Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! My week flew by. Is anyone else finding that to be the case?

Well in 21 days my son will turn 4. See time just flies. I can’t believe he will be 4. His theme this year is all things Veggie Tales. He cake will be Larry Boy from the show but can you beleive I can’t find a Veggie Tale pinata anywhere. If I was crafy I would make one. I think I am going to have to order supplies online because I can’t find plates and such in stores. I guess i should have made sure I got stuff before selecting a theme.  So I pray I can find some stuff to make is a hit.

Okay so this week I managed to lose 2 lbs. Yeah me! All I am really doing is watching portions and trying to eat better foods. I still do snacking on some not so great foods but I don’t binge on them. I think not over thinking this whole thing has really helped. Also I have been reviewing some great healthy snacks. Check out my giveaways. They are all so yummy.

My friend Chef Jeff puts out a newsletter, which everyone should get, and with each one is a recipe. Here is one. Enjoy!

BBQ Sloppy Joes

This is how they eat them in the South! Not really, I just modeled
it after a typical North Carolina BBQ Pork Sandwich.


Serves 4

Cook time: 15 minutes

2  cups chopped Cabbage
1/4  cup Mayonnaise, reduced fat
1  tablespoon Vinegar
1/4  cup Sugar
1  pound Ground Beef reduced fat
1/2  cup Barbecue Sauce
4  Whole Wheat Hamburger Roll

Mix the cabbage, mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar, and set aside in
the fridge. Meanwhile Brown the beef in a nonstick skillet; add the
BBq sauce and simmer for a minute or two. Spoon the BBq beef on the
buns and top with the coleslaw.

As a full-time career oriented mother of one, I love to chat and write about topics that matter to me in my life. My day has to starts with a cup of joe and usually ends with exhaustion. I have a passion for cross stitching and of course spending time with the kiddo. I am always on the look out for topics to write about like recipes, healthy living, and products I find fascinating.
