I'm a chef?! (With pictures)
Sunday, June 30, 2013
Hola lovelies. Sorry I've been missing the last couple days! I've been lurking around, but not really doing much of anything. I injured my knee at the beginning of this week on Tuesday, and haven't been able to do much in the way of exercising since then. It's been pretty swollen, so I've been staying off it and icing it as much as possible. The swelling seems to have been going down between yesterday and today (finally) so I'm crossing my fingers in hopes that I can do an easy workout tomorrow. I miss it so much. And I am REALLY hoping that I can make it to Zumba at least once next week. I miss it SO SO much. The songs have been stuck in my head and everything. I'm seriously in love with it. I also finally gave in and bought the pink Polar FT4 HRM that I had my eye on, and I'm super eager to try it out. I am dying to know how many calories I'm REALLY burning in my workouts!
In other news..I decided to play chef tonight. I've been toying with the idea of making egg muffins that the lovely BRADMILL2922 gave me the recipe to, and I finally did it tonight. By very anxious to try them for breakfast tomorrow. Here's a picture of my finished product..
Then after I finished that I decided to make a stuffed pepper for dinner. Normally, I HATE green bell peppers with a passion. But, I wanted to try it anyway. Sooooo I sliced a green bell pepper in half, stuffed it with a mixture of quinoa, ground chicken, green chilies, onions, a splash of BBQ sauce and a dash of green Tabasco.. Topped each half with a good pinch of a shredded Italian 6 cheese blend.... And OHHH my goodness.... I'm in awe of myself, no joke. They turned out SO good. I will DEFINITELY be making it again. It is definitely one of the best things I have ever made, and I came up with the recipe myself! Here's a picture of the delicious beauty..
Sooooooo yummy. The green pepper was even delicious! I was so very pleasantly surprised, and very happy that I liked it, and proud that I decided to give green peppers another shot!
That's really all I have for tonight. It's been a long rough week, and I'm glad it's over. I'm hoping that next week is definitely better. Hope you all had a great week!
