Your Lighter Side...: Chili Cheese Tots

"Ohhh My Ganny" as my friend and I would say way back in the day for something wonderful. I can't wait to make this. You will be amazed at what you can make with cauliflower!! Just the other day I made faux fried rice with cauliflower and gave my friend a bite. She had no clue there was no rice in the dish!! I'll have to post that recipe later.

This blog, Your Lighter Side, is amazing and I get many recipes from there. Please check it out.

Garlic Rosemary Chicken

Back in late May I decided it was time to lose some weight. I've tried this for about 8 years with no weight loss. I decided to try out the Atkins diet and after a few weeks I could tell the inches where disappearing. I've lost over 20lbs and several inches and I'm still going. I have till June 2012 to lose the weight I want. We are heading to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and the Caribbean so I want to look great for the photos and my new bathing suit LOL

Chicken is a big staple in our meal planning and I just love Rosemary and garlic with chicken. Please try this recipe and tell me how you like it.

Garlic Rosemary Lemon Chicken

2 sprigs of rosemary (use a knife to cut Rosemary into tiny pieces)

5 cloves of garlic

1 large lemon squeezed for the juice

2 tbsp of olive oil

1 tbsp of white balsamic vinegar

Place your chicken into a bowl or large zip lock bag.

Pour marinade over chicken.

Place chicken into fridge for 1 - 2 hours.

We like to bbq the chicken but it would also come out great if you baked it.
