it’s Macro May!

Posted on | May 1, 2012 | 10 Comments

Expect to be subjected to multiple random photographs!

I recently discovered the dry rub.  Can I just say – this is so easy and SOOO good!  The above collection of spices is for Jamacian Jerk dry rub, recipe found here.  Nothing too outrageous, I had all the ingredients on hand.  Slapped it on chicken breasts, let them sit for several hours in the fridge and then roasted in the oven.


Also – folks have wandered over from Vicki’s oatmeal post and I don’t think I ever posted the recipe here, so here ’tis:

My mix is:  3 cups regular oatmeal (not quick), 1/2 cup sliced almonds, 1/2 cup
walnut bits, 4 packets NuNaturals NuStevia (other brands might be sweeter
or less sweet) and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  I put it all in a quart size baggie and take it to work – put about 1/2 cup in a coffee cup and add hot water.  The mix lasts me about seven days, and I’ve calculated the nutrients to be 194 calories, 26 carbs, 7 fat, 7 protein.

In case anyone else comes looking.  ;o)
