It’s my LAST day of work I am really sad!! I’m going to miss my job tons — it’s been a blast! And in timely fashion, I am now 50% done with my hours needed to sit for the Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) exam! I’m ecstatic about that!
I’ll quit my pouting and share a delicious dinner…

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon honey
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
1/2 cup diced English cucumber (I just used a regular cucumber)
1/2 cup prechopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
Cook orzo according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain crcd.org.al/sports-betting-online and rinse with cold water; drain and place in a large bowl.
While orzo cooks, combine lemon rind and next 6 ingredients (through black pepper), stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture over orzo; toss to roulette coat. Add chicken and next 4 ingredients (through dill); toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with cheese. Serves 4 — about 1 1/4 cup per serving.

Result: This was yummy, summery, refreshing, and light! I did add a bit more chicken as I had nothing to do with leftover rotisserie chicken. Be sure to measure the lemon juice and lemon rind — don’t want to over-do it with those intense citruses!
And if you’re looking for a fun, summery adult beverage…
