What's a day off?

I'm keeping myself pretty busy today...
  • 6km run
  • Hour at the gym
  • Took the Christmouse tree down
  • Laundry
  • and...COOKING :)
I had wanted to make three things so I had food for the week and would not be tempted to buy lunch or rely on processed, package crapola. 1. Veggie Chili - really simple; veggie ground round, diced tomatoes, onions, green pepper, red pepper, celery, corn, kidney beans, jalapenos, stock, chili powder and garlic. SOOOOOOO YUMMY. 2. Turkey meatloaf - It's actually a recipe from Eating for Life. I bought it when I was on BFL a looooooooooong time ago. It's not bad and works out to be about 5 points a portion. Made with ground turkey, oats, egg whites, salsa, vegetable soup mix and onions. Oh - and a bit of ketchup on top. 3. ...well, it never happened. I have ALL the ingredients I need to make Ooh-la-la lasagna from ESBM EXCEPT ricotta cheese, which is sort of important. My grocery store never seems to have any in stock when I want it. Stupid downtown grocery stores!!! I'll just make it tomorrow and pass by another grocery store.

Our Christmas tree had it's last show tonight with our company. It comes down tomorrow. I'm so bummed.
Your veggie chili looks so good! And the meatloaf sounds very similar to my fave meatloaf.
You're rocking, girl!
Good luck finding the ricotta!

Those are some incredibly healthy and hearty dishes you got there. This week should be really yummy and satisfying! Methinks I need to make a pot o' chili now.

The meatload does look very good. I made black bean soup yesterday - for the very same reason - to have a stock pile of healthy/ready to eat.
