Since this past Monday, I've been watching my carbs...and trying to do without.
My shorts and capris are snug.....it's okay, it's my own fault. I think I don't have to watch what I eat or exercise regularly. I want to be healthy and feel good in my clothes...but, when it comes down to it,
I lack the discipline to do so. It's such a daily battle for me...and frankly I get tired of hearing myself complain about it. Oh how I would like to lose 20 lbs once and for all and never talk
about this again. It's a choice, and I need to start making better ones.
I thought I would share a few easy recipes that I have tried recently.
The recipe calls for scallions....but I didn't have any on hand. I've had it both ways...and I would go with the scallions if you're going to try it!
These are fresh baked green beans. I had never baked green beans before...unless you count them in a casserole! My friend Angie's husband said this is how he likes to cook them. I mixed them with a little olive oil and salt and put them on a cookie sheet. I baked them at 350 for about 25 minutes. They were delicious! They almost didn't even taste like green beans!
This is my favorite summer salsa. Black beans, corn (from the cob!), tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, olive oil and cilantro. It's so fresh. I just need to come up with something other than tortilla chips to put it on!
I got this recipe from Nicolle. Jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and chives, wrapped in bacon and then grilled. If you want to see a more appetizing picture...you'll have to check out Nicolle's picture!
I just tried these too...also found on Nicolle's blog. Many of you talk about Pioneer Woman's cookbook.
Nicolle is MY pioneer woman!
Raspberries with a chocolate chip. What a treat. Of course, I put these together
last week...cause remember, I'm watching my carbs this week!
Can you believe it's July 1st already?
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
