The kitchen is closing early tonight

It’s a little before 6pm on Monday and I’m closing my kitchen for the day! On Monday nights, I’m trying to take the Sweat Box class offered at my gym at 7:30 pm. This makes for a bit of a strange eating schedule, but is so worth it – this class rocks! :D

I typically eat breakfast before work, then a snack around 11, workout at noon, lunch after that, mid-afternoon snack and dinner later at night. On Mondays, it’s all out of whack. My mid-morning snack usually gets eliminated as I patiently wait for lunch (if I bring it to work, I often dig in around 11:30) and then dinner is super early so I can digest before class. Today I went home for lunch to assemble a crock pot dinner, so it was ready for me at 5:20 when I got home. I hope it digests quickly – I got some sweating to do soon ;)

BREAKFAST

A maple cranberry goat cheese filled muffin (say that 10 times fast ;) ), 1/2 cup of 4% cottage cheese and a sweet ripe persimmon + coffee

I did a little research for crock pot recipes and found this one from Cooking Light for beef daube provencal. This recipe was featured on their “All Time Best Recipes.” Sounded promising :mrgreen: There was quite a bit of prep-work but then I could leave for work and it cooked itself. Perfect!

The beef was super tender. I liked this… I don’t know about the best recipe ever, but both Adam and I enjoyed it :)
