Thanksgiving in June

Though he wasn't complaining, I realized that I've been feeding my hunny quite a few rice-and-bean meals this week. I thought I'd cook something more "traditional" for dinner last night, and you can't get more so than Thanksgiving, right?

I had some Gardein Turk'y Cutlets in the freezer, so I served them along with fresh steamed green beans, mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy.  Of course since it's not really a holiday I didn't bother with pumpkin pie and the rest of the feast, this was just enough to make Chip dig in with a big smile on his face. And since the calorie count of this meal was under 500, it's a helluva lot healthier than any T-Day meal I've ever consumed!

I captured a photo but honestly, there's nothing all that pretty about "brown" food..shrug..

Chip had to work last night so I was left to my own devices.  I logged 30 minutes on the treadmill, then settled in with a bowl of air-popped popcorn to catch up on Mad Men. Let me tell you, I love my old-school air popper! Since I bought this thing, not one bite of chemical-laden, potentially dangerous microwave junk has passed my lips. I tried Dr. Barnard's Curry Popcorn recipe for the first time, yum! I didn't miss the artificial flavorings/fat one bit, a much healthier snack food.

Well, I guess that's all for now, folks.  I have errands to run and then a date with the treadmill, happy hump day!
