and back to work

Good morning.
Yesterday, with scattered rain all morning, we still managed our 20 minute brisk walk.   :-)
back home, I cleaned, while Craig finished laundry and bookwork. Later, I did some weeding in the yard and Craig vacuumed the house. 
I placed an online order for salon supplies and it should be delivered today. I also made an appointment for my Kia for next Monday. I received a recall notice. Something about the brake lights and some switch.  While I'm there, I'll get an oil change too.

For dinner, we had Morning Star Farms Grillers. They are really pretty close to regular hamburgers!
And I even made home made coleslaw.
 All the coleslaw dressings have either a ton of fat and a ton of sugar. This has almost none of either, and tasted great! And it's really easy too!
I bought a bag of slaw veggies. Mainly diced cabbage and carrots. And for the dressing.....
3 oz.  fat free Greek yogurt.
3 oz. light Miracle Whip.
1 tsp cider vinegar.
1 tsp Dijon mustard.
1 tsp sugar substitute.
That's it!
Mix the ingredients, and toss with 1/2 bag of the slaw. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving.
Just double the recipe for a full bag.
And I did something different with the burgers.
I used lettuce instead of buns.
 Carefully pull off the outer leafs from the head of lettuce. Place a couple together on a plate. Add your burger toppings such as onions, tomato avocado and ketchup.
 Top with cooked burger. Then fat free cheese if you like.
 Fold leafs over burger and eat! The toppings stay neatly inside the pocket of lettuce and makes for a nice crunchy burger! It was really good!
And today, it's back to work, but just for a day, as we're off tomorrow for the 4th. Then I'll be back to work Friday and Saturday.


  1. That looks like a great idea for your burgers!
    Have a great 4th, Wayne!
