write em down

i’m like a big ball of energy today,  there’s so much i want to do and get done. must be the optimism of a new year. as i was trying to figure out how i would get everything done i thought hmm. “maybe i should start with a to do list”.

to do:

  • workout (always, always, always, make your workouts a priority. write em down, schedule them in, do whatever you have to do to make yourself accountable.)
  • bake cupcakes for the little aprons birthday
  • make granola
  • clean refrigerator
  • balance checkbook
  • try a new recipe for dinner

What’s on your to do list?

remember this soup and how said it was awful? well it was. i have a better soup for you that i think you will like.

many times when i get home from work i’m not able to eat until 9:00pm.  i usually opt for something light and easy, either a smoothie or bowl of soup.

since it’s been so cold lately i’ve been reaching for the soup. this is one of my favorite soup creations.

Maria’s tomato soup:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup low sodium tomato soup (trader joe’s, or pacific brand)
  • 1 serving meatless meatballs (about six)

Directions:

1. Cook the tomato soup and meatless balls until warm.

2. Add spinach and cook until just wilted.

3. Top with red pepper flakes and parm cheese.

on the side, a slimwich bun grilled with a string cheese.

 i wasn’t in the mood for dessert last night, how’s your challeng coming along?
