Sorry for the delay...

Sorry for the delay in posts...This has been a rather busy week.  How has this week been going for everyone? Paige and I did some running and spinning this week.  I never was a big fan of spinning.. but I decided to give it another go. It was a great workout for our legs nonetheless. It has been a rather cold week in Nashville.  As I'm sitting for 2 hours in the parking lot, otherwise known as Franklin Rd. on the way home from work amidst the winter storm on Wednesday, I see a black beanie bobbing up and down on my left...a-ha! There was a runner... probably laughing at all of us that were STUCK. That's dedication.

Paige is doing some hiking today in Phoenix and the weather in Nashville has been great today! I wanted to share a recipe that Paige and I tried on Monday night.

Chicken Soft Tacos with Sauteed Onions and Apples
Serves 4 (serving size is 2 tacos)

-cooking spray (olive oil preferred)
-1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
-1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
