Bruschetta Chicken

I started back at work today! Although not really considering I have off Friday and Monday. I had all 3 kids since their school is still out of power. We had a fun day starting out with breakfast at the diner, a stroll near a pond, library and finally a park! You have to find lots of things to do when the house is without power. I came home and wanted to make another recipe I found on pinterest, bruschetta chicken. It's super easy (only 4 ingredients) yet very sophisticated at the same time...

  • chicken breasts
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • mozzarella cheese
-Grill the chicken.

-Once one side is completely grilled and the second is almost, add the toppings.

-Allow the cheese to melt and then you're done!

-You could also marinate this in a sun-dried tomato type dressing before hand for some extra flavor. We are on a tight budget over here and I didn't want to buy a whole thing of dressing that we would probably never use again so we just flavored it with some salt and pepper after :)

We paired the chicken with some leftover potatoes and veggies from last night. And for dessert, goji berries! I haven't had these in so long and really need to start eating them again. They are so so good for you.

Also, I'll give you a little update on our marathon training. It is going well! For the most part we are right on track with our training schedule, however have been slacking the past week a bit. We did a short run tonight (3 miles) and have our long run (we are up to 13 miles) on Saturday. We really can't believe we are running a half marathon just for fun! Hopefully all goes well, however our legs have become super tired and sore around mile 10 recently on long runs.

My two boys. I love them!

We're pumped about our 4 day weekend. Tomorrow we are sleeping in (not running) and going to the movies! Be back sometime this weekend :)

Kathy-It's hard to describe what Goji berries taste like-they're not that sweet actually. I wouldn't say they taste as good as strawberries, but they are worth eating for the health benefits :)I've only seen them at Whole Foods. Do you have one near you?

We're going to see "Crazy, Stupid Love." Seen it?

I've been wanting to get into running and would love to train for a marathon. What resources have you used? What do you use to layout the workouts you have to do?
