Wake up it's Monday

Mondays are hard.  If you know me, you'll often here me say that I spend Mondays recovering from my weekend.  Since I am a SAHM, I find it funny I am like this.  I have a lot planned for today and I will hope do it all.

This weekend was low key.  The hubs wasn't feeling good since he completed his 7th round of chemotherapy on Friday.  I was proud of him for taking it easy and listening to his body that clearly wanted sleep.  While the hubs slept, the boys and I played outside on Saturday.  Our play was interrupted by the growing number of wasps feeding on our grass.  Due to this, the hubs sprayed wasp spray on Sunday that kills the protein the wasps feed on.  By the afternoon, all the wasps were still around. Hmmm.. Any suggestions?

Sunday night we had a BBQ, our first at our new house, crazy I know but we've been busy.  I made, marinated the chicken while the hubs BBQ'd it.  It was sooo good.
The chicken was served with Whole Corn and Goat Cheese Salad.

Balsamic Dijon Chicken
2 chicken breast, 6 thighs (without bones) all organic
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of balsamic vinaigrette
1 tablespoon of Grey Poupon
4 cloves of garlic chopped
4 stems of Rosemary
a pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper

Combine all ingredients, then pour over the chicken (either in a dish or plastic bag) and marinate for up to 4 hours.

Boiled Corn
In a large pot, fill half of the pot with water
Add a pinch of salt
Cook on high until water boils
Drop in corn for about 2 minutes and it's done.
Serve warm

Goat Cheese Salad
5 oz. of Goat Cheese
4 handfuls of Organic Mixed Greens
1/3 cup of red onion (thinly sliced)
1 cup of tomatoes (I prefer cherry)
add more veggies you like. For example, I used half of a avocado, and a cup of chopped asparagus.
Sourdough Bread (cut up the bread and then broil in the oven for a couple of minutes - be sure to keep on eye on the bread so it doesn't burn)

Microwave Goat Cheese in a bowl for 30 sec. to 1 min.
Then mix with balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil
Pour over salad and toss together.

Happy Eating friends!
How was your weekend?  Make anything yummy?
