Weekend Confessions

Have you heard of Penzey's Spices?  If you haven't, check them out; you are welcome. 

I used their Northwoods Seasoning on veggie skewers for our 4th of July grilling.


Delicious!!! I tossed my cut veggies with olive oil and a liberal sprinkling of this seasoning, then threaded them on metal skewers and grilled.  Fantastic!  We also had some beef ribs and light homemade potato salad.  What did you grill for the holiday?

As far as the rest of the weekend goes I did fairly well on food choices, but did indulge in a shrimp po-boy from BB's Cafe on Friday.  It was yummy.  I wish I could report that I was a rock star gym rat over the weekend, but I would be lying.  I did work a jigsaw puzzle, but I am pretty sure that has a significant less amount of calorie burn.  I do much better during the week.

Tonight on the menu is whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce and a big salad.  This will be served after a nice long bike ride.  Let's go Monday!

  1. I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE Penzey's fan! My favorite is Mural of Flavor. I also love Fox Point, Chicago Steak Seasoning, and Mitchel''s Street. They also have great salt-free taco seasoning and Italian seasoning!

  2. Mmmmmm. Those veggies do look delicious. I will have to check out that spice. I am a huge spice fan. Thanks for the recommendation. I didn't get in too much purposeful exercise this past week. I was out of town. I did do a lot of walking. I am kind of itching to get back into the gym. That doesn't happen often.haha

  3. I love that motivational poster! I need to remind myself that. I so often think I won't be good enough until a certain size, but I will never be happy at any size unless I love and accept myself NOW. Thanks girl!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I LOVE zucchini, squash, and onion. I also add tomatoes. I like to mix a little olive oil, rosemary, garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice in a bowl then toss in the veggies. I prefer to cook them on the grill, but sometimes I just cook it in a skillet. It's SO good.
