Happy Monday! This Monday I actually got up and showered and left the house in something other than running pants and a dry fit shirt to go to the gym. We started running errands early this morning and skipped the gym. I am definitely not making it a habit to skip the gym on Mondays but today it worked best for our schedule. I am hoping to either make it out for a walk or try out Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown video sometime this afternoon.
There really hasn’t been much action in our house since Saturday. Yesterday was the normal Sunday for us; church, church, lunch, nap, church. However, we did head over to Mark and Keema’s for dinner and to finish up closing up my order from my Thirty-One party last week. (You might remember their sweet baby Julian from Saturday night.) Keema made spaghetti and breadsticks that totally hit the spot! Spaghetti has never been one of my strong dishes so I always love eating with people that make it well. She also made these little pizza crescent roll things that I could have eaten my weight in. It was so simple, just put a little pizza sauce, cheese and a pepperoni in crescent roll dough and roll up then bake until brown! Yum!
There was a little something different about yesterday than normal Sundays…I made lunch at home! When we walked in the door from the church Lew took over complete baby duty and I took on lunch duty. This evolved into stuffed bell peppers.
Ashlee’s Stuffed Bell Peppers
- 93% lean ground turkey
- 1 can fire roasted tomatoes (drained)
- salt, pepper, garlic to taste
- tsp. Italian seasoning
- shredded cheese (whatever you have on hand; I used about 1/4 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup cheddar)
- 4 bell peppers; tops removed and seeded
Brown turkey with seasonings. When cooked through add can of tomatoes and simmer for about 7 minutes. Add cheese. Fill peppers with turkey filling. Bake on 400 degree for 20-30 minutes depending on how cooked you like your peppers.
I am working on something fun for our Valentine’s dinner tonight. Lew and I did not exchange gifts or cards, instead we decided to go to Dairy Queen tonight after dinner for dipped cones!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
