Random things worth discussing, I tried to get creative last night with a butternut squash. I baked it at 350 for about 40 minutes. It was getting late and I was getting tired, so I ended up being really uncreative and tossing some shredded Parmesan cheese on top and calling it a night. It was still delicious- sweet potato like-, but I'll do better next time. I served it with steamed broccoli and left over pork roast from Sunday dinner.
Last week, I told y'all about skinny rice dressing, I haven't had a chance to make it on my own just yet, but I feel you need this recipe pre-Thanksgiving next week. yes, Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! I did get to sample the dressing, and it's crazy delicious and guilt free! This makes my inner chunky girl very very happy. I'll be making some for my holiday get together next week. I'll keep the cauliflower rice part to myself and see if anyone notices, tee hee :)
Chop cauliflower in processor until consistency of rice. Put in microwave safe dish with lid and
microwave for 8 minutes.
4 cups rice cauliflower 1 lb. ground turkey
½lb. Italian fresh Italian sausage, casing removed 2 stalks of celery, chopped

1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped 1 tsp fresh Thyme, chopped
½tsp dry sage 1 tsp canola oil
1 c chicken stock
In medium saucepan combine oil, onion, celery and fresh herbs and sautέ 3-5 minutes. Add sausage and turkey; brown. Add 1 cup chicken stock. Bring to boil. Stir into rice cauliflower. Salt and pepper to taste.
I hope to accomplish the impossible this year and lose weight over the holidays. I'm running two 5ks in the next week and I'm participating in Pile on The Miles through Run Eat Repeat. Are you? I set a goal to run 60 miles in November and I've run 22.37 thus far. I'm aiming to get in about 15 this week.
If I'm feeling better tomorrow morning, I'll make up this morning's missed work out then. If not, I'm not going to make myself any sicker just to get in two two-a-days this week. That's just dumb, and my Momma didn't raise no fool.
Running into work this morning all buddled up.
I will not get sick, I will not get sick, I will not get sick...
