Been Gone A While.......................

I've been gone for months now but I wanted to get back on Spark and see who is still here and who is not. I'm still trying to reach my goal - although I'm closer than I was before. Still have about 18 lbs to go.

I don't even want to make the statement that I'll Spark every day because I just don't know if I will. I always have great intentions but things always seem to get in my way - especially my work schedule. I do know that I keep coming back and that's a good thing!

My Goals:
Lose 25 lbs. and get back to my healthy eating habits!

My Program:
Stay in my calorie range; keep an eye on my nutrition every day; get in some exercise most days and not fret because my back problems keep me from being to able to exercise like I used to!

Personal Information:
I live in sunny Arizona with my DH and am the mom of three adult children and two stunningly handsome and intelligent little grandsons - oops! that sounds like bragging but other Granny's understand -LOL If I don't look in the mirror, I forget I'm not 25 any more but then age is largely a state of mind and I think I'm losing mine! I am a Christian and have a strong faith in the LORD. I've been told I'm a great cook but don't ask me for a recipe because I was taught with the pinch of this - dash of that - method. I even find myself modifying my Spark recipes, somewhat.

Other Information:
I love mysteries - books, Telly, and movies. BBC is my absolute favorite when it comes to detective shows and I adore British comedy. Some of my favorites are The IT Crowd, Father Ted, Keeping Up Appearances - Murdoch Mysteries (which is really Canadian), Taggert, Blue Murder, Jonathan Creek, etc. I also re-watch the original Dark Shadows whenever I get in the mood for something ridiculous and campy.

This is a new recipe that I am going to make for dinner. Just wanted to share a new idea with you! Yummie! emoticon

Slow Cooker Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Print Recipe


Ingredients

2 medium red bell peppers (they should be big enough to hold a cup of stuffing each)

1/4 cup uncooked instant brown rice, yields 1/2 cup cooked

8 ounces ground turkey, (about 1/2 a pound)

2 tbsp diced onion

1 tbsp reduced fat sour cream

1/4 cup tomato juice

salt and pepper to taste

Nutritional Info


Fat: 9.9g
Carbohydrates: 28.1g
Calories:267.3
Protein: 25.6g



Cook instant rice according to package directions.

Meanwhile, cut off the top of the peppers 1 inch from the stem end, and remove the seeds.

In a bowl, combine turkey, sour cream, tomato juice, onions, salt and pepper.

When the rice is finished, drain it and run it under cool water for a few seconds, then add it to the turkey mixture.

Fill the peppers with the turkey mixture and stand them up in the slow cooker.

Cook for 4-6 hours on low, or 2-4 hours on high.

Makes 2 servings

*I usually prep this the night before and then start it on low before I head out the door to work at about 8, when I get home at 5:30 they are perfect, but it depends on your slow cooker*

Number of Servings: 2
