weekend in review
This weekend was good.
Probably the best weekend we’ve had in a while. And ironically we didn’t really do anything.
We needed it.
I finished the book, One Day, and honestly this might move onto my top 10 list of favorite books of all time. It was that good (in my opinion). I also started American Wife and it is really good so far.
The Cowboys won. This made Keith happy and on football Sunday a happy husband makes for a good day! (We won’t talk about the Colts game)
I washed all my clothes. I know this doesn’t sound like it would be fun but my basket was overflowing. In fact, I hadn’t done laundry in 3 weeks. So getting that done was a huge monkey off my back. Oh and now I don’t have to go buy clean underwear because I have some neatly folded in my drawer.
I made a killer green smoothie. It had 1 cup almond milk, big handful of spinach, 1 tbsp. peanut butter and 1 cup frozen blueberries. It was lick the glass good.
I got my wedding and engagement rings cleaned! I now feel very bling bling.
And I made stuffed bell peppers which I haven’t made in easily a year so it was a nice change up to our normal dinner routine.
Stuffed Bell Peppers
4 large bell peppers (any color)
1 pound lean ground beef, cooked
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese
1 cup cooked brown rice
2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix, dry
1 cup canned tomato sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice the tops off the peppers and then slice in half lengthwise; remove seeds, wash and pat dry. Place pepper halves in a small baking dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray and roast for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, brown beef (bison or turkey…whatever you are using) in a skillet. Drain off excess fat. Stir to combine all ingredients, except for peppers; set aside.
Remove peppers from oven and reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. Evenly spoon mixture into pepper halves and return to oven for 20 more minutes.
How was your weekend?
