I started this morning in a zombie like state thanks to reading well past my bedtime last night. I’m just about done Eclipse which I’ve been limiting myself to a chapter a night in order to avoid staying up too late. But I had to read all about the fight last night before I could turn my light out. AH, it was worth the pain my alarm this morning! :D
I didn’t get around to eating this until almost 9am. Just a wee bit later than usual!
I avoided sitting around too much today by tackling quite a bit of housework, playing some Wii with DD and baking. When I came across this random Morning Glory recipe I knew I had to make it. I used to work at a restaurant that made a killer morning glory muffin and I miss it!
It was a straight forward recipe and the only changes I made were USAB for the milk and a 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters for the egg. The results were awesome!
I had some roasted potatoes in the fridge that I wanted to use up at dinner tonight so I decided on a shepherds pie. I kept it simple by just browning some extra lean ground beef with grated carrots, diced zucchini and a bunch of random spices. The gravy was just as easy…..a little basil infused olive oil, WW flour and chicken stock. I mixed that into the meat, spread it in a 9 x 9 dish, topped it with corn and peas then mashed the potatoes and smoothed them over the mix. A little grated cheese finished it off. Into a 350* oven it went for 25 minutes;
I just got back from Pilate’s and I’m about to join a game of Scrabble with the fam while watching the Biggest Loser. Cool!
OH! I inherited a can of refried beans and I have NO idea what to do with them! I’ve never used them before but would certainly like to. Please, please pass along any recipes (simple or otherwise) in the comments!!!
Bye for now!!
