New Favorite Recipe

As I have stated before, I love to cook. Unfortunately most of my favorite cooking includes comfort foods and desserts. Weight Watchers has curbed some of my cooking, not totally a bad if I find a good recipe that works with my new eating lifestyle it is really exciting for me.

Spicy Thai Wraps has become a new staple for me. Quick and easy to make as well as quite tasty.

1 tsp. oil
1 cup packaged coleslaw (no dressing)
crushed red pepper to taste (start with 1/4 tsp)

Cook coleslaw and pepper in oil till wilted and tender, app. 3 minutes.

2 oz. turkey
5 chopped peanuts
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp soy sauce

Add the above to hot skillet with coleslaw mixture. Cook till heated through.

Divide between two Carb Balanced Whole Wheat Tortillas. On WW, this recipe counts as 4 points. Quite filling.

It's been so long since I blogged I am not really sure where to begin... It is not that I haven't had things I want to say. Just truly haven't had the time, or the desire if the time is there.

I have been knitting quite a bit. I am so close to finishing Smoda's blanket that I am having a hard time putting down the knitting. My goal was to finish it before the end of January and I believe I will be able to do it. My only concern is I must border the blanket with a crocheted edge and I am not sure if I have enough of each color. Oh well, I will know in the next few days.

I have also been reading lately...well that is not quite true. I read all the time, but lately I am reading more. My current book is World Without End. I am enjoying it as much as I did Pillars of the Earth years ago. Medieval history is so fascinating.

My big news is that I will be attending a knitting retreat. Not just any knitting retreat, but Sheri from the Loopy Ewe is hosting Spring Fling '08 in St. Louis. I can hardly wait. I am still pinching myself that RacerDad was okay with me attending. Especially since it is in the middle of baseball season. With three boys playing ball, two at the select level, we have loads of games and practices.

Well, I feel better now. At least I have updated something!
