It's been oh I have 4 months until we go to FL... still have 3 months until our trip to FL... I can get in shape in 2 months before we go to FL.  Now it's oh no, we go to FL in two weeks... I have to put on a swim suit?!  Thank goodness we hit up the JCrew outlet this weekend and I invested heavily in cute coverups and maxi-dresses.  But there's still time to cram, right?  We're trying our best to eat healthy.. detox during the week, still eat healthy on the weekends.

Thanks to my dear friend Joanna's Pinterest board, I made a few new recipes for us to enjoy this week. First up, Sarcastic Cooking's Blackened Chicken with Cilantro Lime Quinoa.  This turned out quite tasty!  I pretty much followed her recipe to the t so go check it out.

For lunch, I made this Asian Slaw with Ginger-Peanut Dressing from Once Upon a Chef. Also pretty tasty.  One pointer, take her instructions to buy prepared coleslaw mix and shredded carrots... or at least buy the shredded carrots.  Those suckers are hard to shred by hand (surprisingly I didn't have a kitchen gadget to tackle the task) and I ended up with WAY more cabbage than we'll ever be able to eat.  But on the positive side, it was about time for me to buy cabbage... 30 years old and had never bought cabbage.
