Fit Meals Monday

I’m so excited to finally be back home!  It was a busy week.  It felt like a whirlwind.  We drove to Arizona for the 2010 Arizona Ironman which my husband participate in on November 21st.  Then we drove to Las Vegas and had a fabulous time with my in-laws.  We had a blast!  We saw took the kiddos to see Tangled and Megamind.  We loved them both!  Though my son knocked off a few points from Tangled’s perfect 10 to a 8 3/4.  He knocked off points for too much singing, an attempted kiss, and a totally landed kiss (adding a yuck to that).  Little boys are so funny!

For Thanksgiving we had a delicious meal, though I can tell you right now that there wasn’t one thing on the menu that was healthy, except for the turkey.   My MIL planned the meal which included baked turkey, collard greens, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese (3 cheeses yum), green beans, and homemade cornbread dressing.  For dessert we had pretzel salad, and peach cobbler.  It was a glorious day of eating.  I know this is a “fitness” blog, and I should be telling you all to eat everything healthy on holidays…but you know what I need to be honest with you, I enjoy a down home meal every once in a while.  I believe if I take care of myself 360ish days a year, I can eat whatever I want about 5 days a year or so.  :)  That being said, I am NOT a food natzi, and hope you too can enjoy some food like your grandma used to make it once in a while without the guilt.  Just make sure you workout, and eat well the other 360ish days a year.  :)

Now…on to the menu.. For those of you that are new to Fit Meals Monday click here.  This week I’m trying to use up the stuff in my freezer/pantry because I plan on doing a Once A Month Cooking Day next week.
