Friday Night’s Eats:
We made bratwurst and fries! Brats are easy and fast. When I get home from swimming, I’m always famished. Brats are perfect for that. The fries we made were store-bought and 120 calories a serving. I like those numbers! The hidden calories to watch for are in the ketchup. Ketchup has a lot of sugar in it–no wonder I LOVE ketchup!
I had a glass of my favorite wine as well.
Saturday Night’s Eats:
Our favorite dinner after a long bike ride is Turkey burgers. Michael makes the best turkey burgers in my opinion. He mixes chopped jalapeños and Colby Jack cheese in it.
On the Sandwich thins, I used mustard, light mayo, and spinach.
Tonight’s dinner was an experiment really…I picked up two sweet potatoes at the store. Neither of us had ever had sweet potatoes before so I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out. I baked them for about an hour at 400 degrees. They were wonderful! I think they were much better than regular baked potatoes honestly. They didn’t really need anything on them besides butter. With regular baked potatoes I want cheese, sour cream and bacon them.
Sunday was a pretty busy day for me. I swam, went grocery shopping. finished Mad Men Season 2, went to a friend’s baby shower, and then Michael and I went on an hour long bike ride. I burned 336 calories in that hour.
We tried a new wine tonight, a very good Syrah.
Delicious! Now, time for the Blazer Game.
QUESTION: What is your favorite dinner? Do you make it a lot or is it a once in awhile treat?
