Then I mush it all up in a bowl with 1-2 tbsp of black bean and corn salsa per sausage. This bowl is actually 4 turkey sausages with 4tbsp salsa.
Usually I'm doing this while some frozen veggies are sauteeing up in a non-stick pan.
In the same pan (no oil needed, maybe a spray of Pam) I now brown/sautee/cook the turkey meat.
I used this 4-sausage mixture multiple times actually, but the first night I made lettuce wraps: leaves of romaine with bit's of cheese then put together with the turky and veggies.
Same deal with tuna salad: 1 can tuna, 1-2 tbsp Fage 0% Total Plain Yogurt, some S+P and a forkful or two of spaghetti squash for bulk.
Lettuce seems to be my prefered vector for mushy food.
Sadly, my root canals still being incomplete, it's still solid enough to give me a headache =(
Another breakfast of champions: a small cup of cereal with vanilla soy milk, a Light N' Fit Yogurt and the Fiber One 90 calorie Brownie.
There may have been a snack or three in there too =)
Then, a spaghetti squash fest. A nice big bowl in front of the TV on my lap. My summer dresses are still getting mileage as house dresses!
The turkey sausage made an appearance with a spaghetti squash bed for lunch that day.
I know I promised a squash gratin but the pictures are trapped on Boyfriend's phone, so it's still to be resolved.
I also promised to discuss the weekend status post Thanksgiving.
That Saturday was the bachelorette party for Nurse Z who is getting married this weekend. There was a lot of fun that I am not planning on describing in a blog dedicated to food, however, our dinner at ilili restaurant was amazing. Delicious, flavorful food. Expensive food, but well worth it for her celebration. A note on her upcoming wedding: it's a RUSSIAN wedding, so I will have to expect lots of drinking and way too much eating, think crepe stations. My dress is awfully tight, I suspect that I will mostly be taking bites off of Boyfriend's plate in order to temper the alcohol.
Finally, new thoughts on Bikram Yoga. I still think it's boring, I still have no idea why I sweat that much for such easy poses, but I am finally making it through full classes without needing breaks in between. So I've been alternating 6-8 mile runs (holiday-related increase in intensity both of exercise time and calorie quantity) with Bikram Yoga. I've also heard that the guy who invented Bikram (Mr. Bikram, seriously) is suing another NYC studio for using his moves without paying him royalties! I had no idea yogis would go all litigious and zealously guard their ideas.
