I was very worried that my legs were not going to hold up to a power walk/jog this morning, but I did pretty good! The weather was brisk, which felt great, and we probably did 3.5 miles or so.
Afterwards, we headed over to Whole Foods and Trader Joes for a couple of things. Among the purchases were:
Got plans for those babies!!
On the way home we decided to stop at a local farm to see the cows and get lunch for the kids.
Surprisingly, I did not get any pictures of the cows. 🙂
The kids passed out in the car on the way home, so I was able to make lunch for Officer M and myself un-interrupted!
The plan was Asian Lettuce Wraps – but I didn’t actually want the lettuce, so I threw it in a bowl:
You know my recipes by now – super simple!
1lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 pkg Coleslaw Mix (or plain cabbage)
4 cloves Garlic
2 tbsp Sesame Oil
1/4 c Lower Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp Onion Powder
Green Onion (to taste)
2 tsp Ground Ginger (although fresh would probably be better!)
Garlic Chili Pepper Sauce (to taste)
Heat a saute pan and add 1tbs oil with 3 garlic cloves. Cook until fragrant. Add ground turkey. While the turkey cooks add in 1 tsp ginger, garlic powder and some of the chili pepper sauce. When the turkey is cooked through, transfer it to a bowl. Put the pan back on the heat and add another tbsp of sesame oil and 1 garlic clove. Toss in the coleslaw and let it soften up a bit. Add in the soy sauce and mix well. Add the turkey back in as well as the green onion and more chili sauce. Let it cook over low heat for a few minutes to let the flavors meld. Serves 4.
