It's Saturday, it's 12 degrees out this morning. Yesterday, after work, I walked the mall again. (boy that's boring!) But the weight is coming off. Slow, but off. And that's good, because it'll be easier to keep it off. And then when I got home, I had to snow blow the driveway again. I swear, the piles of snow at the end of the driveway are the biggest in probably the 22 years we've lived here! And for supper, Craig made a tasty dish of Hamburger Helper.
I know, your gonna say, Hamburger Helper? But Craig's such a good cook? Well, he is, on our days off. But after working all day, the last thing we want to do is 'prepare' a meal, so that means Wednesday and Thursday, we have leftovers from the previous week, and Friday and Saturday nights, we have something simple. But he did alter it a bit. He added Mushrooms and Onions when he cooked it, and garnished with Tomatoes, so to add a bit more nutrition. And he used Lean Hot Italian Sausage, instead of Ground Beef. Tonight, we are having Chicken Cordon Bleu, Noodles Alfredo, (with light Alfredo Sauce) And Parmesan Zucchini. I know, we tend to eat this dish a lot, but it's easy, and tasty.
Well, time to get ready for work. Later!


  1. Dang, now I'm hungry!
    I know that this is the most snow we've had in the 5 years that I've lived in Michigan!!!
    The spring thaw is gonna be floody muddy!

  2. LOL-- I love (and I mean that sarcastically) how quickly weight comes off men. I've been walking (albeit outside) since July and... NOTHING. Not that I'm trying to sound mean, you understand, it's just that I read this after reading how spring is coming to so many southern gardeners, and well... as a fellow Michigander, I'm sure you know the mood I'm in!

    So which Hamburger Helper did he start with? The changes sound good. :)


  4. I've been doing good on the weight too. I've lost three pounds. Of course Jamie just went to get monster thick burgers from Hardee's so how long do you think that's going to last. :-)
