day 2: leftover chicken penne

My husband and I both work full-time so we share cooking responsibilities... I have to admit, he does more cooking than I do lately. This is what he made last night:

Easy Chicken Penne:
2 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1/2 package (1/2 lb) of penne pasta
2 cups broccolli (we used frozen but fresh is also good)
Philadelphia Cooking Creme (Savory Garlic) (find it by the cream cheese at the store)

Directions: Cook pasta according to directions. Brown and cook the chicken. Stir in the broccoli until its half-cooked. Throw in the pasta and add cooking creme. Stir for 3 minutes until hot. Voila!

carrot sticks+ranch, yogurt, juice

This is my lunch... I should have grabbed a little ziploc bag of carrots. And I want to get fun lunch boxes, but I have a cabinet full of these gladware at work since I have a bad habit of leaving them there. Once every 3-4 months, I take a big bag of containers home.

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
