I won’t be posting all of my meals every day. I tend to run with the same thing for a few days and I can’t see how oh she had a sandwich for lunch again could be very interesting. Of course I’ll post the wonderful meals I do have, but don’t expect everything I eat to go up. That’s silly.
Because of the cold weather I haven’t worn my vibrams in a while so I thought it would be better to walk in them and make sure I’m acclimated before I start running. It’s still really muddy outside so I went to my apartment complex’s fitness center and hopped on the treadmill with a magazine. I started at 2.8, which was a reasonably fast walk, and hoped to do 30 minutes. After fifteen my feet were crying so I hopped off. I didn’t want to overdo it and I was glad I didn’t try to start running right off. I think part of the problem was that I wore my feet killing heels yesterday. Friendly footwear for the next few days.
Dinner, however, was life changing.
I had originally planned on making potato soup for dinner, but after the wonderfully warm day I wasn’t really feeling it. All I could think about was cajun chicken with millet. Always go with what you crave. Unless it’s a whole gallon of ice cream, that sounds like a bad idea.
Millet is my favorite grain right now, I just discovered it in the last few months and I LOVE it.
I combined 1/2 cup millet with 2 cups water in the rice cooker and let it do its thing. I like to cook my millet at a 1:4 ratio instead of a 1:3 ratio because it makes it super creamy. About halfway through cooking I diced some chicken, a green onion, and some red bell pepper and sautéed them with some cajun spice.
When the millet was finished, I stirred in some buffalo sauce and grated some extra sharp cheddar into the rice cooker and stirred it all together.
It was wonderful! I loved the mix of the flavors. I’m totally doing this again.

Now I’m curled up with my heat pack and a cup of chai tea (my guilty pleasure) and I’m going to talk to the boy until it’s time for bed 🙂
