Busy bee!

Dragged hiney out of bed at 6:45am and went to the gym. Got my 37 minutes done on the elliptical. Stretched, came home, showered, drank copious amounts of coffee while having breakfast and planning things for the day.

Made a batch of pickled beets. I don't like veg, I'll eat these. I make them with splenda. Yum.

Made a batch of TVP. New stuff, never tried it. Heather and Jo have both blogged about it.

Made a batch of crock pot cheeseburgers, sans the crock pot. I don't know what time I'll be home from work tonight and it said 6 hours...I don't trust the big man to portion out my meals! So, cooked them on top of the stove and divided it into 10 containers. He can have his whenever and I can have mine when I get home from work. Not sure if I'll be putting it in a bun or on baked tortilla chips yet. Here's the recipe if you're interested. Stolen from Heather again. I've never tried them...I'll let you know if I like it or not. I used part of the TVP crumbles and part hamburger in the recipe.

I made a batch of pineapple FAF.

I fixed an awesome lunch. I should have taken a picture of it as it was purty. Sliced potato tossed with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and some sea salt spread on my silpat sheet at 425 for 10 minutes. Flip each circle. Cook 10 more minutes. If they're brown how I like them. Eat. If not, another 5 or so minutes. I got chicken spinach asiago sausages from Sam's and after I took the potatoes out of the bowl I tossed them in the oil in, I rubbed the sausage in it and put that on the pan to bake also. Turned it over when I turned the spuds. Got nice and brown and split open. Was moist and tasty and nummy. I also put 1/2 cup of butternut squash in the oven to heat.

Lunch, eaten, and enjoyed.

Now I'm off to work! A long day. Hopefully home by 9PM.

FAF in hand, dinner planned.

Gotta love a woman with a plan eh????



  1. Crockpot Cheeseburgers are sooooooooooooooo stinkin' good. It looks "soupy" when you cook it on the stove top to start off, but it cooks down quickly. Just stir it now and then and it'll be A-OK. Love these on an arnold sandwich thin! I made them the other day with all TVP, and no one noticed at all. Not even Riley, who happens to be out of this world picky. :)

  2. look at you cooking and planning, planning and cooking!

  3. Love the planner in ya! We might be related! lol :) I saw Heather post on TVP and I added it to a pasta sauce that I made- came out great- adn my picky BF ate it up! lol
