      We grilled some burgers and I made some fresh cut fries.  Not very healthy, but super good!    : )  I've been wanting to try this recipe that I saw on allrecipes.com.  Love that site!

          Marinated Baked Pork Chops (You can use chicken also if you wanted to)

        I generally go food shopping for the week on a Monday (with a top up shop over the weekend if we're at home) and on Sunday night I try to plan at least Mon-Wed's dinners. My mum got me a subscription to a food magazine for Xmas and one day when I was bored, I went through the whole of this year's mags and made a list of what recipes I wanted to try.


        As we were at home this weekend for a change, I made a traditional British Sunday roast last night (chicken, stuffing, roast potatoes, cauliflower and cabbage). I have some cauliflower and potatoes left so I'm cooking a steak pie (pre-bought and in the freezer) with mashed potatoes and cauliflower cheese and gravy. Mmmmmmmmmmm!

            Since it is the first Monday night of the NFL season - tonight will be buffalo wings (from the freezer) and fries.  I better enjoy eating like this while I can!  My wedding will be November 2011, so I have committed to making an effort to eat better once 2011 starts.  I know if I try to start behaving this early, that I will completely give up before the wedding.  You have to recognize your limitations and work around them :-)

              clgriffi7 - I totally agree. My wedding isn't until August 2012 and it's so hard to get motivated to eat healthily when the end goal seems so far away!

                  Tonight I'm making black bean chilli. Thought it looked delicious in the magazine and healthy too. Not sure what FI will say when he realises there's no meat in it!

                      Here's what we had for dinner tonight.  It was super easy to make and pretty tasty! 


                      Beef Empanadas


                      • 2 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated biscuit dough
                      • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
                      • 8 ounces tomato sauce
                      • 4 teaspoons chopped chilies
                      • 1 tablespoon garlic
                      • 1 1/2 cups cheese
                      • Salt and pepper to taste
                      • 1 egg, lightly beaten
                      • Sour cream (optional)
                      • Mango-peach salsa (optional)


                      1. Brown ground beef.
                      2. Add tomato sauce, chilies, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper.
                      3. Pat out each biscuit on cookie sheet and put about 2 tablespoons of beef mixture on each biscuit.
                      4. Fold biscuits in half and seal the edges by crimping the dough by hand or with a fork.
                      5. Brush top of empanadas with egg and bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees F.
                      6. Optional: Serve with sour cream or a mango-peach salsa on the side.
