Wrap up to Tuesday…it IS Tuesday isn’t it?

It turned out to be a beautiful October day. Sunshine, crisp and cool. That’s Ted mowing the lawn…the grass just won’t stop growing. This morning was cold..34 degrees.brrr11120but Shane and I ventured out for a 30+ minute walk. His leg is FINALLY better. 

Getting up was easier and I ended up doing 40 min. of running on the treadmill. I worked back and triceps today but should’ve gone a bit heavier. Oh well…always tomorrow.

Since I wanted to try a recipe to include on the trip this weekend, I doubled it and made up part of the ingredients because I didn’t want to freeze the salmon.  I call them “Spicy Salmon Bean Patties”.

I used 1 14 oz can Pink Salmon + 1 can of cannellini beans(drain&rinse) + 2tbs garbonzos (left over from lunch). The above was added last because I made a double batch of the following to use on Thurs. when I make them for our trip:  Combine in food processor: 1 chopped red onion (remember…this is doubled to use 1/2 w/ the above salmon & beans!) + 6 tsp minced garlic + 4 tsp curry powder + 1 tsp red pepper + 1/2 cup fresh mint + 2 tsp ground cumin + 1 1/2 tsp tabasco sauce + S&P to taste. Separate in 1/2 and to the 1/2 for tonights dinner, I added the salmon and beans + 1 tsp lemon juice.  Mix together 1/4 c parmesan cheese+ 1 tsp each: cilantro, paprika, brown sugar.  I sprinkled and pressed onto each patty the cheese mixture.  For Thurs., I will add a bit of brown sugar to my mint & pepper mix and maybe an extra can of beans.  I will also form them into bit size appetizer patties and come up w/ some kind of dipping sauce.  Any suggestions?  What do you think about the sugar to tone down the heat?

Well, now it’s off to watch the debate…. Go ……I’m not telling!

A healthy start

A healthy start

 One of my favorite grain breakfasts is cream of rye.  If you haven’t tried it, you should. It offers a slightly different texture to oatmeal, maybe a bit courser?  I make it as follows: 1/3c cream of rye, 2/3c water(you might want more to obtain your fav. consistency), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp craisins, 1 tbsp canned pumpkin (’tis the season) : bring to a boil, then let simmer for about 15 min. I usually put it on when I am getting Shane’s breakfast ready and my protein drink. When it boils I turn it to simmer and go up stairs to shower. By the time I come back down it’s ready.  I also have a protein drink when I have grains and fruit in the morning.  I use 1 scoop of whey protein + 3 oz of fresh raspberries, lots of ice and about 12 oz water in a blender.  Note the 4 sliced stawberries added to the rye cereal. All that keeps me going until about 9:30am when I need a cup of coffee.  Then 10:30 I need a morning snack.  This morning it was an apple plus 1 tbs nat.more p-nut butter and 1 tbs bettern butter. 

Since the paper was late (grrrr), it’s off to work!  Have a super day!
