Happy Election Day!!!! I am not going to sit here and tell everyone to vote for one person over the other, all I am saying about Election Day is to GO VOTE!!! I don’t care who you vote for, because it’s not my business, but at least go vote! That’s all I am going to say about it! Thanks!
Now onto my usual blogging! Last nights dinner rocked! I made Stir-Fry for dinner and as promised, here’s my recipe. For my Stir Fry you will need:
- Soy Sauce
- Green Pepper
- Water Chestnuts
You will want to spray the bottom of the skillet with pam and bring to medium heat. Once heated, add onion and garlic. Cook about 2 minutes and add some Soy sauce (1-2 tbs is plenty!)
After about 2 minutes, add the carrots and heat for another 2 minutes (If the soy sauce starts to evaporate, add some more, or add some more pam).
After 2 minutes, add in the celery (let cook for 1 minute), then add the peppers, mushrooms, water chestnuts and mini corn. Cook everything for about 4 minutes (you can change the cook time to fit to your liking, I like my peppers with some crunch and not my onions, so this is why I add the onions first!)
One fully cooked to your liking, serve over some rice (I use about a half cup of rice for mine because I like mostly veggies in mine!) I also had 2 pieces of whole wheat toast to go with it.
This time, instead of using peanut butter, I decided to use Barney Butter!!!!
The Barney Butter was a great addition, it really brought the whole meal together!
Then, for dessert later on, I had some fat free frozen yogurt with whipped topping and pumpkin spice! YUMMO!!!!
This morning, I opted to change it up a little bit! I decided to have 2 whole wheat waffles.
I also had a Gala apple with cinnamon.
And some yogurt to tie it all together! This breakfast was really good, but I wanted something a little sweeter, so on my way out the door this morning, I grabbed a mini pumpkin spice cookie This will defiantly keep me full until lunch!
Speaking of lunch, I REALLY tried something new today!!!! I decided to make LETTUCE WRAPS!!!! i figured, if Jimmy Johns can make them, then why can’t I. So I did. I made mine with 1 piece of turkey, 1 leaf of lettuce and 1/3 of a laughing cow wedge. First, I took the Laughing Cow and spread it over the turkey. Then, I placed the turkey on top of the lettuce leaf and rolled it up!
Just like this:
I did this with 3 pieces of turkey and lettuce to make a total of 3 mini wraps. I also packed in some carrots, grapes and a clif bar for today!
I am really looking forward to this lunch and will let you know how the mini wraps turned out! Have a great day everyone!!!!!!
