Oscar Night Lamb

Hope everyone had a good week! Mine was pretty good, though I missed boot camp on Friday ( went to see the Raptors play basketball in TO ) and my run on Saturday am and, come to think of it, my trip to the gym on Thursday ( due to a hair appt ). I did teach step twice, made the gym once and boot camp on Tuesday. I still need to cut back on my extra snacking and start tracking. Maybe this week?!

I've tried a few things from the new Cooking Light (March 2010) including tonight's Roast Leg of Lamb with Chile-Garlic Sauce. I had it with roasted potatoes and Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpeas, and Olives. Everything was delicious! The lamb was so good and I loved, loved, loved the chile-garlic sauce. The sauce definitely has a bite to it. I had sambal oelek on hand already, so I didn't have to so any extra shopping for the recipe other than for the pound of lamb which I got at Whole Foods.

The roasted cauliflower I only had a few bites of, because truth be told, I forgot it in the oven. oops! lol. It was a little crispy, but still tasty. I really like the salty taste of the olives (not sure if I uses the right type, but figured it didn't matter all that much) with the crispy balls of chickpeas. Maybe they shouldn't have been that crispy? ;P They were good, though! I was drawn to trying this recipe since we keep getting califlower in the organic delivery. I eat it raw, but my family isn't that into it.

I think this week I'm going to make up a plan to work toward for the summer. This week I'm also going to try to (a) drink more water (b) get to sleep earlier and (c) not snack after 9pm. I'll lyk how it goes when (d) I blog more regularly! ;)
