Tourist Thursday

Posted: June 9, 2011 in General

Last Saturday turned out to be one of the best days I’ve had in quite some time. I am sure with just one sentence in you’re wondering what in the world does that have to do with Tourist Thursday. Well…I decided to be a tourist in my own town and went downtown Charleston with LO! We had a blast between silly comments and food and being spontaneous.

We started out going downtown Charleston to Market Street. We decided to start at one end and work our way down to the other end.

I did have an agenda which was to locate some more pirate finger puppets, but that was unsuccessful. What was successful was…


and of course, many snapshots along the way…

Definitely recommend trying the praline from downtown and if you’re real adventurous then I’d recommend the Carriage Ride.

Then when I got back I decided to head out to the apartment complex pool.

Over all the best day of just living one day at a time.

Last night I decided to cook something that would be semi-healthy since I am trying to get inspired to lose some weight over the next couple of months. It turned out pretty tasty and satisfying.


Lean Chicken Breasts (cut up)

Garlic Salt

Ground Pepper

Canola oil

Soy Sauce

Whole grain spaghetti pasta

Light Alfredo Sauce

Sliced carrots

How to make:

Cook pasta to preferred texture. Sautee carrots in soy sauce for a couple of minutes. Sautee chicken in canola oil, garlic salt, ground pepper until done. Use a little bit of Soy sauce for some flavor at the end before taking the chicken out. Mix in  2 tablespoons of Light Alfredo sauce into the desired amount of pasta. Add chicken and carrots to the top. Serve immediately!
