Just keepin’ it real

as PW would say. I decided to be Betty Crocker today and now my sink is full. ¬†Full Sinks bug me. I made: Chicken Cacciatore, Chicken and Squash with onions, Spinach and Turkey Loaf, Hummus, Applesauce, Power Water, a Smoothie, & Braised Kale. Well I almost made the Kale its rinsed and ready to go. I’ll make it soon I promise.

Here’s a few pics: I’ll post more soon.

Just looking at this wears me out:

New friends:

Smoothie Time:

Egg white protein, Banana, Blueberries, Strawberries, & Coconut Oil

Chicken Cacciatore

Thats all I have for now. ūüôā ¬†Pretty excited to try a little bit of everything oh and make that kale.

 

Spaghetti Squash

How to make some Spaghetti Squash-it’s delish and way healthier than traditional pasta

Preheat oven to 350F

Fill bottom of a large casserole dish with 1 inch of water

1. Cut off top

2. Stand Squash up and cut down the middle-so you have 2 long pieces (this will be difficult)

3. Scoop out seeds and guts

4. Should look like this when done:

5. Place face down in casserole dish with water

6. Cook for about 35-45 min (you should be able to stick a knife in the skin easily)

7. Take out of oven and let it cool some

8. Flip over squash and get a serving or storage dish ready and take a fork and run in over the inside of the squash many times. Let it fall into the dish. It should resemble Spaghetti.

9. Top with your favorite sauce and enjoy!

Well

Finally.  I am feeling better. Mozzarella cheese tried to kill me last week.  I think I might be joining the casein free club.  I will be trying Goat Milk and Buffalo Cheeses and if its still a no go, then so long dairy.

This week was vinegar and so far I know I’m ok with Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Balsamic. I’m afraid to try white and red wine.

I hit the 50lb weight loss mark this week and discovered I can run for 10 minutes in a row.  Go me!!!

We survived Snowpocolypse 2011. ¬†I think we got 18″ and then some incredible drifts.

It was kind of nice having civilization shut down for a couple of days and helping neighbors and spending time outside.

I’ll post some stuff soon.
