Good morning everyone! So I have to confess that dinner last night rocked it!! We had BBQ chicken. Which was basically just chicken covered in BBQ sauce and baked in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Yum! Served up with a side of red potatoes and broccoli. Dinner heaven! But what I want to share is my easy, never fails to please, potato recipe!
EASIEST RED POTATOES EVER
- 12-16 small red potatoes
- 2-4 tsp of butter
- 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1 1/2 tsp dried chives
Thoroughly wash red potatoes. Then place in a pot with enough water to cover the potatoes by about 2 inches.
Cook the red potatoes over medium high heat until they are easily pierced by a fork but still are a bit firm, about 20 minutes. Once the potatoes are done drain immediately, set aside and cover them to keep warm.
Microwave the butter until melted (about 5 to 10 seconds). Then stir in the dried parsley and the dried chives into the melted butter and then pour the butter mixture over the warm potatoes tossing to coat the potatoes.

How many people wear a heart rate monitor when they work out?
I do and I LOVE it. I sport a Polar F6 and it is the best watch I have found. I totally rely on it to check my heart rate levels during my workout especially when trying to stay in certain zones. After you workout, it also tells you how many calories you burned, your average and maximum heart rate (and what percentage of your max heart rate you were working). Plus the watch talks with my computer and I can upload all my stats each week to compare progress and chart my workouts. It is a pretty cool gadget…considering I don’t consider myself a gadget girl! I sell this out of my Opensky store…if anyone is interested!
Okay, let’s go Greek! At the risk of being exiled from the blogging community I need to say that my favorite Greek Yogurt is the plain Fage 0%! I LOVE IT! I know, I know everyone else is on the Chobani bandwagon but I am a Fage girl all the way! I love the plain flavor and then adding in my own mix-ins! So yum!
Are you a Greek yogurt fan?
I also need to tell everyone THANK YOU for all the sweet comments on my legs yesterday! What is funny is that honestly my legs have historically been my least favorite part of my body. I guess I have always just thought they were a little too big for my small body due to all the running I do. But yesterday made me realize that I need to EMBRACE my legs and be thankful that they are so strong and allow me to run like I do! Thanks for giving me some perspective!
What is your FAVORITE part about your body?
