Day 23 - The Plan day 5, apricot chipolte glazed chicken

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Challenges failed: no dairy (1oz chevre on my lunch salad)
All others met.

To day we were out and about town, my Jeep needed an oil change and we were in and out of the office of our immigration agent. This afternoon we had to wait an hour till she could see us. There is a slight problem with DH's visa (FM3) - last year he was a day or so late filing and despite paying the fine, they "reset" his visa to year 1, so he is now a year behind me. After 4 years you get to apply for "permanente" which allows you to work (like a US green card - been there, done that... ) At least now we can get visas for more than a year, which really helps - no more yearly renewals - pictures, copies, bank statement (which have to be translated) and agent fees, Mine will be for 2 year and DH had to get 3 years to fulfill his 4 year requirement.
At least we should be good for a while!

Today's meals:

Breakfast - flax seed granola with blueberries and a splash of coconut milk

Lunch - green salad with 1 oz goat cheese (chevre) and pumpkin seeds drizzled with citrus olive oil, bowl of spice veggie soup

Snack - 1 oz of 72% dark chocolate and a pot of Earl Grey tea.

Dinner - 3 oz apricot and chipolte glazed chicken, romaine, carrot and beet salad, sauteed zucchini and onion with basil

The glaze was nice and spicy, the chipolte gave it a little smoky flavor as well and was great with the chicken and veggies.

    okay, I need the recipe for the glaze! Please can you either send it to me or post it and let me know, thanks! Sounds delicious! I usually eat 90 % dark chocolate and it is VERY strong so a little goes a long way and yes I do like to have it with tea sometimes! Yes I have been known to dip it! ( oops!)

Thanks so much for posting and sharing and for the great pic! emoticon

    Do you buy coconut milk in a carton, or drain it out of a fresh coconut? Just curious, as I have not tried it before. I do like almond milk, especially the dark chocolate.

    The cheese did not work well for you?
