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
recipes.sparkpeople.com/
recipe-detail.asp?recipe=27

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

recipe-detail.asp?recipe=9

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

recipe-detail.asp?recipe=6
9882

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!

    How lucky you both are to have each other. I tried asking my husband more than once but he is just not interested. However, he has lost about 9lbs and would like to lose about 20lbs so only 11 more to go. He is basically following my advice that I receive from SP.

    Yay! A man who cooks AND is supportive!
    My husband is supportive, but when he cooks it's either Pizza Hut or grilled fatty sausages. It's the Australian WAy. emoticon

    Welcome Mr. Bill!

    Trying new recipes is a great way to focus on the positives and not the dieting mentality. I actually like the food I eat now better than before!

    Stopped by and left Bill a welcome message. If he's cooking for you, HOLD ON TO THAT MAN! emoticon Thanks for sharing your Spark Recipe finds. I think one of my goals is going to be trying 2 new recipes a month. I was doing this with some other healthy cookbooks, but got busy w/kids and other stuff. Hubby and kids really liked trying new stuff, and most of the time they love my choices, especially hubby (thankfully, he's not hard to please!). You keep on going, girl! You're doing great!!!
