You're welcome for that lovely mental image. Lucky I don't have a picture of that for you. I do, however, have a picture of what that level of humidity does to my hair. I have it tied up in a ponytail, then twisted into a tight bun, and stuck down with my trusty active band. But those freaking guys still find a way to get loose. Exhibit A:
And Exhibit B, after stretching:
I don't get it. I swear I'm a good person. WHY?! At least I managed the whole 7 miles (middle 3 at tempo pace).
Moving on. I got sent a box of Kikkoman's Kara-Age coating mix a while back to make Japanese style fried chicken. I got pretty excited, because hubs and I really miss Asian food. It has a soy and ginger flavor (awesome) but in order to cook it you're supposed to fry it in hot oil (less awesome). I wanted to try it out, but skip the whole frying instructions.
Instead, I cut up pieces of chicken breast and tossed them in the coating mix. Oh my gosh, one whiff of it and I was craving ginger. I baked them instead of deep frying them, and served with broccoli and jasmine rice. And of course, some pickled ginger on the side because no meal that's even vaguely Asian is complete without it.
It was...decent. I liked them a lot, basically they were Asian chicken nuggets and I can get on board with that. Hubs thought the flavor was nice, but they were dry.
Can someone please find a way to make fried chicken super healthy? Thanks so much.
How do you control your hair when you work out? Bands, ponytails, braids?
Basically, I try to cover up as much as possible. It goes up, gets covered with an active band, and I cross my fingers and hope for the best. Whenever I see those women running with their hair down I just don't understand! How can you do that?!
Are you a fried chicken fan? Do you have a healthy replacement?
I do love me some fried chicken every once in a while. As of yet, I haven't found a healthy version that tastes anything like the real thing. Luckily I liked plain baked chicken as well!
