New Recipes

I feel like I have been making the same recipes for dinner since Tony and I moved in together. It gets old pretty fast. Think about how quickly you would get sick of raviolis (from Costco), roast beef dip sandwiches, chicken and rice, carne asada burritos, and turkey burgers. Just typing all these meals is making me sick of them. :) Although it sure makes grocery shopping quite easy...and quick. I need some excitment with my meals!! I eat the same foods all week long. I have an Atkins Peanut Butter bar for breakfast and a yummy ;) protein shake Tony makes me have because we work out like crazy, I guess I need more protein for these huge muscles I'm gaining ;) For lunch I eat salami, cheese and crackers and an orange a little later for snack. Ok seriously it gets so old. I actually get a little cranky because my meals are so boring. As people who are close to me know, when I don't eat or when there is nothing good to eat, I cant get pretty bitchy.
So, I have decided to find new recipes. It is now a mission!! I have emailed some family and friends to see what kinds of things they cook and looked online for healthy recipes. I am in luck...woo hoo!! Well, I guess I shouldn't say luck until I try each one and find out what Tony thinks. It doesn't do me any good to make a meal for a second time and Tony not like it. So my test is to ask if he will eat the leftovers. Good huh? If he says yes, then I know I did good...if he says no, then that meal has failed me. Last night was the first night to try one of these healthy recipes I found online. I have to say I was a little nervous, but he liked it. YAY!! I am 1 for 1 :)

Here is the healthy recipe:
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 oz. pkg ranh dressing mix
2 cups rice crispy cereal
1/4 cup parmesean cheese
2 eggs whites

Mix rice crispy cereal, ranch mix and parmesean cheese together in bowl. Dip chicken in egg whites, then in the cereal mixture to coat evenly. Arrange chicken on greased baking sheet. Baked until golden brown: 35-40 minutes.
(tip: put foil on the baking sheet or the cereal and chicken will stick)

Side Dish:
A box of Noodle-Roni Fetticini Alfredo that I added some pepper, garlic salt and parmesean cheese to because without it the flavoring was a little bland.

I have a whole list of new recipes to try, and if anyone wants to share some more Im all for it! :)
