Oatmeal, Chili & Chicken

Hey y'all!!! How are you doing? I've had a pretty repetitive couple days food-wise and busy busy busy otherwise!! For breakfast yesterday I had some pumpkin-butter oatmeal --without brown sugar this time. It was MUCH better without sugar!! :)

Lunch was some paleo chili with an egg on top. I am officially out of chili and that makes me a little sad!!
I love chili with an egg on top. Kinda like Surry with the Fringe on Top?? ummm....nope.

Dinner was garlic baked chicken, butternut squash & green beans.
The squash recipe came from Cooking Club magazine and my friend Michele in Savannah gave it to me!! And I will now pass it along to you, it is awesome and made my house smell wonderful! :)

1 lb. butternut squash, pealed, cubed (3/4 inch)(4 cups)
2 c. cipollini onions or shallots, quartered ( I used 1 c. shallots & the rest were yellow as that was what I had on hand)
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 tsp olive oil

1) Heat oven to 450*. Spray rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan with cooking spray
2) Combine all ingredients except oil in large bowl: toss with oil to coat. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake 25-35 mins. or until tender & browned in spots, turning several times.

I woke up very late today, I blame it on this morning's rain!! I made a fried egg
And some more oatmeal :)

This is only 1/4 c oats, 1/2 c skim milk, almond butter, raisins & a banana.
Lunch was a salade
And a very funny looking lame steak. Not the best cut of meat, but whatever!
And a repeat performance of last night's dinner!
Defo better on the second night. I've got a busy day tomorrow and Friday I'm going down to Savannah to visit Michele!!! :D I'm very excited for my little weekend trip! We're supposed to be going to a masquerade ball, I'll make sure to take beaucoup de photos!!!

I usually only eat a 1/4 cup portion of oats too, otherwise, I end up too fuel and I need more protein than carbs.
