I took a "vacation" from SP while I ran a conference for work. I did manage to work out at the hotel twice, which is better than I normally do on such occasions, so I was happy about that!

There was no ethnic food to speak of at the hotel. It was all American and Southern cuisine. I made up for it over the weekend with some extra-spicy Asian and Mexican.

I miss you guys. I love ethnic foods but lately I have kept on my food plan with some sort of bland foods. A packet of salmon, trader joes mini crackers and 2 scoops of protein drink. The only thing I can do is soup up the salmon with a little squirt of mustard and salt.

I ordered 5 different Indian spice blends from Amazon. I figured that would give me a start. I sure love the spice flavors, and the majority of the recipes are pretty healthy and spark friendly. Next month when I have more money, I will go to the Indian store in the next town over and see what they have to offer. One good thing about using the Indian spices, is you can really dress up meats and veggies and be healthy. Even curry sauces are low calorie, low fat if you don't use the Ghee which is clarified butter, I don't have any of that so it get's omitted from the recipes. I won't miss it. MOST RECIPES ARE GLUTEN FREE yay

I did order a Greek cookbook.

Thus ends my broadening of my Ethnic culinary expansions for the month of May

It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

Filled out a recipe to submit with ham and greens, the easy way. It was my first time submitting to spark people. Today I walked for 20 minutes and then did 2 sets of 10 crunches. Yay!

I just filled out a little note on the inside and on the outside I copied a couple of pictures of Sweden and the Netherlands that were really pretty and so I was happy with that and I was able to make five Christmas cards.

Today I walked 1 mile and I'm going to do crunches later on tonight.

I found a tasty brown rice dish where I just added curry, raisins and cinnamon. It came out really well.

I don't know about doing it for free. You might try googling it. I found a site that lets me send free cards but I can't make them.

My plan is to walk 2 miles today. The weather is a bit better than yesterday and still cool. My meals are planned and in tupperware for easy travel. I still want that particular meat but don't think I am going to make the effort to get it. So yay, just say no. . .

I have been wondering if there are any online sites that let a person make and print their own xmas cards for free? I really have about 10 to get and have not really been shopping. I guess I had better do some research.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Still, I may be making tongue tacos later. . .ugh.

Welcome! I don't know exactly what kind of program you're on, but herbs and spices have zero calories, so you can go to town.

Hi team, I just joined the group.

This was a must do for me as I really enjoy ethnic foods.
Even my low cal veggie dishes need to have hot sauce and cayenne.
Right now I am craving a certain type of organ meat. I know it's probably
high fat so I am trying to talk myself out of it. I am on day 9 of a more
strict food plan. So far I have only been planning meals in the a.m. or the
night before. But today I am inspired to plan the week. Going to try it and see what
happens. It's raining. Not sure if I am going to exercise today. But know I just have
to do it since I made the commitment. How are you doing? emoticon

Hi fellow foodies! I had a wonderful time tonight at Olive Gardens with family while we celebrated my aunt and uncle's 64th anniversary. Great meal and great conversation. I had the Mediterranean Grilled Chicken - absolutely delicious! Since I knew I was eating out, I ate fewer calories earlier in the day. I think my strategy worked, because I did not have that overstuffed feeling afterwards. More than likely I went over my totals for the day, but I plan on extra exercise tomorrow, plus a lighter eating plan.

I have a new cookbook on the way - "Cooking" by James Peterson. It may not sound international, but Peterson has international experience and is a master chef. I own his '"Baking" book, which, as far as I'm concerned, is the definitive work on all things concerning baking. I can hardly wait for this new book to arrive.

I hope everyone has a super SparkWeek.

Blessings to all,
FRISKY_FELINE emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am never NOT ready for some football! Cold, overcast day here in Northern Cali. Don't know yet what-all I'm going to do today, except that I'm making meat loaf for dinner.

Are you ready for some football?!! It's a beautiful day here in suburban Cleveland, and I feel great after a fantastic night of rest. I really struggled for a couple of days because of not sleeping enough, but now I'm back on track and feeling the Spark. Going to go energize myself with a veggie and fruit smoothie and then do some cardio, and, after that, who knows, maybe I'll write a Pulitzer winning novel (hah!). Have a beautiful Spark day everyone! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey fellow foodies, just checking in - want to say Hi to everyone and hope you all had a great week. I'm excited because I crossed into Level 4 today, plus I got a great new cookbook from one of my book clubs called "Salad As A Meal." It has some great recipes and has beautiful photos. I have to admit - I am not a fan of cookbooks that don't have photos. Well, I'm going to go turn the furnace on - it is freezing in here. So take care my friends and may your days be delicious! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone. Things have been going well, especially when it comes to exercise. I have either been walking outdoors or using my Leslie Sansone dvd. Then I use my Pilates machine. I'm not seeing much of a difference yet, but I am feeling it, especially in my lower abdominals. I'm looking forward to making homemade chicken soup tomorrow - I know it's not international, but I love making it and using my secret little spin that adds a nice kick.

By the way, thank you to everyone on the team for sending the SparkGoodie spices.

Keep eating well and living well everyone! emoticon emoticon

As for a serving chart, I can't imagine they don't have one under Sparktools.

My pantry has been like a painter's palette for me over the years. Now, I'm having to learn to paint with different colors. Its been an interesting exercise!

Today I'm going to continue organizing and laying out my summer projects. Have at least FOUR unfinished projects - two of which are from my grandmother (who has been dead for 20+ years)

I live about 100 miles from Gilroy. I'd love to attend the Garlic Festival. I totally love garlic.

Yeah, I'm having baked or oven-fried chicken myself, with some sauteed bok choi.

I have GOT to do this mountain of laundry today! Aside from that, the big thing on my calendar is the season premiere of Next Food Network Star tonight. Can't wait!

That sounds pretty good... Then I'll sprinkle it with a generous amount of lime juice while its grillin' and I'll bet I'll be ready for some darn good grub!

My go-to rub is equal parts of ancho chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. I'm planning to use it on a brisket this weekend.

Saturdays are my husband's steak night. I usually for chicken or fish. Tonight, though I'm thinking steak too. I'm going to make a spicy rub for it though. Now, the only question is, what kind of rub?

How did you make it? The last time I tried it, it turned out a big more tart than I wanted. I think I need to cut the yogurt with coconut milk.
