I felt like eggs and cheese again this morning so this time I made an egg beater omelet with broccoli, onions, asparagus and reduced fat cheese with some tabasco on top and a piece of wheat toast:

Then it was off to Lisa's for the Stretch video for P90X. I really needed it! My hamstrings are tight tight tight!!
I wanted to use the rest of the brown rice and asian sauce from our chicken the other night so I threw together a shrimp stir fry with broccoli, pea pods, carrots and asparagus. It was FABULOUS.

I decided to use the Vitamix for the first time and make hummus. Hummus is something that perplexes me. I have yet to find a good recipe. I try and try and nothing compares to my favorites: Zankou chicken's hummus, Trader Joe's Mediterranean hummus and Costco's hummus. I tried the recipe from the Vitamix cookbook and added a little more garlic. The consistency was perfect but it still didn't taste the way I like it. Maybe it will taste better tomorrow after it sits?

I did bring it out when Superbowl started (Go Saints!) and ate it with red bell pepper. Does anyone have a hummus recipe they like?
While watching the game, I had a glass of red wine:

Dinner was Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore. I took a pound of chicken and cut it into bite size pieces and put in in the slow cooker. I then added 28oz spaghetti sauce, 2 chopped green bell peppers, 8oz sliced mushrooms, a diced medium size onion, 4 minced garlic cloves and some red pepper flakes, dried thyme, basil, oregano and some garlic powder and cooked it on low for about 8 hours.

I served it over whole wheat spaghetti. It was pretty tasty!! I froze the leftovers (this serves six by the way) for another dinner. Love that!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. I agree with you on the hummus- I've tried two different recipes, neither came anywhere close to Sabra or Costco's. What do they do to their hummus to make it so good??
