Running Around Like a Chicken with My Head Cutoff

After weeks of running around like a mad woman, I finally had a relaxing weekend! A couple of my friends and I rented a little log cabin in the woods so we could get away and enjoy some peace and quiet for a couple of days. The white cedar siding of the log cabin was absolutely beautiful and the view of the mountains from the porch was breathtaking! My friends and I wanted to steal the electric lantern in the picture off the porch for our own houses too! I know I speak for all of my friends when I say we would go back in a heartbeat.

I loved the gorgeous log cabin and getting to spend time with my friends, but that wasn’t the best part of the weekend. I honestly just enjoyed not having to eat a meal in less than five minutes. I was so extremely busy that I don’t know the last time I sat down to eat a meal; I was always eating on the go and it was terrible! And I really missed cooking so being able to cook for all of my friends was great as well.

I came across this Savory Yogurt Chicken recipe a while back and finally decided to make it on our trip. It was delicious and definitely the favorite meal of the weekend for everyone. Prep-time is minimal, but the chicken does have to cook for 45-55 minutes. I’m glad I finally tried it because I can whip up the crumb mixture quickly and get it on the chicken then let it cook while I workout. I’m hoping to find more recipes like this so I accomplish something around my house while dinner is cooking so if you know of any recipes that are similar, please share them in the comments; I’d love to try them out!
