#RECIPEFRIDAY: Easy Zesty Lemon Chicken Spaguetti...

I had some extra lemons laying around so I thought I'd make use of them.

Seeing that...

I've always enjoyed a citrusy flavour to my pasta...

I thought I'd make something specially for SuperFit in hopes that...

He'd also like his spaguetti a little zesty too!

I mean...

Who doesn't like a little zest in their life?! :P


But before I get to my recipe...

I'm happy to share that I've been running quite regularly on the treadmill (pain free!) since I was give the green light to run again so...

I can't wait to actually be able to go outside and see what my indoor training will bring! (I won't deny though, there is a part of me that fears the pain will come back but, we'll just have to wait and see...until the snow actually clears!)

Got this awesome tank from Pavement Runner.
Seriously...
It's one of my fave workout shirts!

But enough about me...

Let's get to the food!
