I made a delicious skirt steak using this recipe
I served it over spinach and/or kale and had enough for a few meals. I served it with either sweet potatoes, asparagus or even both depending how lazy I was feeling. I also browned some lean ground beef and mixed in some veggies and served it with an egg for dinner one night too. I am all about these quick recipes. I am getting more used to just going in my refrigerator and throwing some stuff together, haven't had a flop yet!
I also made a bacon, onion kale salad. I just cooked my bacon and onion in a pan, and then tossed in some kale to get some extra bacon/onion flavor and ate it just like that. It was super quick and easy, and filled me up!
I made myself another batch of homemade mayo to keep up with my tuna/chicken salad fixins, have eaten eggs in about any form you could imagine and have tried to up my veggie intake even more. Last night for dinner I sauteed broccoli, cauliflower and shrimp in olive oil, seasoned with a little salt and pepper. I figured I could afford to cut down on the red meat and eggs a little.
Tonight, I plan on having some sort of concoction similar to last night. Full of veggies and maybe throwing in a little chicken or shrimp, or both if I am feeling especially feisty.
I am also embarking on a workout journey tonight. I joined The Kroc last week with Dave. I am pretty pumped, it opened this weekend and I think it is really going to be a nice place, plus it solves my pool problem for the summer. We are going tonight to explore and I will get in a little work out too. Let's keep our fingers crossed that I don't die from participating in physical activity.
Hope you all have a wonderful week, and I will be back this weekend with my final update!
