Blogging about my dinner. Yeah!!!

Since a lot of people have been asking about my weight loss and what I've been doing to lose it, I've decided to join the millions of Americans and blog about it. 
We filled our tummies tonight with a delicious taco salad with some homemade salsa that Jason's mom gave us. With in the time it took Jason to screw a night light to the wall and change the sheets on Phoenix's bed I had dinner made, that's how easy it was, and the best part about it was the carb count. Lets give it a big fat ZERO. There are so few carbs in this dish that its not even worth counting them.
So here's the skinny (lol, pun intended) about taco salad.
  • lb ground beef
  • Taco seasoning
  • Walla walla sweet onion
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • Home made Salsa
  • Green pepper
  • Pablano Pepper
  • Yellow Banana Pepper
  • Sour cream
Mix all these ingredients in a bowl and enjoy. 

On another note, I had a wonderful day with my boys. We played with our new puppy Laddi. She is a 2 year old min pin. Interesting fact, min pins have been around about 200 years longer the doberman pincers, unlike popular belief that they are a smaller breed of doberman. They are actually a cross between a grey hound and dachshund, weird. That would explain the faster than light circle around my front yard.

Jason had a good day selling Jeep parts to weirdo's from the internet. I think its his new hobby. He also likes surfing the free listings on craigslist. I wonder how much junk we are going to end up with now that Jason has a running truck? We... Shall... See...

We've been doing so well the last couple of days with Phoenix's potty training that I decided to put him in underpants for half the day. It worked out well, no accidents. I figured when he was wiping it out to pee on the fire wood Jason was pilling in the fire pit, or peeing on the tree's in the front yard, he was probably ready to be a big boy. Cross your fingers for tomorrow.

I'm probably going to be scolded for this but we finally moved the boys out of our bedroom and into their own room. I know its weird to have them sleeping in our room, but I'm very protective of my children and didn't feel safe in our neighborhood at first. Now that its been 2 years since we've moved here and this small town girl has gotten used to the big city, I'm more comfortable letting my children sleep in a different room.

It has been a good labor day weekend and I'm so glad I got to spend it with my boys. Have a wonderful week and until next time, Selah.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
