Learnin To Dance In The Rain

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

So much is happening in such a short span of time, it's hard to kind of get a grip on the big picture.

We seem to be stretched, torn apart, & squeezed together all at the same time. It's kind of overwhelming & can be difficult at best to try to put everything in perspective.

This journey we're on gets complicated sometimes, with all it's twists & turns, bumps & bruises... The people we meet along the way, *the good, the bad & the ugly... help form us into who we were destined to be!

Let's meet the challenge of life head on... embrace the good, discard the bad.

Someday, everything will make perfect sense...

But for now, let's try to laugh at the confusion,
or at least try to smile thru the tears...

Let's keep reminding ourselves that everything has a reason.

Let's not just waste our time worrying & waiting for the storms to pass...
Let's learn to Dance In The Rain!

Prayers for protection from the storms of life that we are facing at this time.

Gentle huggs & blessings to everyone!

Love, Tunia


Skinny Dancin Restaurant Spinach Dip

Friday, August 22, 2008

Gooey, cheesy spinach dip and tortilla chips -- One of the most delicious appetizers you can order!

It's also one of the most fattening (Please don't be one of those people that pretends anything made with spinach can't possibly be bad for your diet!).

So how can something contain mayo, cheese and sour cream, and still be guilt-free? Is it magic? Nah, just some clever substitution action!!!

Here ya go Football Fans... I bring you....

Skinny Dancin Restaurant Spinach Dip

(1/8 recipe, approx. 3-4 Tbsp. - 70 calories, 0.5g fat, 305mg sodium, 7.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 2g sugars, 6.5g protein = 1 Point)

4 oz. Lifetime Fat Free Monterey Jack Cheese (or another fat-free white hard cheese, like Muenster or Mozzarella)
4 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
10 tsp. Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. shallots, chopped finely
6 tbsp. fat-free mayo
1 oz. light soy milk
1 10 oz. pkg. chopped spinach, thawed and drained
4 oz. water chestnuts, chopped

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt your Monterey Jack over a low flame. In a separate pan, saute garlic and shallots with some nonstick cooking spray. Add soy milk to melted cheese, stirring continuously. Next, add mayo, sour cream and parmesan into your cheese mixture, still stirring over low heat. Add your sauteed garlic and shallots, as well as water chestnuts. Add your well-drained, chopped spinach and mix thoroughly. Spoon your dip into a medium-sized casserole dish and bake in a preheated 325-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Voila! Your spinach-y masterpiece is complete. You may add salt and/or pepper if desired. Serves 6-8.

House of 1000 Mirrors... a Japanese Folktale

Monday, August 11, 2008

Long ago in a small, far away village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors.

A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."

All the faces in the world are mirrors.

What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?

    I love that story. It is so very true. Each day we wake up and have a choice to be happy and smile, take things in stride or trudge through the day and let every thing bother us.

Portobello Skins

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

All ready for Football Season?

We are gonna eat in front of the tube, so I wanted something HEALTHY to help celebrate!

I'm gonna try a recipe for Portobello Skins...

4 portobello mushrooms
1 Tbs olive oil
2/3 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
2 slices turkey bacon cooked crisp & crumbled
1 small tomato seeded & chopped
1 Tbs. fresh chopped chives

Preheat oven to 450, line baking sheet with foil... lightly coat with spray.

Brush mushroom caps & edges with oil. Sprinkle stem side with salt & pepper. & place mushrooms rounded side down, on baking sheet.

Divide cheese among mushroom caps. Bake 10 minutes or til cheese begins to melt & edges begin to brown. Remove & sprinkle bacon, tomato, & chives over mushrooms.

Return to oven & cook 5 more minutes til cheese is melted & mushrooms are hot... cut into wedges & serve with tooth picks...

Serves 2 only 246 calories.

To make a meal I'm gonna serve it with mixed greens tossed with lite Italian dressing & a lovely oven toasted slice of multi grain bread!

We're going to have an O'Doul's non-alcoholic beer with it at only 90 calories!

Geaux Saints!!!

    Ohhh...I have got to make this for my sister! We are working at it together to loose weight. She loves mushrooms. I dont care for them excepet fried from Zaxbys. I've made them myself and they are not as good in my opinion. BUT sister swears they are better. LOL You can stay on track during football season. Continue to plan healthy snacks for you as well as guest!!
