Weekend Cooking

Who needs the gym when you have snow to shovel?! Yes siree, I'm stiff. Probably not the good kind of the kind you get from a good workout...but more the bad kind you get from bending and lifting inappropriately. Either way, it's a workout!!

I'm not going to go over what I ate this weekend, because it was truly too much. I forgot to weigh-in this morning so I don't know what damage I may have for now I'm not going to worry about it.

The good part about a snowy weekend is that I had time to do some cooking. I had finally gotten close to the end of the frozen meals I had been working my way through for the last little while and it was time for some more stocking up. Thankfully I had thought of this before the big snow came so I had all the ingredients on hand. I made a batch of Smackeroni & Cheese (from Eat Shrink & Be Merry), some beef stew (cooked all day in my crock pot), and a batch of those Chicken & Bean Rollups that came out of a recipe book from DBF's nutrionist. That should keep me going for a while! I also boiled off some eggs for lunches this week and tonight I'm hoping to find time to put together a batch of zucchini & chocolate bran muffins too. Yum-o.

I'd like to head to the gym for some cardio and good stretching tonight too (stretching is so much easier and better when you are all warmed up from a workout) hopefully time allows. Other than that, I got nothin.

Today's eats...trying to be more mindful of what I'm shoving in my yap:

- coffee (I've been enjoying a bit of cream lately instead of skim milk and loving it!)
- whole wheat roll with egg salad
- small serving leftover beef stew (made too big a serving for last night's dinner)
- grapes
- tea & Leclerc granola bar
- Smackeroni & mixed green salad
- muffin if I make them...otherwise probably hot chocolate Pin It

Oh I have Eat, Shrink and Be Merry too! There are some really good recipes in there! Last week we had the Chop Suey in there, it was awesome!

I friggin love the Smackaroni recipe and I have GOT to make another batch. I found that if you double, even triple the zucchini in it, you can really bulk it up without even noticing or adding many extra calories! That was the moment I realized I loved zucchini!

I don't think I have ever tried the Smakaroni recipe...must check that out.

Cream is a must for coffee. I tried switching to milk, but it made me so unhappy, so I stick to 10% cream.
