Day 17: Rest and Restoration - Braised Chicken and Baby Artichokes

5 Thoughts

  • For those of you who are new to this blog, and to my life. Here’s a little background about my post-stress decompression. After a period of high stress, once everything is done, like this past week, my body gives up. It crashes into a heap of low fever, utter exhaustion, and major case of the munchies.
  • Blog.
  • Eat.
  • TV. “Are you the Keymaster?”
  • Nap.

As tired as I was, cooking does make me happy. So I made the braised chicken recipe I tested for work on Day 1 of this challenge. Delicious!


English Breakfast tea.

Second Breakfast

That other half of the Chipotle Steak bowl.


Mixed fruit.


Pasta salad with ham and Italian dressing.

I figured since I’m going to make pasta to go with the braised chicken later on today anyway, plus I have another slice of ham left, I might as well make the lunch too.

Afternoon Tea



Braised chicken thighs with Baby Purple Artichokes.


Haagen Dazs strawberry ice cream.

As it turns out, when I wasn’t looking, Brandon ate ALL of the Caramel Cone one. Bastard…


For those who just now joined in, here’s why I’m going on “The Hobbit Diet” of eating seven times a day for a month.
