Well this week wasn’t as great as the previous week. I didn’t work out as much and I indulged in
a bottle a glass of wine.
My damages this week:
Loss/Gain: +.6 lbs
Total Loss: -7.4
I figured I would either not lose or gain a bit this week. Especially since I had a huge loss last week. And consumed wine and pizza this weekend. I’m not upset about it, I still made awesome choices this past week. Instead of 3-4 slices of pizza I had s side salad and only 2 small slices. So go me!
My plan this week is to continue working out and not go bat shit crazy on Turkey Day!
Speaking of Turkey Day, my mom has been busy with getting ready to head outta town and dropping her dog off at our house. So she totally forgot yo weigh I’m this week. Guess I’ll let it slide!
I’m still loving the scale! It’s great how it gives you the total lost since starting! Such an awesome feature.
So, if you are wanting a Zero Scale of your very own, I have a code you can use to get 15% off your scale! All you do is type in the word “ZERO” when you place your order! I suggest you go buy one now! Or at least put it on your Christmas list! (code is good through December 23, 2012)
Now on to a delicious recipe!
If you ‘Like’ me on Facebook, then you might have seen my post raving about a new recipe B-Fry and I tried. I promised the recipe last week, but life happens. So here it is this week!
Thai Burgers and Peanut Sauce
(adapted from here)
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1 Tbsp chile paste w/ garlic
2 tsp grated ginger
2 tsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1 pound ground turkey
Mix all these ingredients together and form 4 patties. Cook in a skillet over medium high heat until cooked throughly.
They should look a bit like this:
While the burgers are cooking, mix up your peanut sauce
2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
2 tsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp water
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
I threw all of this into my Magic Bullet until well blended. I then popped it in the microwave for just a few seconds to warm it up and make it melty. Don’t do it too long or you’ll burn the peanut butter!
Mine looked like this:
To go along with the burgers I whipped up an asian type slaw with some broccoli slaw and these two ingredients…
Mixed it all together and got this yummy looking and tasting slaw:
And here’s the final product! B-Fry and I decided the burgers didn’t need buns. I thought they were great without all the bread! And the slaw was a great side to go with it. I loved them and so did B-Fry!!
This will definitely be made in the future! It was a great combo and had the right amount of spice. My mouth is watering thinking about them!
Have you tried any new recipes lately?
I’ve been finding a lot of new ones thanks to my obsession with Pinterest!
