Good Friday Sparkfam!

Its a beautiful day here in Chicago. I call it the calm before the storm. It about 80degrees & sunny. This is a perfect summer day to me but I do like slight breezes & yet we have none today in the Windy City. lol

So last Saturday while shopping I picked up a frozen bag dinner of Bertolli's Tuscan Braised Beef with gold potatoes. It also has red & green peppers & onions & the potatoes are plentiful! I made this for my hubby & son on Saturday cause we were being lazy & waited until 8pm to try to decide what to eat? Well I put in a bowl & microwaved it (I know I am such a bad wife & mother) but it was so quick. It was so good I just liked having the gravy & veggies. Let me tell you the family enjoyed it very much. Racking my brain on what to cook last night, I went by Jewel (food store) & picked up 2 bags.

While watching Burn Notice I cooked those babies up & made white rice. I didn't have any brown rice which would have been healthier but you can also add more veggies. Which is a huge thing with me these days to get my vegetables intake up. I do it to my soups as well & it makes the soup a meal than a palette cleanser or broth. When they came home I put rice & then put the Bertollis on top & they thought we were have pepper steak & rice but the beef is soooooo tender. . . .ahhhhhhhhhh

Last night I was supposed to do Cathe's Kick Punch & Crunch but at last someone unplugged the DirectTv cable. So I had to play mom, wife, cook & repair woman too. lol emoticon So I got lazy while watching the boob tube & just sat there. Well I got myself up, watched Joyce for inspiration, meditated on Psalms 57 Be merciful unto me, O God! Now that's some good stuff & meaty! Then put on my workout clothes & pressed play. I didn't want to do it but I knew I had to & after that I did, All Star Workouts Pilates Sculpt with 5lb weights. Thats always a good workout & slow paced & you will feel it. I'm working on the Quick Fire Challenge to do chair squats & later tonight it Legs & Glutes to wrap up a high intense workout week. Tomorrow will be cleaning, grocery shopping & yoga so its a lighter day. emoticon emoticon

God bless & TGIF!!

    I've looked at those dinners for MONTHS and said to myself "They're probably not as good as they look" but now I'll have to try! Thanks for the added note about more veggies I REALLY LIKE VEGGIES!
