Caribbean Jerk

Ahh summer Friday’s in the office, what a treat.  Our office does summer hours (work an extra hour Mon-Thurs and take a half day or half day plus vacation day on Friday’s), so half the people aren’t here and the other half only work a half day.  Unless of course you are me and have the distinct treat of not being able to participate in summer hours because you’re not a permanent employee, no matter that I’ve worked here for 2.5 years.  Not that I’m bitter or anything.  Anyway moving on.

Last night I did the Brooklyn Decker workout video on exercise TV again, and I’m really liking it.  I wore my Garmin so that I could try to gauge my heart rate and calories burned, the calorie counter didn’t work but my heart rate ranged from about 138-156 for the 30 minute workout so I’m guess anywhere from 220-270ish calories.

After my workout, I moved on to preparing dinner.  I had chicken marinading in my new favorite, Lawrys Caribbean Jerk and chopped up some peppers and onions to also marinade.  Then it was onto the grill for kabobs.

With some Annie’s Organic Whole Wheat White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese on the side.  Seriously this marinade is to die for.  As my sister put it, “I want to swim in this marinade.”  I’ve made chicken kabobs twice so far this summer and am already through a whole bottle.  Ya out there Lawrys?!?! Send me some coupons or some free Caribbean Jerk marinade, pleeeeasse.

Dessert was a glass (or three) of red wine and a chocolate covered strawberry, all while enjoying 3 hours of Grey’s Anatomy on Lifetime and then too many hours of the Real Housewives of NYC.  I think I need a TV intervention.

Today after work, my sister and I have “reservations’ at Chick-Fil-A to try their new spicy chicken sandwich for free.  Not going to lie, I’m pretty excited about this.  You can go to their website and search for a location near you, and make a reservation anytime between now and June 5.  The sandwich will be added to the menu on Monday.  I’ll be sure to let you all know how it is, haha.

Tomorrow I have a date with my BFF and old college roomie who I haven’t seen since Christmas of 2008!  So sad, we used to share a house and a wall and now we never see each other :(.  We’re going to get our nails did, have lunch, and do some shopping at King of Prussia Mall.  I am beyond excited.  Jilly I’m pretty much treating this like a date and plan on getting all dolled up for you ;).

That’s about it as far as plans for the weekend go, what are you all up to this weekend?  Have a great Friday!
