OH YUMMY!!! Since I am a chicken girl these days... this sounds heavenly. Did I taste as good as it sounds/looks?

Yah know, I think the weightloss thing for me is all mindset. I made my mind up I was going to be healthy and haven't really looked back. I guess being scared into it helped! LOL However, I am finding it is so easy to lose when you stick to 'whole foods'. That really cuts down on most of the things that cause me to gain weight.

As always, I love your blog and your recipes. THANK YOU!!
