Lately I’ve been making all kinds of new dishes and trying new spices and sauces. These simple tweaks have made a huge difference in my enjoyment of old standby proteins like chicken breasts. For example, yesterday I had a grilled chicken breast and brown rice, only this time I put a tablespoon of Sriracha hot sauce on the plate for dipping. This simple addition turned a mundane meal into something I thoroughly enjoyed.

I’ve done very little Asian cooking in my lifetime, but that’s an area I’ve been exploring lately with fantastic results. There are some very healthy Asian dishes that taste amazing and are not at all hard to make (such as the stir fry I made last week). Tomorrow night I’m going to prepare a Thai Satay recipe that was recently posted by May 2009 Transformation Spotlight of the Month recipient “Phoenix”. I’ve never had Satay, so I’m really looking forward to trying it!

My week off from training continues today. I guess I’m enjoying the rest, but I am definitely missing my afternoon workouts.

Today’s going to be a busy day at work: we’re turning up a new circuit and bringing an entire apartment complex online. Ideally all the planning and preparation we’ve done would make the actual rollout take about an hour, but that never happens. Three companies are involved, and when something doesn’t work right there’s always a lot of finger-pointing and wasted time. I have a feeling by the end of the day I’m going to be seriously thinking about that cabin by the lake again…
