Boy, when I woke up it hurt to take my first step out of bed. My calves got such a workout yesterday; I didn’t realize it until I was walking away from the bed. I wanted to hit Pilates again this morning, but thought better of that idea. 🙂

So instead, I did something better (as I type facetiously).  I got a Starbucks Tall Pumpkin Spiced Iced Latte with Soy Milk instead. There’s 5 or 600 calories of sugar and fat I can’t get back!

Garden Green Salad

For lunch I made a Garden Green Salad with a bunch of great Vegetables in it. Today, I added Raisins and an Oil & White Balsamic Vinegar Dressing.

Garden Green Salad:

Ingredients:

1-Bag of Spring Salad

4 Mushrooms

4 Green Onions

1 Avocado

1 Orange Bell Pepper

1 Tomato

1/4Cup Raisins

Directions: Wash the Spinach and Baby Greens from the Salad Mix Bag. Wash and chop up the Vegetables. Add the Raisins and Dressing and serve.  

Oil & Vinegar Dressing:

Ingredients:

2 Tbls. Olive Oil

2 Tbls. White Balsamic Vinegar

I’ve got to say, my experimenting is getting better and better. I had just a little bit the Whole Grain Rigatoni left, so I heated it up and had that as well.

Assorted Danish Cake

What's Left of Assorted Danish Cake

And I hate to say this, or even document it, but I had yet some more morsels of the Danish Assorted Cake Mike bought at Costco. This is what was left of the Assorted Danish Cake after I got my hands on it. Both Mike and I had a part to play in polishing off the tin of Danish. It’s ruining everything I’ve done so far by going to the Pilates classes this week.! But I’m happy to write, Mike ate the last of the Danish, so thankfully there are no more temptations.!!!

For dinner, I made Mike’s son Roasted Potatoes and Onions with some Paprika, Parsley and other Seasonings. I have to say, it was really good for no other dinner preparations. I thought I’d pour some Olive Oil into a Sauté Pan and threw in the cut up Potatoes with their skin still on. I did the Potatoes first, because it takes them longer to cook. Then I added the Onions. But the Potatoes were falling apart and kind of burning to the bottom of the pan. So I turned down the heat and added some more Olive Oil and then I added the Seasonings and let the Onions cook. 

Potatoes & Onions:

Ingredients:

6 Medium Potatoes

1 Medium Yellow Onion

3Tbls. Olive Oil

1/4 Cup Parsley

1/4 Cup Paprika

1 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Sea Salt

Directions:

Wash and cut Potatoes into 1/4-inch cubes then slice Onions into thin slices. Heat Olive Oil in Sauté Pan and add Potatoes, sliced Onions, then seasonings. Let ingredients soften and meld together. 

While I was making the Potatoes and Onions, I decided to have the left over Fresh Vegetable Salad I made the night before. I also had some Whole Grain Rigatoni from the day before. BUT much to my surprise, the Fresh Vegetable Salad didn’t keep very well. The Vinegar in it became too overpowering, making it too sour and tart to eat. So I had some of the Potatoes & Onions.

For dessert, I drank some Carrot Juice with a couple more pieces of Danish! I can’t believe it… just because this food is in the house I feel I need to eat it. This is not right!!!!!
