Spanish Rice

Today was a nice day handling stuff at home, fertilized the veggie garden, cleaned, worked on Rusty J’s music video, and made dinner with Lindsey among other things. Lindsey’s friend Mikey even came and joined us for dinner!

For dinner we went to the hispanic market by my house and got Carne Asada, so I made Spanish Rice to go with it!

Enjoy!

Also here is how Lindsey cooked the Carne Asada! (I’ve always made it on the BBQ but this was great as well!)

She cut up the meat.

Then sautéed it until well cooked.

It was sooo damn good! I think she also added a little beer near the end!

We ate all this with some salsa verde, queso fresco, warmed tortillas and avocado! Perfect quick dinner!

High Protein Breakfast

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!! I hope everyone has a beautiful day!

So…
Last night I cooked up some ground turkey I love the stuff! That morning I had gone to Costco (almost completely ran out of TP, not good), and when I’m there I try to pick up ground turkey. It’s cheaper there, At the store it’s usually $4.50 – 5.50 for 1.25 Lbs, at Costco it comes in a 4 pack for $15-17. I bought two 4 packs, so 10 pounds. I really do love ground turkey as you can tell.

After I cooked it up with simple seasoning, I separated it into 4 oz servings as its 160 calories for 4 oz.

Here’s my breakfast using the left over ground turkey.

• Grab 1 or 2 Eggs, (I used two)

• Start scrambling them over low heat20130214-011406.jpg

Once it’s mostly cooked,

• Add 4 oz ground turkey. and stir it in.20130214-011427.jpg20130214-011436.jpg

• Next I added 1/4 Jasmine Rice that was leftover as well. 20130214-011638.jpg20130214-011649.jpg

• Season to taste. ( I used minimal since my rice and turkey were already seasoned)

• Once everything is warmed through, plate, and enjoy!! I also sprinkled a little dil on top after playing. 20130214-011824.jpg20130214-011833.jpg

This breakfast is great, 380 calories, 35.5g Protein, 17.5 g Carbs! 20130214-012740.jpg The only thing bad is the 17 g fat. Though egg whites would take that down to, 8 g fat and 290 calories!
