My workouts started last Wednesday with Rockin' Body. I feel so uncoordinated trying to do these dance moves. My body just doesn't shake/twist/move/etc the same way theirs do! Best burn so far was when I made a combo day.
Even though it was before my time (wink wink) I felt better coordinated with the disco days. This is also the workout that so far produces the highest burn alone. You can see with how high my heart rate averages (nearly at the max) and maxed out 10 above my max setting. The average was a little lower the second time I did it.
Rockin' Body has to go back to the library this weekend but I've gone ahead and purchased it so I can continue. (Shh Benny doesn't know this!)
Last Wednesday night I made the Chicken Cordon Blue Bake recipe from Relish. I didn't think it had enough flavor then but when I heated leftovers for lunch yesterday...OMG it was sooo delicious! I guess it's one of those recipes that's better the second time around.
Thursday, instead of Relish's Salmon Burger recipe I just did my regular salmon cakes recipe (from grandma)...so nothing really special. I made the meatballs and sauce for the Swedish Meatballs recipe that night also. The meatballs baked nicely but I just couldn't get the sauce to thicken.
Friday, I used Relish's Flank Steak Gyros recipe for the meat but my own recipe for the tzatziki. What they had listed just was missing a little something. No pictures were taken but Benny said the Flank Steak was the right meat so now I know what to get when we want to go Greek again LOL
I saved the Swedish Meatballs meal for Saturday since Austin said he likes them. The sauce still wasn't thick so that was blah but the meatballs were wonderful! Melt in your mouth type meatballs! I wish I'd at least taken a picture of the steps for them to share.
Sunday I made a modified version of the Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole....modified because we use ground beef not ground turkey, we don't like olives, and I didn't pick up any pepperoni. I did take pictures of this one and will have a post for it sometime this weekend. Here's a sneak peak of the leftovers...
Monday I made the Chicken with Clementine Salsa. The recipe calls for it to be grilled but we don't own a grill and it's way to cold to be outside anyway. OMG it was sooo good! There were a couple of things I changed with the recipe but it was wonderful anyway. Here's a sneak peak of my plate...
