The Man. The Myth. The Legend!
My very own Mr. Bill!
Yea, it's not like I talked him into joining SP or setting up a Spark page simply so we can add his fitness minutes to Portland's quest to overcome Seattle in the Spark America Fitness Challenge or anything. Ahem.
Have any of your spouses taken an active interest in SparkPeople?
Yep, this is the man who has been doing all our cooking lately, and quite well I might add. Last week, we had several SP recipes on our menu, and there wasn't a bad one in the bunch!
We started off with New Orleans Red Beans
While it's a vegetarian dish, we added a few roasted red pepper and spinach chicken sausages, and served it over rice. Talk about YUM!
Next was the Slow Cooker Chicken and Hominy Chili
We were a little skeptical - chili, after all, is RED, and this wasn't. Let me tell you though, it packed a punch with the spicy zippy taste of the jalepenos and cumin. So so good!
We rounded out the week with Turkey and Black Bean Sloppy Joes
This one needs a few tweaks, but overall, it's really good and tasty. People at work the next day were coming by and sniffing my lunch and asking where I'd gotten it LOL
Each recipe made enough servings that I could take some for lunch the next day. That's always a bonus. We even froze a few bowls of the red beans to have something delish and quick if we needed a lunch in the middle of a busy weekend. It's perfect.
Speaking of eating.. we have our grocery list and menu all planned out and printed this morning. I admit I'm lollygagging about and being slow to get up and get moving, but then.. isn't that what Sundays are for?
I have a few more blogs buzzing around in my noggin today that I hope I can get out soon. Until then, Spark on my peoples!
