A Successful Day AND Evening!

August 31, 2016

Yesterday, I woke up with an agenda, and I was fairly certain that I knew everything that I needed to do for the day, and the evening.

I woke up and hopped on the scale. Down 2 pounds from the morning before. It will take me about 5 days to get back to where I was. I think it is mostly water. Remember…..kankles.

Yesterday, I posted a short blog, made breakfast, went to Yoga (not hot either, just plain ole), then I got busy on the computer. There is a lot to know about being a WW Leader that has nothing to do with being a WW Leader! Well, okay it does, but I never really thought about all of the behind the scenes stuff. Employee email to set up, timesheet program to learn about with a code for everything that you do, training manuals online. training videos online, and a lot of things to download and become familiar with. Lots of reading and learning yesterday.

When I began to feel like my brain might explode with all of the new information that I put in it, I took a break from learning and did a little food prep. I made some Roasted Butternut Squash and cut up a bunch of veggies and Chicken Sausage for our skillet dinner last night.

Dinner – 9 SP

I made a Skillet dish with Rotisserie Chicken, Chicken Sausages, Mushrooms, Bell Peppers, Red Onion, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Roasted Butternut Squash. I had everything all cut up from my afternoon prep and in one container, except for the butternut squash. It is in a separate container. Come time to eat, I took enough out for Mike and I and tossed it in a hot skillet with a little Olive Oil. I have plenty for tonights dinner too.

This meal is inspired from an item on our menu at the Food Truck called The Cowboy Skillet. We serve it mostly in the Fall. It has Cooked Chicken, Andouille Sausage, Roasted White Potatoes, Corn, Zucchini, Mushrooms and Bell Peppers. The seasonings are a secret, so I can’t share that, but it does make it taste amazing!! We also have a great Jalapeño Aioli that we like to put on it at the Food Truck that is to die for. Dang, I hope we have that back on the menu soon!!

You could do any combo really of Cooked Chicken and your favorite Sausage with a few veggies tossed in and your favorite seasoning! What an easy dinner! Look at all of those veggies!

    That Skillet dish comes together so quick Nancy. You should give it a try. You could have dinner for four nights and I really don’t think you be bored of it. I think it only took me about 20 minutes to take the meat off of the rotisserie chicken, dice up the chicken sausage, and chop up some veggies. If you don’t want to roast butternut squash, this skillet would taste great without it!

    The only dish you have to do each night is the skillet that you cook it in and your plate!

  3. Congratulations on your new WW leadership position! Aaannndddd I can so relate to the cankle issue…….ugh, must be the 2 glasses of wine last night🤔😬

  4. You are always working at something.
    It motivates me to do more –like preparing more meals at home.
    That sausage dish looks really good–that is one that will be in my future. (Right now I hit fast food on the way home because I’m hot and tired–mostly salads.)
