Wine Night...

WOW...long couple of days. I have been on the road meeting with clients and Ryan has been working 12 hr+ days! Good Lord...

The good thing about being on the road is sometimes I get to see the people I love. I stayed over in Santa Rosa last night which was so fun. I got to see my sister and my brother in law (Mike) for a couple of hours. Christy and I went out to a great Thai Food place while Mike played softball. Before dinner we went on a walk with Christy's good friend Megan (and my friend too!).

I started this morning with a quick 3 mile run. Knowing I was going to be on my butt for most of the day driving around I wanted to get in a some type of workout.

Fast forward to the end of my day...I stopped in Santa Cruz (after being in Monterey) and visited a bit with my Mommy. Then I cruised to the West Side to spend some time with my lovely mom-in-law and my amazingly beautiful sister-in-law. Sooo good to see them! I feel like I haven't seen all of them in forever but it's only been a couple of weeks!

I rushed home to get dinner going so it would be ready for Ryan when he got home. Tonight's menu: Pesto Stuffed Chicken with Brown Rice.

*The rice wasn't ready in time for the pic.

-Two Chicken Breasts (all natural)
-1/2 of lemon. Thinly sliced and layed on top of the chicken breast
-1 tomato (seeded)
-Julienned basil
-1 cup of dry brown rice (mixed with 2 cups water in rice cooker)

*1 1/2 cup of whole basil leaves
*1 TBSP of H2O
*3 BIG cloves of garlice
*1/4 cup of Reggiano Parmigiano
*1-2 TBSP of walnuts
*juice from 1/2 small lemon
*pinch of salt

(blended in a cuisinart!)

I butterflied the chicken and stuffed it with pesto. I sauteed 1 fresh cut tomato with 1 clove of garlic and used that to top the chicken. Then I garnished with freshly grated parmesean cheese and basil.

And of course...RED WINE!!! Another amazing Alapay wine tonight. We finished the whole bottle. It was just one of those nights...
