If you have not read this blog, it is full of really great recipes. But, the one I make over and over is this one. The Taco Soup Recipe. It is inexpensive, and full of things that are good for you and filling. Plus, I love anything you can serve with Tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese.
Here is a picture of mine in the slow cooker…
We had some tonight, but it will be oh so much better tomorrow. That’s why I made it, as I invited my bro-ham over for his birthday.
Today was such a stereotypical Monday. Rain and all. I am glad it’s nearly over, and I am soon going to get a really good night’s sleep. I slept terribly last night due to sleeping in so late on Sunday, and the sinus headache/stuffiness I am experiencing right now. So, I was somewhat emotional all day, which would explain the tears of joy and pride I had today at the end of Zumba.
You see, I am a binge eater, and a compulsive eater. And I’ve been pretty good as of late, until this past Friday-Sunday. It was a free for all, eat every thing in sight kind of weekend. It’s a little weird because I did pretty well on Thanksgiving Day. Anyway, all day today I had a food hangover, and I was suffering from lack of sleep. It was the perfect scenario for the old me to say, “Fugedda ’bout it. Eat all you want. In fact, have a free for all until Christmas, it’s only 3 weeks away.”
But instead, I tracked all of my food today, I stayed in my daily allowance of Weight Watchers points, and I went to Zumba EVEN though my plans after school did not go as I had wanted them to (read: I left my purse at school and had to go back to school after being at the store to get it to buy the ingredients for the taco soup). This is a HUGE step for me, people! Ha ha. Normally, when one little thing goes wrong, it’s my sign to fall off the wagon, and take the one way train to hot mess-dom.
Now, I have a mound of 6th grade math tests to grade, and a very messy kitchen. But, I don’t even care that much, because I feel good about me.
