I’m blogging while watching the season finale for The Biggest Loser. The Biggest Loser is really the only show I like to watch but never used to be able to because of my work schedule. One of my good friends actually auditioned for the personal trainer next season so that would be awesome if she got it!
This afternoon I snacked on my new favorite combo: peanut butter mousse!
I watched Oprah with my mom and then came back home to start dinner. While I cooked I enjoyed a glass of vino—
Got this new book…can’t wait to start it!
For dinner tonight I went back to one of my favorite staples: beans ‘n greens. See the link to my Creative Loafing post tomorrow for the exact recipe. 😉 While cleaning up the kitchen last night I found this old bag of dried beans and that inspired me—
Truth be told, Ryan and I BOTH loooooove lima beans. Especially these giant ones—they are just so much fun (and affordable!)! And this quick weeknight dinner which has them paired with olive oil, garlic and spinach is a winner in this house.
I’ve made this as a side dish before, but honestly I like it by itself….the beans are great protein and when paired with the greens it makes for a very tasty and satisfying dinner!
Tonight I had my portion alongside a BIG baked sweet potato:
And here’s the boy’s dinner…..he got leftover collards and mac & cheese as well!
I was very happy that I at least squeezed a few veggies in him! 😉
Dessert was a little “sundae” of sorts—
I just LOVE this stuff:
Ahh! Gotta quickly get in pjs and make it back to the couch for BL. See you in the morning for another Raw Wednesday Challenge! What do YOU have planned?
