Weight Watchers Lunch Club.
A couple ladies in my offices and I began a lunch club. This week is our first week.
I’m pretty excited about it!
There are four members. Each day one of us cooks a “weight watchers” meal.
Today was my day. I made tomato-basil chicken with an oriental salad. It was delish (if I do say so myself)!!
However, getting it all put together was a little challenging.
Theoretically, we choose meals that are easy to make and can be re-heated (because we don’t have a full kitchen). I decided to make the chicken on my George Foreman grill at the office.
Rewind to Last night:
I went to a friend’s birthday dinner (an hour’s drive) and I didn’t get home until way past my bed time. So of course I thought: “I will get up early, thaw and marinate the chicken, cook the salad toppings, and make the dressing.” I was ambitious.
So due to the fact that I stayed up late, I was VERY sleepy this morning and hit my snooze FOUR times!! I forgot all about my domestic duties! By the time I remembered, I was walking out the door!
My chicken was still frozen people!
I spent my entire drive to work trying to come up with an excuse or a plan to avoid being kicked out of WWLC. If you know me, you understand how important it is that I always “have it all together.”
Actually, I always spend lots of time planning and making lists. I can’t believe that I didn’t think ahead and get the dish ready before the party!
Anyway, I snuck out of the office (drove like a mad woman) and went home. I speed thawed the chicken and whipped up that salad and toppers. I was back at work in 30 minutes. No one even realized that I forgot!
I felt like Rachel Ray…except my 30 minute meal included driving time!!
