Will Christian win Master Chef? maybe ... but I'm hoping for Adrian.

Last night's episode of Hell's Kitchen rewarded the girls with a quick jaunt to a certain casino in Las Vegas ... I wonder. ;)

I picked up an "astronaut chicken" from the grocery last night. I don't remember who coined the term "astronaut chicken" for those plastic pods filled with a whole roasted chicken, but I like it. Yum.

I pulled the chicken from the bones, stashed it in Tupperware and tucked it away in the fridge for easy access for Cro and me. I had a bite this morning but I'm not sure how to count the protein of "one bite" of chicken. I guess I won't worry about accuracy too much on that one.

Why is it that slow roasted chicken tastes better than grilled chicken? And slow cooked pork tastes better than a grilled porkchop? And beef that has been roasted for hours and hours tastes better than quick fired meat? Fire + time + meat = mmm.

Today's meals total 90 protein (60-90 grams per day is ideal for me) and 18 carbs

a bite of chicken breast (2 protein?)
sirloin and ground sausage (24 protein)
.125 cup red beans (3 carbs) 
diced peppadew and habanero peppers (2 carbs)

Quest bar (20 protein and 4 carbs)

sirloin and ground sausage (24 protein)
.125 cup red beans (3 carbs) 
diced peppadew and habanero peppers (2 carbs)

bacon (20 protein)


  1. Oh yeah? I wonder which casino? I missed it by going to bed early. Maybe I can catch it on hulu later.

    Did they go to the swimming pool by chance?

  2. Caesars Palace. I don't recall seeing a pool but they were ooh'ing and aah'ing all around the place.

  3. ah ok, I was wondering if it was the pool at my place, because the signs I saw for the show was directing the crew to the pool.
