Since we are going to Michigan on Friday I thought I better attempt to get rid of stuff that is sitting in the refrigerator. I had a little container of pinto beans so I made some tacos. Yummy. This time I decided to keep them whole instead of mashing them and they really hit the spot. I mixed a little salsa and sour cream. A great and satisfying lunch.
I trained at 2:30 and after training I had a some soy nuts and raisin. I did 30 minutes of cardio and came home to make dinner for the boys. I prepared them a flank steak roll. Hubby butterflied the flanks steak and pounded it down. I spread it with a mixture of sun dried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, horseradish and pepper. Rolled it up and tied it with kitchen rope. I browned it in a little oil on a pan and then stuck it in the oven until it reached a temperature of 150 degrees. Hubby it was good. They had baked potatoes and broccoli along side.
I had some tempeh in the refrigerator and some broccoli slaw so make this delicious salad. This is one of my favorites. I cooked up 2 ounces of dry wheat pasta. I heated up 2 tsp of peanut oil in a pan and added garlic, one lime juiced, 2 ounces tempeh and a dash of salt. I cooked it about 5 minutes and then I added the broccoli slaw and cooked another 3 minutes. I put it on topped of the noodles and finished off with slice green onions and 1 tablespoon of peanuts. It is so good and the little crunch of the broccoli slaw and taste of lime makes this a great dish.
I haven't had this yet but it has been on my mind all day and I am looking forward to sitting down and enjoying it. SO good!!
I think I will sit and make a list of the eats I plan on having in Michigan. It always makes me feel a little better going with a plan.
No big plans for tomorrow. I have to get my hair done at 12:15 but that is it. Hopefully I can make the pasta and cookies for my mother-in-law. Every time I go up to visit her I bring her these and I know she looks forward to them. I just love seeing the joy in her eyes it makes it so worth doing.
