I'm sorry, I said burger patty, not cow patty.

Tuesday greetings to my 10’s of followers! I had a whirlwind of a weekend. I won’t bore you with EVERY detail but I will bore you with several. I ate dinner with my parents on Friday night. You know, for years now, I have LOVED Buffalo Wild Wings. I have supported them on and off my diet because they have some healthy options. Mostly, I get their Garden Burger which WAS a nice sized soy burger that they grilled and put on a big bun with all the burger fixins. I love this burger. I’m not a vegetarian but it’s worth it to me to skip the meat because the bread fills you up. As always, I ordered the garden burger on Friday night and much to my chagrin, the burger had changed. It looked like a straight up hockey puck. It was burned around the edges and was a very unfortunate brown. I could tell immediately that this was a different patty. I decided to go ahead and eat it because a) I was starving and b) it wasn’t the fault of my server so instead of sending it back (I wish I would’ve), I went ahead and ate it. It was a black bean patty. I hate all forms of beans but I find black beans to be the least offensive. It was very meal-y with tiny bits of random vegetables stuck in there. It wasn’t a horrific taste, just a bad texture…and terribly over cooked. Because I will always and forever be fat in my heart, I ate the whole thing. For once, I wish I would STOP eating when I don’t like something because this veggie burger not only tainted my love for BWW, it set a very traumatic tone for my stomach the rest of the weekend. If I’m being honest, I’m still not the same. I’d say it gave me food poisoning or a least a touch of it…if you can have a touch.

Saturday morning I got up and did my usual morning exercise and grocery shopping and helped my Oma out with a couple of things. I went to bed pretty early Saturday night so I could get up at 4:30 to run in order to hit the road to Chattanooga by 6:30. Dad, David, Lisa and myself trekked on up to see my Grandpa post his heart surgery. He seemed to be doing really well! He’s still got a few issues they want to look at before he can go home which he is pretty upset about but overall, it looks to be a success. I wish him a speedy recovery! I didn’t have much time to do anything Sunday night but eat and go to bed. Those kind of weekends knock the energy right of you but I plan on resting a bit at some point soon.

This recipe was called Chicken Rollatini with Prosciutto and Cheese. The only thing is…as I do a lot…I changed it up a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t DISLIKE Prosciutto but I don’t see what all the fuss is about. I much prefer the taste of ham and bacon…so that’s what I did. Instead of buying a whole pack if Prosciutto that I didn’t need, I used the deli meat I had in the fridge. The recipe also calls for provolone but again, I didn’t need a whole pack, so I used the fat free shredded cheese I had. You can also put onion and garlic in this. All you do is take a thin chicken breast, dunk it in olive oil, then in bread crumbs. Lay the chicken flat and add the meat, cheese and onion on one half and then roll the other half of the chicken over and tuck it under the bottom. Place it in a sprayed casserole dish and bake it at 450 for 20 minutes. It comes out crunchy on the outside but tender on the inside. It was DELICIOUS! I kind of impressed myself actually.

That’s all I had for today.

I’m getting excited about my summer trips!!!

Y’all have a good week!
