I’m Thinking Something with a Tortilla Chip…

Good Tuesday! Luv-lies,

I’m sure that, with The Fourth of July being a couple of days away,  your weekly ‘To-do’ list is as jammed packed as mine.  I haven’t quite figured out what’s on the menu.  Frankly, it’s past the point of worrying about the menu.  It’s times like this that I am sooooooooo  glad for the blogosphere! 🙂

I’m thinking simple.  Simple ingredients.  Simple in preparation time.   But not simple in flavor.

Maybe some type of  ‘taco inspired’ dish

Maybe one of these …

My first #RuleOfFood is … You should always have a ‘Great Go-To Salad’

This one’s made my list

Easy Like Sunday Morning & A Late 4th of July Post…..

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Just checking in to see how everyone’s 4th of July holiday panned out. I started the morning, early – my body forgot that it did not have to go into work that morning *bummer* 😛 with my usual cup of jo, 2 boiled egg whites and a bowl of mixed berries ~5PPV…YEY!!!!!.

As the early morning hours slowly inched toward mid-morning, I indulged in watching a steady stream of pre-recordings of my favorite Sunday morning show, CBS Sunday Morning, previously hosted by the late, Charles Kuralt – whose baritone voice is the real reason that I tuned in. Kuralt’s soothing voice has since been replaced by that of Charles Osgood – voice equally as appealing ;-).

The leisure of the morning was interrupted by a much anticpated-early afternoon- two hour-jammed pack-music infused Zumba class. I soooo look forward to this class with this instructor! She is FanTabuLous!!! 
Her classes are flooded with great music and loads of energy…. can you say “Cardio on steroids”!?

Needless to say, the Zumba class set me up juuuuust nicely for the pending holiday foodfest 🙂
Initially, I had planned to stop past one of my favorite eateries and have my holiday feast there. However, my spontaneous alter-ego took over and I decided to spend that time at home with a ‘home grilled meal’. Thank goodness for the weekly meeting where we went over ‘how not to pig out during the holiday’! Since this was an unplanned meal (had I gone to my favorite restaurant, I would have known what I was going to eat :-P) I had to figure out what was going to make for a flavorful and filling meal that did not make me spend my remaining PPVs and that was fit for grilling. This task called for a trip to my new found digital shelves that house my virtual library. Once there, it did not take me long to find just the meal….
Shrimp and Kielbasa Kabobs… {yumminess on a skewer & Only 7PPV ~ YeY!}.

… my delicious and savory eat is pictured below…. What do you think?… Yum-cious – right?

After the meal, I spent the remainder of the afternoon ‘chillaxin’… gearing up for an evening of fireworks that the city government’s office promised to be stupendously spectacular !

Two hours later, tired but in a satisfied and fulfilled kind of way, I returned home to quietly reflect on the wonderful, unplanned hours of the day.
