night, we got back in the kitchen finally. Since this past weekend was a food fest of sorts, we decided a light dinner was probably our best bet. So we went with salad. Since I am a fruit freak, Mark was nice enough to agree to a chicken salad absolutely covered in fruit. We did throw in some feta cheese also. The result was nothing short of perfect.

I basically just put every kind of fruit in my fridge onto this salad while Mark worked his magic on the George Foreman grill. While Mark manned the grill, I cut up (and ate as a pre-meal snack) lots of strawberries, blueberries and black grapes. (side note: Market Street has the best produce) 

We used the chicken seasoning I have to add flavor to the chicken and, let me tell you, it was some of the best chicken we've had.

Mark snapped a shot of me adding the chicken to our salad.

Of course I had to add in Mark's artistic shot. My boyfriend is such a good photographer.

I promise to take better care of this blog. Nobody likes a slacker. Live every week like it's Shark Week.
